The Card and Reader, A Closer Look
The latest in NAND Flash Technology




The Kingston 100X CF Ultimate 2GB card has a sustained write speed rated at "100x", 13MB/s read, 13MB/s write, which is two times as fast as Kingston's 50X card that offers 7.5MB/s performance.  Beyond that, it's square and thin. What else do you need to know?  Exactly...

The 15-in-1 Flash Reader on the other hand is a tiny little device and it's amazing that so many different memory formats can be read in such a small form factor.  The socket connector pins alone take up most of the real estate inside the unit itself.  The 15-in-1's apperance is minimalistic, sleek and stylish, just the way we like it.

Let's look at some performance numbers next.
