Lexar Workflow Review – SD and CF Cards Resume The

Of course all of the storage devices and readers match Lexars range of cards, including the 160MB/s rated CF model and 90MB/s rated UHS-1 SD card. Those products all arrive with data recovery software as well as protective cases with Lexar offering a lifetime warranty on all flash media.

Lexar Workflow Review – Setup and Performance

Setting up the various Workflow products couldn’t be easier. For each individual module in stand alone mode we just plug in the USB 3.0 connector and insert our card (or with the DD512 view it as a USB drive). For modular mode in the HR1 and HR2, we connect that via USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt and just slot in our readers/storage. A blue LED  on each reader signifies power on and activity. The DD512 featuring the same LED as well as a set of white lights to give a quick indication of free space.

In terms of speed, we hit the advertised rating for 450/250MB/s on the DD512 and each reader allowed us to hit the peak read/write speeds of the Lexar cards we used for testing. For those who have access to faster UHS-1 write products, no issues there either. We were able to hit 90 MB/s on that front, with the HR1 also allowing full speed read/write from multiple cards at the same time. It was also possible to copy direct from card to DD512.

Lexar Workflow Review – User Experience and Conclusion

Starting with the build quality and design of the HR1 and HR2, and associated modules, we have a fairly sturdy design. It feels solid enough with no flex on the main surfaces and the base appears to be well applied. The gloss finish is a bit of a nightmare to keep clean, a real dust and fingerprint magnet which we would have liked to be matt but otherwise the unit looks good. The same can be said of each module although the readers do have a bit of flex to their top surface; not enough to concern us though.

Would we have changed or added anything else? It would have been fantastic if there was a button which with a single press copied all the data from installed cards to the DD512/256 but otherwise, no.

Set-up is of course simple. Plug and play essentially. It was also good to see that the speeds we achieved when reading and writing to each device were as advertised and that there was support for the fastest cards available. With the added bonus that a modular design means we can take each module as a stand alone reader/drive or swap them out for future, higher spec or alternate models.

Who do we see this set of products appealing to? If you happen to have a camera with multiple card types, shooting to both. Or even multiple cameras capturing stills and video separately then these are for you. Not only will it allow you to copy the files to your workstation from multiple sources at the same time, the USB 3.0 (or Thunderbolt on HR2) will allow you to do it faster than the majority of integrated or USB 2.0 card readers. There is also the option to copy direct to DD512 or DD256 and ensure that as quickly as possible a backup of your work is created and stored safely.

Summary: A very flexible set of flash/storage products which will have a positive impact on the workflow of many creative professionals.
