If you’ve been wondering what the heck to you could do with that ExpressCard slot (the one that’s 33mm wide) on your good old MacBook Pro, wonder no more. I think I’ve found the best way to use it, thanks to the SanDisk MultiCard ExpressCard Adapter.
It works on Macs and PCs, but more importantly, it flushes into your laptop’s ExpressCard slot completely so you could leave it in there. Now you’ll be able to read most common flash memory cards while on the move, including SD, SDHC, MultiMediaCard, MMC plus, and the various kinds of MemoryStick Duo (i.e. from my Sony M1).
My buddy Peter found that it cheaper somewhere, but for $19.90 on Amazon, you can’t really go wrong. From my preliminary tests, the data transfer from flash card to hard drive is way faster than going through your digital camera’s USB cable. I’m lovin’ it!
