Just bought a blazing fast new PC to run Premiere and realized that although I now have lots of USB 3.0 ports on it I don’t have a Express card that supports USB 3.0
Looking for a faster way to unload an SXS card into my PC – Searched but can’t seem to find anything. Ideas?

I feel your pain. My USB 2 Sony SXS card reader/writer tranfers XDCAM EX files at 31MB/s, which means you can copy 31 GB ( about 2 hours) in about 17 minutes.
With my Dell Precision M6600 and its Express/card slot, the same operation only takes 3 minutes and 17 seconds at 160 MB/s.
Expect transfer speeds of 80-90 MB/s with a USB 3.0 reader/writer but Sony has yet to come up with one.
