Compact Flash Memory Cards For Small-Scale Mass Storage
Originally developed for use in high-end digital cameras, compact flash memory cards offer safe, reliable, portable solutions for your daily data storage and backup demands. A little more expensive than other more delicate forms of small-scale portable storage such as USB flash drives, SDHC and micro SD cards, the much sturdier compact flash memory cards offer a more reliable performance and last much longer.
Tough and Reliable
Compact flash construction offers you a major advantage over other memory drives because, unlike SDHC and micro SD cards, the storage medium in compact flash cards is almost completely sealed from the outside environment — where dust and dirt can damage your files — in a rugged plastic housing that also protects their connectors. They're available in standard sizes from 4 GB to 128 GB and higher, so there’s a compact flash card to meet your short-term storage needs. They’re handy for saving work files for big projects all in one place and for sharing materials among work groups and offices. An added bonus is that compact flash memory cards support processing and retrieval speeds fast enough to run applications such as Microsoft Word and PowerPoint on the fly.
Compact Flash Memory Cards and Readers
Like SDHC and micro SD cards, compact flash cards are separate units from their readers, so you can use them knowing that you’re protected from data loss that can occur when all-in-one USB memory sticks and flash drives fail. While some computers and smart devices come equipped with compact flash slots, you may also need external flash slots.
