Default Best CF card brands?

I am researched out. I am going to get the A70 *ducking from anyone who hates it*, so I need to get a CFI card. I am researched out. Which cards have the best perfomance?

How about card readers and batteries? I'm looking at those forums too. I'm about to go blind. :shock:

I have yet to get a cf card and will likely go for a 256 mb one Sandisk is among the brands under consideration.

I today bought a belkin card reader (UK Punds 20.00 app 30 US$/Euros) it included Ulead Photo Express software.

Battery charger I'm going to go for the top of the range Maha charger as reviewed on this site - a bit more , well quite a bit more, than I was going to spend but heck it appears to be about the best .

I'm really pleased you've come to a decision, I had no problem getting mine replaced today (it died last weekend after 8 days of ownership)

also recommend lexar for CF cards and Maha/Powerex is the way to go with chargers and batteries

i LAST NIGHT ORDERED A Viking 256mb card on amazon as it seemed very good value and user reviews seemed fine too.

Am today going to order the Maha charge and 8 2000 rated batteries
