Default Card Readers?

I;ve been downloading directly from my D60 to my computer. No problems. Why use a card reader? I thinkk I read that downloading directly takes a toll on the camera.

I find that the transfer rate is significantly faster using an external card reader vs. a direct connection with the camera.

Definitely faster using a card reader, and as importantly, a fast card. You can get a card reader for $10, but compared to a good one at $30-100+ it will suck. This matters if you take gigs of photos at a time like I do. I have filled a 32gb card each day during a whole weekend so you can imagine...

Also looks like Sandisk ImageMate Multi-Card USB 2.0 is the faster
