The Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader (UDMA 7) is a memory card reader equipped with a USB 3.0 interface supporting data transfer rates of up to 500MB/s. That's up to five times faster than USB 2.0 speeds. Achieve a maximum read speed of 150MB/s with the fastest compatible memory cards: CF 1000x. The reader is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices. It supports UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) 7 cards, which feature substantially accelerated speeds. Compatible card formats include CompactFlash (CF), SDXC / SDHC UHS-I, and SD.
The Lexar Pro USB 3.0 reader is a superb choice for photo and video professionals seeking to significantly speed up workflow and get the most out of their sophisticated memory cards and computers. However, the card will also serve amateurs and enthusiasts well. The reader allows for concurrent transfers--in other words, it's capable of reading both SD and CF cards simultaneously. Additionally, it enables easy card-to-card file transfers. The LED activity light indicates when a transfer is complete.
The reader's convenient pop-up design protects card slots when they're not in use. Its compact size makes it easily portable, as do its smooth contours, which allow you to slip the device easily in and out of your photo bag or briefcase.
Like all Lexar memory equipment, the reader has been subjected to extensive testing in the Lexar Quality Labs to ensure the highest performance, compatibility, quality and reliability.
