    i suspect that the 80x is faster but of course MB/dollar the MD is cheaper lah

    but then becareful with it...cos it has movable parts, might spoil if u drop it. though some has said that it can survive normal dropping(from waist height etc)

    do a search? i believe there were at least 3-4 threads talking abt the merits and cons of using MD last year.

    CF is dirt cheap now, why risk using a HDD?

    i think thats bcoz MD were dirt cheap last time compare to CF. Now... CF are much worth the money.

    There's still reason to use MD if you're operating in the >4GB range. The price difference is still very significant, esp if you need a few pieces.

    i'm currently using 3 pieces of the 4GB MD; i would love to replace them with CF, but it would cost me near $2k to do so.

    But i agree that if you're using up to 1GB sizes, the CF makes more sense.
