Price Drops for Media Cards

Discussion in 'Through-the-Lens Club' started by General Sherman, Sep 28, 2004.

  1. It looks like compact flash card prices are falling and not just at Wally World.
    I see 1GB SanDisc Ultra II for about $95 and 1GB Type I for $79.
    512MB cards are under $50 and about $10 more for the Type II.

    It was not that long ago I paid $50 for a 256MB card.

    Got a Lexar 80x 512MB for $75 on sale at Fry's this weekend. Didn't realize what a great deal that was, going back today to see if they are still on sale.

    Am told that Lexar 80x is 12MB/sec. and Sandisk Ultra II is 9 write/ 10 read.

    You can do better with a Sandisk Ultra II 1G for $95 shipped from Amazon and others.

    I misread the first post. Thought it was $95 for 512MB. Thanks for the heads up.

    Hey all,
    just came across this at

    79.99 for Lexar 80x Professional CF after $30 mail in rebate.

    I hate mail in rebates, but this is a pretty good deal.

    Here's copy from the rebate coupon:

    Valid only at,,,,,,,,,, Insight Direct, PC Mall, PC Mall Gov, Mac Mall, Club Mac, J&R Online, eCost, Elinux, Dartek, Dell, Global Computer Supply and CCITI on the following product UPC code(s): $20 - 512MB Professional 80X CompactFlash Card CF512-80-380 - UPC: 650590110421 $30 - 1GB Professional 80X CompactFlash Card CF1GB-80-380 - UPC: 650590110438 $40 - 2GB Professional 80X CompactFlash Card CF2GB-80-380 - UPC: 650590110445

    So, if you can find a better price from one of these other places, you can get it there too!
