hi Wheres the cheapest place to buy sd cards ebay! aldi??
just wonder someone got a link!??
:Cool: Ebay. If you buy at the right time.
Ebuyer (not Ebay) are great for all electronics stuff.
What are they for Ray? some no name ones are terribly unreliable and can and do die very easily.
Doh, just realised you posted in the camera forum so I'm guessing you need the cards for a camera In that case definitely do not buy cheap. The named brands such as lexar and Sandisk are your best bet. go for at least a 60x speed card but if you can afford it get a 100x or even 133x
A good tip, buy two smaller cards rather than one big one, this will make you download the pictures to your hard disk more often. If you buy a big 2gig card and its full with photos and fails that's a lot of pictures to lose. They are better than they used to be but they do fail.
from the "dog 'n' bone" shop oswestry ...well probably!!:Tongue:
Be very careful with the "cheap" cards supposedly named brands, on ebay - many are fraudulent rubbishy copies. Its just not worth it - your camera kit cost a good bit, you need decent cards to keep your precious photos safe before downloading them etc.
Try Digital Depot - they offer fantastic deals on the decent cards - Sandisk Extreme IV , etc. with reliable, fast delivery and a good online store as well as a decent shop if you are in the area. We buy all our porfessional cards from them and have not had a failure yet.
7dayshop.com are always worth a try!
I think Sandisk are offering a 10 year guarantee now. That is good.
Can't remember offhand what memory card my camera takes, but they were not cheap copies, and 7 years of heavy use on, are still (touch wood) going strong. I agree, don't go cheap, go quality ... your photos are irreplacable!
hi thanks for replys folks !!
I have just bought a pack of two 2 gig sd cards from www.mymemory.com for £17.99 and they are Sandisk. Well pleased
you might consider trying shop4memory.ie
super prices on transcend cards, an american card
exchange rate might not help you...:thumb:
7dayshop.com - Online Store
Wouldn't pay too much attention to what name it says on any card either. They are there for folks who want to pay for a name first and card second. My camera uses CF cards and one of the best i have is a 4gb i bought for £7 off eBay....totally unheard of brand but it does the biz and came in at the 'right money'. :thumb:
Digital Depot - Where low prices are just the beginning
