I have been trying to improve my workflow and decided its time for a CF reader. I wanted to know what people's opinions and experiences have been with these. I have always just hooked a USB cable to my cameras, but I'm looking for a solution that is faster and doesn't require me to stop shooting to download. I am using a Macbook Pro (Fall 2009 model), so I have USB and Firewire available. I'd like to go cheap, but am willing to spend what I need to get what I need. I usually shoot ~ 24 gigs per job. Suggestions?
I am using a Lexar Professional card reader (here) and never had a problem. I would recommend against getting a really cheap card reader as it will be more likely to produce read/write errors. I bought the Lexar Professional after a cheapo one I had kept acting up during my downloads (randomly disconnecting, etc.).
