For me, when the 41CX is in my flight bag my card reader always accompanies it due to its size.
I have a 21 card WALL set which will reboot the calc if required and a set of synthetic Extended memory files for transferring the data files into the extended mem section.
I have at home a wand, combined with an HP dot matrix printer for bar codes, the 9114B disc drive and the cassette mass storage. My preference for reloading at home is the cassette drive then the disc drive followed by the card reader and lastly the wand.
In the calc is a Clonix with PPC Rom, CCD, Navigation with a blinky for the infrared printer and for some regression techniques a stat module and a double x mem module. And of course of suite of self written programs that are aviation specific such as altitude temperature corrections, breaks schedules, Great circle data and great circle coord programs as well as others.
I actually have 5 of the card readers working with new silicon tubing pinch rollers and restored dampening couples.
I concur with Allen in that the fixed working examples go for about 150. Again, for sheer portability the card reader beats them all.
