i recently bought a panasonic FZ15 with a 1GB SD card. I have a USB cable hooked into the back of my computer - all I have todo is plug the camera into the cable and download to computer - simple. Any reason I should invest in a card reader for my application ?

It depends on how many pictures you take and whether you're in a hurry or not. A new USB 2.0 card reader downloads photos about 5 times faster than the USB connection direct to the camera. It also saves your camera battery powerfor taking pictures. That's about it
