Default Wat company would be best?

i just looked up prices at B & H for a 512mb card....and i saw mainly $120s

but i saw a sandisk one for 84 dollars......is the price that low because it is a crappy card that is slow and bad quality?
would it make sense to pay 140 for a 40x lexar?

just a couple of questions

thanks in advance

ok.....that seems like the way to go....i'll have to save up a little extra...but it will be worth it to be able to shoot in RAW....and fit around the same amount of shots on this card as my 128 fits Jpegs......
have to get CS now

Vito, Before you make a choice just remember that a 1Gig Hitachi MD is only $179.00 at B&H.
However if you get the Lexar WA it is USB enabled and comes with a recovery program.
