For awhile i was moving files from my R5 to laptop using canons default tool and man this is a game changer, copying files over is so much faster now that i have this that my workflow seems seamless and a bonus is the reader is magnetized so you can stick it to your computers casing without worrying about it flopping about

this is sh*t it doesn't work, and to download sh*t online u gotta pay, it's already overpriced and doesn't work. and B&H isn't granting my return request. so this is just great

Not exactly.....

I bought the drive to cover both XQD and CFexpress cards. Turns out the drive requires significant effort to get it to read an XQD card (Pro tip- read the directions all the way through!), and even then, XQD functionality doesn't currently work with M1 Macs (maybe this summer?). It does work fast on CFexpress cards, and with my new MacBook Pro, the uploads are the fastest I've ever seen. If you only want CFexpress functionality, it is a great performer....

Should be required for your R5

Bought this to transfer footage from my Canon R5/Sony Tough CFExpress G cards. Transfers are 6x faster now ... so awesome. Just get it.

I bet this works well with CFexpress cards. From what I can tell, it does NOT work with just any QXD, but only Sony cards, and that is after you install an extra program. I own mostly SanDisk, so that's a major problem for me.

Insane Speeds

Just a heads I have not used this for XQD cards only CFexpress- but this thing is insanely fast on MacBook Pro 16 Intel, MacBook Air M1, and now my MacBook Pro M1 Max - not sure what the one review about it not working with any cords is about, it works will all my thunderbolt 3 and 4 cables so who knows. I have their smaller less expensive UDB-C version as well but it is in no way as fast as this thunderbolt version.

Is this card reader compatible with a M1 Max MacBook Pro for both types of cards?
Asked by: Rick
The ProGrade Digital CFexpress Type-B & XQD Single-Slot Thunderbolt 3 Workflow Reader will be fully compatible with a M1 Max MacBook Pro for CFexpress Type-B cards. XQD cards however would require the proper XQD driver. Unfortunately the driver for this has yet to be released. You can find a link to the driver on ProGrades page here. https://progradedigital.com/xqd-driver-download/. Unfortunately the proper driver is not available yet.

Hi Reed, No this reader is not made to work in that hub. This reader uses a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port and the Lexar readers and hub use and older and slower connector.
