sxs card readers

other than the external sony reader that goes for 249.00 are there any you can mount in your computer in the front in a drive bay?
as far as their main purpose of transferring the files, all the same?
breakdowns happening on these would be minimal i would think

I haven't seen any but you can pick up a used usb sony SxS card reader for about $150.00 on some of the forums. With the external reader you can take it with you into the field to use with a laptop as well as use it at home on your desktop computer.

I'd love to see a eSATA connected ExpressCard reader but haven't heard of anything like that - just the Sonnet Qio PCIe unit for Macs. USB is so slow!

We happen to have a netbook with an ExpressCard slot and a gigabit network adapter - this works pretty well for quickly offloading SxS cards to network storage - about triple the speed of the USB connected Sony reader.

I'm using one of this with my desktop:

PCI Express to ExpressCard 34|54 Slot Drive Read-Writer Front, Synchrotech

- and am very happy. Super fast transfer of SxS, adequate - of USB based SDHCs...

Full SxS speed, not limited by the bus speed as the latter is 2.5Gbps (PCI Express).

In practice, it's well over 100 MBps when copying to a RAID 0 HDD (in the case of SDHC cards - below 30 MBps).

Oh, and one more thing - I'm also using the Synchrotech PCIe->ExpressCard drive to read my nanoFlash-recorded CF cards, through a simple ExpressCard CF adapter. Up to 90 MBps read speed!
