I was looking on Newegg and all I could find was adapters for USB, FireWire and things like that.

I'm a little confused by your post but I will try to help :D

Did you mean "type of" express card (PCMCIA)? Are you looking for something specific?

All of these have potential to be "good" given the right situation.

I use my ExpressCard slots mostly for my eSATA/RAID card. This is much faster then USB2 for large data transfers.

ExpressCard is not the same as PCMCIA or PC Card (CardBus)

That list only applies to the older 16-bit PCMCIA and 32-bit Cardbus adapters.

If you look at the page you linked to in your post, you'll notice that the last revision to the standard was 2001.

Exactly. It's basically external PCIe.

Firewire 800
Sata
SSD's (Apparently)
Wifi
TV Tuners
Memory card readers, possibly memory cards soon aswell
External Graphics cards (Asus XG Station is the only one I know of)
Probably more but thats what I know of

Express card is supposed to be the replacement for the PC Card platform. it is however developed by the same company PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association)

Express card 2.0 (release: Second half of 2008 - early 2009) complies with PCIe 2.0
