SanDisk just unveiled two of the most beautiful card readers I’ve ever seen. They look like architectural monuments, perched on those 3 legs. I can see these looking quite lovely on a solid wood work table. And apparently SanDisk didn’t skimp out on the specs either, as each one is said to be able to read at 30 megabytes per second and write at 27 megabytes per second (of course, to get the full speed, you’ll need a fast card too).

The one pictured on the left is the all-in-one reader capable of taking every memory card format available ($30) and the one on the right is the more compact multi-card version capable of reading xD, Memory Stick, SD, SDHC, and MMC ($20).

These are making me want to upgrade my dinky USB 2.0 reader.
