I have a cheap ebay one (couple bucks?) that had 150x written on it. It read/writes my SanDisk Extreme III at 20 MB/s, even when the auction says it is much slower. Originally found out from a slickdeals thread where they did speed tests. Still going strong after a year.

The non 150x one I got is much slower at around 3 MB/s.

I bought a really cheap (about $5 iirc) SIIG usb card reader at Frys Electronics. The MSRP is $17, but it was much cheaper in store. It works really well with sdhc cards.

Normally I get these types of items at Newegg.com, they have a great selection and good reviews.

Trust 61-in-1 USB2 Card Reader CR-1610p reads with 4.5 MB/s and writes with 3.5 MB/s.

Transcend Multi-Card Reader P8 (~15 USD) reads with 18.5 MB/s and writes with 10 MB/s.

Both readers were tested with a 2 GB Kingston microSD card, in "optimize for performance" mode.
