The SxS PRO X Thunderbolt 3 Single-Slot Card Reader from Sonnet is a compact, professional SxS card reader for computers with Thunderbolt 3 ports. It is compatible with SxS PRO X cards, which offer nearly a 3x increase in maximum read speeds over the previous generation. Aside from SxS PRO X, this card reader may be used natively with SxS PRO+ E, SxS PRO+ D, SxS PRO+, SxS PRO, SxS-1, and SxS cards. Additionally, XQD and SD cards may be used via separately-sold adapters.

Sonnet built this card reader to drive data transfers at speeds up to 1250 MB/s for SxS PRO X cards, or 440 MB/s for SxS PRO+ media. Pocket-sized, rugged with an aluminum enclosure, and bus powered, this device is compatible with Windows and Mac. It may be connected to your Windows system using a Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4, or USB4 port, while Mac connectivity is limited to Thunderbolt 3. Included is a 1.6' Thunderbolt 3 cable and a ThunderLok3 retainer clip, which helps to prevent accidental cable disconnections.


Please note that this card reader is currently not compatible with M1 Macs, but a Sony M1-compatible driver for SxS cards is expected. Also, Sony AXS media is not supported.


General Features


A Suitable Travel Companion

When you need to travel light and don't have a large stack of cards to ingest, extra power bricks and cables take up extra space and can weigh you down. Sonnet's SxS PRO X Thunderbolt 3 Single-Slot Card Reader is bus-powered, operating off its Thunderbolt connection, so there's no need to plug in a power supply or power cable.


Supports All Types of SxS Media

The SxS PRO X Card Reader supports all generations of SxS media, including SxS PRO X, SxS PRO+ E, SxS PRO+ D, SxS PRO+, SxS PRO, SxS-1, and SxS cards. Additionally, this reader supports XQD cards with the Sony ExpressCard Adapter for XQD Memory Card (QDA-EX1) or SD cards with Sonnet's SDHC Adapter for SxS Slot (SD-SXS-E34) or Sony's MEAD-SD02.


Fast Ingestion Performance

Ingest footage from any SxS card at maximum supported speeds of up to 1250 MB/s with SxS PRO X and up to 440 MB/s for SxS PRO+ media.


The Single-slot SxS Card Reader for Digital Imaging Technicians (DITs)

Equipment size and design features matter. Sonnet's SxS PRO X Thunderbolt 3 Single-Slot Card Reader measures just 2.8" x 4.1" x 0.8", which is about the size of a deck of playing cards, making it suitable for use in any workspace and workflow. Featuring a rugged aluminum enclosure, the Sonnet reader packs easily into a computer bag or backpack. Its single-port Thunderbolt interface and bus-powered operation make it good for use at the end of a daisy chain, such as multiple Sonnet SF3 Series dual-slot pro card readers.


Includes Thunderbolt 3 Cable and ThunderLok3

Sonnet includes a 1.6' 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 cable that supports Thunderbolt 3's full bandwidth. Sonnet also provides a ThunderLok 3 Thunderbolt connector retainer clip that helps prevent accidental cable disconnections - just slide it over one end of the cable, and then plug in the connector and secure it to the reader by turning a thumbscrew. Because of its unique design, ThunderLok remains on the cable so it won't get lost when not in use.

Powered using the Thunderbolt bus.
