Kingston Releases HS4 All-In-One Media Reader

Kingston, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the launch of its 4th generation HS4 All-In-One Media Reader. The multi-function reader improves upon the previous model as it reads all major card format types including the latest SD card speeds (UHS-I, UHS-II) and CF Type I and II (UDMA 0-7).


Users can easily back up and transfer music, photos, videos and other digital data with USB 3.0 high-speed performance. This allows users to save time transferring files as USB 3.0 allows up to 5Gb/s data transfer speed – almost 10x faster than USB 2.0. The portable, small- form factor reader has a brushed nickel case and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.

Kingston® also announces a new 64GB capacity addition to its CompactFlash Ultimate 600x family. The 32GB and 64GB CF Ultimate 600x cards offer premium results with speeds up to 90MB/s read and write to support burst mode photography or HD video. The addition of MediaRECOVER® software lets users recover deleted files and restore corrupt files, if needed.

“HS4 All-In-One Media Reader is a great device to quickly move data between multiple devices whether at home or on the road,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “The higher-capacity CF Ultimate 600x lets avid photographers and videographers capture more content and when used with the reader, data transfer is simple and fast.”

HS4 All-In-One Media Reader carries a two-year warranty while the CF Ultimate 600x has a lifetime warranty. Both products are backed by legendary Kingston reliability and free technical support. For more information, please visit
