Lexar Professional Workflow XR1 USB 3.0 XQD Card R&hellip by Lexar
Superb card reader. Description is misleading. This item ONLY reads XQD cards but can be fitted into a four bay 'dock' which allows you to simultaneously read XQD, Compact Flash and SD by buying separate modules to insert into the dock. I only needed XQD and the reader can be used without the dock by plugging in the supplied USB 3 cable.

4.0 out of 5 stars We bought two, 24 Mar 2014
Bought one for a niece who is three and my eight year-old son thought it was so much fun we eventually bought a second one for him too - or rather Rudolph and the elves did. Nothing wrong with make-believe at 8!
