Compact enough to slip into a pocket or bag, the new card reader offers a simple plug-and-play interface with a USB 3.0 connector and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices at USB 2.0 speeds. With increasing numbers of professional cameras offering XQD card support and growing demand for 4K video, Lexar’s new XQD 2.0 USB 3.0 reader provides an efficient way to transfer professional video and photo content with reduced wait times. The reader comes with a limited five-year warranty. All Lexar product designs undergo extensive testing in the Lexar Quality Labs, facilities with more than 1,100 digital devices, to ensure performance, quality, compatibility, and reliability. The Lexar Professional XQD 2.0 USB 3.0 Reader will be available in late April with an RRP of AU$49.95 and NZ$54.95. For more information about Lexar products, visit
