The time it took to transfer 225 Nikon D1X JPEG and NEF photos from CompactFlash card to computer was tested using the cards and readers listed. The times have been converted to Kilobytes per second (K/sec); the fastest throughput for each card/reader combination is in bold.

Note: Because the data in the table below has been converted from transfer time to K/sec, higher numbers are better in this section of the report.
