    What speeds are people getting for offloading their CFexpress cards with the Sandisk card reader? I'm sure I should be getting faster than 40MB/s - albeit I'm transferring to drives simultaneously.

    ha..hmm. I've been importing directly to FCPX so I haven't been really paying attention. Just tested a 7gB file to the internal drive on the MBP. 7 seconds. gulp. To my G-tech T3 Raid (HDD) 9 sec. sheesh.

    A 7GB file won't really stress the system, a card full of takes will. Not sure why mine is so slow...

    Ha.. ok.. well Iíll drain a card tomorrow and report back. Iíll bet it will be in the same range. No idea why yours would be that slow.. thatís like usb 2.0 speeds.

    I've been getting about 100-120MB/S, it varies.

    500Mb/s to my raid. Check your cables, usb-c cables are wide ranging and include USB 2.0 cables with no external markings.

    Re-tested with 313gb dump to my RAID, got 740mb/sec. Don't have enough space to dump that to my internal storage, I'm guessing it would be a good bit faster. As always, transfer speeds are just as dependent on the receiving device, so I'd be looking there first. If I dump to one of my archive drives, I'll bet I'd be getting around what Airwolf is seeing.

    Unless you’re transferring to a SSD RAID, you won’t achieve the speeds that the cards are capable of. The destination drive and potentially the cable used will be the limiting factor.
