    I have the Kingston 8 gig and like it. I also have the 4 gig version as well. Both are fast enough, but i dont have a SanDisk to compare with.

    SanDisk or go home
    skip the UV filter
    Belkin makes a good reader for like 15 bucks on amazon or even at best Buy

    i just grabbed a $10-15 sandisk cf reader at best buy. i have several different cf cards from cheap no name shit to a sandisk xtreme iii. the cheapo no name brand shit is noticeably slower, but the ultra ii seems just as fast as the xtreme iii at least in my 30d. :dunno:
