Quickly Downloads Photos and Videos from a CFast 2.0 Card to Your Laptop’s USB Port
This card reader and adapter provides a fast and simple way to download photos and videos from a CFast memory card to a computer. Ideal for photographers and videographers, this unit connects to your computer, laptop, netbook, tablet or hub’s USB port via its built-in cable. Just insert your CFast 1.0 or 2.0 memory card into the unit’s slot to transfer high-resolution image and video files in a hurry. A blue LED indicates when the CFast card is ready for reading or writing.
Also Connects a 2.5 in. SATA Drive to Your Computer, Laptop, Netbook, Tablet or Hub
This unit is also recommended for backing up important data, retrieving old data and storing new data without the time, trouble and expense of installing a SATA drive inside your computer. Just connect a 2.5-inch SATA III, II or I hard disc drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) up to 2 TB to the adapter, which allows you to download data to your computer or use the SATA drive as extra storage space. A red LED indicates when the SATA drive is ready for reading or writing. The SATA drive and CFast memory card can both be used at the same time.
Transfers Data at Fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 Speeds
The adapter supports USB 3.1 Gen 1 data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. It’s backward compatible with previous USB generations, allowing you to use it with older equipment. It also reads data up to 70 percent faster and writes up to 40 percent faster when connected to a UASP-enabled host controller.
It’s Plug-and-Play, So You Can Begin Transferring Important Files Right Away
No software, drivers or external power is needed. The adapter works with all major operating systems, including Windows, Mac and Linux. The portable unit is about the size of a credit card, so you can easily take it with you in a backpack, briefcase, laptop bag or even your pocket.
