ExpressCard/34 slot or those multicard readers?

I have a late 2009 17" Macbook Pro and for some reason, on this range they only included a Express Card/34 Slot.

I do some amateur filming and my camera takes SD cards. In Final Cut Pro, I can log and transfer through the camera but seeing it would be useful to have one of these two reader thingymajigs anyways, which ones would you recommend?

I'm not entirely sure what an Express Card does.

I'm pretty sure those multicard readers would work well but I'll be using rather largish cards like 8-32gb cards and knowing how CPU intensive logging and transfering the videos over (core 2 duo processors at full blast and temps reaching 100 degrees basically!), I'm worried about how cheap these readers are and if it might damage my cards/videos.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

The express card slot isn't for memory cards, it's for adding functionality.

Huh??? Adding the functionality to read SD cards is classified as adding functionality in my book. Did you read your own link to wikipedia?

I meant you can't just stick a memory card in it, obviously.

Hey thanks for the advice guys.

Looking at my priorities, I think I shall just get a USB-SD card reader instead.

Thanks!
