Universal Memory Bank from Iogear simplifies data transfer


Iogear makes great peripheral items that make your computing tasks easier to manage. Here's one more interesting product from them, the Universal Memory Bank.


IRVINE, Calif., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's savvy digital consumers
can now easily transfer images and files between their multimedia devices
and computers with IOGEAR's new Universal Memory Banks. Bridging the gap
between PCs / Macs and cell phones, digital cameras and PDAs, IOGEAR's
12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader / Writer and 56-in-1 Memory Card Reader / Writer
provide all-in-one solutions for effortless high-speed, bi-directional data
transfers. These small, high-capacity and easy-to-carry devices are
designed for on-the-go business professionals, travelers and individuals
who use multiple gadgets and need an easy way to pass data to and from
their computers.

These products save space and power, eliminating the hassle of keeping
track of multiple USB cords and reducing energy that is typically used to
transfer data among multiple devices. They also do not require separate
adapters for each memory card, making them a great travel accessory. Users
simply remove the memory card from any multimedia gadget, insert it into
the reader and plug into any computer's USB port to instantly upload
pictures, songs and documents. Individuals can also use the Universal
Memory Banks to download music and other files to their cell phones.

The 12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader / Writer (GFR209 $11.95 MSRP) is
compatible with the most in-demand memory card types, such as SD, Micro SD,
Mini SD, MMC, Memory Stick and MS Duo, making it suitable for most mobile
devices. At only 2.5 inches long and less than one inch deep, the 12-in-1
Pocket Card Reader can be stashed and carried for easy use anywhere. It
also has a built-in cable to avoid blocking other USB ports when in use.

Ideal for avid digital photographers, the 56-in-1 Memory Card Reader /
Writer (GFR281 $19.95), works with all popular memory cards, making it the
go-to gadget for transferring important information from cell phones,
digital cameras, camcorders, GPS, MP3 and PDAs. This innovative product
needs no additional adapters to work with all memory card formats, enabling
individuals who use many digital devices to keep everything they need in
one spot. For example, a journalist or family that uses multiple digital
cameras can now use one product to download photos to their computer,
rather than several cables.

"We've seen consumers begin to use more devices on a regular basis, and
recognize how frustrating it can be to keep track of multiple adapters and
components," said Miranda Su, executive vice president of IOGEAR. "We are
helping to relieve this pain point by creating products that allow people
to easily consolidate their tools and perform tasks with one product."

Both the 12-in-1 and 56-in-1 readers can simultaneously read and write
multiple cards at speeds up to 480 Mpbs, and offer a hot swap feature for
replacing storage cards without restarting a computer. In addition, they
are USB 2.0-compliant, as well as backward-compliant with USB 1.1. Each
reader works with Windows 2000, XP or Vista and are compatible with Mac OSX
10.3.9 or greater.

Both products are immediately available online at http://www.iogear.com
and through major catalog and online resellers, as well as select retail
outlets. They come with a standard three-year warranty.
