When it comes to maximising transfer speed, SABRENT has invested heavily. The SABRENT Thunderbolt 3 & USB 3 to CFexpress card reader makes the most of the read and write speeds of the format, enabling you to download content at a far greater rate than most other readers.
As it stands, this is one of the only Thunderbolt 3 card readers on the market, and using it makes a huge difference in transferring rates, almost doubling the speeds at which files can be transferred from the card to the machine compared with standard USB Type-C readers.
The speed is just one aspect of this card reader; the other is the superb build quality. The drive is encased in a silicon jacket that helps protect it against knocks and bashes in the kit bag.
The SABRENT Thunderbolt 3 & USB, 3 to CFexpress card reader, is, however, just a very fast and therefore expensive card reader, and with many cheaper and slower options out there, you’ll need to be sure that the cost of this card reader is worth it for your workflow.
