Transcend releases new multi-card reader M5

Transcend announced the arrival of its new Multi-Card Reader M5. As per Transcend, unlike other card readers, all five of the M5's card slots are clearly labeled on the top of the reader and in computer browser next to the drive letter to avoid confusion and save time (software download required).  

The M5 supports all the latest memory cards and allows transfer of music, videos, photos or documents through its USB 2.0 interface. 

The Multi-Card Reader M5 offers a slot for almost every memory card currently on the market, including: CompactFlash and Microdrive (for hi-end Digital SLR cameras), SD cards (the popular storage format for mainstream consumer digital cameras), xD cards, the complete Memory Stick series, miniSD and microSD (for most mobile phones).  

Transcend's M5 is fully compatible with the USB 2.0 interface and is capable of data transfer rates up to 480Mb/s. In addition, it supports the latest SD 2.0 (SDHC) and MMC 4.0 standards for hi-end memory cards. The M5 also directly accepts newer, mini-size mobile phone memory cards such as miniSD, microSD, MMCmobile MS Duo and M2 without having to use an adapter.

Currently the card is available in either hot pink or ivory.
