Default MagicStor speed fast enough?

I'm thinking of getting either a GS-MAGICSTOR 2.2GB PLUS MicroDrive or the Transcend 2.2GB Compact Flash or even a IBM Hitachi 1Gb for a FUJI FinePix S7000.

Witch would you recomend?

But I know nothing about theyr speeds.
It says that the MacigStor has a transfer rate 3.3-6.5 Mbytes/sec and a media transfer rate of 52.4-99.6 Mbits/sec.

But how does that compare to let's say those Compact flash II 45x or Ultra cards??? Would the Magicstor handle the 30min. video? Will it overheat?

Thanks :roll:

Stick with the IBM or Hitachi drives, the MagicStor 2.2GB are finicky at best, I couldn't recommend them.
