CompactFlash, IBM Microdrive, SmartMedia, MultiMediaCard, Secure Digital, Memory Stick - the many conveniences of Flash memory have led to it's greatest inconvenience - lack of a single form factor or standard specification. A person or company may easily find itself owning a variety of mobile digital devices that use different forms of Flash memory media—a digital camera that needs CompactFlash, an MP3 player that needs MultiMediaCard, a mobile phone that expands memory via Secure Digital, and/or hundreds of other possible combinations. Transferring data between devices and computers therefore becomes quite a problem. The ultimate solution is the 6-in-1 Card Reader/Writer from Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend). This simple, USB port powered device eliminates the complications associated with data transfer among Flash products. The Transcend 6-in-1 Card Reader/Writer makes it incredibly easy to transfer data from CompactFlash Cards, IBM Microdrives, SmartMedia Cards, MultiMediaCards, Secure Digital Memory Cards, or Memory Stick Media to and from practically any computing device with a USB port. Most computer Operating Systems even come with all the files needed to use the 6-in-1 Card Reader/Writer without the need for special drivers. Once it’s plugged in, each memory slot acts like a removable media drive to allow users to drag-and-drop files between media and the computing system. Nothing could be simpler.

Additional advantages of the Transcend 6-in-1 Card Reader/Writer include its small size (about the size of a PDA), light weight (105gm or 3.4oz), stylish design, hot-swap capability, easy Plug and Play installation, high data transfer rate of 1.5MB (12M bit) per second, and LEDs that indicate slot availability and data traffic. Transcend is so confident in the quality of the 6-in-1 Card Reader/Writer, that it is backed by a 5-year warranty. The Transcend 6-in-1 Card Reader/Writer truly fulfills all the Flash memory data transfer needs of every user.

The price was given with around € 59,00 and the sales will starts end of July!
