the Aska reader....i think they are the first one who came up with this, later other companies like Delkin and Lexar came up with their version.....a year has past, maybe the price have dropped (hopefully a lot)..... hmmmm

anyone has the latest price from S'pore?

Thanks.

check with EastGear. I remember they used to stock it cos i nearly got one from them. Didn't get it in the end cos i forgot to until the day i left the country. Delkin apparently is just an Aska with a diff label.

What's so special about this adaptor being so expensive? It seems to me buying a USB2 card reader is a way cheaper alternative. :dunno:

Note that these adapter are 32 bit Cardbus based CF card adapter not the cheap and slow 16-bit PCMCIA based CF Card adapter.

Why not USB2 adapter? Because the Cardbus adapter is faster and one less thing to loose if you do work remotely.

My 16 bit PCMCIA really chokes up the CPU resources... the whole system crawls and I'm struggling through my regular applications (eg. Photoshop)..

Anybody knows if the 32bit Cardbus solves that problem?

the 32bit works great. But last i checked EG doesn't do it anymore either. I did a test on my 1Gb G4 at EG once, brilliant stuff. Fast and doesn't suck resources.
