Support for Fast Memory Cards with New LINDY USB 3.0 Multi-Card Reader
Stockton-on-Tees, UK (7th October 2011) – LINDY Electronics announced today a USB 3.0 Multi-Card Reader that provides SuperSpeed access to a range of memory cards. Transferring images, downloading video couldn’t be easier, simply connect the reader to a computer’s USB 3.0 port and move files at rates of up to 5Gbps.
A stylish white and grey design with five different slots, the LINDY USB 3.0 Multi-Card Reader can access the most popular, latest memory cards on the market, including fast memory cards such as SDXC and CF UDMA at the highest capacities. Older favourites such as Compact Flash, SD and Mini SD are also supported.
“With even compact cameras now having up to twelve megapixel resolution, file sizes are increasing constantly and so is the time taken to transfer them to a computer,” says Andrew Ingram, Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “Our latest card reader lets users take advantage of the high speed transfer rates that USB 3.0 offers, as well as proving support for the latest memory cards.”
Backward compatible with USB 2.0/1.1 the card reader includes a 1m USB 3.0 cable.
