    I wonder if they are really faster then the RED reader. I thought the limit would be the read speed of the RED MAGs

    They are faster than the OG USB3 readers but not appreciably faster than the current USB-C ones from Red.

    However what they do allow is to download multiple cards at once at full speed, daisy chain of TB3 devices, etc.

    I can download 4 cards at once, full speed, by daisy chaining 2 sonnet readers.

    They were never advertised as being faster than the red mini-mag reader with USB-C for a single mag. They are still limited by the speed of the mag but they can read two at once and TB3 has more than enough bandwidth to handle those full read speeds from multiple mags. You are only going to save time if you are actually ingesting from multiple mags at once.

    ...and have the disk write bandwidth to accept such a data stream.

    Yep definitely. I am curious what you are ingesting to on your setup with dual Sonnet readers. Are you ingesting on the go or is this more for your at studio setup?

    Studio setup. I do a lot of multi cam in studio. Use the Red USB-C ones on the go.
