    Here, I looked around and compiled this list of items that I want to get:

    Total: $112.0

    RealHotStuff:
    CycloDS : $53
    EZV 3-in-1: $23.50
    Shipping 1: $6.95

    Newegg:
    4GB uSDHC: $22.99
    Shipping 2: $5.58

    I hope I am not getting ripped off by spending too much. I haven't ordered yet, so changes are welcome. Thanks for any input in advance.

    those prices are as good as you are going to get. i'm assuming the 4gb hard-drive is the a-data one that is the best right? Real hot stuff is good as well (u'll get your stuff super super fast!).

    hope you have fun w/ your cyclo!

    You could get the Cyclo and 3n1 cheaper but (IMO)RHS is worth the extra money.
    I don't think you'll find a much better deal on the microSD card. The A-Data takes the cake. In my tests its faster than a 2GB MiJ Kingston and very close to the speed of the 1GB/512MB MiJ Kingston.

    Also when placing your order with RHS use this coupon code, SAVE5, which will save you 5% on your order.

    Thank you all for the advice. Exactly how fast is the shipping for RHS. I hear it is fast.

    Oh, and the uSDHC is a Transcend, but still class-6. The A-data might be better, but it just went up in price.

    Thank you for the prompt reply. So it's about the same shipping as newegg. Sweet. I won't be waiting for 3-4 weeks AFTER I get my memory card to get my flashcard.

    Hey, glad I saw this post. Im also about to get CycloDS and 4 GB SD. I already found Newegg and was looking for the best place to get the Cyclo. Looks like I found it.

    I might not get the EZV. If I don't, that brings it to $88.52, so still a good deal.

    SPLIT:

    The CycloDS just went out of stock. How long is it between restocking, usually? Should I preorder or just buy it when it's in stock?
