They are all pretty much the same.... With some you will simply pay more because of the name that's stamped on it...

I buy all of my data cards on ebay. Just make sure it's a reputable seller.

the best card or best price? newegg has one for $34. hard to beat unless you go the ebay route. problem is they don't ship out of the US. had to send it to a friend to relay it to me.

I trust SanDisk and Lexar cards only. Personal pref is SanDisk.

Best price will be via eBay. I got my 2GB Sandisk microSD for about $42.00 and that is including shipping. Also on eBay you won't be paying sales tax in most cases.

Good luck!

I just got a 2 gb Sandisk for $32 after shipping. Though, when I formatted it, it was formatted as a 1 gb

I too prefer sandisk or Kingston to any others. I have been burned too many times before on SD cards for my camera. I'm using a 2GB sandisk on my pearl with no complaints.

I have had very good luck with Crucial memory (many years experience with their memory in my home desktop pc and more recently using their microSD card in my blackberry) -- very easy to find their site: crucial dot com. Nice little US-based company with fast service.

The 2GB Transcend card from Newegg is $27. How could you go wrong? I have one and have not had any issues ... yet. How critical is the data you keep on your card? If it is, it should be backed up anyway.
