Lexar Professional Workflow
From £20, $30
This modular system can be specced with dedicated readers not just for SD and CF, but also formats like XQD and the impressive – if barely used – C-Fast 2.0. Use each reader as a standalone device, or, if you want less clutter, mount them in Lexar’s docking hub. Performance is first class, thanks to fast read/write speeds with SD and CF cards. A 134MB-per-second maximum CF read rate is the fastest figure we extracted from any reader, but in all other tests the Professional Workflow couldn’t eke out a clear lead, making the combined system cost hard to justify.
