150X Read & Write compact flash card
“Most Compact Flash cards currently on the market read at high speeds but write at lower speeds. Professional photographers cannot wait for the card to write the data, as they may miss the perfect photo while waiting,” remarked Harvey Liu, Advanced Media president. “Our new Ridata 150X Read and Write Compact Flash Card does just that and offers users exceptionally fast read and write speeds, six capacity sizes up to 8GB, low-power consumption and remarkable reliability in all types of weather.”
