I'm doing much the same, I use the XQD for backup, and let the CF be primary and use a USB3 card reader for that. If I needed to read the XQD (e.g. on failure of the CF) I would do it through the camera, but in the mean time it wasn't worth the $50 or so those XQD readers require.

I'm starting to wonder if it's not a "beta" that died even quicker. I rather hope not, they are very fast and have potential, but it's not about good vs. better, it's about what people buy. And if they won't put them in cameras other than the D4....
