I'll happily give that a go Ian, however as I see it, on a like for like basis I have always found the read/write speeds of the SD cards better than equivalent CF cards. I generally use Sandisk Extreme III cards, and this was the main reason for my use of SD cards over the CF ones.
I would however be able to see if the Lexar device was faster than using the same CF card in a USB card reader.
On a side note, I used the 16GB Kingston card yesterday (won on the Salon recently) it has a speed of 133x yet I sensed it was taking longer to write to the card than when using the EXIII card. It was a purely subjective thing and I may have been wrong.
