Nice find if you dont mind rebates. Another good deal are the generic ones at microcenter. I just got a 2 gig for 16$ and think the 1 gig were 10$, up front price. that was a sale price, but normal price is not much more. I think they are still on sale.
As much as I would love to have a kingston over a generic microcenter one (no package, oem but marked microcenter and lifetime warranty), I like the up front price better.
@kenja, I really hope you don’t mind my mention of microcenter. It’s a great deal if they are local (they are to me), but I’m not sure on their shipping… I really didn’t want to crap on your thread. I really posted because I was interested in the speed and you mentioned a diffrence. A while back, I paid a butt load for a fast sony memory stick(sandisk). I feel stupid cause flash memory has dropped so low (including memory sticks). I also got the best card reader I could find (did research to find one that could transfer at full speed as many dont). So the 1 gig I got for a while back (from microcenter for 16$) benchmarked as fast as my memory sticks… I would love to know how a brand one compares if you got one of the kingstons.
I used the free version of sandra, use the removable media test, not the file system test, if you care to compare…
Again, I know I shouldn’t have posted this (benchmarks belong in another forum), I was just really curious if brand ones were faster???
Fyi, if there is a problem with the sandra link, let me know.
