  funkey_monkey 19:41 30 Apr 2006


Just wondering if anyone can tel me which SD cards are relable and what is the best price for a 1Gb card?

I'm new to digital photography and have not got much knowledge of these devices.

Thanks in advance.

Any good brand will suffice - most of them are rebadged offerings in any case.

7DayShop does a 1GB SD card for £14.99 plus p and p.

The 256MB card I bought from it last year cost the same...:-(

An idea of how good 7DayShop's prices are can be gleaned from:

What brand is that card?

I have been told that some of the cheaper brands are prone to failure and therefore one of the top brands should only be purchased.

What are the top brands?

Thanks for the replies guys - I appreciate the time you all took to search these items out

Don't be put off by the price - memory cards prices have been dropping continuously for some time.

As I pointed out many are rebranded but it doesn't mean they are inferior. Rebranding other manufacturers' products is very common in the computer hardware and peripherals fields.

Good retailers sell first class products for obvious reasons.

Just today received a 1GB SD card from 7 Day Shop - £14.99 + £3.95 p+p.

Unknown Brand label on one side, engraved with maker's name Toshiba on the other.

The Ebuyer "Viking" ones are also made by Toshiba. I have the 512MB version.
