Summary: There are not a lot of external USB 3.0-equipped card readers out there. This means that users who require such a device do not really have much of a choice. While readers in the US may need to fork over a bit more money than their European counterparts, the card reader does deliver everything one could ask for. The biggest issue is actually the lack of really fast memory cards.
Pros: Great price in Europe, Solid and compact design to protect the card slots, Excellent performance—ready for even faster cards in the future, Supports all the latest CompactFlash- and SD standards, Blue activity LED, 5 year warranty, Thick, high-quality USB 3.0 cable included
Cons: Rather pricy in the USA, Most off the shelf memory cards won't be a match for this card reader, Can only read 2 major formats
Excerpt: Lexar, part of the Crucial / Micron group, are known as the professional choice for photographers, and with that they also command a price premium for their products. We find out if it's justified in our review of the latest high speed cards: the Lexar Professional 600x SDHC UHS-I memory card, available as 16GB or 32GB or SDXC 64GB; and the Lexar 1000X Professional Compact Flash card available as 16GB, 32GB or 64GB.
Pros: Extremely fast read/write times, particularly the CompactFlash card, Image Rescue 4 software included, SDHC card offers good value for money, Lifetime warranty
Cons: Flimsy connections on SDHC cards, High price for CompactFlash, Needs USB3 to benefit from these speeds when copying to PC
Summary: De Lexar Professional USB 3.0 dual-slot reader is een mooie compact kaartlezer die vooral uitblinkt in datasnelheid door het gebruik van USB 3.0. Een minpuntje is de korte USB 3.0 kabel die meegeleverd wordt. Verder kan ik het gebruik van deze kaartlezer zeker aanraden voor fotografen die regelmatig veel foto's over willen zetten naar hun computer.
