Kingston Card ReaderKingston today announced the new Kingston(R) Media Reader, an external, hi-speed reader designed to support 19 popular types of Flash memory cards, is now shipping. The reader is the perfect solution for moving data between Flash cards and a computer or other device with a USB port as it requires no adapters or power cable.

"The new media reader handles so many different card types that it's ideal for the consumer or business professional who uses multiple card formats to transfer data, music, photos, videos and other files between mobile phones, cameras, PCs and other devices," said Jean Wong, Flash memory product manager, Kingston. "Its compact size makes it easy to carry while traveling or keeping on the desktop for quick access."

With four built-in slots to handle the various card formats, the Kingston Media Reader (Kingston part #: FCR-HS219/1) has a unique retractable chassis that keeps inserted cards safe. It also houses a short, compact USB cable for use on the go with a notebook or other portable device with a USB port. A detachable three-foot extension USB cable is also included for use at home or at the office.

The Kingston Media Reader carries a two-year warranty and an MSRP of $17.00 (U.S. only).
