    Any suggestions for a CF + SD card reader for my Mac Pro? Bus-powered preferred...

    I just use a Belkin CF reader, minimal cast and a nice orange color :)

    All USB card readers are about the same. Performance depands on the card not the reader. If you want the best you can buy Firewire card readers. These are faster and more expensive (close to $90) and usually accept just one type of memory card but can shave some seconds off a big download

    I had a Belkin one that worked fine in my MacBook Pro except that it wouldn't read any SD cards over 1GB nor would it read SDHC. I replaced it with a SanDisk model and it now reads my 2GB SD cards. It says it will read SDHC but I haven't tried that. Just make sure you look that the model your buying will read the cards you have.

    I love my Lexar FW400 card reader. I bought it off a guy here. Still not FW800, but faster than my USB 2.0--clearly. At 13mb+ per file it made transfers to an external drive slow as ****.
