some might have seen this
includes speeds for cf/sd cards and readers.
SLS AP (lvl 1) selling the SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 2.0 for $48
SLS Best Bargain (lvl 5) selling the kingston reader for $22.
in the end i've decided on the kingston one.. cheaper and performance wise roughly equal according to the review (above link)
