Single Slot, Dual Purposes

Sonnet’s Echo ExpressCard Pro is the fastest, least-expensive SxS™ memory card reader available. It’s also expands your computer’s connectivity by enabling the use of ExpressCard/34 adapter cards. Either way you look at it, this handy Thunderbolt adapter adds functionality to your computer it is otherwise missing.

The Thunderbolt Connection

Connect the Echo ExpressCard Pro directly to your computer’s Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 port, or at the end of a Thunderbolt device chain with a Thunderbolt cable (sold separately). The Sonnet adapter requires no software and is bus-powered—it operates off its Thunderbolt connection and there’s no need to plug in a power supply. If you’ve got a Mac with Thunderbolt 3 ports, you can use the Echo adapter by connecting an Apple® Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter between the computer and Thunderbolt cable connected to the Sonnet adapter.

Ingests Any SxS Card, Fast (XQD™, Too)

With the installation of Sony® drivers on your computer, the Echo ExpressCard Pro becomes an SxS card reader, supporting all generations of SxS media, including the latest SxS Pro+ E Series cards. Supporting the cards’ maximum transfer speeds, this Pro card reader ingests files at up to 440 MB/s! Using the Sony ExpressCard Adapter for XQD Memory Card (QDA-EX1) adapter, you can also read XQD cards with this reader.

Adapter for ExpressCard/34 Cards

Echo ExpressCard Pro allows you to choose and add more connections to your setup using current and legacy ExpressCard/34 adapter cards. Insert the compatible ExpressCard/34 card into the Echo Pro adapter, install software for the card if necessary, and start working. Using ExpressCard/34 cards, you can add FireWire, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and eSATA ports and more! The Pro also supports specialty adapters like RME's HDSPe ExpressCard, plus interface cards for the AJA® io Express and the Matrox® MX02 family.
