    They rock, if your camera can take advantage of the speed.

    Crap. Slow, too.

    Yes, good choice. I've been using the 2 GB Ultra II for a while in my dSLR.

    The SanDisk Ultra II comes with a lifetime replacement warranty and if it dies
    they'll try to recover the images for you for free. Pretty reliable ...

    Make sure that your camera supports (makes use of) the faster CF
    cards. I found that my Minolta Dimage A1 did not, so the extra cost
    would have been wasted!

    It still might the cards faster to download to your computer. There's
    little cost difference here between SanDisk CF regular and Ultra II.
