Griffin Announces 5-in-1 Card Reader for ExpressCard Slot
December 15, 2006
Griffin Technology Inc., creator of innovative accessories for Mac, PC and iPod, today announced a versatile multimedia card reader for notebooks.
Cards for your digital still camera… cards for your digital camcorder… flash memory cards for file portability…. With the plethora of memory card formats in use today, you need a card reader that’s not only fast and portable, but versatile, as well.
Griffin’s new ExpressCard/34 5-in-1 card reader handles the whole spectrum of modern memory card formats, directly supporting:
– Memory Stick and Memory Stick PROTM
– SDTM Memory Card
– xD-Picture CardTM
…and with your card adapter, the 5-in-1 also supports:
– Memory Stick DuoTM
– Memory Stick MicroTM
Griffin’s 5-in-1 works with the ExpressCard/34 or /54 slot found in Apple’s MacBook Pro and many recent Windows laptops. It’s not only versatile, but also the fastest way to transfer data from your memory cards, comparable to or better than USB 2.0 High-Speed (up to 480 Mbps). Contrast this with the 12 Mbps you get from USB 1.0 card readers, and even slower rates when transferring directly from the camera.
Griffin’s 5-in-1 works with both Mac OS and Windows XP right out of the box. It’s truly plug & play, no drivers or installation software required. No batteries required, either; it gets its juice directly from your computer’s ExpressCard slot. Lightweight, compact, and durable, ExpressCard 5-in-1 is easy to travel with, and a great companion for any MacBook Pro.
Griffin ExpressCard 5-in-1 Card Reader/Writer, priced at only $29.99 USD, is available now at www.griffintechnology.com, and wherever quality computer accessories are sold.
