Accepts five formats, works with Win/Mac
Photography accessory maker Phottix is offering a new, USB 3.0 (USB2 compatible) Turbo USB card reader that accepts a wide variety of cards in five main formats: Compact Flash (CF), xD, Memory Stick (MS), MultiMedia Cards (MMC) and Secure Digital (SD), as well as MicroSD. The plug-and-play device is compatible with Windows 2000 or later and Mac OS X. All five card slots can be used at the same time, according to the company.
One of the biggest flaws of Macs is that they don’t include built-in media card readers. This makes sense, given the bewildering array of different media cards available and the fact that media card readers offer more slots than anyone could possibly want or use, hence wasting space and marring the uncluttered appearance of the computer. Another problem with any computer is the limited number of available USB ports. If this problem of media card readers and USB ports sounds familiar to you, then consider Griffin Technology’s Simplifi.
