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)

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.
