    I printed it out when I ordered; airunz is right, it was only valid on purchases through Oct 9.

    that is another rebate ($30). and it is good for buying from buy.com, amazon.com and others.. check the pdf for details. seems like buy.com has 79.99 but not sure if i can use the MIR. the product code seems mismatch.

    Here's a link to the old rebate:
    http://rebateplace.com/forms/4245.pdf

    This would seem to confirm the existence of both 32x 1GB and non-32x 1GB cards; there are different part numbers and different UPC codes. The buy.com version appears to be the slower one.

    I spent a bit of time on the phone about this Lexar card. Their web site is very misleading, and seems to only reflect one version of a 1Gig SD card, the high speed 32X one. The Buy.com listing only shows 1 card, and the blurb talks about 32x speed. However the part number and photo both suggest a slower SD card. Lexar, after much pressure on the phone, admitted that there were 2 cards. I will make a major fit with both Buy.com (misleading blurb) and Lexar (misleading web site) if the cards I ordered turn out to be slow.

    Here is an e-mail from Lexar sales, and my reply today:

    You still did not answer my question regarding your own web site, which is very
    misleading. There is no indication on the SD card page that you have a slow 1 GB
    card. I for one looked at the grid of cards and concluded that the 256Mb and
    512Mb cards were in 2 speeds, but that the 1 GB was fast only. Based on this
    information, and with the info on the Buy.com page as to card speed, I went
    ahead with my order. Lexar also has a responsibility to the customer, as in
    theory your site is the final definitive source of information on your products.
    So now I have to deal with Buy.com and return the cards and pay
    shipping/handling 2 ways to rectify the problem. Not a good customer experience.
    Maybe I can return the slow 1GB cards to you and you can exchange them for me
    for your 32X cards. Please reply.

    > I have been recently shopping for fast 1GB SD cards. Your brand has a good
    reputation for speed and quality. Browsing your web site on SD cards, you show
    only one 1 GB SD card rated at 32X speed (high speed)[http://www.lexar.com/digfilm/sd_card.html]. You do not
    list any 'standard/slow' 1 GB SD cards, though you do have 2 different 512Meg
    cards, for example.I found this offer from Buy.com:

    seen links on Amazon.com for what appears to be 2 different Lexar 1GB cards, one
    stamped 32X [http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...bosnation0e-20
    and one without [http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...bosnation0e-20.
    I am concerned that your web site is misleading and that I have been fooled
    into what seemed like a good deal at Buy.com on what now will be a slow SD card.
    Can you please clarify/explain? Are you now making 2 different 1GB SD cards?
    What card will I be getting from Buy.com?

    So now look what shows up on Buy.com's website...a $30 rebate on the 32X Lexar 1GB SD card (final price $10 more than the incorrectly listed 'slow' card):

    My buy.com 1GB card arrived today. UPC code on package confirms part number "SD1GB-231", i.e. not the 32x card. I poped it in the Treo and got these:

    VFSMark Results

    DB Import: 353%
    Record Access: 285%
    Resource Access: 276%

    VFSMark: 292

    After sync'ing with my desktop (which added some directories on the card for LauncherX and DocToGo) the VFSMark spec dropped to 225. So I reformatted the SD card and reran and got 294. Immediately rerunning dropped the score to 226, 227, 226, and 225. So the sync had nothing to do with it. Reformat again and VFSMark is back to 294. Rerun and back to 225:

    I'm new to using VFSMark. Is it typical for virgin cards to exhibit significantly higher scores?

    I have found scores to drop after loading the card up on VFSmark

    Good news and bad news....

    Good: my buy.com "standard" card turned out to be faster than my ecost.com "32X" card.
    Bad: my ecost.com "32X" card turned out to be slower than my buy.com "standard" card.

    My "standard" card VFSMark numbers are in post #30, here are my "32X":
