Kingston Workflow Station and Readers Review

Final Thoughts

If you are a digital creator organizing your workflow is incredibly important for productivity and Kingston’s Workflow Station and Readers definitely help you get the job done. You get one central hub with four spots where you can install different modules depending on your needs. On top of that you can use the Workflow Station with any USB-C device that fits in the slot and has a female USB-C connection. While organizing your workflow you are also organizing your desk as you don’t need multiple different readers all across your desk, the Workflow Station keeps everything in one place and looks pretty sleek on your desk while doing it.

When it comes to speeds the Workflow Station itself is USB 3.2 gen 2 with the modules being USB 3.2 gen 1. With that you’ll be able to support the speeds of the latest SD and MicroSD cards as well as use portable SSDs either directly connected to the hub or using the mini hub module. Speed is of course important if you are shooting large 4K video as well as RAW images. No one wants to sit around and wait for their files to transfer. This is definitely an upgrade from the cheap $10 card reader out there.

Right now you can pick up the Kingston Workflow Station that come with the mini hub module for $59.99 at our favorite online retailer. The SD and MicroSD modules are selling for $24.99 each, but you can get everything (Workflow Station, mini hub module, SD module, microSD module) for $105.91. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Kingston Workflow Station and Readers a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
