SanDisk unleashes faster, newer memory card readers

 1 1 2 3 4I call poppycock, good sir.

SanDisk is claiming that their ImageMate memory card readers have wicked fast transfer speeds.

The All-In-One memory card reader can reach speeds of up to 34 megabytes per second (MB/s)1 when using a SanDisk Extreme® IV 45MB/s CompactFlash® card, and the Multi-Card reader is capable of up to 30MB/s2 read and 27 MB/s write data transfer rates when using a SanDisk Extreme® III 30MB/s Edition SDHC™ card.

I’m sure it’s quick, but I’m not so pedantic that I would be testing transfer speeds. It looks pretty killer with the black and silver scheme (for a rendering) and I’m interested in the one touch transfer feature that launches and dumps images to apps like Photoshop or Flickr.

The All-In-One retails for $30 and it supports SD, SDHC, miniSDHC, MMC, MS, MSPD, xD and CF. The Multi-Card reader plays nice with xD, MS, SD, SDHC and MMC and goes for $20.
