SanDisk is a company I'm sure everyone has heard of, they are a flash media / accessories giant in the industry. I was in the market for a USB Compact Flash reader and ran across a special on the SanDisk ImageMate 6 in 1 Card Reader / Writer. The ImageMate 6 in 1, as the name implies supports 6 different types of media (listed below) and is USB 2.0 compatible for faster transfer speed.

  • CompactFlash Type I
  • CompactFlash Type II
  • SmartMedia
  • Memory Stick
  • MultiMediaCard
  • SD Card

Since I use both a laptop and desktop computer, keeping track of my USB cable that connects to my digital camera was starting to become a major pain, not to mention every time I hooked it up to my desktop I had to dig behind the case under my desk to hook it up. I finally decided to break down and find an alternative that was easy to hook up to both machines. Like I said before I happened to find a special on this ImageMate 6 in 1 so I decided to give it a shot. 99% of the time I use it only for my Compact Flash cards, but on rare occasions I do use it for a SmartMedia card too. One feature that appealed to me over other USB readers was this one has a detachable base, so I can have it on my desk and it actually looks nice, but then when I need to take it with my laptop I can just pop off the reader and toss it in my bag and go.
