Re: 1 GB MicroDrive Write Time Comparison (D1)

Of course, the real issue is not whether the 1gig drive is faster than the 340 but whether it is fast enough . Depending upon camera used, you may very well not be able to shoot faster than the drive can store images, or the drive lag may be well within acceptable tolerances.

I'd be more curious of your (and others') non-scientific impressions of how the drive performs in the camera. That is, do you feel that you're spending too much time waiting for it to write? I'm planning on using such a drive in the Canon D30, so if it doesn't seem fast enough for the D1 that may or may not be indicative of how happy I'd be with the performance, but it would still be interesting to read people's opinions.
