Default What Compactflash card reader do you like most?

I think I'll buy one tonight. I only have USB 1.1 on my computer, but I think I'll buy a USB 2 reader for the future. Any suggestions?

This is the one I have been looking at. To bad its a little pricy at $99.99cdn. I just like the fact it pops into a 3.5" bay on the front of the computer so I have 2 less wire to deal with around the computer and one less thing sitting on or around my desk. Having a MM/SD card reader for my old camera and a usb cable for my new one sitting on top of the desk whenever I use either is a bit of an annoyance. :P

I picked up the SanDisk ImageMate USB 2.0 Reader/Writer for $20 tonight.

Well for $20 you can't go wrong at all! Nice price as well, since the store that has the one I posted also sells the one you picked up but unfortunately for $39.95cdn.

When on our trip to Alberta I picked up a Lexar 40x 256MB that came packaged with a JumpShot Reader. The cost was $179.00 Canadian. It was only $20 more than the Lexar 12x that had no JumpShot included.

Now I have enough memory to take a total of 68 RAW images

I'm trying out a 31/2" IDE 6in1 reader (25). It's only 1.5 times faster than USB1, BUT I can now run DOS 6.2 with all my old Norton Utils, mess around with some parts of the cards format other readers won't let you see and stick it in my wifes non-usb pc when I get bored breaking and mending cards!

Tiger Direct has it for $40
It is internal (with 5 1/4 drive bay adapter) OR external.

Just don't install the driver for 2k.
