IOGEAR - 12-in-1, 56-in-1
IOGEAR has released two new media-card readers in its new Universal Memory Bank line: the 12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader and the 56-in-1 Memory Card Reader. Both new readers feature adapters for most popular memory cards, allowing users to access data from cell phones, cameras and other multimedia devices via one USB reader, eliminating the need for multiple proprietary USB cables. In addition, both devices allow users to read from and write to multiple cards, with hot-swap ability. The readers are backward-compatible with USB 1.1 and require Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher or Windows 2000, XP or Vista. They are available now for $12 (12-in-1) and $20 (56-in-1).
The 12-in-1 reader works with SD, Micro SD, Mini SD, MMC, Memory Stick and MS Duo card formats and is 2.5 inches long and less than an inch deep for high portability. The 56-in-1 reader works with CompactFlash/Micro Drive, SD/SDHC/Mini SD/MMC, Olympus DC Card, T-Flash/Micro SD/ Micro SDHC, Memory Stick/MS Duo, Memory Stick Micro and others.
