      Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow CFR1 Card Reader for CompactFlash Cards:

      I've always had a problem e-mailing my grandkids photos to their parents due to the fact I take then in raw (they all being so worthy of enlargement). But, now using a D800 I can send raw data to the sd card & jpg to the cf card and save each on separate drives on my computer. But the cf card has ruined pins on cheaper readers. No longer. The quality and construction stops all problems and at 3.0 is fast. You can't go wrong.

        Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow CFR1 Card Reader for CompactFlash Cards:

        I always had problems e-mailing grandkids' photos to their parents as I primarily took Raw pictures (for enlarging the many gems caught) for myself. Getting a new computer allowed me to load the SD card Raw photos on one drive and my fine jpeg CF photos on another drive from my D800. But I went through 2 less substantial readers until I purchased this Lexar on it own. PROBLEM SOLVED. The substantial loader prevents damage to card and pins and transfer occurs quickly. Don't waste money on less capable readers or more expensive readers. This is the one.

          Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow CFR1 Card Reader for CompactFlash Cards:

          Light weight but not too delicate! The deep slot makes the card secure when inserted, and keeps the pins safe. I like that they included caps to cover the slot when not in use, althought they are knocked off easily, and will probably get lost soon.

          Lexar CFR1 vs Lexar RDF8

          By Brett

          from CT

          About Me Semi-Professional

          Best Uses

          Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow CFR1 Card Reader for CompactFlash Cards:

          I bought this this card reader and the transcend card reader for a trip to Africa and tested both before leaving. Overall, the Lexar was marginally faster. However, it is reasonably bigger than the transcend card reader, it utilizes a propritery plug and only reads CF (Not that big of an issue). So ultimately, I decided to return the Lexar and buy a second transcend since the speed difference was marginal.

          Here are my test results:
          I tested both card readers using a San Disk Extreme Pro 16gb 160 MB/s CF card. The card had 9.17gb of raw pics on it. The computer I was using was a Macbook Pro with Retina display (so it has USB 3.0).

          Lexar download time directly to my MacBook SSD: 74 secs. (123MB/s)
          Transcend download time directly to my MacBook SSD: 91 secs. (100MB/s)

          Download time to a WD My Passport Ultra 2TB external Hard drive (card reader and external hard drive plugged into my laptop USB 3.0 ports):
          Lexar 2 minutes 16 secs (67MB/s)
          Transcend 2 minutes 36 secs (58MB/s)

          If I were just using this card reader for local processing and I intended to buy the hub, then I would recommend this card reader. But for travel, I like the transcend because it is compact, it doesn't use a proprietary plug, can read multiple card types and is cheaper. I can't speak to durability of either card reader, but given the Lexar is beefier, I would suspect it is more durable. Finally, if this card reader didn't use a proprietary plug type, and to a lesser extent, it was slightly smaller (while it is bigger than the transcend, it's still an acceptable travel size), I would have given it five stars.

              Worth every dollar!

              By Jeffrey

              from Colorado Springs

              Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow CFR1 Card Reader for CompactFlash Cards:

              I had previously used a $13 reader from [@]that would alwayse take a good 10 seconds to get it lined up just right so I could push my CF card into the many pins perfectly. Three weeks ago, one of my media school students forced a card in quickly and collapsed a pin nearly destroying my $100+ CF card! I held my composure and decided to invest in something a little better. This reader works just like it should. The card goes half way into it before it reaches the pins where it pushes into them perfectly every time without any fuss.

                I purchased this card reader for use as a stand-alone reader rather tan in the Lexar HR1 hub. It connects to my USB3 connector on the PC and is much more reliable than the "all-in-one" media card reader built into the PC.

                Based on this experience, I would definitely consider purchasing a HR1 hub and additional card readers if I needed more capacity.

                  I have a multi Rosewill USB 3.0 reader, and Sandisk Firewire 800 CF readers. The Rosewill's bay is too shallow causing broken pins, and not very responsive. Speed is so,so. The Sandisk FW800 reader is OK and used elsewhere.
                  This Lexar Professional Workflow CFR1 really shoked me how fast it responds to cards as they are inserted and how fast my RAW images load in Bridge. I was imediatley happy I chose this reader.

                        Well you know its a fast card reader that works well by itself with the supplied cable and in the Lexar Hub. We have 4 of these (=

                        The best feature to know about this CF reader is that the port is deep. This eliminates any bent pins from inserting the card and angles which happens a lot during busy environments or even just a small mistake.

                          I never knew such a fast reader existed until a friend suggested I try this Lexar reader! I was spending forever downloading all my raw data and decided to take the plunge and buy it. I downloaded and entire 16gb card in about 30 seconds with this reader! I am NEVER going back! Affordable, easy to use and makes downloading a breeze...needless to say I am super happy with the results!!

                            We're full time wedding photographers who ingest multiple cards at a time. After having another brand of card reader corrupt files on a regular basis I had settled for a slow but reliable usb2 reader and imported one card at a time. Now, with these, I can load up 4 CF cards at a time and get that going in the background. These fit conveniently into the Lexar Professional Workflow HR1 Hub which eliminates messy wires. Very clean. USB is fast.

                              After buying a new MacPro I discovered my Sony card reader was not backward compatible using my CF flash card. I needed a new one that was compatible with USB 3.0. I use both CF & SD cards but with the computer having a built in SD card reader, all I needed was one for CF. Compact, fast and an excellent choice that does not take up a lot of space. And a added plus, the USB cable is 36 inches long for those that need the extra reach.

                                  I used this card reader to upload photos to my computer. I bought the first one and liked it so much I ordered another. It is also build very solid. The features I really like about this card reader is you're only able to put your media card in one way. Opposed to many other card readers allowing you to put the media card in opposite the way it should go causing bent pins. I have replaced so many readers because of one pin getting bent. The bright blue light blinks as the card is read and stops blinking when done. I would like to see the 4 bay reader hub included.
