Transcend today introduced its new USB 3.0 multi card reader, the RDF8. The new reader utilizes a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface and supports the latest ultra high speed card formats, including SDHC UHS-1, SDXC UHS-1, UDMA6/UDMA7 CF and MSXC cards, allowing avid photographers and video enthusiasts to effortlessly copy high-resolution uncompressed images or 1080p Full HD video files from their memory cards to their computer.
The RDF8 USB 3.0 card reader is equipped with a next-generation SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection interface that delivers transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 card readers. Thanks to the increased bandwidth of USB 3.0, data can be carried to the computer as fast as the user’s memory card permits. When paired with an Ultra High Speed (UHS-1) SD card, for example, files as large as one gigabyte can be transferred in less than twelve seconds.
Designed to unleash the full potential of next generation memory cards, the RDF8 USB 3.0 card reader boasts a total of four slots: a CompactFlash (CF) slot compatible with UDMA CF cards, an SDHC/SDXC slot that supports the new UHS-1 standard, a smaller slot for M2/microSD cards, and a slot for MS PRO/MSXC/MS DUO cards. The RDF8 is also backwards compatible with the USB 2.0 interface and accepts older versions of CF, SD, and SDHC cards, making the card reader quite practical for today's digital needs.
The prospect of losing precious, once-in-a-lifetime shots to camera or memory card malfunction is a longstanding fear that looms in the minds of professional and amateur photographers alike. For extra peace of mind, the RDF8, like all other Transcend card readers, comes with a free download of Transcend’s powerful and user-friendly RecoveRx software. Compatible with both Mac and Windows, this amazing data recovery tool can effectively recover lost, deleted or damaged photos and other digital files from multiple types of memory cards.
The RDF8 USB 3.0 multi card reader is backed by Transcend’s two-year limited warranty, and is now available for a suggested retail price of US$24.
