Magnetic Elecom Card Reader sticks to metal surfaces

Posted in Card Readers by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2009

Magnetic Elecom Card Reader sticks to metal surfacesSure a card reader on your desk is easy enough to use, but the problem is that we have so many USB toys and other things on our desks that space is getting scarce. That’s why this new Elecom card reader is pretty handy.

It’s magnetic, so it will stick to metal surfaces, keeping it out of the way, but still readily available for your needs. Plus, it looks nice and retro which we love. It will only cost you $27.

Rubiks Cube card reader

Posted in Card Readers by Conner Flynn on April 16th, 2009

Rubiks Cube card readerOur fascination with the Rubik’s Cube seems never ending. It still entertains and frustrates us. The Rubiks cube probably inspired this awesome USB 270° x 270° Rubik Card Reader. Call it a hunch.

It sports the cube form factor of a Rubik’s Cube, but without the familiar color scheme. The idea is that you can twist all three levels so that you always have room to plug in all your memory cards. It also features a blue LED as a status indicator.

Thanko pen reads 4 SD cards simultaneously

Posted in Card Readers by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2009

Thanko pen reads 4 SD cards simultaneouslyThanko has released a new four-slot USB SD card reader in the form of a pen. I’m not sure what situation would arise where you would need to read four different SD cards at the same time, but if it happens you are covered.

The SD4PEN can read four SD or SDHC cards (up to 16GB) as well as let you write all of the usual mundane things you write throughout the course of your day. Nothing on pricing yet or a release date, but we’re sure it will be soon. I mean you need another pen and you’ve got SD cards. You need this.

Delkin ImageRouter connects many, many CF cards

Posted in Card Readers by Darrin Olson on February 1st, 2008

Delkin ImageRouter connects multiple CompactFlash cards at once for downloadDelkin has a new CompactFlash card reader they are showing off this week called the ImageRouter. This device solves the problem of photographers having to download multiple CF cards to a computer after a shoot. The ImageRouter doesn’t really make the actual transfer happen any faster but what it does do is allow the multiple cards to do their transfer simultaneously so you don’t have to watch it and swap them out when each are done.

As if loading 4 of the cards at a time is not enough Delkin says that if you buy more than one you can daisy-chain them together with two ImageRouters letting you download 8 CF cards at the same time. Delkin doesn’t elaborate on their site on just how many can be connected at a time but does say that you can connect “two or more” and also mentions that the ImageRouter will help whether you have “four or fourteen CompactFlash cards”. We’re guessing that after a few connected together things might get pretty slow and according to SlashGear three is the limit.

The card readers connect through a USB 2.0 connection and reach transfer speeds of 19MB/sec reads. Two ImageRouters connected slows it slightly with a 17MB/second read and 15MB/sec write speeds. Delkin is getting these card readers ready for purchase by April retailing at $149. The BackupandBurn software can be purchased with it in a bundle for $249, which helps with automatically routing and naming files during the transfer.

62-in-1 card reader mounts in 3.5″ internal bay

Posted in Card Readers,FireWire,USB by Darrin Olson on January 14th, 2008

62 in 1 card reader and hub for SATA, USB and FirewireTake a look at this card reader from USBFever that says it will handel up to 62 different types of memory cards and connections. I’m not sure what those 62 types are and the product page doesn’t even list them but you can feel pretty confident that it will take just about whatever you got. We do see support for CF, SD/MMC, MemoryStick and xD at the least.

Aside from being just a card reader, the gadget also works as a hub for a single connection for each of USB, Fireware, SATA, e-SATA, headphones and a microphone. All of this is conveniently built into a box that fits in your internal 3.5″ drive bay on your computer so you don’t have to have yet another device taking up space on your desk and another USB port.

Elecom card reader and storage case combo

Posted in Card Readers by Reuben Drake on September 28th, 2007

Elecom 6 in 1 memory card reader and storage caseIt’s tough to make a USB Flash memory card reader stand out from the crowd. The functionality is pretty straight forward and really the only variable comes down to how many and which card types it will support. With this in mind, Elecom has recently done a pretty good job here with their MR-C12 USB 2.0 card reader.

The card reader supports SDHC, SD, MMC, xD and Memory Stick MagicGate/PRO/Duo which is nothing fantastic, but the lid on this one opens up to store a number of those cards inside, giving you a single tidy package that both stores and connects your external Flash-based media.
