Couple of questions.

How many are you using?

How many gb?

What is the best price you have gotten yours from?

I have not gotten one yet so I was just wondering. Thanks

I just bought my first one yesterday.

It is 1 gb

Paid $9 - over priced, but all I could find in my small town

Don't yet know exactly how I want to use it/them when I start buying them.

Why didn't you buy from Amazon or some other store online?

I already had this, so I'm using this.


But thinking of buying this one.

Gee, I think I'll bring mine back right now and go to Kmart. Didn't know there would be that big of a difference in prices.
Thanks for the posts everyone.

I have one of 2 GB.  I am keeping my IRS pubs on it.  I got it at Best Buy around fathers' day when they were having their "we'll sell you this real cheap in the hopes you come buy something much more expensive" sale.

I just ordered this one...you can never have too much memory...unless your device wont access it. :) I plan on adding some pictures and mp3s later on down the line. I don't like audio books but I might buy one some day. It could happen

I read that someone was using 16 GB in Amazon board.
That could be true but:

I'm glad to see that somebody else sprung for the 16 gig.  I too read that others were using them on the Amazon boards.  Of course, a year ago when they wrote those specs, a 4 gig cost $100 and was cutting edge.

I also saw that someone already had 6 GB of files in SD card and there was no problem at all.
