    dealextreme also has some micro sd cards last time I checked, and at some fairly good prices.
    Also, you can try meritline.com, I haven't been there in a while, but I remember they had some good prices as well.

    However, DX's memory card price seems to be too low and the photos in their website, the memory cards are fake. Thus, if you do not mind to get the fake one, DX should be your good choice but if you want to get the real one, try other store or you can try to have a look in our store.

    The disadvantages of fake memory card are as followings,
    1) The life of it should be shorter
    2) The stability is worse than the real one
    3) The data in the memory card may be lost without any reason
    4) The shell of the card is bad so it is easily to be broken

    BTW, if the memory card is the Sony memory stick, the situation of the above problems will be more serious.

    It depends on how long you want to wait.

    Play.com - Own Brand 8GB MicroSD card will be on your door step in 5 days.
    DX - maybe 2 months.

    both are about the same price.

    Since the demand of 16GB is still not high, the production costs for 16GB is far more expensive than the mass production products such as 4GB and 8GB.
