      Nice unit, but no good for Lightroom

      The unit works really well in Windows Explorer. Fast downloads and the unit looks great on the desk - very tidy and nice only having a single cable to deal with!

      The unit works really well in Windows Explorer. Fast downloads and the unit looks great on the desk - very tidy and nice only having a single cable to deal with!

      It's a shame that it isn't supported any better with Lightroom as the hub doesn't do anything special at all - it is the same as plugging 4 readers into a standard USB3 hub. It is just a bit tidier and looks cooler sitting on the desk.

      You can still only download one card at a time in Lightroom, and once that card has completely finished downloading you need to then manually click on Import again and manually start the second card. When that second card has finished you have to manually click on Import and start the third card, etc. So on their website when they say, "So downloads may take longer to complete", you also need to allow for the time for you to watch the device and restart the Import sequence each time - hopefully Lightroom will add concurrent downloads in the future!

        I got sick of burning up cheap in tower card readers on my PC so I picked this guy up. Love that it's modular! Nice and fast and I've had no issues. Even comes with European power adapters and a nice long USB cable.

            The product is overall a great buy. It is very stable and fast.
            The only reason for the 4 starts is that when not in use the blue light at the bottom of the tower is always on. It would be nice to turn it on only when a card is inside the unit.

            Good quality. I am hoping this should last years to come.

                          first of all i have had this unit from when it came out. i use SD CF XQD on it. it is fast in use on all this products. on review here claims it can only read (Javi). well that is incorrect info. one can read from all and write to each from both computer and to/from each other. i just hope Lexar continues support for it.

                            I was using this for my desktop to transfer my work images on Lexar 1000X CF and SanDisk Extreme Pro SD cards. This device is super fast and I have not noticed any bottlenecks when I transfer the CF & SD cards to my system at the SAME TIME.

                            BTW, it's very pretty... :)

                                    I love my hub. Super easy to dump files after a long day of shooting, go to bed and be ready to go the next day. Awesome.

                                      I use this workflow solution almost every day. I have all four bays used for my SDHC cards. It makes life so much easier because four cards can be inserted at once and you can load the images to your computer. It is larger than I had thought it would be, but does not bother me at all. It is about the size of a 100 pack of DVDs. The other nice feature about this is that if I am shooting an event and want to dump images to my laptop to save card space, simply pull out a reader from its bay, grab your USB cable (comes with each reader you purchase) and head out the door. A very versatile product that has me completely satisfied!

                                      Wanted the capability at sports events to load both cards into laptop and this does the trick. Fast and reliable, but a bit bulky in the bag. Would be nice if they offered the same unit with two bays rather than four.

                                        We shoot weddings with 4 cameras. Needless to say, there are numerous cards to ingest afterwards. The ability to import 4 cards at a time allows me to do something else while that goes in the background. Indicator lights flash when a card is in use which is helpful to know when you eject particular items and want to remove them. We have 4 CF readers installed in ours and not having 4 different USB cables running to a messy bus is another plus. We've waited a long time for something like this. I wish there was a Thunderbolt HUB or perhaps both Firewire 800 and USB3 on the back but alas, the world is moving on from FW800.

                                              The unit works really well in Windows Explorer. Fast downloads and the unit looks great on the desk - very tidy and nice only having a single cable to deal with!

                                              It's a shame that it isn't supported any better with Lightroom as the hub doesn't do anything special at all - it is the same as plugging 4 readers into a standard USB3 hub. It is just a bit tidier and looks cooler sitting on the desk.

                                              You can still only download one card at a time in Lightroom, and once that card has completely finished downloading you need to then manually click on Import again and manually start the second card. When that second card has finished you have to manually click on Import and start the third card, etc. So on their website when they say, "So downloads may take longer to complete", you also need to allow for the time for you to watch the device and restart the Import sequence each time - hopefully Lightroom will add concurrent downloads in the future!
