Default Top compact flash card for elph, Lexar vs. Sandisk ultra?

I have a canon s330 and currently am using a Sandisk CF card but want to upgrade to a 256 mb card. I have read that Lexar and Sandisk make the best cards. The lexar 12x or the Sandisk ultra I am deciding between. Does anyone have any suggestions or info.? :?

Which ever has the better warranty and price. the speed difference will only be seen when you read the card/xfr to your computer. 99% of nonpro digital cameras today have limited camera/card interface xfr speeds. so if your playing in the upper x spd relm you probably won't see a tangible difference because the max xfr rate has already been acquired. your read/xfr speed cf/computer will also depend on the type of reader/port your using: usb 1.1(12Mbit/s max), usb 2.0(480Mbits/s max), firewire400(400Mbits/s max).

you should check out the delkin cards also. lifetime warrantee excellent quality and for the speed demons a high xfr rate in there pro models up to 3.6MB/s. of course thats only a 24x. then transcend has a 30x. even the current crop of pro cameras don't xfr at that rate to a card. but it is great marketing.
