    That would be useful for people who own early MBP's!

    I don't know anyone who uses this slot.

    It doesn't sound like any of the FW or eSata cards that are out work at all, and it's an expensive way to add a Flash card reader to your laptop.

    A FW800 ExpressCard/34 adapter would be useful even to owners of later MBPs if they really wanted maximum speed. That way you'd have two separate FW channels rather than just one. All built-in FW ports on all Macs (so far in history) share a single channel.
    You're not aware of the FirmTek SeriTek 2Sm2-E ExpressCard/34 eSATA adapter, are ya? :)

    It's been around for at least a few months.

    It has real Mac OS X support.

    I bought the Belkin ExpressCard card reader:
    http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=278313

    It lives permanently in my MBP, and it means I don't have to carry around a separate reader for my camera's SD cards. Just push the SD (or MMC/MemoryStick) card in, and it appears as a drive. It's great, and sits flush with the case.

    Well worth $30 IMO.
