    It seems there is a limit of two, but $11 dollars is outstanding considering that I paid something like $79 for my first less than a year ago. This price makes them almost disposable.

    Not it's a confusing rebate that ends on 9/15/2004, but starts on 9/16/2004. I'm hoping that's an old rebate that ended yesterday.

    On the rebate form it says the rebate is not redeemable if product is purchased through a distributor or other reseller. Wouldn't zipzoomfly.com be considered a reseller?

    btw, on the Kingston site, the price after rebate is $22.99 (almost what zipzoomfly is stating as the price before rebate)

    what do you think?

    Nevermind.. I see the rebate is specific to ZipZoomFly. I'm good at reading the small print but seem to overlook the big bold stuff.

    This is only a 2mb/s SD card, btw. It's last year's tech, which is why they're having to blow it out like that. Cheap for the quantity, but don't expect a lot of speed... Is 2mb/s enough to stream mp3s and video? Seems like it would be marginal.

    Most mp3s (at my encoding of 128) are about 1mb per minute of music. Thus if you can get 2mb/s you get enough for 2 minutes of music in a second. At twice the encoding you'd get 1 minute of music read in a second. I don't think this would be an issue for streaming mp3s. I don't know about video which would use more, but I don't stream video off my card. I basically consider the Treo's resolution/screen size too small to be overly useful. I think a hi-res screen would make it more useful.

    Cards don't actually transfer data at that stated bitrate, though. Latency and other issues matter as well. I know straight by the #s there wouldn't be an issue but there could still be stutters or other issues with playing mp3s on the treo.
