Excerpt: Whereas LaCie offers a single card reader, which handles all the various flash-media–card formats, SanDisk supports the same formats with seven different readers. Four of them read only one format each (CompactFlash, MultiMediaCard, SecureDigital, and SmartMedia), and three cover multiple formats (one handles CF and SmartMedia; another, CF and Memory Stick; a third, CF, MMC, and SD). But not one supports all.
Conclusion: All in all SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 3.0 is a good memory card reader for photographers and for those frequently transferring heavy files with its 500 MB/s interface transfer speed and special vertical layout.
Excerpt: SanDisk is synonymous with memory card manufacture but it also produces stylish, feature-packed card readers, and the ImageMate All-in-One is a perfect example. It supports all popular card formats and, according to SanDisk, is one of the fastest USB 2.0 readers on the market, with a reported transfer speed of up to 34MB/s. SanDisk also produces a USB 3.0 card reader that's very similar but with the added benefit of faster data transfer times.
Excerpt: The SanDisk ImageMate is a memory card reader / writer that supports 12 different memory card formats and which connects to your computer via a high speed USB 2 port. The ImageMate is backwards compatible with all USB 1.1 ports and no adapters are required for any of the supported memory cards. The SanDisk ImageMate is supplied in both a dockable format (pictured) and stand-alone.
Summary: Qua snelheid ontlopen de Kingston MobileLite G2 en de ImageMate van Sandisk elkaar niet. Qua design gaat het enkel om smaak, maar qua ondersteuning voor verschillende geheugenformaten is de ImageMate de betere van de twee.
Pros: + Ondersteuning voor veel geheugenformaten, + Slank ontwerp, + Lange USB kabel
Cons: - Valt makkelijk om, - Exterieur gevoelig voor vette vingers
