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.
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.
