      Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow SR1 Card Reader for SDHC/SDXC Cards:

      I use this to transfer still images and video from my SD cards. Fastest transfer rates I've experienced, and absolutely no hiccups in use.

      Highly recommended.

            I have a USB 2.0 reader so I decided to get a USB 3.0 reader since I have 3.0 in the desktop I built. For the money it's great but I don't see nor did I expect a vast improvement in speed but there is some increase. It's well made also

              Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow SR1 Card Reader for SDHC/SDXC Cards:

              I use this to read Compact Flash cards.

              Good
              1. The SD card slides in more easily and more securely than other readers I've used.
              2. It is USB 3.0 and is very fast.
              3. It works as a stand alone reader and also as reader for the Lexar HR1 Hub.

              Bad
              1. If you lose the included USB 3.0 Type A male to USB B male cable it will be harder to find than most USB cables. IMHO, they should have used a USB Type A to Type A which are far more common especially when traveling internationally.

              2. Very Bulky. About 5x the size of other CF readers

              I have used many different types of CF cards of many different capacities and this card reader has read them all flawlessly. Unusual type of USB cable used. no extra USB cables for this thing laying around.

                      Heavy duty.
                      You stick your card in and it quickly dumps the images where you meant them to go.
                      I didn't buy the complete hub, only just the two card readers that I would need.

                      Comments about Lexar Professional Workflow SR1 Card Reader for SDHC/SDXC Cards:

                      This Lexar reader works on its own as a USB 3.0 connected SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader, or in the Lexar 4-bay hubs (Professional Workflow HR1 (USB 3.0), HR2 (Thunderbolt). I use it with the hub when I need to use a co-worker's video camera or my Nikon 1 series cameras alongside my Nikon D4, which means I fill up the other slots in the hub with XQD/CF readers.

                      This delivers speed for the rarer UHS-I cards that provide the fastest SD performance. There is a newer UHS-II spec and one or two cards on the market that are other-worldly fast, but this unit lacks the spec. I was somewhat surprised Lexar didn't add it, but the current price it is very reasonable unless you need that UHS-II spec. Lexar probably will ship a UHS-II spec version when the cards become more prevalent.

                      I think these individual units are overly large for their purpose, which exacerbates things in the even larger hubs, but they are at least rugged and solidly built. They have a too-bright operation light that you may find distracting - I'm considering some semi-transparent tape to reduce the intensity while still allowing it to be visible.

                      I also wish these units had both Thunderbolt and USB connections (they only offer USB 3.0) - they can be used in the Thunderbolt Hub that will ship soon however.

                        Very happy with this cf card reader. I've tried multiple different readers and brands with no success. The prongs would get bent or they wouldn't connect at all. This Lexar has been great.. quick transfer, immediate connectivity and reliability. And the price... fantastic.

                          I am glad I bought it.

                                Even though my USB port is only USB2, this still downloads images faster than my old USB2 reader. I would image it would download that much faster with a USB3 port. It feels well made, and works well as a stand-alone card reader with the short cable included.

                                I needed an external card reader to move from desktop to laptop and I wanted a durable and well made product. I also needed a reader for one type of card, not several. It works great and has a very solide feel to it. Thanks Lexar!
