Default Are there any Mutli SDXC/SDHC USB 3.0 Card readers?

I'm at a loss on how to search for these...

I'm looking for a USB 3.0 Card reader with multiple SD/SDHC/SDXC slots.
I want to be able to access 2 to 4 different SD/SDHC/SDXC cards simultaneously.

When I try using various keywords such as multiple slots, simultaneous, etc.
I get back products that are just X-in-1 readers.

Closest I've found is a USB 2.0 readers with 4 SD/SDHC slots, which I've tried out and deemed too slow.
(Read/write speeds for accessing 2 cards simultaneously are too slow that I eventually had to just copy the needed files over to the SSD/HDD on my comp)

Can anyone point me in the right direction

Just start searching through USB3 card readers, there aren't that many on the market.

Newegg.ca - Computer Hardware, Computer Accessories, Card Readers, USB 3.0

Already see one that advertises simultaneous multi card read/write.

Hmmm.

Even the ones that supposedly support simultaneous read/write with multiple cards in place, do not have more than 1 SD/SDHC/SDXC slot

I'm using this Kingston one. Makes a massive difference when unloading a large SD card from a camera.

Does it simultaneously read multiple SD/SDHC/SDXC cards?

If not, it isn't exactly what I'm looking for

The kingston one will do an SD and a micro SD simultaniously, but that's the closest I've ever seen in 3.0

Buy 4 of them?
