From our Holiday Buyers' Guide 2005-2006: And here's an even better idea: combine an iPod dock with a fully-featured flash card reader, capable of handling Compact Flash, Microdrive, SmartMedia, xD, Secure Digital (SD), MMC, Memory Stick and Pro. Cards go in the front, while any iPod or mini fits with a resizing bar found on the dock's top. Line-out, S-Video-out, and iPod data jacks are on the back. There's one catch: under the iPod data jack is a standard mini-USB port with a cable. Unlike Belkin's hub, you need to connect one cable for the iPod and another for the flash card transfers - an inelegant solution that saves space but wastes your ports. Why a B grade? It's only a few dollars more than Apple's Dock, and does more. Black and white versions are available.






Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
