I just don't see the need for this as only CF would even be able to come close to maxing usb 2.0, and even then @ 20mbs that's pretty fast for a few photos.

How can capacity be fast?! :confused: Maybe largest?

Nevertheless, it is a nice product. Also, I wonder how the simultaneous read and write works.
I had a card reader that was ok when I read/write from 1 card. Doing read/write on 2 cards and it got froze...

Current CF cards can reach over 90MB/s. That's more than double the actual maximum bandwidth of USB 2.0. How don't you see any need for this?

Naw, you can get SD cards that break the 20MBS barrier as well.

Things only get faster so it's all good.

Or hell this is handy when transferring from one type of storage to another.

Fair enough, but is 25mbs really sooo much faster than 20 ? as you can still get that over USB 2.

Faster is better but I am growing increasingly convinced that USB 3 is stillborn.
