New MBP: Need SD/Smart Card Reader...

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Is there such thing as an adapter that fits in the express card slot? Or do I need a USB-type reader?

In any case, is this a generic sort of item I may find at, say, Office Depot? (I have a 40% off coupon there, good until tomorrow if I get a response here, with "brand name" recommendation by then!) ...or Radio Shack?

Or is this something I need to fetch from an Apple-type retailer? (There's one of those in town, too, and the price for the USB doohickey is $40.)

Advice will be appreciated!

    I've got the SIIG ExpressCard that audiopollution linked and it works beautifully with my MBP.
