Handera’s now legendary handhelds were very popular because they supported the cheaper and faster CompactFlash cards. Aceeca’s Meazura is available with a CF option – mine was equipped with a 128MB card.

Getting the module out of the Meazura means a bit of work. You need to open the two screws at the top of the unit, and then pull the module out:

The module itself has a black end cap that needs to be removed in order to make the CF card removable. The little cuts in the card need to be at the top btw: You cannot insert a CF card the wrong way, guides to the sides prevent this!

The card module itself is integrated into the Meazura very well. You don’t need to load a driver or anything – just plug the module in and party! Aceeca did a really good job with the module’s speed. Here are a few benchmark results:

When comparing them with my m500′s results(Toshiba 128m minisd), you see that the Meazura writes very very fast. In fact, it outwrites my Tungsten T3 by far – controller conflicts seem to be uncommon in the CF arena:

Overall, I am impressed by Aceeca’s card module. It works very well, is fast and is geeky in its own style. OK, you need a screwdriver to change cards – but overall, this module is great if you need to store/process large amounts of data with your Meazura!
