Re: Yeah, but that $36 is from a no-name brand...

Thanks for the response.

Guess it boils down to being a choice based on individual tolerances. I suspect most brands will work just fine most, if not all, the time. Just that reliability is important for some events and or trips.

Thanks again.

Hi JoeJack, Duracell isn't exactly an unknown name. How long have you owned these? Great price if they are reliable. I've always used Sandisk but the price on these is tempting.


Unfortunately I have not owned it for very long so I can't comment on reliability. However, for the past two years I've (well, I should be honest, my wife takes most of the pictures) been using "adata" SD cards (like this: ) in both the D300s and a Canon HD camcorder. Not a single hiccup in using four of those off-brand cards accumlating several hundred gigs worth of data. Honestly, the only card problem I've ever experienced was with a Sony memory stick many years ago. I figure eventually I'll run into a problem but it seems more likely to be caused simply by bad luck than offbrand hardware. And in the D300s you can use an SD card in the second slot and write JPEGs to it just in case.
