Tired of all the slow data transfer speeds when you’re using an external memory card reader to grab stuff off your SD cards? Phottix has an answer to that in the form of its new USB memory card reader. While most external memory card readers usually use USB 2.0 to transfer data from the cards to your computer (and vice versa), its new memory card reader uses USB 3.0 instead, which functions about 10x faster – of course the catch is you’ll need a USB 3.0 port on your computer to take advantage of it.
The Phottix Turbo USB 3.0 Ultra Speed Card Reader has a read/write speed of up to 4800 Mbps and can read Compact Flash (CF), Secure Digital (SD), Micro SD, Memory Stick (MS) and xD type cards. All five card slots can be used at the same time and a USB 3.0 cable is provided. It’s on sale now for $34.00.
