Constant removal and insertion has the potential of damage to card and camera pins,I prefer to use USB cable method.

I've been using CF readers for over 10 years now, not one pin bent. The reader is much faster, and I don't use the camera batteries. Besides, I don't like the camera taking up the space on my computer desk while it's downloading.
