    Hello folks,

    I am planning to buy a memory card reader (primarily sd and cf) that is made specifically for a Mac Pro, and I came across this product: http://www.nervian.com/

    Right when I was about to bust out my credit card and clicked the Buy Now button on the site, it seems that it has already missed its release date by a year. Has any of you taken an interest in this product?

    Never heard of it, but I spent $13 on a Targus USB powered card reader at walmart. Handles all kinds of formats including SDHC and CF. Area wise, it's smaller than a credit card. Very easy to pack with me for use on a laptop. I would recommend something like that over something that takes up so much space and only really looks good on a Mac Pro.

    I have a transcend multi-card reader already for travel. I was just looking for something stationary for my mac pro, and came across the product. Too bad...:(

    I was researching that as well when I was looking for a card reader for my mac pro and from what I found it never came about.

    Here was my answer though. Only 25 or so, of course its all for looks! Its a pro-gear g5.

    Here you can buy it, but its $50 bucks. link

    You may want to hold off for a little bit, according to Atech they are coming out with the Pro Gear G5X, although it doesn't say what any differences will be.

    If it adds a USB to the front, I will gladly get rid of mine.

    I would suggest something with a FireWire connection instead.

    Moving 16GB from a CompactFlash card via USB 2.0 is just torture.

    I agree, however, to my knowledge no one makes a firewire adapter that accepts both SDHC and CF cards, and I need one that can do both. I don't really mind a non firewire adapter, I'm not a pro event shooter who has to off load numerous cards during an event or something.

    The atech looks pretty cool, I will wait to see if they come out with something new.
