I use Samsung cards in my D5100 and they are as good as any other brand. 2 slots is for more capacity and the enthuseast can have one subject on one card and another on the other card so the subjects don't get mixed up. You can switch between the 2 if you so wish.

I use mainly Sandisk cards with a 45mbs-1 transfer rate on them, you have to be careful if you want to shoot at the higher frame rate because if you get a low transfer rated card, as soon as your buffer fills it your fps will reduce to 1 fps or less with a cheapy slow card. The options with the two card slots are pretty cool you can either have its setup to make 2 copies of every photo (i.e. for backup purpose in the field) or you can have it recording RAW on one card and Jpegs on the other card, or you can have it as an overflow so when one card is full it moves onto the next one! Its a really handy feauture I've found!

With regards to the the cards, Premier Inks seem to do good deals on memory cards, including SanDisk ones!!

Hope this helps you a bit, have a good weekend, fingers crossed for the weather!

SanDisk for me too, I have mine set up to use slot 1 first and slot 2 as overflow. Between that and the brilliant battery life I now rarely have to worry about carrying spares.

Have fun.
