IOGEAR Universal Memory Bank
IOGEAR is well known for their line of peripherals, and today we have yet another couple of offerings from the company that makes it a snap for you to transfer images and files between multimedia devices, gadgets and computers thanks to the IOGEAR Universal Memory Bank. These devices boasts a wide range of functionality, among them a 12-in-1 memory card reader/writer and a 56-in-1 memory card reader/writer that offers bi-directional data transfers at unprecedented speeds. Hey, don’t quote me on the last bit as those are IOGEAR marketing claims, and I suspect you’re limited to a theoretical cap of 480Mbps as with all other USB 2.0 devices.
The 12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader/Writer (GFR209 $11.95 MSRP) is compatible with the most in-demand memory card types, such as SD, Micro SD, Mini SD, MMC, Memory Stick and MS Duo, making it suitable for most mobile devices. At only 2.5 inches long and less than one inch deep, the 12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader can be stashed and carried for easy use anywhere. It also has a built-in cable to avoid blocking other USB ports when in use.
Ideal for avid digital photographers, the 56-in-1 Memory Card Reader/Writer (GFR281 $19.95), works with all popular memory cards, making it the go-to gadget for transferring important information from cell phones, digital cameras, camcorders, GPS, MP3 and PDAs. This innovative product needs no additional adapters to work with all memory card formats, enabling individuals who use many digital devices to keep everything they need in one spot. For example, a journalist or family that uses multiple digital cameras can now use one product to download photos to their computer, rather than several cables.
Both devices are immediately available, and with such a low price point attached, they’d make great office gifts for a colleague.
