Default 2.0 or 1.1

i want to get a card reader, but some of the cheaps are usb 1.1

ok, i have a 50x card, 7.5mbps.

so that woudl be ok at 12mbps.

but, if i have my digital camera in the 2.0 slot and the 1.1 slot, it goes alot slower in the 1.1, and really, the camera only probaly goes out at under 12mbps.

so my question, is there a difference in speed if i aget a usb 1.1 speed reader in comparing to a 2.0 reader?

Look at it this way..

What number is higher? 2.0 right? That pretty much means its better.

Always get the 2.0 one. Trust me, there is a HUGE speed difference. You'll wish you had 2.0 when you're transferring over 100MB of data.

yeah 1.1 is old technology. I find it to be considerably slower so 2.0, like it's already been said, is always the better way to go.
