Performance

With my old CF card adapter, 82 images shot at jpeg fine took 3 minutes to download to my laptop. With the Delkin 32-bit CardBus adapter the same operation took only 50 seconds! This is seven seconds faster than my USB 2.0 adapter on my home system. Highly recommended. Be aware that the documentation does recommend a "pro" version CF card to see the faster speeds. I am using Lexar 16x High-Speed cards with Write Acceleration technology.

Product Overview

CardBus is a high-performance 32-bit version of the PC Card standard. CardBus cards are able to take advantage of internal bus speeds that can be as much as four-to-six times faster than 16-bit PC Cards. The CardBus CompactFlash Adapter will allow consumers to get the maximum capability out of their high-speed CompactFlash and CompactFlash PRO cards without the bottle-neck of the older 16-bit standard. Since 1998, virtually all high-end notebook products have incorporated CardBus technology. With the CardBus CompactFlash Adapter, laptop users will finally be able to take full advantage of the equipment they already own. Like all CardBus cards, the CardBus CF Adapter employs a special keying mechanism, which prevents insertion in systems with slots that only support 16-bit PC Cards. Therefore, CardBus cards cannot be used in systems that lack CardBus slots. All CardBus cards can be easily distinguished from standard PC Cards by the gold grounding shield strip across the connector.

Additional Information Features: CardBus transfer rates are, theoretically, up to 132MB a second. Actual transfer rates for the CardBus CompactFlash Adapter will depend on the CompactFlash card's controller speed. Customers with high-speed CF cards, such as the CompactFlash PRO, will notice a significant speed difference when downloading files, compared with a standard PC Card adapter. The design provides for a compact, rugged card/adaptor combination that can be inserted completely within its host computer without any external cabling. Many photographers, especially Pro's, are looking for ways to reduce the amount of extra equipment they have to carry during photo shoots The CardBus CompactFlash Adapter will continue to support the hot-swapping and plugand- play capabilities that users have come to expect from 16-bit PC Cards. The high transfer rate and ease of use make the CardBus CompactFlash Adapter competitive with USB 2.0 and FireWire readers Windows XP, 2000, ME and 98/98 SE operating systems are supported
System Requirements The required driver software uses a simple plug-and-play installation. Apple Mac OS 10.2.8 through current is supported with drivers downloadable at www.delkin.com
