    £140 for a mircodrive, bull....!

    you can pick up 512mb ultra2 CF cards for less than £20 on my memory and 1gb ones practically everywhere for close to £40,


    the general consensus is thar CF is better as well

    Firstly it not bull...., Click here or here for proof! Yes after doing further searches they're available much cheaper elsewhere (I only did a quick search on Amazon at the time of posting). £39.99 for a "1GB IBM Microdrive with PCMCIA card adapter" is a fairly good price though. As to CF being better I totally agree. I wasn't singing the praises of "Microdrives". I've got 1 x XD card & 1x CF card in my FujiFilm Finepix S7000. I bought my CF card from [COLOR=Blue]www.mymemory.co.uk[/COLOR] as well.
