Glue an external card reader to the case?

How about this as an option (no time now to see if the .ca site has them):
StarTech BRACKETFDBK Front Bay Bracket Adapter - 3.5 HD to 5.25 at TigerDirect.com

Canada Computers can also order one for you:
Canada Computers | Cases | StarTech 3.5in Hard Drive to 5.25in Front Bay Bracket Adapter (BRACKETFDBK)

Also, post in the B/S forum someone may have one lying around. I had a few come with my cases over the years, but pretty sure I have tossed em out or gave away with the cases they came with.

Yeah I had forgotten about those, which would make it work. Still going to my original build #2 from my other thread, after everything is said and done it comes in about 450$, whereas I need to bring it down by 50-100$

The SG-03 is by far my favorite one, it's cosmetically gorgeous and comes with 2 bays (one of each).

The picture doesn't do it justice ;) Besides, it has room for 2x120mm fans on the front panel... not many matx cases have that kind of airflow.

For what I'm looking for light weight, both of those cases even without the psu are way too heavy for what i want. 10lbs?!

I have a few different ones here laying around Ari. But a couple of them have the power/reset buttons. If you want em let me know.

I know it might be too big and heavy when fully built but I love my Lian Li PC-V354. Tons of room overall and pretty light weight. Oh and its front panel has two USB 3.0 ports, card reader (MS/SD, SDHC), and head phone/mic jacks.
