    [​IMG] $140 for a 8GB MicroSD?

    No thanks. I wouldn't touch anything with that price tag. And the durability of a piece of paper.

    I think I'll stay away from SDHC for a while. I'll hide in my little corner. [​IMG]

    Yeah, no thanks. Sure it'd be nice to have a card that big, but who can justify $140?

    Well you are paying for something which is integrated as one, rather than buying 4 2GB cards or whatever. It's not a bad entry price; it'll go down very soon (same thing happened for their 4GB cards)

    What's the cheapest price you've seen for a 4GB SDHC?

    Cheapest I've seen is $60.

    [​IMG] Wow!

    That's actually a pretty good price! I might get a 4GB if R4 can read MicroSDHCs in the next FW Update.

    I got the $60 w/shipping ones they had on RealHotStuff, 4GB SDHC. I' pretty happy with it, especially since I ordered on Saturday and got it on Monday afternoon...fucking RealHotStuff are the best. Their service is just mind boggling, but that's off subject. Too bad I don't have my CycloDS yet, or I'd be in heaven [​IMG]

    Edit: oh, and for less than $140 (w/oshipping) you can get a 500GB HDD off of Newegg. Just as a comparison [​IMG]

    Its like everything else SDHC is still pretty new. The prices will come down. Just look how much the sony pro duo memory sticks have come down for the PSP. At one time a 4gb sony stick was well over £100. Now you can pick one up for £30.

    Is the access speed on the new larger capacity MicroSDs comparable to the regular ones? I thought that was an issue of Class?

    Yep. Class 2 is 2.0 MB/s, Class 4 is 4.0 MB/s and Class 6 is 6.0 MB/s.
