    I'm looking at 2-Gig SD cards. The most taxing use for this card will be to store and play back videos in 320x resolution on a Palm TX. My concern is that these videos be played back with no hesitations so the performance speed-wise is important.

    Of course, I am concerned about price, too; the prices I've found range from as low as about $50 to as high as $250--quite a range.

    Here are the cards I'm looking at. Does anyone have advice for me and does anyone have any first-hand experience they can relay to me that might help:

    PNY at $50

    Corsair at $68

    Patriot at $78

    Edge Tech at $81

    Transcend at $85

    Usually, I buy only name-brand stuff. I like the compatibility and reliability Crucial has give me over the last five years; but, the prices of these SD cards from NewEgg are very tempting. Crucial wants about double the above prices for the same size card.

    Look here too.

    Your see there are many types of CompactFlash cards.
    Professional Cards
    Platinum Cards
    CompactFlash Cards

    The Professional Cards only work for some camers. So check to make sure a higher speed card will work for you.

    I know I got me a faster SD card last year for my nikon coolpix and the speed is I think 3 times faster then what was out a year or so before that went I got my camera. Really helps in taking pictures to have a faster card.

    I like the lexar or you can get the Ritz carmera cards too but they are still made by lexar.

    But as you can see there is more then brand and size but also speed and if your going to do video i would think getting the faster speed card you can get that works on your camera would be best.
