    i want to upgrade to an 8 or 16 gig sd card and was looking at e-bay for prices:
    they seem verry cheep and this worrys me a lot. obviously i wouldent buy from a seller unless they had a high rateing so i could trust them, and i definatly wouldent touch an unbrandied make, but what about kingston or sandisk???....
    is there makers i should stay away from and makers you would recomend???
    has anybody had a sd card from ebay and what was the result???
    iv firmly belive you get what you pay for quality wise but also that you can get a better deal if you look around and youse your head :)

    +1 for 7dayshop and play.com

    Amazon can be pretty competitive too. Also try memorybits.co.uk

    I bought a class 6 card from an online computer shop, and it doesn't perform anywhere near promised. So I think it isn't just eBay...

    Also, watch Amazon & Play, as a lot of stuff is sold by third parties, so the FAKE warning still applies... Look for ones "In stock and sold by Amazon.co.uk/Play.com"
