I've got an old CF reader that is taking 3 hours to copy 11 gigs of Canon 5D files to a hard drive. Unacceptable. Can anyone move me into the 21st century with a recommendation for the fastest reader out there?

You are probably dealing with a USB 1.0 transfer speed. I have solid Lexar reader, that works well. It is USB 2.0. It is a dual slot (CF and SD) which is perfect for my needs (CF for my Canon 7D cards, SD for my Zoom H4N cards). But I now see that they make the same reader in USB 3.0 which is quite a bit faster.
