Delkin Reads Memory Cards Through ExpressCard Adapters

Delkin Reads Memory Cards Through ExpressCard Adapters


Usually when you hear of multi-card readers, they come with some sort of USB and maybe even a FireWire connection. Not today. Delkin Devices — no relation to Belkin — is going about things in a slightly different way, revealing a part of adapters that fit in the ExpressCard slot on your Mac or PC, reading all sorts of flash memory cards.

The eFilm ExpressCard 34 is a 6-in-1 card reader, handling Secure Digital, SDHC, MMC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, and xD memory cards. You’d be able to do the miniSD, microSD, M2, and PRO Duo dance too if you bring along the appropriate adapters. The Delkin eFilm ExpressCard 34 sells for $59.99.

Alternatively, you can opt for the more compact eFilm ExpressCard 54. It’s got the bigger number, but it’s not as versatile as its 34 cousin. This adapter can only read CompactFlash, but it is also the first UDMA (Ultra ATA)-compliant adapter. Transfer speeds are said to be over 17MB per second. No pricing information here though.
