Default SANDisk or OEM?

Hi
An OEM CF is obviously cheaper than an equivalent SANDISK. I am wondering the differences between the two in terms of the speed, capacity, image quality, etc. Thanks!
If Sandisk 128 mb is slow, how about other companies's 128 mb?
Thanks!

It's hard to answer not knowing the speed rating on your Sandisk. Does it says x2, x4, x24, etc... If it's just a standard Sandisk then an OEM could actually be faster (or slower). Image quality should be the same sinse it's digital and depends only on your camera. Capacity however depends on how large the card is.

Make sure to try it first though or check the compatibility matrix on the back of the packaging since some CF cards and some camera do not seem to get along...
