    Are there any ExpressCard/34 Media Readers that sit flush with the MBP and don't stick out. I'd like to buy one to read my SD card and I probably won't take it out much.

    does anyone know exactly how well this works? the reviews on apple's site don't seem very reliable. only 3 reviews, and one of them is a 1/5 b/c the sd card sticks out....

    i'm also looking at this one:

    I have the Belkin Card reader and here is what it looks like, very cool I leave mine in all the time since its flush. I don't know if it uses more battery power just by been in there though.

    That does look good! Just paint it silver and people will think it's factory. :)

    I got it at the Apple Store when I got my MBP D2C for $29.99 plus tax. :D

    Looks good, take some other shots if you can... it's hard to see the color :)

    great pics again!

    one question. does it sit 100% flush? cause it kinda looks like it sticks out a bit on the left side (of the pic)...or is that just an optical illusion b/c there's space...

    It sticks out at the corner where you see it about 1 cm or less looks like it sticks out more on the picture but its not that bad. :D

    I have the Belkin and it works good. It does stick out but it's hardly noticable. I measured it with a micrometer and sticks out less than .5mm which is practically nothing.
