Delkin has announced the release of a new USB 3.0 Universal Memory Card Reader, and just like its name describes, it is a USB 3.0 device that makes it stand out from other memory card readers out there. According to Delkin, the USB 3.0 Universal Memory Card Reader is capable of transferring data at speeds of up to 5Gb/s with actual speeds approximated around 3.2 Gb/s, or 400 MB/s; over twelve times faster than the 33MB/s actual transfer speeds obtained with USB 2.0 devices. This means that transferring all those RAW photographs and HD video footage from your camera isn’t going to take hours anymore. It has 5 memory card slots and is capable of reading most formats available on the market, including UMDA enabled CompactFlash cards, SDXC enabled Secure Digital cards and brand specific memory cards such as Memory Stick and xD. The USB 3.0 Universal Memory Card Reader should be in stores this week, worldwide with a retail price of $39.99.
