I had seen the card on the web for $179 but I didn't want to wait to get it. When you're working with only 64MB of memory, waiting for the card in the mail is not worth the hassle. Maybe on some future purchases, when I don't have the same sense of urgency, the NewEgg option wil be more attractive.
BTW, for those who don't read instructions, like me, the Image Rescue software is not on a CD, as I thought. It is on the CF card itself. The retailer warned me to not format the card in the camera before I installed the software. Too many of his customers had come back to the store looking for the software CD, after they wiped the card clean!.
