My new laptop (Window 7) came with two 3.0 USB ports an one 2.0 port.
I just got a 3.0 card reader and did a little comparison using a CF card with raw files.

transferring 3.56GB from flash card to laptop (Window 7)

using 2.0 connection it takes about 7 minutes and 20 seconds
using 3.0 connection it takes 1 minute and 15 seconds

My laptop does not have a built in reader that accepts CF cards.

with SSD hard drives and USB 3.0 its really hard to go back to anything before. I never understood why it took so long to create a protocol that moves data quicker.

I get about 85MB/Sec with my 400x CF card which makes moving 32GB of data much more tolerable.

OP: What memory card reader are you using and what kind/brand/model HDD/SSD do you have the data going to?

But of course. Something like this would do it: LINK (external link)

Provided that you have an open PCI-e 1X slot on your motherboard.

Got a Lexar Pro USB 3.0 reader for ~$17 (B&H and Adorama are giving 50% off the reader if you buy a mem. card with it) and a two port USB 3.0 PCI-E card for $10 @ Radioshack (Link (external link)). The speed increase is quite noticeable, esp. since by USB 2.0 reader didn't support UDMA.

Transcend is a good reader, the only reason I got Lexar was that it cost me $17...otherwise I'd buy Transcend.

Since I have two 16gb Kingston brand CF, I figured I would stick to the same brand reader.

Yea im actually kinda leaning more towards that one. I like to stick my memory card readers under my desk flush with the front edge and off to the side with double sided foam tape and that transcend would work nicely plus its black which is a much for all my electronics. And ya cant complain about twenty bucks.
