I have always used a USB 2 CF card reader to transfer my RAW images into my computer using CS3..CS5 Bridge. I convert to DNG Adobe file format while doing the transfer.

Now that I have a D800 with its huge files, I am finding that it takes forever to make the transfers/conversions. I just got back from a Nikonians workshop in AZ with over 3,000 frames to transfer. I have been transferring now for 24 hours!

What is the best USB 3 CF card reader and PC adapter available that I could purchase to speed up these operations?

I understand USB 3 is about three times as fast as USB 2 not counting the conversion delays.
