    Getting my new camera for Christmas (IXUS 40), and along with a few other
    things, such as case and spare battery, I will be needing another SD card.
    However, having never used SD with any other device that I own, I have no
    idea which ones would be best to go for. I need something fast and reliable.
    Who would be the best manufacturer to go with? I am looking for cards of at
    least 256MB size, but would prefer 512.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I am a BIG fan of the Lexar brand of memory cards. All of their cards
    have designations of speed - that is transfer speed - I most of the time
    like to get at least 8X. Prices on the cards have been coming down quite a
    lot. Ohh... and for the size, I would stick with the 128 MB or 256 MB, I
    have heard stories about people losing photos because they had transfer
    problems or the camera all of a sudden stopped working because the batteries
    went dead corrupting the files. I know that does not happen too often, but
    if it happens to you..... Well. So I usually will download the photos to
    my computer as soon as possible.

    Anyway, you are getting the camera for Christmas, what did you do, PEEK
    into the box? :)

    SanDisk Ultra II 512 and 1G SD. Very Fast, very reliable. Never had a
    problem with them.

    Know where I can order these from the UK? I have looked around a few places,
    but can't find them. Admittedly, not looked hard, but if you are willing to
    spare me the hassle ;)

  7. I have had good experience of the Silicon Power Ultima range of SD cards.
    For example the Ultima 45X 1GB is available for US$99.00 at

    Has anyone used the high speed ByteStor cards? What are they like for speed
    and reliability?
