    Just been looking around for some more CF cards 4GB and found Sandisk Exreme III 4GB for 12.89 incl P&P through Amazon. Is this the cheapest genuine around ? I'm always a bit suspect of the one's on ebay, having said that I have bought of them before and they have been fine. Anyone point me in the direction of a cheap reliable seller.

    Cheers.

    If it is through amazon, then it should be genuine.
    If through amazon marketplace, then it might not be.

    How about Picstop or 7 day shop? Both ship from Channel islands and so tend to be cheaper - Picstop are very good (used 7 day too)

    I think you'll find that the ones on Amazon are the older version Extreme III CF cards, Sandisk have recently increased the write speed from 20mb/s to 30mb/s, the ones I've had from Picstop were the newer ones, there's a big 30mb/s written on the front of the cards.
    I think they're only about 15 delivered from Picstop, that's where I've been getting mine from, no probs at all.

    picstop is very good.
    I bought a couple last week for 16.99 each and it got delivered from Jersey within 2/3 days. And as Geoff said, it is the 30mb/sec one.

    I think the ones despatched by Amazon preferred merchant indigo starfish (based in Jersey) are the one listed at 14.99. Not sure who on amazon are selling at 12.89.

    Don't go the Ebay route as the vast majority are fake and you end up with lost/corrupted images. Stick with a recognised dealer, play.com, 7dayshop etc.

    I've used indigo starfish a few times like Cheryl, through amazon and very reliable (Sandisk III). Very fast too. At most three days from Jersey!

    I think they're try to get their own web site off the ground, so maybe try searching for them on their own as well.

    The ones on Amazon were selling for 8.50 but with P&P it comes to 12.89. It's one of the sellers on Amazon not Amazon itself. Sounds too good to be true so I think I'll go Play.com bought from them before as well. Thanks for the input.

    Unless anything has changed, the p&p level on Amazon Marketplace is fixed for a lot of product categories, so they get 4.49 p&p even though they can ship it for

    The Play.com ones are the older ones with the slower write speed, for 2 extra you can get the faster ones from Picstop.
