Kingston Workflow Station – a new 4 bay dock with USB 3.2 gen 2 speeds

by | Jan 30, 2021 | Memory, Workflow

Post in progress – I will add to this post as I go along and use Workflow Station!

Kingston reached out to me through a mutual acquaintance and asked me if I wanted to test the new “Workflow Station” and I did. Since Lexar sadly killed of their Workflow Hub I have actually been looking for a new solution.

USB-C connection

The workflow station has it’s own power supply and a USB-C Gen2 connection which offers great transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps, but do note that the readers only support USB 3.2 Gen 1, which means 5Gbps.

The dock supports up to four Workflow Readers simultaneously. The USB Mini Hub, Sd reader and microSD reader and the 4 bays have regular USB-C connectors, and that means you can use the dock with your smaller portable SSD drives from ex. Lexar and Samsung. They go right in there and appears on you desktop. Very neat! Kingstons says “Compatible with Kingston Workflow Products only.” But that does’nt seem to be true. Prob. means that Kingston won’t guarantee it.

My dock configureation is 2 x dual SD readers, 1 x dual Micro SD reader and one USB miniHub that supports USB-A and USB-C .

I like that the dock sits flat and stable on my desk and has the 4 bays. Like I said above it also supports my pocket sized SSD drives from Lexar and this removes some of the irritation cable mess below my desk. Also like that since I have 2 x dual sd readers I can get several cards ready for import when I get back from a shoot and empty them simultaneously like I can with the Lexar dock.
