Thread: Any SDHC card readers to recommend?

  1. #1

    Exclamation Any SDHC card readers to recommend?

    I'm using a Lexar SDHC and I need a good reliable card reader for it. (not too expensive)

    My old brandless card reader is probably spoilt cos somehow my comp doesn't detect it anymore... And I'm afraid it may have corrupted my card

    So folks, any recommendations? TIA!

    I got a black Prolink multi-card reader from Challenger early last year. Works for both Mac and PC. Costs around $15 if i remember correctly.

    Using 'Mini' brand multi reader. Quite sleek and compact. Should cost less than $30. Able to read most format and transfer speed is decent too

    Can someone recommend me to a shop at SLS? I just went there and was so lost... The only shop which I've visited before is Alan Photo Trading cos that's where my dad buys cams... However they only have the SanDisk multi card reader. No Lexar :/

    Is there a shop where I can find the Lexar multi card reader?

    SLS, Best Bargain shop on 5th floor, Kingston card reader for about $20+ (vaguely remember). Get the memory cards from there also, so far prices are relatively the best!

    Just check my Lexar Professional UDMA Reader receipt. I bought it from one of those computer show (07/03/2008) and the shop name is Convergent Systems. I think this is the authorized dealer of Lexar in Singapore.

    The contact info on the receipt:
    60 Albert Street #11-01
    OG Albert Complex
    Tel: 68281817

    Can give them a call and see which shop carry this item in SLS.

    note that older card readers are unable to read SDHC cards. you'll need the newer card readers to do so.

    i'm using SanDisk ImageMate all-in-one card reader
