    Default High speed card reader

    Hi,
    I'm looking for a high speed card reader.
    Anything to recommend?
    What is the maximum speed of card readers in the market?

    I think most high speed are Firewire Card Reader. Very hard to find and cost 2 to 3 times the price of a good High Speed USB 2.0 Card Reader. Can try Sandisk Firewire Card reader. Most likely you will need to buy from Internet.

    Where did u buy it from? I asked around in SLS but couldn't find it.
    How much does it cost?
    I wonder if it is worth the price.

    Thanks... yeah, I asked at many shops at SLS and they didn't have it too.
    It is rather expensive... do you think the price premium is worth it?

    yea i think it's worth it. fast speeds, reads almost all types of cards (microSDHC, miniSD, SD/HC, MMC, memory sticks, xD (M/H)). primary reason i bought this card reader is because my old reader couldnt read my new SDHC cards
