SIIG ExpressCard 34 11-in-1 Media Card Reader
Author: Matt Krei (FragTek)
Hardware Acquired: Newegg
Overall this card and new technology is very impressive and gets two thumbs up. With the smaller form factor, faster bus speed, and rapidly growing support I think we definately have a winner on our hands. My biggest dissapointment is the lack of CompactFlash support but this is more due to the size restriction of the 34mm design than anything else. The driverless universal support for this ExpressCard technology is also a great benefit as i can seemly use it between both Mac OS X and Windows XP. This specific card can be purchased from Newegg for a mere $36.99 which is a phenominal price for a product based on a new technology.
+ Universal driverless support for multiple operating systems
+ Doesn't create multiple drive icons when no media cards are inserted
+ Fast transfer speeds
+ Small form factor
- Unlocks itself sometimes if not careful when removing SD cards
- No support for CompactFlash
