1GB SanDisk Ultra II Secure Digital

Link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7503719071

It occurred to me, that I might as well order the memory card I intend to use with my coming digital camera. Since, there's less thought involved in that. At least that's what I thought.

I went to ZipZoomFly.com, where I had a selection for a 60x SD card. It was a brand I didn't know (ATP), but it was cheaper than SanDisk. Unfortunately, they were out of stock. They seemed to be out of stock of the all the purported to be 60x SD cards.

So, I thought about where I would go looking for memory cards....it occurred to me that there wasn't a reason why I shouldn't use eBay. Most of my memory cards have been purchased this way, and I haven't had any bad experiences yet.

:lalala:

So again I looked at price....had settled on PQI...which also purported to be a 60x SD card. 9MB/s is considered 60x, and 10MB/s is 66x.... I tried tracking down retail shops that sold it, product information and product reviews. Didn't find much useful....until I came across a site that sold the 60x PQI SD cards, but under specifications...it had the minimum transfer rates as minimum 6MB/s read and 4.8MB/s write....that's not close to 60x.... SanDisk claims sustained rates of 9MB/s write and 10MB/s read....to make their 60x speed claim. And, the price wasn't that different. <$10.

I have been somewhat hesitant with SanDisk, because I had a SanDisk SD card before...the it wasn't that great in performance. Though it didn't make any claims, and neither did the Lexar that I replaced it with...but the Lexar was much faster than the SanDisk. And, it seemed to be concensus among others online to stay away from SanDisk. Though hopefully they've improved.

I don't think I have the means to test it for speed, unless it is so horrible that it is noticeable. The current SD card using devices have less expensive unknown brands from eBay as well. Except for my other digital camera (Dimage X20)...which I got a PNY SD card, but I haven't do any tests for speed. It just happened to be the cheapest when I ran into Best Buy looking for memory to feed what didn't turn into a disposable digital camera, yet. &#58;&#99;&#114;&#97;&#122;&#121;&#58;

The only thing I had on my list for Digital Camera related acquisitions is a supply of Oxy-Alkaline batteries and some 2500mAH NiMh batteries and a good charger.

I'm probably gonna got with ordering from Thomas-Distributing for the NiMh batteries and charger, while the Oxy-Alkaline/Oxy-Nickel is a toss up between eBay and Amazon.com. I'll probably end up going the eBay route....unless there is some price movement. The eBay seller is cheaper than Amazon.com, but with shipping it is close to the same price. While with Amazon.com, I could combine it with other stuff and get free shipping. And, I have other stuff on my Amazon.com wishlist that I plan to get in the next few months.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
