SD Cards

Saying you had an SD card failure is a lot like saying you got a flat  
tire almost -- it happens all the time.  Go to Newegg and read all  
the product reviews and on just about every SD card you will read  
about failures (even *gasp* Sandisk!)..

I think SD cards are more prone to failure because they are relying  
on an outboard controller as opposed to inboard like CF cards.   
Personally I liked CF better but it seems as there will not be a  
choice much longer, SD seems to have won out as the standard.
