Bulky but rugged, works alone or in Hub

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.

Neat Idea

An in between, not really the best for travel and wouldn't likely use in my office. It's a nice concept but have really enjoyed the card readers that are a bit smaller.

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

            I use this card reader mainly for Class 10 SDXC cards. It gets about 30mb/s or higher, which is around the advertised speed of the card. I don't have the hub, but it comes with a USB3 cable, so you can connect it without. It is very helpful to have this card reader on hand!

            The only thing I don't like is that at one point it glitched on and off, and my SD card kept disappearing, but I believe that the USB cable wasn't attached securely, so it was probably a fluke.

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

              I switched to this after using a USB stick style reader that would heat up very quickly. This reader is at least as fast as the old one and stays nice and cool with prolonged use. It also stays plugged in on my desk, ready to go at a moment's notice. The real winning feature, though, is Lexar's modular design. That makes these readers a good investment for long-term use in any workflow.

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

                This is a great addition to add to the already amazing HR1 Hub. It can be used as a stand alone reader, which is nice...but for the same price you can get a multi card reader if you only want to transfer files from one card at a time. I needed more so I went with the HR1 Hub kit(which came with an SR2 SD card reader) and purchased 2 additional SR1 SD card readers. They all work great and transfer the files fast! I'll be purchasing the 512GB SSD for the remaining open slot.

                  Combine this card reader with usb 3.0 and fast SD card to get fast transfer of your files. I did not measure transfer speeds of this SR1 nor do I care to know exact numbers. All I can say it gets the job done. Packaging was great, B&H made transaction easy and simple.

                        Plug and play works well for our desktop. Our desktop's built-in card reader stopped working some time ago and I bought a cheap USB reader at that time, but it was a bit inconvenient making sure the cards were seated properly.

                        I got this with the purchase of some Lexar cards, and it's great to have it on the desk right below the monitor. Plug and play works well.
