Today’s review contains two products from Lexar Professional family – 2933x XQD 2.0 card and XQD 2.0 USB 3.0 reader. XQD 2.0 USB 3.0 reader has been released recently but tests wouldn’t be possible without a card in the same format. We are glad that Lexar lets us test both of these products. This is also first XQD card review on the FunkyKit.
Even though these products are designed for professionals, I think that all other users will be also interested what performance can achieve the latest flash cards.
