    Hi guys.

    Im looking for a USB3.0 adapter for the 34 slot and is there any suggestions?
    I saw LaCie version but apparently its locked for their own products.

    I do want a TV tuner but Im pretty sure thats useless here in the US.
    Currently, I have a SD card reader but Id rather have a USB2 or USB3 adapter.

    Any suggestions on those USB 2/3 adapters or for other products that are compatible with 34?

    Also, people with the old 06-09 13~15in users and 17in users, what do you use your slot for?

    Sorry, I forgot to mention I have no use in eSATA.
    All my external drives are via USB or WiFi.

    I'm confused.

    You asked "Also, people with the old 06-09 13~15in users and 17in users, what do you use your slot for?"

    When Inside_line answers their use you tell them it's not useful to you. I don't see the correlation.



    You can use anything from an cellular modem to a CF card reader to USB 3.0, Firewire, Ethernet. The choices are plentiful.

    Since there isn't a single mac in the current lineup that supports expresscard, I don't think hardware makers will be making new mac compatible devices, although I hope I'm wrong.
