SD memory

  herc182 12:38 23 Jul 2004

Dear all,

My girlfriend is currently in the USA working and will be coming back soon. In order to take advantage, i would like her to buy me a SD memory card (say 256-512mb memory). where is the best/cheapest place to get it online? and is there a problem with getting cheap memory like this (i.e. is it liable to corrupt easier etc...)
(The memory card is for my PDA)

A 256MB SD card will cost £29 from ebuyer click here. You can find a lot of them there, different makers and different capacity. Just bought a Viking brand 256MB from them and it works fine with my Pentax Optio S4i.

Another place to look is valuemedia click here.

Maybe you could spend more on a Scandisk Ultra II SD card which is fater than normal SD card. Saw info about this, but not used any Ultra II yet, too expensive.

Some of my US contacts use click here for many IT related products and they are happy with it.

If you go with big name like Sandisk, you will not go too wrong.

I am sure that SD cards, like most purchases made abroad, will have to be 'declared' on arrival on UK shores, and that will add some extra costs on a 'bargain' purchase made overseas. If you intend to make a purchase here in the UK, try a good price comparison site like click here (select UK) or click here (Run by I hope this helps.
