Memory Cards

I Have been using memory cards in my camera for years but recently purchased some SD cards for a piece of hardware that plugs into the back of my inbuilt CD/Sat Nav I was amazed that I could transfer the whole of my music collection, most in MP3 format to these 2 cards (Sandisk 8Gb) which cost just over £5 each from amazon.

Re: Memory Cards

And I thought the 16GB SanDisk from Play @ £12.11 (no delivery) was a bargain!

Re: Memory Cards

Amazing how the cost of memory cards has come down, I recall buying some CF Cards several years ago and they were very expensive.
If the cost gets any lower we might as well say goodbye to the hard drive and use flash memory

Re: Memory Cards

How much would a reliable 2TB flash card cost?

Re: Memory Cards

I'm waiting for the day that decent sized Flash SSD laptop drives become more affordable, although I won't have to wait too long as the prices are still falling quite quickly.
