    I promise I've searched and read for hours.

    I dont even know how big a card I'll need. I assume only pics and vids take up much room, and I can always empty the card as I go.

    I want to use On Guard (or similar) backup to card.

    I read that 4GB cards have more issues than smaller ones...but I'm tempted to just try the Transend 4GB 150x and hope.

    Is there a 2GB (or even 1GB) card thats proven, fast and stable? I've never even used extra memory on my 600, but I want to get the most out of my 700p.

    Isn't there a card out there that I cant go wrong with to start? Prefer 2GB, but I'm not even sure I need that much. If there's a good fast 1GB card that is a consensus winner, I'll start with that and move up if needed. Transend (cheaper) and SanDisc ultra II (faster write speed) are ones I see a lot here.

    ...and while we're at it, which is the speed of getting stuff from phone to card? Is that read or write? I care less how long it takes to go a full backup than I do how long till I can shoot my next pic.

    I don't care about spending a few extra bucks as long as its worth it.

    Be gentle, I'm a 700 virgin, but isn't there a 1GB card out there with good feedback from you guys? I'd settle for that, I'm not that much a power user and have no clue whwn I would wish I had more space. It will be a LONG time before I will care at all (if ever) about games and movies.

    Thanks for the patience.

    When I searched before,
    I think most agreed the Transend 150X is a top performer.

    If you want instant, no hassle card, Stay under 2GB.
    Most, if not all 4GB cards tend to run slower because of having to format them FAT32.
    There's a way to speed them up, but they still will be slower than a 2GB or smaller Formatted Fat16 (Fat)

    I'm using a 2GB Speedy SD by far so good.
    VZW 700p, which could quite possibly be thrown out the window if it doesn't stop being a pain in the booty.

    I like my PQI 4GB (I think it's 150x). I play video from it and it's pretty good.

    Sprint Treo 755p (previously Sprint Treo 700p, Sprint i500, Sprint i330 [yuk], Sprint i300, Sprint StarTac, Verizon StarTac)
    Mac 12" 1.5 GHz PowerBook (Constantly tethered to my Treo)

    A (good) way to get a card is to go to and search for Transcend SD cards. Get the one that seems to be the most bang for the buck at the time. I bought a 2gb for around $40.00 a while ago and it's working great.

    Another good place to look is
    Late '08 MacBook Pro, 2.53 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 500 GB HD 7200; Mid 2011 MacBook Air 11" 1.6GHz, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD; 32GB iPhone 4; 32GB WiFi iPad 2 (White); Apple TV; Nikon D300; AND (Hopefully) a 16GB HP Touchpad from the fire sale! TWITTER: @RobT43

    $19.99 after rebate at 34.99 before.

    I use it and it works very well. Plus, free shipping. Good until 11/03/06

    Good luck.

    At this point I am probably being superstitiious, but I have had my share prior troubles in various Palm devices (now have a T600) wth various brands of SD cards. I am sure many are ok, but I, personally, would never use anything except Panasonic (currently have a 1 GB). They are a bit more expensive, but they are stable and fast.

    I have used a 4GB Transcend 150X card for the past three and a half months with my 700p and have had zero problems with it.

    I have also had good luck with my older (and smaller) SanDisk cards in both my 700p and other devices.

    Based on my experiences with them, I'd say both are a good choice.
