Found this deal while on Makezine. It is a 16Gb Sandisk Extreme CF card for $159.99 after manufacture's rebate.

16Gb 3100/3200 Anyone?

I've seen cheap MLC cards in UK now (use froogle.google.co.uk) for just GBP90 (US$185) so it looks like there will be some of us in the UK performing open-heart surgery on their zauruses in the near future.

I shall be even more careful than when I tampered and broke my 6000, which, incidentally is still out for repair.

Any more precise pointer to the MLC card you are talking about?
For the operation, just take extra care of the two brown cables connecting to the screen part and it should be fine.
iamsmith's walkthrough is a very good reference here: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=S...t=0#entry129173


[EDIT]
Oh yea, I spot these two after sorting the price:
http://www.google.co.uk/product_url?q=http...AAA&gl=uk&hl=en
http://www.google.co.uk/product_url?q=http...AAA&gl=uk&hl=en

The card is 16MB/sec, so a bit slower than Extreme III (which is 20MB/sec or 133x), but i don't think the speed difference is very obvious when used on Z. smile.gif

Surprised to see that the card prices have slided down so fast.

I am speculating whether CF cards are now less fashionable so that it's too easy to saturate the market with them and thus force prices down. Most recent/new digicams which need big cards now take SDHC, so less and less people want huge CF cards?

[there are A-Data 16 Gb cards available for @160 usd at tigerdirect

I wonder how they will survive swapping? I guess with 16 gigs the write-levelling will handle swapfiles pretty well? opinions?

any insight on the a-data cards?

Anyway, re the price--possibly the cost of manufacture is lower as a result of new tech?

I personally wouldn't risk wearing out a $160+ card.
