    the thing is though...although kingston is a gret brand and great price...the speeds are substandard to that of U2 and ATP: http://www.kingston.com/digitalmedia...ro.asp?tabs=ds

    Then again You can get a 1gb PNY SD card at www.jr.com for $53 after shipping and $30 rebate.

    But how does the SPEED of the PNY card compare to the kingston (or Sandisk Ultra II) card? With so many apps stored on the card, speed is more important to me than capacity.

    I'm out of my mind. But feel free to leave a message.

    Really? I've been using Buy quite a bit of late as they've had some unbeatable prices. No issues whatsoever...

    I second that. Buy.com is as good or better than Amazon in my opinion. They offer free shipping on return items as well.

    For those interested in VFSMark results, I just got mine from Buy.com this afternoon:

    Using Treo 650

    File Create 870
    File Delete 430
    File Write 47
    File Read 703
    File Seek 907
    DB Export 530
    DB Import 476
    Record Access 822
    Resource Access 752
    VFSMark 615

    While overall speed is good, write speed is only as good as my Lexar 1GB 32X, so it's not a true 65X.

    For comparison purpose, My Lexar 1GB 32X gives:

    File Create 329
    File Delete 294
    File Write 49
    File Read 703
    File Seek 694
    DB Export 220
    DB Import 438
    Record Access 882
    Resource Access 834
    VFSMark 493

    I'm glad some have had luck with Buy.com, but I've sworn never to order from them again. Gave them three different orders over a two year period and they messed up every one. One was a simple gift certificate. In dozens of orders with Amazon I've never had a problem.

    These results are interesting. My VFS mark is just 498 on a Sandisk Extreme III (20mb/sec, 133X), which means the Treo 650 isnt taken much advantage of the extra speed, but looking at the individual results I understand why it "feels" faster, especially taking pictures directly to the SD card - the write speed is much faster.
