    $49.99 after rebate at Buy.com. I though $65 was cheap, how low can they go?

    Trying to decide if i should cancel my buy.com order for a Sandisk 1 GB SD card- $66 but with no rebate. Its on order right now, so it hasnt shipped yet.

    I hate waiting for rebates and hoping they'll come at some point.

    Is this a high speed 32x card? According to Lexar's web site the part number for the 1 GB High Speed 32X SD Card is SD1GB-32-231. The link above states the part number to be SD1GB-231.

    It's probably not the high speed card that's going for such a great price.
    Million Dollar Bills, anyone?

    I saw that as well, that is why I went to Lexar's site to see if I could verify that it was the 32x card. There is a major speed difference in the two cards. The 32x card has a sustained write speed of 4.8 MB per second while the standard card only does 150 KB per second.

    Looks that way to me.

    Hmmm...the Lexar.com page only mentions a 32x speed 1GB card.

    However, when I looked on Amazon, they are offering two different versions of these cards that look different. The one with part # SD1GB-32-231 has a "32x" logo on the label and the other one, part # SD1GB-231, does not.

    I would not bet on the ones without 32x on the label running at 32x.

    $49.99 is still a great deal either way

    Looking on Lexar's web site I cannot find a reference to the Mfg Part# SD1GB-231. However, if I Google "SD1GB-231" I find all kinds of hits stating that there is a 1 GB SD card with the 150 KB per second data transfer rates. I really want a 1 GB card but I also want a fast card...

    also there is a 5% coupon

    not much but i guess it adds up!

    Sounds fishy to me...

    Also if you look at the rebate. the rebate has the following PCN
    $30 - 1GB Secure Digital - SD1GB-231 - UPC: 650590116751
    This looks like not a 32x card PCN SD1GB-32-231.

    What's odd is that if you hit the Amazon site and go to the page for each of the 2 (apparently different) SD cards, and scroll down to see the manufacturers product description, they both seem to reflect the higher data rate. Still will need to see how the card performs (I dove in and ordered one).

    Even though I'll be without a device needing an SD card until the 650 comes out (sold my 600 today), i think i'll just drop the money on the SD card, i dont see it going less than $49.95 anytime soon

    FWIW, just sent this e-mail to Lexar sales (and of course kept web pages from Lexar's site):

    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:

    http://www.buy.com/retail/product.as...30&dcaid=17073


    for your 1GB card with a rebate, and just ordered it. Since then, I have 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?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    I did a couple of Google search on SD1GB-231 and they are saying "Minimum sustained write speed of 4.8 Mbps". It is strange that Lexar's web site doesn't mention anything about the standard (ie: non 32X) 1GB card.

    Very misleading.....even Amazon is showing a non 32X 1GB card but the product description is referring to highspeed. Could it be that Lexar's 1GB standard is rebranded from Panasonic which is already highspeed? I heard they rebrand both Panasonic (if made in Japan) and Sandisk (if made in USA).

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...bosnation0e-20

    Other sites stating 4.8 Mbps write speed.

    The difference in price be/w the 32X and standard wasn't much (if you don't include the rebate). Since Sandisk came out with their Ultra highspeed, Lexar had to come out with a highspeed of their version. Could it be that Lexar's standard speed was already highspeed (since they rebrand some Panasonic cards) and just added the label 32X?
