Just a heads-up for those interested.  I got a USB 3 card reader yesterday (SanDisk ImageMate All-in-one, from B&H).  It seems to be much faster than my old Lexar FireWire card reader.  USB 3 has almost completely superceded FireWire in my practice.


The SanDisk reader is petite -- 1 x 4 x 12 cm.  That's without the USB 3 cable, which is long enough for desk use but gargantuan for portability.  I'll look for a smaller cable.


I selected the ImageMate because I needed a reader that accepts Memory Stick, SDHC, and Compact Flash.  It also accepts Micro cards.
