Lexar tackles ultra-fast CF, SDHC cards with readers

Lexar Ultra-Fast Readers

Lexar kicked off its releases in advance of PMA 2007 today by delivering a pair updates to its card readers for pro photographers. Completely new is the Professional UDMA FireWire 800 Reader (pictured), the company's first reader to support Ultra Direct Memory Access CompactFlash cards. The new 300X CF standard reduces the memory latency to create an exceptional boost in performance: Lexar claims a minimum 45MB per second write speed and transfer times cut in half compared to the previous 133X ceiling. The reader is stackable for multiple simultaneous transfers and depends on a faster FireWire 800 port for its connections. It should be available in April for $80.

A dual-slot reader and photos are available after the break.

In exchange for sheer speed, Lexar's new Professional Dual-Slot USB Reader (right) gains universality. Plugging into a USB 2.0 port, the pop-up adapter accepts CF cards (including UDMA models) in one slot as well as SD or SDHC cards in another. Both cards can be accessed at the same time, the firm adds. It should ship in June for $50.
