Looking for input from anybody with some knowledge on Crucial Compact Flash cards. Are they any good? Slow or Fast? They have a good deal on there web site. $30.99 each (128 MB)if you buy 2 cards, free fed ex shipping.

It's not the 'need for speed' that's important it's whether or not its speed and cost, translates to a benefit in your particular camera. There's plenty to read here already on this. Why not buy one at this price, try it, and if you're happy go back for 2 more?

They're pretty slow, but that may not matter in practice. The company (and presumably the reliability) is first rate. And, of course, they're cheap!

I e-mailed them. All of their CF's are 8x. I live in the same town with Micron. First class outfit. That speed will be faster than some and much slower than some. Would expect them to do much better than that in the future.
