    digicam pics is not the priority worry then

    at normal temp I expect it to be ok
    yes kingston is OK for singapore temperature.
    I am wondering probably if I want to buy kingston I will buy in china during winter time so immediately on the spot if not good can go to shop and exchange. No chance to test low temperature in singapore.
    Anyway, I take my camera when I travel, so I need something that cover wide temperature range.

    Selling at $359.

    Bad deal. The Kingston Ultimate II 266x(2x of Elite Pro) 4GB is retailing for $80 or so at SLS, particulary Best Bargain
    You already can get a 32GB CF(forgot brand) for that stated amount.

    Haha true, unfortunately i went for 4GB card since i wanted less hassle

    PS: Yup, i use Kingston... since prior to my dSLR, my PnS was also using a Kingston Elite Pro SD and it gave me no problems at all
    Haha, dunno why people prefer Sandisk, but i got one 1GB sandisk anyway which was thrown into my camera deal

    Kingston and Transcend. Kinda pointless paying amost 2x for a Sandisk that offers less than 2x performance increase.

    I use both Kingston and Sandisk. I'm a price-sensitive consumer, so the cheapest card tends to get my attention.

    Kingston.
    SanDisk was more expensive (correct me if my info is not up to date.)

    Still haven't encountered a need to use CF with high throughput.
    I never needed to take continuous shoots.
    An ordinary CF is enough for me, as long as its reliable.

    You gonna grab all the cards at COMEX then sell them here?

    Pretty much same reason for me... cos when I got my dSLR, it came with a free Sandisk Ultra II card. After using for a long time, had no problems... besides I trust the brand more in terms of reliability and they give lifetime warranty. I feel very 'safe' using Sandisk... more than other cards... maybe it's just a psychological thing but this is what I feel about this brand... also read a lot of positive reviews on it.

    Later I 'upgraded' to Extreme III and found it to be significantly faster than Ultra II so I've stuck to this ever since. My next card will be Sandisk Extreme III too... find no need for the more expensive Extreme IV, etc.

    I have been using SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 6 for the last 8 months and i feel that it is faster then the Lexar Platinum II 60x especially when i'm transferring the pictures
    from the SD card into my laptop.

    I'll vouch for the brand that survives unscathed through the Goat's digestive system.
