Want a faster memory card reader?

Memory card readers are a dime a dozen today and 99% of them are all the same. The things are almost exclusively USB readers and they tend to read the same formats. Users that read large CF or SDHC cards have probably wished the memory card readers were faster before.




Addonics has unveiled a pair of new memory card readers called the pocket eSATA/USB DigiDrive and the internal SATA/USB DigiDrive. The pocket version of the reader reads 15 memory card formats and connects via either USB or eSATA ports.


The internal version connects via SATA and slips into a 3.5-inch drive bay. Both of the readers can be had in versions that can read and write to the memory cards. Both of the memory card readers are also firmware updatable for support of new formats. The read only version of both readers are $59.99.
