This unit holds multiple card readers in it, up to four at a time in any combination. I'm currently loading up two XQD readers, a CF reader and a SD reader, but someone else could have four SD readers or any other combo - There will also be a CF Pro reader soon. Another option is an SSD cartridge in one slot, which could be very cool, but I have not tested one currently.

I bought the USB version of the tower for my iMac at home which has USB 3.0 and a Fusion drive (SSD and Spining disk hard drives mixed via software). In this setup copying from each card was very quick, but not full speed for the faster cards. This limitation is likely due to the limitations of the Fusion drive (or possibly from being connected to a USB 3.0 Hub). One cool feature of having up to four readers attached to one source is the opportunity to sweep photos off of multiple cards at one time, for what you might hope to be four-times the speed. I suspect the unit is capable of something approaching 4x, but you'll need a fast disk to write to, like a fast SSD. I have one in my laptop but the laptop is just old enough to lack USB 3.0, so I can't test it on SSD speeds yet - I will be buying a Thunderbolt version of this unit for traveling with my laptop and then I suspect i'll see very fast speeds on sweeping multiple cards at once. In my testing with a spinning disk hard drive involved multiple card sweeps at once were not that fast, but the overhead that slows things down is very likely the spinning hard disk and an SSD would likely speed things up.

Some individual speed results were 58 MB/sec from a 600x UHS-I Lexar SDHC card, fairly fast, about 60% of the cards maximum speed, while a 1000x Lexar CF card and a Sony H-series, 125MB/sec card both hit about 92MB/sec individually, about 60/70% of what the cards can do on an SSD. This all points to the spinning disk hard drive slowing down these fast cards a bit, but still allowing for decent performance. Using other card readers on Expresscard 34 and Firewire ports on my laptop I have seen the cards hit full rated speeds writing to the laptop's SSD, and I expect the Lexar Hub will support full speed when the disk it writes to is fast enough. There is bound to be some overhead when transferring four at once but I would not be surprised to see four cards pushing the ability of even fast SSDs, especially on the Thunderbolt model that will ship in a few weeks.

Pros and cons:

Pros:
-- It is a fast unit with fast connections.
-- Individual units can be pulled to work on their own (via USB 3.0 only).
-- It requires only one port, either USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt, for up to four units, saving you from multiple cords connected to a laptop that might not support that many connections or might have ports occupied with other connections.
-- It provides a ton of flexibility with up to four slots for any card you need (among CF, XQD, SD/SDHC/SHXC and CF Pro (not yet shipping)).
-- It offers XQD readers as an option, thank goodness! - Nikon D4/D4s shooters have limited options for readers and didn't get left out here.
--Along with the ability to switch out individual card readers, there is a cool opportunity to use the SSD-based insets for quick and easily transferred storage. Write to the SSD insert, do some work on it in the field, that evening transfer it to your home computer's Hub and copy it to your archive disk(s).
--The hub and the individual inserts are well built and rugged, with the foot of the hub grippy and solid.
-- It supports reading up to four cards at once.
Cons:
--I wish that Lexar would start building flash card units for pros that were not so bulky - The old FireWire readers were bulky, and the new individual readers for this hub are bulky and the hub is probably twice as wide as necessary and 2/3x as tall and deep as they really needed. Some bulk and density would be welcome to make the unit secure and to protect the cards when they are inserted, especially Compact Flashcard pins, but there seems to be a lot of wasted space -- which is still ok for desktop users, I will have no problems with the unit for my iMac -- but the thunderbolt unit traveling with my laptop is going to be really bulky in the bag. I will put up with it for the convenience of working with multiple cards in one unit and having a Thunderbolt interface when going mobile with my laptop but I will do so grudgingly.
-- The lights that show up in operation - they are incredibly bright, distractingly so. I'd love it if Lexar had brightness option on these, because a few folks might like the bright lights but I think they are distracting.
-- Power is required for the Hub, which is going to be an occasional issue for travelers like me as I go to photo assignments with limited or no AC power. I would have been very pleased to see the unit be powered over USB or at least powered over Thunderbolt for the Thunderbolt model. USB 3.0 users can take the individual units out and connect without power in a situation where AC outlets are not available, but thats far less elegant.
-- The individual units connect to the hub via USB 3.0 -- That will allow them to be used individually via USB 3.0, but I would have preferred a Thunderbolt port on each, or an option to buy either thunderbolt- or USB-connecting individual units and have the hubs support both connections.

