I would look at the MB/S rating on the cards. I know some Ultra 2's are rated at 15 MB/s and some are at 30 MB/s. I have several of the 8gig Ultra 2's @ 30 MB/s. They work just fine.

FWIW, when I bought them, I did an "unoffical test". I did a 3 second burst, RAW, at 8 fps. Got 23 shots off and no slow downs or problems.

Then did the same with video (and I don't shoot video 99-44/100ths of the time). Anyway, started a recording and let it run for 4 minutes straight. Again, no hangs, skips, or glitches.
