This morning, ProGrade Digital announced its newest product, the SD Dual-Slot USB 3.1, Gen. 2 Card Reader. As with their other workflow readers, the SD Dual-Slot reader transfers simultaneously at speeds up to 10Gb/s.
“Many of today’s professional cameras have two SD slots, so it is only natural that ProGrade Digital’s newest USB 3.1, Gen. 2 workflow reader be a dual-slot for SD cards,” said founder and CEO Wes Brewer. “Based on the successes of earlier workflow readers, we know that our patent-pending magnetic base, compact rugged design and inclusion of two USB cables (types A-to-C and C-to-C) really resonates with both professionals and prosumers. The dual-slot reader for SD cards provides just one more choice for our customers.”
Key specs include compatibility with UHS-I and UHS-II cards, an LED indicator for data transfer activity, magnetized bottom for connecting the reader to a laptop, backwards compatibility with USB 3.0 devices and a 2-year warranty.
What makes ProGrade Digital unique is they have a serial number laser-etched on the back of every memory card. This tells manufacturing information, firmware, controller and more to support if customers ever have an issue. It also gives ProGrade Digital a way to reach out to its customers in advance of any problems. Support is then able to track the card and customers can send in their cards for firmware updates.
