Any New Readers for Extreme/Extreme Pro 60MB/s / 90MB/s?

Hello!  Is anything in the pipeline to replace the Extreme FireWire (FW) Reader?  I have the 1394b reader spec'd at 40MB/s while the UDMA CF cards have much higher transfer specs.  I keep hoping to see a USB 3 reader announcement!

 

Thanks,  - Dave

there is currently an Express card adapter available that can take advantage of the higher speeds. I am sure USB 3 is coming but probably waiting on higher market saturation before releasing it.

Hi, thanks for that.  I have an Express Card reader that does quite well, but mostly I'm on my desktop and rely on the FireWire reader.  I'll keep an eye out for the USB 3 reader.
