USB 3.0 is faster than USB 2.0. That’s a fact, jack. So then you might as well use that huge data pipe for the latest generations of speedy memory cards. This card reader from Brando can read data at 92.2MB/s and sequential write 62.17MB/s. Right now the retailer is only taking pre-orders with an expected April ship date, but the $25 price puts this model right in line with USB 2.0 readers. Since the new, faster standard is backwards compatible, this model should be at the top of your shopping list — even if you’re eventually going to ride the Thunderbolt.
