With read speeds of [up to] 1050MB/s1 the new device from Lexar could be the perfect tool for transferring files on the go. The new pro-grade reader can transfer large numbers of high-quality images and even RAW 4K video from a CFexpress Type B card at USB 3.1 Gen 2 speeds. 

Its compact design can easily slip into a pocket in your camera bag and won’t take up much room on your desk and, of course, works seamlessly with Lexar’s Professional CFexpress Type B cards, which boast capacities from 64GB to 512GB.
