Hi Leon:

once again, good information! thx!

i seem to be moving towards the Lexar Professional UDMA FireWire®
800 Reader.

Reasons include:

Firewire 800 is backwards compatible to Firewire 400 (6-pin), which is far more common today, yet, because it is a Firewire 800 unit, it is more "future proof", if there ever is such a thing!

This is about as fast as I've ever seen - even faster or the same as the Sandisk Extreme Firewire Reader (maybe these two are basically both top-of-the-line).

Only one "con" that I can see: the Lexar unit does NOT include an adapter to go from 800 to 400, so you'll have to buy one yourself, but i believe that they are very inexpensive.

Well, i think this about exhausts the state of the art for THE fastest CF readers in existence! Ha ha...

All these models range from 20 to 30Mb/s with most fast cards.

But one thought: the Sandisk Extreme firewire 800 reaches around
40MB/s. A simple CF to Expresscard adapter (PCIe) however reaches
above 45MB/s (interface is faster than the card can provide).
