Memory and memory accessory company Delkin Devices has announced a new multi-format card reader that will be compatible with the CFast standard. DDreader-48 uses a USB 3.0 interface and can facilitate data rates of up to 500MB/s with CFast 2.0, SD UHS-ll and microSD UHS-l memory cards. While the SD and microSD formats can’t yet test the reader’s transfer speeds on their own the extra capacity in the pipeline allows the reader to read or write from or to each of three slots simultaneously to save users time. A fourth port allows users to connect a Flash Drive via USB.

Delkin Devices USB 3.0 CFast 2.0 Multi-Slot Memory Card Reader is compatible with Windows and Mac devices and will be available at the end of March for £39.99 (approx. $40) with a limited 5-year warranty. For more information see the Delkin Devices website.

Unparalleled Speed
Incorporating a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, the reader offers speeds suitable for professional photographers and videographers. Offload large files, such as high-res RAW images, 4K, 2K & 3D videos, quickly and efficiently at speeds up to 500MB/s (10x faster than USB 2.0)! The improved user workflow reduces transfer time dramatically and allows you to view and work on your files sooner. The reader also allows for simultaneous data transfer, giving you the ability to download all your files from multiple cards to your computer at the same time.

The CFast slot incorporates SATA III support, guaranteeing the fastest transfers to and from your CFast card. The SD slot is designed with a second row of connectors to utilize the super high-speed performance of UHS-II cards, while also allowing for backwards compatibility with non-UHS-II cards.

Compact & Travel-Friendly
At only 4 in. wide and weighing less than ¼ lb., the reader provides convenient, hassle-free portability. Bring it with you wherever you go; safely store it in backpacks, carrying bags, briefcases, and much more! Whether you are at home or travelling, the reader’s compact size allows you to access your precious files anywhere, anytime, while taking up minimal space.

Plug & Play
Access your files in seconds! No drivers or external power is required; simply plug the reader into any USB port on your computer and start viewing your photos and videos instantly. The reader is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports, but will transfer data at slower rates.
