SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 2.0 Card Reader review

SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 2.0 Card Reader review

What’s the fastest card reader out there? That’s probably one of the most frequent questions, as flash storage becomes increasingly popular in everything from digital cameras to cellphones and PMPs. Of course, the answer boils down to numerous parameters such as bus medium, interface and storage.

Though it’s backward compatible with its lower-bandwidth sibling Firewire 400/IEEE 1394A, itself commonly found in most PCs these days, that connection will inevitably reduce the transfer rate.

This means that the data is written and altered where it would be most efficiently placed based on user habits, rather than having the data connected to a particular physical spot. This would improve the performance of SSDs by a lot and even make them more reliable.
