    I'm looking to get a good card reader for my MBP's expresscard slot. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I currently have a Sony camera, so Memory Stick is a must, but I'm looking to buy a Nikon or Canon DSLR soon. So, the more cards it can read, the better.

    Also, just as a side thought, are there any other expresscard accessories worth owning?

    At the moment the ExpressCard slot is a new interface but over the next couple of years, there's gonna be a whole load of different accessories available. What are worth owning will depend on the user.

    Most media card readers will only be operating as a fast as the USB2 standard, what makes the ExpressCard special is the ability to have the slots concealed however, unless your planing to use the slots lots, it's actually cheaper to buy a USB based reader - but that's up to you.
