Cannot argue with this wisdom.
With K-7, taking the card out is a pain because it does not pop up far enough, and it is hard to get a grip on it to pull it out. K-20 did not have this problem. K-01 has a diddly little hinged metal flap plus rubberized plastic cover, and I am always afraid that one or the other of these covers might break off! These are possible reasons to use the cord, which I have done from time to time, until realizing that it is even than just pulling out the card and sticking it in the reader.

With my cameras, you don't have to remember to replace the card. They won't operate without it! ;>)
It's a bit of a problem if you find that out in the field and the cards are laying at home

A USB 1 or 2 device isn't going to transfer any faster on a USB 3 card than they do on a USB 2 card. If your car can only go 110 mph it isn't going to go any faster than 110 mph on a 3 lane highway then a two lane highway.



The memory can only be written to a finite number of times so in that respect a SD card will wear out even if never removed.
Sure it can, when that 3rd lane is HOV and you are all "alone".
Before, being stuck in a HUB "traffic snarl", only going 20 MPH.

I was referring to maximum transfer rates. Maximum transfer rate for USB 2.0 devices is 480 Mbit/s. They can't transfer data any faster than that even on a USB 3.0 card. Adding another USB 2.0 card would solve a hub bottle neck of USB 2.0 devices just as well. But then again you can have a bottle neck on data bus on the motherboard too.
