For those people who have ROMs/distros that support SDHC.

And who live in the US, of course. :S

I'd be peeved, but then I'm planning on bypassing 4gb entirely and getting a 16gb card biggrin.gif

Same type of deal, but for $17, and not SDHC.

that's a good price - ideal for cacko users as its kernel doesn't and probably never will support SDHC.

Be aware that I tried that exact card in my c1000. After a couple of days it totally corrupted. Reformatting etc had no effect.
The replacement card of the same type did the same thing after another 3 days too.

sounds like a faulty batch, or even fake cards! apparently there's a massive influx of counterfeit components from China, where either an item is totally fake, or, was a test reject which was "salvaged" and sold on black market.

I've got the 4gb Transcend (150x) SD awhile back. Been working great!

I'll prob get an 8gb sdhc ... for my eeepc! wink.gif ... 16gb is still a bit hefty (in price) for now. smile.gif

It was purchased from a reputable dealer though, came in original packaging too.
