Default SD-card performance

Recently I bought a HP Photosmart 635 digital camera. I still use it without memory card, but now I want to buy a 128M SD-card. Steve tested the camera and concluded that it's a bit slow in saving the pictures (Iguess the test was with an SD-card) . I found that my camera saves a picture (best quality) in about 2 seconds using the internal memory.

Now I want to know to which extent depends the slowliness of the memory on the memory card manufacturer, so does it mean seconds if I buy a faster (and I guess more expensive) memory card than a slower one even in this category (I think it's a beginner's camera)? And does the size of the memory count as well?

I saw a 128M Kingston SD-card for a good price but I read somewhere that Kingston's SD-cards are good in reading but slow in writing at least for PDAs. I wonder if it is true also for digital cameras or not? :?:

Default Can you help us Steve?

I would also like this question answered. I own a HP 850 and HP 945 and as Steve has tested both of these cameras I wonder if he/you know whether they can really make a difference in the image save and previewing in these cameras.
I was looking at the new Sandisk UltraII that are claimed to be 64x, do they really work. I must admit to this being my biggest pet hate of both these cameras
