Lexar Announces New Products
This morning I got wind of Lexar’s latest offerings. Rob Galbraith has an article about the details HERE but here’s the basics on the new products.
The Professional 300x CompactFlash Line - While the jump in speed won’t be something your camera can take advantage of it will be dramatically noticeable as you upload from card to hard-drive. The new UDMA technology looks exciting.
The Professional UDMA Firewire 800 Reader - An upgrade to their already great Professional Firewire CF Cardreader – now available with Firewire 800.
The Professional Dual-Slot USB 2.0 Reader – A new reader that combines both CF and SD formats – this one’s USB2.0 – I’m hoping they ramp that up to FW400 or 800 but have no reason to hope for that but raw optimism.
See the Rob Galbraith site for more information. I’d duplicate it here but to be honest I’m not as capable of discussing benchmarking and mb/s and the rest of the techy mumbo-jumbo. I’m a bottom-line guy and when I read the magic words “new”, “shiny”, and “way faster” I’m in, no questions asked.
I’m very proud of my relationship with Lexar, and as one of their ProPhotographers I might be a little biased, but I think that bias comes from the exceptional products I’ve used and the great service I’ve encountered. Their website is an excellent resource, take a moment to dig around there if you haven’t already.
