The Sandisk Extreme III USB reader can easily exceed 10Mb/sec whereas most of those $10 ones usually chug along at 2-4Mb/sec. Also the cheap ones tend to crap out easily especially SD readers.

It'll never be $25 again. New price across the island is >= $39.

Hey kzone, mine's the USB version. That's the new MSRP.

I went down to MSColour 2 weeks back and they told me it's all sold out.

Good buys at the SanDisk booth would be the ok priced Extreme III and Ultra SD and CF Cards...

for those who doesnt want to jostle with the crowd.. Found out Lords have stocks for the Extreme III Card Reader as well, at $45

Most prob gonna get the 4GB Ultra II, so might just live with the free card reader. Anyone knows if the free reader performs anywhere close to the extreme III reader?
