Moving from a 60D to a Mark II so I'll be using CF cards now. What's the best reader?

The Lexar USB 3.0 Dual-slot reader has never let me down.

+1 for the Lexar USB 3.0 reader. Heard Kingston one is good too and costs less.

using a kingston Usb 3 reader which works well with windows 8. Sometimes it won't read cards if you put your computer to sleep and then wake it up, forcing you to restart your computer. Anyone have issues with their lexar reader not working after putting your computer to sleep? (running windows 8)
