    I need a memory card right away...and I guess I might as well belly up and go the max with an 8gb card.

    I think Newegg has the Transcend 8gb SDHC card for $69.99 or something close now. Does anyone know of a better deal than that out there now?

    Hey guys...just found this auction on eBay for a Patriot 8g card, and the sellers states that he bought it for his Treo but found that it wouldn't work. He says that he learned that the Treo accepts SD cards but not SDHC cards...what's up with that?http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...1530&rd=1&rd=1

    I purchased my Transcend 8g SDHC card about 3 months ago (sealed in package with lifetime warranty) through ebay and have had no issues and it works flawless! They key to ebay is to research the seller, his feedback (how many negatives vs positives), and weather the item is new or used. I myself sell on ebay (for over 3 years now) and that particular site is great if you know how to search. And I only paid $57.00 (including shipping) for my 8g Transcend card.

    I'm not trying to bash eBay and I know there are a lot of you reputable sellers on there. It's just the few horror stories I've heard have been enough to scare me off. I'm a freak about looking for deals and saving money, so one bad transaction would send me into a tailspin, even if it was only a small loss...

    My VFSMark gives me a 537 on my transcend 8GB (not class 6).. So im not sure how class 6 is better, or what exactly is better about it?

    Class 6 have higher write speeds. Class 2 only gives you 11 to 16 %. The faster the write speed, the faster you transfer your big files (mp3, avi) to your card. This should perform better than Transcend 4 gig sd card.

    First time poster, long time reader.

    I just want to thank everybody on this forum for all the good information. I have a cingular branded Treo650 that I finally hacked (after months of reading and building up the courage).

    After the hack I bought a Transcend 8gb class 2 and was a little disappointed with the speed of it. So I took a chance and bought a Transcend 8gb Class 6. WOW! Here are my VFS results.

    __________Fat16(128mb card)___Fat32(8gbClass2)_____ Fat32(8gbClass6)
    File create_____158%________________42%__________________639%
    File delete_____ 144%________________16%__________________393%
    File write_______20%_________________9%__________________172%
    File read_______509%________________682%_________________736%
    File seek_______737%________________2950%________________2950%
    DB export_______72%________________23%__________________451%
    DB Import_______462%_______________489%_________________552%
    Record access___786%_______________1034%_______________1096%
    Resource access_711%_______________1010%_______________1066%

    VFSMark________399_________________694__________________886

    I am very pleased! Thank you, thank you, thank you for everyone that shares their knowledge!!!!!

    Just for kicks I overclocked to 507 with the class 6 and got the following results
    626%
    475%
    168%
    987%
    3933%
    371%
    681%
    1508%
