Sonnet Technologies today announced that it is working with Sony Electronics Inc. to make a special offer for its North American customers: purchase Sony(R) SxS PRO(TM) 64GB memory cards and receive a choice of Sonnet Thunderbolt(TM) adapters or multicard readers. The "Read with Speed" promotion will run Sept. 1 through Oct. 31.
"Sony SxS PRO memory cards are synonymous with high transfer speeds and reliability. Likewise, our ultra-fast SxS card readers and Thunderbolt Adapter offer exceptional I/O performance," said Greg LaPorte, vice president of sales and marketing at Sonnet Technologies. "Through the 'Read with Speed' promotion, both Mac and PC users can move their file-based workflows into the fast lane, ingesting content from SxS cards in a fraction of the time previously required."
Purchasers of Sony SxS PRO SBP64A memory cards can choose from several Sonnet adapter or reader options to fit their own hardware-configuration and workflow needs. Users of computers with a Thunderbolt interface who purchase two Sony SxS PRO memory cards will receive a single-slot Echo(TM) ExpressCard(R) Pro Thunderbolt Adapter plus a $100 rebate check. The Echo ExpressCard Pro is a portable single-slot SxS memory card reader capable of ingesting content at transfer speeds up to 1.2 GB/s (150 MB/s).
For each purchase of four Sony SxS PRO 64GB memory cards, users of Mac(R) or Windows(R) notebooks with ExpressCard slots, or Mac or Windows workstations with PCIe(R) interfaces, will receive a Sonnet Qio(TM) E3 Pro SxS media reader. The Qio E3 Pro provides simultaneous high-speed ingest of content from three SxS memory cards at a transfer speed up to 1.6 GB/s (200 MB/s) for ExpressCard slots (model QIO-E3-E34) or a transfer speed up to 3.2 GB/s (400 MB/s) for PCIe interfaces (model QIO-E3-PCIE).
Finally, users of computers with Thunderbolt interfaces who purchase five Sony SxS PRO 64GB memory cards will receive the single-slot Sonnet Echo ExpressCard PRO Thunderbolt Adapter plus the Qio E3 Pro SxS Media Reader (model QIO-E3), as well as a $100 rebate check.
