Default USB 2.0 on PCI vs PCMCIA

sponsored links

 
i'll soon be purchasing a Sony DSC-P10 digital camera witch connects via USB 2.0 and i currently dont have a USB 2.0 connection.

what i want, to do is install a USB 2.0 card either PCI in my desktop or PCMCIA in my notebook.

But i hear PCMCIA USB 2.0 cards are really slow compared to the PCI ones??

has anybody here ever used a PCMCIA USB 2.0 CARD???

or has any info witch could help?

Only by a small margin, may be 5-10% slower I think, we use them to copy data off customers PC onto the USB2 external HDD, and its its just for transfering data and pictures, it will be difficult to tell the difference between PCI and PCM.

HTH

Just a reminder, most if not all PCM USB2 card need separate PSU, so dont start thinking these will be a truely 'portable' solution, as some PSU can weight 10 times more than the card itself.

My pcmcia usb2 card needs external power added to it to run at full speed, otherwise it runs slower.
