    Well....I bought a Lexar 2GB SD card today. It was on sale for a significantly reduced price.


    I was wondering if anyone here has and uses them and What I should expect quality wise?

    :lmao: that just figures. I put it into the camera and get redy to format it and the batteries die and I have no spares.

    they are great cards, at least for me.

    i tend to use only lexar or sandisc cards as both have great reps.

    perhaps off brands are fine, but i just wait for a sale and buy then.

    I was curious, it seems only natural to ask when a 2GB card only cost me twenty bucks.

    Let us know how that card works out. I've now had 3 SanDisk CF cards fail this last year, I'm ready to switch brands.

    2gb for $20 is ok but not that cheap, they have 8 gig hp cards here for $50

    I think almost any brand name card is as good as the next. They probably all come from the same factory.

    We have 2 Lexar 4 GB x 133 CF cards, and they work great with our Nikon D200. I am actually considering buying 3 more while there is still a rebate on them.

    the lexar wont be fast, but it'll be good, (as i'm sure you probably know). I think on newegg.com though, you can quite often get a 2 gig card for around 20 dollars.
