What is the Best SD Reader/Writer?

My budget is around $25. lower cost preferable but quality is a higher concern.

A multiformat reader woudln't hurt and a PCMCIA reader would be awesome if not firewire or usb is good too.

Lexar and Sandisk make USB 2.0 Multi-Card readers now. The prices have probably dropped since Steve reviewed them. You'll find reviews of card readers here:

The Sandisk SD reader-writer I bought at Walmart several months ago for C$27 is a great unit. That's a little less than U.S. $20-- you can't beat that.
