I use card readers. The main reason being it is a big drain on camera batteries, especially when i have the habit of slowly processing them one by one.

Also if you are worried about repeatedly connecting onto the puny usb connector on ur camera will wear it off or a freak short circuit zapping the camera.

Have that shop written in your blacklist log then. Haha...yeah, I walked around and surprisingly PK @ Funan managed to put that price. Other shops are at least above $34. I know there are cheaper ones but c'mon....$29 and the fact is 'branded' (yes, Sony, so wat)... is better than some that come with very colourful packaging right.

Oh well...good luck :)

I know this theads is bound to be closed but lemme digress, the new one from SanDisk also not bad (or rather looks good) but phew...about $40 - $60 and can only read CF Cards. Sony still gets my vote. D'oh I bought it already.
