i did a search but the last time this was talked about was 3 years ago. prices have changed so i have some questions. i remember when i was in high school looking at a photo catalog and looking at a 8 gig cf for 2 thousand dollars. that was when 512mb was more than enough. the prices have changed and i just bought a 2gig cf and ive had a 2 gig microdrive since 2004. the cf cost 37 dollars and it was a sandisk ultra II the extreme III was too expensive. the hitachi microdrive cost well over 200 dollars back when i bought it. i just did a search on the micro drive and the same model is selling for 230 bucks. whats the advantage of a microdrive now that cf come with larger storage?
