CF card brand reliability?

hey everyone.

so...this year i went from a d70 to a d300...and haven't upgraded my memory capacity yet. i'm mainly a student (art education, w/ previous degree in commercial photography), but i do pro work on the side when time permits. i have a wedding at the end of the month, and need more cards.

i'm looking for decent memory cards, but i'm not looking to spend so much. i mean...i will if i have to. my current cards are sandisk extreme III and lexar pro.

what's the reliability of say, kingston?

i ask because their cards are half the price of the others (8gb for $30), and that seems pretty enticing. it seems that i shoot in the neighborhood of 10-12k images a year. are they going to hold up, or is there enough concern to shell out and get my usual sandisks?

don't get into ethics or whatever with me, and don't give the cop out response of "you get what you pay for"...just tell me about reliability.
