Default Best C.F. for the money?

There seems to be a bias toward Lexar C.F. in these threads as compared with Sandisk, although Sandisk Ultra may more or less have the same attributes in terms of warranty. I was wondering where the best buys are (1) in retail chains (2) online.

I did a survey, along with one I am doing on compact cameras here in So. Calif. and found a wide variety of prices. Also, different chains feature different brands in many cases.

Some samples of what I found (I am only going to list C.F. for now)

WallMart: Lexar 256 69.33, Lex128 48.57, Lex64 33.24, Fuji 128 51.48
Costco: Sandisk 256 49.99 A good deal?
Fry's: Lexar 256 69.99,
Circ City: Sandisk Ultra 256 89.99, 128 Ultra 69.99, PNY 256 79.99
Target : didn't see 256; Lexar 128 54.99,
Best Buy: Sandisk 256 79.99, Sand128 59.99, PNY 256 99.99
Sam's Club: SimpleTech 256 49.44 A good deal?

I don't know the speed on any of these, and from looking around here it seems like that info would be really good to have. Some packaging used words like "fast" and other packeges made no mention of speed that I could see. I would have to start all over again to see if there is much info on read/write speed. The SimpleTech on Rob's site appears to be really fast. I don't know if the Sam's Club SimpleTech is the same or not, as they apparently use different controllers in their memory depending upon end-use. :roll:
