ProGrade Digital does the double with twin SD card reader

We like the ProGrade Digital range of card readers –  one of the models is already our top choice in our best card reader guide. But there is now a new addition to the family – that offers two SD-format card slots in the one reader.

This is high-performance reader, designed for those who want the fastest download speeds (and have the computers that allow this). It uses the USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard – which  allows transfer speeds of 10Gb/s (or 1.25GB/s) – which is twice as fast as more usual USB 3.1 Gen 1 models. What's more it can transfer your images and videos at this speed from both slots simultaneously. It is compatible with both UHS-I and UHS-II SD cards.

It comes with cables to allow connection to a either your computer's USB-C or USB-socket. Like other models in this range, this reader has a magnetic plate so that it attaches to your laptop.

The existing three twin-slot models in this Workflow Reader range offer:

• two microSDXC card slots
• SD and CFast card slots
• SD and CompactFlash slots

The twin SD model will sell for $79.99.
