    Hey,
    plz help me find the fastest card reader for my macbook pro. Its the 2.53Ghz unibody model, one of the first ones. I'm pretty sure it uses expresscard slot. I would prefer the card reader to use expresscard slot as well as my USB and FW ports are all taken up. lol. It needs to handle the UDMA CF cards.
    thx in advance,
    Marek

    I have the Delkin ExpressCard 34 CompactFlash reader. It worked well with my older MacBook Pro and its ExpressCard slot.

    The limiting factor on reading your CF cards will always be the CF card, even if they're rated 300x or 600x - so don't expect 3Gbps transfers. :D

    This is fast, but it's FW800. I might just consider unplugging the other device when you need to download.

    thx guys, both of them look good. I would prefer it to be expresscard but that FW800 beast looks good as well. I'll look into those some more.
    feel free to post your opinions,
    thx in advance