Short version: Great idea, a few flaws, failed within a week.Long version: I shoot timelapse and can use CF, XQD, and SD all on the same shoot. So I bought 4 CF modules, and one XQD and one SD module. It adds up. I purchased this specifically to be able to do multiple, simultaneous transfers from a variety of media cards.For that task, it works extremely well - I was able to copy off to a fast SSD from 3 CFs and one XQD at a combined, sustained rate of about 420 MB/sec. If I had faster cards, it could likely have gone faster. So for that, it is GREAT. If you are buying this to get faster downloads into Lightroom, it will only offer convenience, not greater speed - my $ Lexar Pro Combo (CF/SD) Reader is a bit faster. But for convenience, it is great to have up to 4 readers live and plugged in, all from a single USB 3.0 cable (they offer a Thunderbolt version as well, for $)The downsides, and why only 2 not 4 stars: - It comes with a small power inverter, and requires it. Sigh. So if you were thinking of doing high speed transfers in the field, no go. Individual modules will work standalone just using the provided USB 3.0 cable, but the hub requires plugging it into a wall. -the cables on the device side are the chunky, looks-like-a-printer-cable - so the flat USB 3.0 cables you're probably using with your other small devices won't work with this.-THE BIGGEST PROBLEM - MY PARTICULAR UNIT DIED WITHIN A WEEK. I'm very, VERY glad I wasn't relying on this for a job! I plugged it in and left it plugged in, blinded by the overly bright blue LED when working in a dark studio, but when I came in one day less than a week after I purchased it, the light was dark. I don't know and almost don't care whether it is the power inverter or the unit itself - I bought something I wanted to rely on, and it died. So I'm sending it back for a replacement. Overall, this thing is great for the purposes of using fewer ports, taking up less space than 4 individual readers, and multiple simultaneous transfers. This thing is NOT great if you want to make your Lightroom imports go faster, or want to rely on this particular one to actually, you know, WORK.

    I was hesitant about investing in this just to make dumping CF cards easier & faster, but I am SO glad I did! Now after weddings, I can dump 4 cards at a time at lightning speed and go to bed!!

      I am growing my photography business from hobbyist to professional and the professional Lexar 4-bay-card reader has been a life saver. I frequently have 8-10 cards per wedding between my second shooter and myself. I can download 4 cards in the matter of 15 minutes or so. Now I'm not waiting for each card to download before switching each card out. LOVE...LOVE...IT!!!

            Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow HR1 Hub:

            The skinny: if you employ multiple media cards of mixed formats, and need a fast "notepad" flash drive, this is system is a huge time saver! Yes, the price-point is high, but the time saved rounds that out quickly. Consider also the ability to take each light, compact module on-location as a stand-alone and you have a nearly-perfect system.
            The Lexar HR modular system specs are well-deliniated by B&H, so I'll just add my agreement with the other positive reviews. I bought my hub and modules in April '15 and have given them a long road test. My set-up has two SD card modules, a Micro SD module and a 512gb flash drive unit. (I keep a CF module too, even though I don't currently have a camera employing CF cards. Still it comes in handy for rental cameras or helping out friends.)
            The USB 3.0 speeds are more than sufficient. It's the ability to rack-up 4 or 5 cards after a shoot, start the transfer and walk away that's the big win here.
            I debated buying the Micro SD reader, as it seemed more sensible to keep transferring from my GoPro's, or using a host card. Now I can't imagine not having it. If you own multiple GoPro's it's a genuine boon: you won't regret it.
            The 512gb flash drive: Here again I asked, "do I truly need this?" The answer: yes! On the road it's savior; docked at home, it makes a great digital "scratch pad" I use it as a 'holding pen' to stash in-progress files rather than cluttering my Mac's desktop. In one case, after a Time Machine failure, it saved some work I'd have otherwise lost.
            Hope this helps with your workflow and budgeting decisions.

            Hi all,
            May sound foolish, but I bought this with the SSD assuming it would be able to copy cards to its own drive itself, so be useful for field unloading of the mondo 4K field media our new FS7 camera churns out. It does NOT do this... no brains of its own, does nothing without a laptop attached.
            A real pity, would've been a hell of a useful if it did!
            Also makes the SSDs a bit silly in my mind; why bother with something proprietary like this when you can just buy generic 2.5 inch drives cheaper?

                  How I use.
                  I use all 4 sockets on it to simultaneously transfer 2 SD cards and 2 Compact Flash cards via a USB 3.0 connection to my laptop or desktop

                  Good
                  Plug & play
                  Its transfers are reliable and quick.

                  Bad
                  Generally I found it to be a clumsy device to use.
                  1. You cannot load all of the cards at one time because then there is no way to know which card is which drive letter. You have to insert each card while Windows Explorer is open and watch for a new drive when the card is inserted. You need to write this down because if you remove and then reinsert a card, even the same card, the drive letter may or may not be the same since the Operating System issues the drive letter.

                  It would so much easier to use if the drive letter of each socket displayed on the hub, or if the cards had unique names like socket 1, socket 2, etc. or if their was an on-screen representation of hub with the drive letter for each socket.

                  2. There is no way to reboot the hub. If you eject all cards, in Windows 7, you then have to unplug the hub and reconnect it before you can add new cards. It should have a button to push to reset it or a way to do that from the computer.

I'm glad i have this because now after a shoot all day and night I don't need to wait very long for all my 32 gb compact flash cards to load on my computer. Its reliable and powerful, just what the doctor ordered to make sure all my files will be accounted for. Don't settle for anything cheaper than this guys, its worth getting it.

