AData 512Mb SD cards... Any reviews, experiences, etc?

    looking at getting 1 or 2 of these for my Zire 31 PDA to use as an MP3
    player (lot cheaper than buying an IPOD or MP3 player, which I was planning
    to do until I realised that my Zire 31 can be used as an MP3 player)

    Google searches for reviews of AData products are generally fair to good,
    and the prices for their SD cards are a better than the brand name SD cards
    on PriceSpy...

    Any one have any experiences, reviews, good and/or bad???

    BTW Anyone know why there is such a huge price difference between brands for
    SD cards?
    Pricespy shows there can be as much as $40 - $50 difference for various
    brands, then there's the retailer differences to be added in as well....
    I'm looking at Buying from Ascent Technology (in Wellington) as they have
    the best price in my area (according to pricespy anyway...)

    Another BTW...
    Has Pricespy been sold to Super Cheap Computers or something?

    No physical address for pickup... (not looking to buy online)

    And for $7 - $9 more to be able to pickup the goods when paying for them
    suits me more especially when Ascent Technology is 5 minutes walk away from
    my home...

    I second that. Guys at work here use flashcards.co.nz as well. Very
    competitive prices, great service and excellent delivery. I ordered an
    SD card late afternoon, then received it the next day - I live in Kapiti.

    You could say that flashcards.co.nz are the "Ascent Technology" of the
    flashcard resellers.
