Lexar Rebates are back!!!

Lexar has joined the rebate part and has some great deals here on B&H’s website, so now is a good time to stock up on fast compact flash and SDHC memory!

Stop waiting on slow compact flash readers

While you are shopping for Lexar products be sure to check out my favorite CF card reader for my Mac:


Lexar Professional UDMA FireWire 800 CompactFlash Card Reader

Demaris at Lexar sent me a Lexar Professional UDMA FireWire 800 CompactFlash Card Reader for review on my MacBook Pro a few months ago and it’s been awesome. This thing screams on the FireWire 800 port, so I’m bummed when I go back to my PC and use the glacially slow Sandisk ImageMate 12-in-1 USB reader! If you use a Mac and UDMA CF cards, you’ve gotta get one of these readers – its fast and not super expensive.

If you are a PC user and have a ExpressCard slot, all is not lost. In fact, for less money and better performance you’ve gotta check this bad boy out:


Lexar Professional ExpressCard CompactFlash Reader

When I was at the Olympics in Vancouver this past February the guys at Lexar let me play with the then un-released Professional ExpressCard CompactFlash Reader. At that point in time I was easily seeing 80+ MB/sec transfer rates which is faster than I can move files to one part of my hard drive to another! Well since then they’ve finally released it and this UDMA 6 device can transfer at speeds up to 133mb/sec!!!! At $34.95* as of the time of this writing, this thing has to be the best bargain on the planet!

* = All prices are as of 10/22/2010 and are subject to change without notice.
