    I was wondering if anyone has used this flash card with the EZ-Flash 4 Lite? Are there any slowdowns? etc...

    SanDisk Ultra II microSD cards are high-performance memory cards ideal for mobile device enthusiasts looking for the best performance and quality to store their premium content. This high-capacity 1GB card provides plenty of storage for longer play-lists of music, full-length videos for mobile phones, or viewing hundreds of photos on your microSD-enabled digital device. It features a write speed of 9MB/sec and a read speed of 10MB/sec. It also includes an adapter so you can use this card in your full sized Secure Digital (SD) enabled devices

    Thanks...

    Tests have already been done, it seems as if the ez4 is the bottle neck not the memory card. Faster mem cards made no difference.

    I have 2 and both work perfectly for my pda and EZ4 Lite. I would recommend getting them. It is alsoa bonus that they come with sd adaptors.

    Yep, and benchmarks show regular micro SD cards are generally faster than most mini SD anyway. Be interesting to see if the SC Lite has any similar slowdown issues with micro SD.

    Going by those charts, the standard Sandisk micro-SD has a read speed of about 5.2Mb/S and the Ultra micro-SD has a read speed of about 5.8Mb/S.
    I think it would be hard to notice much of an increase with using a faster card at the moment. Maybe wait for a 150x to really get the benefit (if the cart will allow it)

    I wouldn't trust a site selling 2gb Sandisk Micro SD's seen as though Sandisk doesn't even have them listed on their site.

    you can buy them on ebay too, the seller has a 99% positive feedback on 111086 transactions, so i think he is trustworthy [​IMG]

    Still, if you read the ebay guides you will find out a lot of seller in hong kong sell counterfeit cards but still get good feedback because people don't check them properly before leaving feedback.

    Also don't you think it's a but weird only one seller has them?

    I think the shop linked to earlier must buy from hong kong where most of the counterfeit factories are and sell them on. You would probably get this card and it wold have slow treansfer speeds and the memory would corrupt for no reason. I would stay away.

    found a couple of other UK sellers through froogle. Google seems to like komplett.no. Did searches based on the manufacturers id, as well as just 2gb sandisk micro sd!

    *Not to say they're legit or anything, seeing as sandisk doesn't appear to have em on their website