                        This is an outstanding design. The card readers work as a unit and also work independently.

                          I love clearing 4 32GB SD Cards in 20 minutes. I couldn't grasp how fast that was until I actually used this for the first time. I was clearing 20-30 cards at a time one-by-one with a USB 2.0 single card reader after filming all weekend! This streamlined everything and now I can focus on editing and not staring at a progress bar that used to mean I was making no progress.

                          Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow HR1 Hub:

                          This unit holds multiple card readers in it, up to four at a time in any combination. I'm currently loading up two XQD readers, a CF reader and a SD reader, but someone else could have four SD readers or any other combo - There will also be a CF Pro reader soon. Another option is an SSD cartridge in one slot, which could be very cool, but I have not tested one currently.

                          I bought the USB version of the tower for my iMac at home which has USB 3.0 and a Fusion drive (SSD and Spining disk hard drives mixed via software). In this setup copying from each card was very quick, but not full speed for the faster cards. This limitation is likely due to the limitations of the Fusion drive (or possibly from being connected to a USB 3.0 Hub). One cool feature of having up to four readers attached to one source is the opportunity to sweep photos off of multiple cards at one time, for what you might hope to be four-times the speed. I suspect the unit is capable of something approaching 4x, but you'll need a fast disk to write to, like a fast SSD. I have one in my laptop but the laptop is just old enough to lack USB 3.0, so I can't test it on SSD speeds yet - I will be buying a Thunderbolt version of this unit for traveling with my laptop and then I suspect i'll see very fast speeds on sweeping multiple cards at once. In my testing with a spinning disk hard drive involved multiple card sweeps at once were not that fast, but the overhead that slows things down is very likely the spinning hard disk and an SSD would likely speed things up.

                          Some individual speed results were 58 MB/sec from a 600x UHS-I Lexar SDHC card, fairly fast, about 60% of the cards maximum speed, while a 1000x Lexar CF card and a Sony H-series, 125MB/sec card both hit about 92MB/sec individually, about 60/70% of what the cards can do on an SSD. This all points to the spinning disk hard drive slowing down these fast cards a bit, but still allowing for decent performance. Using other card readers on Expresscard 34 and Firewire ports on my laptop I have seen the cards hit full rated speeds writing to the laptop's SSD, and I expect the Lexar Hub will support full speed when the disk it writes to is fast enough. There is bound to be some overhead when transferring four at once but I would not be surprised to see four cards pushing the ability of even fast SSDs, especially on the Thunderbolt model that will ship in a few weeks.

                          Pros and cons:

                          Pros:
                          -- It is a fast unit with fast connections.
                          -- Individual units can be pulled to work on their own (via USB 3.0 only).
                          -- It requires only one port, either USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt, for up to four units, saving you from multiple cords connected to a laptop that might not support that many connections or might have ports occupied with other connections.
                          -- It provides a ton of flexibility with up to four slots for any card you need (among CF, XQD, SD/SDHC/SHXC and CF Pro (not yet shipping)).
                          -- It offers XQD readers as an option, thank goodness! - Nikon D4/D4s shooters have limited options for readers and didn't get left out here.
                          --Along with the ability to switch out individual card readers, there is a cool opportunity to use the SSD-based insets for quick and easily transferred storage. Write to the SSD insert, do some work on it in the field, that evening transfer it to your home computer's Hub and copy it to your archive disk(s).
                          --The hub and the individual inserts are well built and rugged, with the foot of the hub grippy and solid.
                          -- It supports reading up to four cards at once.
                          Cons:
                          --I wish that Lexar would start building flash card units for pros that were not so bulky - The old FireWire readers were bulky, and the new individual readers for this hub are bulky and the hub is probably twice as wide as necessary and 2/3x as tall and deep as they really needed. Some bulk and density would be welcome to make the unit secure and to protect the cards when they are inserted, especially Compact Flashcard pins, but there seems to be a lot of wasted space -- which is still ok for desktop users, I will have no problems with the unit for my iMac -- but the thunderbolt unit traveling with my laptop is going to be really bulky in the bag. I will put up with it for the convenience of working with multiple cards in one unit and having a Thunderbolt interface when going mobile with my laptop but I will do so grudgingly.
                          -- The lights that show up in operation - they are incredibly bright, distractingly so. I'd love it if Lexar had brightness option on these, because a few folks might like the bright lights but I think they are distracting.
                          -- Power is required for the Hub, which is going to be an occasional issue for travelers like me as I go to photo assignments with limited or no AC power. I would have been very pleased to see the unit be powered over USB or at least powered over Thunderbolt for the Thunderbolt model. USB 3.0 users can take the individual units out and connect without power in a situation where AC outlets are not available, but thats far less elegant.
                          -- The individual units connect to the hub via USB 3.0 -- That will allow them to be used individually via USB 3.0, but I would have preferred a Thunderbolt port on each, or an option to buy either thunderbolt- or USB-connecting individual units and have the hubs support both connections.

                            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.
