I've used a number of different card readers over the last 4 or 5 years. Card readers are the only way to fly. No relying on the battery power of the camera and quicker. No need to install secondary download programs to clog up your hard drive. Simply drag and drop from the camera card to you image directory.

Only downer : some models were a pain in the butt to install, but I've had the same problem with certain brands of USB micro drives. If you decide to get one see if you can get one that comes with a driver disk. That's been the problem before. XP wasn't able to load them for some reason without the driver and then I had to track them down on the net. Usually found them.
