->> Hey Marvin. I own the four-bay Thunderbolt hub and have had no problems with it - using three CF bays and one SD bay. Nor have I had any issues Ingesting via Photomechanic. The thing is really fast (and big) - I'm using 1066x speed Lexar cards. It has its own power plug so it stays with my desktop iMac only - therefore in my opinion it's not ideal for deadline run and gun field work. Only drawback to me so far is its high price for the full setup.

->> Not really the answer you are looking for. I'm using one from OWC. http://bit.ly/1MOEBEY
At this point I'm only running a USB 2 card reader through it as I'm waiting for Sandisk to replace a defective 3.0 reader. PhotoMechanic is find with that. Only one issue so far. I can't connect to my company network when the ethernet cable is plugged into the hub. The ethernet cable had to go into a thunderbolt adapter and straight into the MacBook. I am able to daisy chain Firewire 800 devices off the hub.

->> I've been using one for over a year with a PC and Downloader Pro. 3 CFs and 1 SD, sometimes 4 CFs. Every so often it needs a re-insert of a card when starting up, otherwise its fast, steady and efficient. I frequently have all 4 bays working at the same time and it works as advertised.

We're looking at picking up a couple HR2's this year as well. I just wish they'd release a CFR2 (Thunderbolt CF reader module) so it could be used independently out in the field. Right now you have to use the HR2 hub if you want CF downloads over Thunderbolt.

->> @Kevin- The CF reader module does appear to have a Thunderbolt port. Are you sure that it won't work outside the hub? I've not been able to find any info regarding that either way in my research.

->> Stephen and Stanley. That is a CFast reader, not a Compact Flash reader. The two technologies, cards and readers, are not interchangeable.

->> Marvin, remember that your card reader, no matter what interface it uses (FW800, USB3, T-Bolt), is only going to be as fast as the read speed of your cards. A 15 or 30 or even 50MB/s card is going to be the weak link in your ingest chain.

New card readers will mean new cards, or you're wasting money. Look for at least 80 to 120 MB/s cards, minimum.
