Sonnet Qio MR Professional Media Reader/Writer for Windows PCs: Picture 1 regular

About this item

The Sonnet Qio MR is a multi-tasking marvel; this is the industry's first device which supports all major HD video memory card formats in one compact, mobile rack-mounted unit. Qio MR reads from and writes to just about any memory card P2, SxS, CompactFlash, SDHC and SDXC, all at high speed. Replacing multiple standalone card readers, Qio MR's dual P2, SxS and CF slots enable you to ingest files more efficiently and the included SD card adapter handles SDHC and SDXC media. Qio MR reads files from any combination of cards with aggregate bandwidth up to 200 MB/sec., much faster than FireWire or USB 2.0 adapters are capable.

For PC users, Qio MR provides all the capabilities and advantages of the original Qio users have come to appreciate in an easy to install, Windows-compatible package. The Qio MR chassis slides easily into an empty 5.25" mobile rack (drive) bay, while the included Internal PCI Express Bus Extender PCIe interface card installs into any half or full-height PCIe slot.
