    I'm finally ordering my new cell phone tonight, the Moto KRZR K1 from Cingular. It has the ability to play music from its expandable Micro SD card slot and i'd like to utilize this feature. I don't know anything about Micro SDs or any of the little flash cards for that matter.


    Could you please tell me what brands are good and which i should stay away from? I did a Froogle search for Micro SD 1GB cards and Kingston's Micro Digital Secure card came up for about $6, i thought the price would be a bit more. Is this a good deal? If not could someone please point me a good direction for finding a cheap but reliable card?


    Thanks. (By the way, if you click the froogle search link it takes you to the search so you don't have to type anything ;) )

    I just bought a 512 MicroSD card from Newegg for something like $7.99.

    It's a little more than the price you quoted but I trust newegg so I'm willing to pay a little more.

    I'm still bowled over whenever I see a MicroSD card, my phone (ROKR) and Nintendo DS M3 adapter both take them. Currently using 2 1gb cards. Both Toshiba's, about £15 each here. They seem more compatible across the board than SD cards so I don't think branding matters much.

    MicroSD cards (especially 1GB) can be had for FREE after rebates. 2GB ones are about $38 and dropping in price like its hot. So the price of $6 seems about right. I purchased the Kingston MicroSD from Newegg only 4 months ago for $33!!

    That is quite incredible considering here in Canada Future Shop and Best Buy etc charge about $30 for a 1GB card and sometimes up to $70 for a 2GB card.

    The odd thing is that in larger retailers such as Best Buy and Circuit City (I looked on both companies' sites), they do not list these same incredible deals as are seen on many smaller internet-only stores and larger ones like Amazon, Buy.com, or New Egg. Just today 1GB cards listed for no lower than $30-40 on BB and CC, whereas they were obviously much cheaper on these sites...

    I guess the general joe schmoes they think will buy memory cards will go with name recognition and convenience and not shop around? I guess if they can manage to make a decent profit they're doing something right...
