New SD Card Reader Offers Simultaneous Read and Write Functions

StarTech.com releases two new SD™ card readers for quick file backups.

Lockbourne, OH - November 1, 2016 - StarTech.com has announced the release of two new Dual Slot SD Card Readers which enable users to read and write to any two SD cards simultaneously. The USB 3.0 version (2SD4FCRU3) and the USB-C version (2SD4FCRU3C) both feature an integrated cable, so no additional cables or adapters are required. The dual slots in the SD card reader make it easy for users to immediately back up their photos and videos to access, browse, and view content directly from their mobile device or PC.

The new SD card readers will benefit photographers and videographers who import photos and videos from their digital camera, video camera, or GoPro® camera to their smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop PC. By accessing two SD cards at once, users can overcome the challenges of dealing with multiple memory cards and save time and effort by transferring content from multiple cards instead of importing content from each card individually.

Additional benefits of the Dual Slot Card Readers - USB 3.0 version (2SD4FCRU3) & USB-C version (2SD4FCRU3C):

  • Provide read and write access for two SD, SDHC™ or SDXC™ memory cards simultaneously
  • Supports SD 4.0 and UHS-II (Ultra High Speed) and is backwards compatible with older SD card versions
  • Plug-and-play - no additional software or drivers required
  • Backward compatible with USB 2.0/1.1
“These dual-slot SD card readers provide creative professionals with ultra-fast access to SD cards and the ability to quickly import photos and videos from their devices,” said Scott Burton, Product Manager, StarTech.com. “With their small, portable form factors and integrated cables, these products are extremely compact, making them versatile enough to use in the studio or out in the field.”

With SD 4.0 and UHS-II support, these products offer uncompromising read and write speeds, increasing the data transfer rate to 312MB/s for high-speed file transfers. By supporting the faster speeds of UHS-II, the card reader saves time when offloading videos and high volumes of photos to your computer, and increases efficiency during editing and post-production.

The SD Card Readers are available now at CDW, Amazon.com, Newegg.com, PC Connection, and Insight and will be distributed by Ingram Micro, SYNNEX, Tech Data, D&H and ASI.
