Internal card readers: are there any decent ones?

I just built up a new PC and it's humming along nicely (thank you 4770k, SSD and 16gb RAM!).

I stopped short on the card reader.  I don't like external readers as I've never had one that didn't take two hands.

Unfortunately the reviews for the internal variety are pretty dismal.  The Rosewills, which seem to garner the best reviews, get pretty bad marks in the CF slot.  The pins are mounted very close to the opening making it very easy to bend from what I understand.

I'm pretty surprised you can't get one from a major maker.

Any suggestions.  Oh yeah, I'd prefer 3.0 of course.
