Default Does brand matter?

I recently acquired a camera that uses SmartMedia which prompted me to start looking at getting more memory cards.

Of course, places like best buy have the big brand names, then in catalogs I've found no name cards for around $12 for 32 MB and on ebay I found some 32 MB cards for $6 each (pack of four for $23 with shipping).

Is there any great difference between the cards? Will a cheap card fail? Do these things fail suddenly, cheap or expensive? I'd hate to discover that my vacation pics had vanished because a card had failed.

Not a direct answer to your post but maybe it will shed some light on your situation.
