Default Which brand memory stick is better?


I'm looking to purchase the 128 MB Flash Memory Stick.

I can't decide whether to go with the Sony, Sandisk or Lexar brand.

Is there a difference in quality and performance? Price difference appears to be about $10-15.

Thanks for any replies

It's probably not going to make much difference. I've got a couple of Sony sticks but I think Lexar is an excellent brand, too.

I saw a marked improvement in recording time when I switched to Compact Flash in my D-770...but it accepts PCMCIA cards which take either the MS or CF.

SanDisk hasn't set any speed records lately from what I read when purchasing my CF card.

8) I use both Sony and Lexar sticks. My Belkin reader would not read the Lexar sticks so I got a Lexar reader. My x-drive wouldn't read the Lexar sticks until I formatted them in the camera. Now there is no difference. The clear ones have a light that blinks when accessed-cool.
