Lexar Media today announced that it has enhanced its line of memory card readers from the new Professional CompactFlash Reader and high-speed multi-card readers to the single slot unit, ideal for the mobile photographer. Lexar's transfers images to notebook computers, while providing high-speed data transfer rates similar to FireWire and USB 2.0 readers. Lexar's 32-Bit Card Bus Reader supports all CompactFlash Type I and Type II cards and works with both Mac and PC laptops.
Lexar's Multi-Card Reader is a high-speed device that transfers images and information between flash memory cards and destination computers. The Multi-Card Reader is compatible with CompactFlash Type I and Type II, Smart Media, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, MultiMediaCard (MMC), Secure Digital (SD), Mini Secure Digital (miniSD), xD-Picture Card, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Duo PRO, Reduced-Size MMC and Micro Drives.
Lexar's Professional CompactFlash Reader is designed in a rugged black housing which is capable of withstanding the active and often demanding environment of a professional photography studio, and features a prominently placed LED indicator to signify when the data transfer session is complete. The LED also functions as a CompactFlash eject button and is part of the "one-hand" design that allows cards to be ejected quickly and easily.
