Lexar Announces Two Fast Card Readers, Plus a Fast Card

Lexar Stackable and Dual Slot Card Readers

After you’ve shot gigabytes of photos with your spanking brand new DSLR, you don’t download the pictures straight from the camera, Sonny; that will take you forever and a half. You use a fast card reader like the pros do.

Yeah, fast card readers like these two from Lexar. They’ve just announced a Firewire 800 version of the Stackable Card Reader and a new Dual-Slot USB 2.0 reader for UDMA-enabled CompactFlash and SDHC flash cards.

The $80 Stackable Card Reader is an upgrade to Lexar’s already-existing stackable line that allows for simultaneous download of data from multiple flash memory cards. The $50 Dual Slot Reader is fully compatible with SD, SDHC, CF and UDMA-enabled 300x CF memory cards.

To go with the fast card readers, you need a fast card too. Lexar also introduced today their Professional UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) memory cards, in capacities of 2GB, 4GB and 8GB. The 300x cards – with up to 45MB per second write speed – are 125% faster than the previous generation of 133x cards.
