    There are dozens out there on the market. Try Amazon UK. Amazon US lists many pages of them.
    I've used a Lexar, and it's been just fine.

    I don't have a recommendation, just a suggestion on a feature that often gets missed. I bought a 7in1 reader at a Staples a few years back because I forgot to bring a microUSB cable to a site visit. Anyway, this particular reader had a CF slot that was the 1/2 height type. So while it worked for me on my site visit, it doesn't work on some of my older, thicker CF cards.

    Lexar is a good brand. I have been using one for a few years with the computer out in my shop (don't know the model number offhand).
