This B&H Kit combines the Lexar Professional Workflow HR2 4-Bay Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 Hub with the Lexar Workflow CR2 Thunderbolt 2 CFast 2.0 Reader and the Lexar Professional Workflow 256GB Data Storage Drive . This kit is designed for those who want to transfer content from CFast 2.0 memory cards to their Windows or Mac compatible system. Additionally, the included 256GB of data storage, which can be used separately or integrated directly with the Workflow HR2 Hub, allows users to store up to 256GB of data. While this kit is designed to take advantage of Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0, it is also backwards compatible with Thunderbolt and USB 2.0.
The Lexar Professional Workflow HR2 4-Bay Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 Hub is a 4-bay hub that supports Lexar's Professional Workflow line of USB 3.0 storage drives and Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 card readers that are compatible with SDHC/SDXC UHS-I and UHS-II, CompactFlash UDMA 7, XQD, CFast 2.0, and microSDHC/microSDXC UHS-I cards. You can connect this hub using either Thunderbolt 2 or USB 3.0 technology, as well as add up to four flash-based storage drives to this hub and store transferred files. However, even if you connect this hub to the computer with Thunderbolt 2, the drives and readers will still operate at USB 3.0 speed. However, because Thunderbolt 2 supports a faster overall speed, you can use all four devices in the bay simultaneously, without suffering any degradation in transfer speed.
The Lexar Workflow CR2 Thunderbolt 2 CFast 2.0 Reader supports CFast 2.0 memory cards and features USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt 2 interfaces. It can be used with a workflow hub or on the go with an included USB cable.
The Lexar Professional Workflow 256GB Data Storage Drive is a flash-based storage drive that can be used solo or added to a Professional Workflow hub to quickly and easily store transferred files. Leveraging USB 3.0 speeds, the drive provides read transfer speeds up to 450 MB/s and write transfer speeds of up to 245 MB/s. It offers high-capacity 256GB storage, so that you have the space to back up large media files. The drive also comes with LED capacity indicators, so that you can see available storage space at a glance.
The configurable structure of the hub allows users to insert a variety of card reader types or 256 & 512GB storage drives based on personal needs. Please note that while this kit only includes a card reader for CFast 2.0 cards. Other Lexar-compatible card readers that support SDHC/SDXC, microSDHC/microSDXC, CompactFlash, and XQD cards, as well as the Workflow HR2 Hub, are available and sold separately.
