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.

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.
Play.com do the 4GB Extreme III for £14.99 delivered.
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.
