    Went to compusa last night to get another CF card they had some sales
    $29.99 for 2gb CF Sandisk ExtremeIII, I payed 39.99 for my first card
    $38 for a decent quantaray CPL

    Gonna put the CPL on today and go to Disney World

    I like to do a lot of outdoors shots of their gardens/etc...

    Now for the LULZ
    They had these CF cards, an 8gb Adata for 29.99 as well, I figured "what the hell why not"

    It says "speedy" on the card. and I knew it was a lie... but man I didn't think it would be this bad... Its horrible

    But oh well, I have 13gb's of storage cards now, and the cheapy 8gb will work for me in slow shooting apps (walkaround in a park and normal shit work) i'll use the extremes when shooting at 6.5fps :mamoru:

    I have an AData 2GB as a backup card .... yeah, it's a damn slow card.

    "speedy" is actually their cheapest one. "super" is 80x and "turbo" is 120x-266x in their lineup.
