Verbatim USB 3.0/USB 2.0 Universal Card Readers and USB 2.0 Pocket Card Reader
Verbatim is no stranger when it comes to storage devices and media, and this time around, they have rolled out a couple of devices which will read your stored data – in the form of the USB 3.0/USB 2.0 Universal Card Readers and USB 2.0 Pocket Card Reader. Both of them will play nice with Windows and Mac platforms, and are 100% compatible with all USB ports. Featuring a sleek, modern design in either model, the USB 3.0 device comes in an eye-catching, silver finish while the USB 2.0 model will definitely attract fingerprints with its classic piano black finish.
Supported memory cards by both the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 Universal Card Readers include CompactFlash Type I & Type II (CF), Secure Digital (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC), miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo, Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, Memory Stick Micro (M2), MultiMedia Card (MMC) and xD-Picture Card (xD). Depending on your needs, I would say go for the future-proof USB 3.0 model – after all, it retails for $10 more compared to the $14.99 USB 2.0 Universal Card Reader.
Those who tend to do a whole lot of traveling can always fall back on the $9.99 USB 2.0 Pocket Card Reader, and as the name implies, it fits into most pockets without missing a beat, and will read just about any memory card format while you’re on the go.
