    some might have seen this
    http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/mul...e.asp?cid=6007
    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)

    Yes but only marginally, i guess not notiecable when transferring from SDCards

    http://www.glyphtech.com/site/technology_firewire.html

    From GlyphTech:

    "Even though USB 2.0 Hi-Speed has a theoretical max raw data rate slightly higher than FireWire (480 mbps vs. 400 mbps), the typical sustained transfer rates are about the same, because FireWire is a more efficient protocol to use in audio and video environments. In fact, in most cases, FireWire beats USB 2.0 Hi-Speed, albeit by a small margin. Very often it will be the computer or hard drive mechanism which limits the system performance more than the interface, so you might see about the same performance using FireWire-A or USB 2.0. "

    Not sure if anyone has pointed out frequent swapping the card in and out of camera slot might cause the pin inside the camera to bend/break. The replacement requires swapping out the camera motherboard so it is going to be in the range of around $400.

    This is an older model and i think it has since been replaced by a newer one. I got this over a year ago from AP Funan, was $40 then.

    Those slot pins are built to last a lot of abuse. My old Canon 300D which is nearly 3-4 years old still does not have any bend/breakage of pins.

    I've taken mine in and out countless times, especially when transferring pics to my laptop after every shooting day. No such issues.

    My ex 10D which was 2nd hand has taken a whole lot more ins and outs of the CF card and still nothing.

    I bought mine last month from best bargain at Sim Lim Square, Level 5. Kingston brand for only $10.00. I am using an Sandisk SD card Ultra II, 15Mb/s. The card reader can only read 'SD' cards of all forms.
