Sonnet Echo ExpressCard Pro Thunderbolt Adapter - $229 - in stock
(Thunderbolt cable not included) Can be used to read SxS Cards.

Sonnet’s Echo ExpressCard Pro Thunderbolt Adapter adds an ExpressCard/34 slot to any computer to which it’s connected, enabling you to use a wide variety of ExpressCard/34 cards to add a range of interfaces and capabilities to your system. Because these adapters support hot-swapping, you can select and change the ExpressCard to use as needed—they supports most Sonnet ExpressCard/34 cards (with a PCI Express interface), such as our FireWire interfaces, CompactFlash and SDXC card readers, select eSATA controllers, and interface cards for our Qio CF4 and Qio E3 pro media readers. They also support specialty adapters like RME’s HDSPe ExpressCard, plus interface cards for the AJA io Express and the Matrox MX02 family. Support for Sony SxS memory cards simply requires the installation of Sony’s SxS drivers. Set up for these Sonnet adapters is simple—just connect one directly to your computer or at the end of a Thunderbolt device chain with a Thunderbolt cable (not included)—that’s it. There’s no software to install and no power supply to plug in. Plug the ExpressCard/34 card or SxS memory card into the Echo ExpressCard/34 Thunderbolt Adapter as you would into a notebook computer’s ExpressCard slot, install software for the adapter if necessary, and you are ready to work.

Warranty - 1 Year.
