Lexar makes accessing storage much easier with the HR-2. With support for Lexar's Professional Workflow line of USB 3.0 devices and Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 card readers, the HR2 allows you to add up to four flash-based storage devices. The drives and readers will still operate at USB 3.0 speed but, with Thunderbolt 2 supports, you gain a faster overall speed, and you can use all four devices in the bay at the same time, without slowing down. The HR2 is also backward compatible with Thunderbolt and USB 2.0 (at slower speeds), while using the same cables and connectors.
Simply plug the readers or storage devices into the HR2 and start transferring and archiving files. In addition, the HR2 provides two Thunderbolt 2 ports and one USB 3.0 port, allowing to daisy-chain with your existing setup. The two Thunderbolt 2 ports allow you to place the hub anywhere in your lineup of other Thunderbolt devices to create a customizable setup.
