I bought one a few days ago. Arrived within 2 days which was great. Can't beleive it was 16GB for just £17.99. Gives me nearly four hours of recording time on my 720P HD camcorder which is great and will take around 3,000 9MP photos.
I got 2 of these for my SLR so I can stick with using RAW mode for holiday. At 15-18mb a shot, each card lets me take 900-1000 photos.
Based on actual file size from my TZ7, the card will take around 2600 JPG photos at 10Mpx (6mb each).
One bad point is that the PNY sticker was mis-aligned on both my cards. I ended up with the cards being a little awkward to get out of my SLR as they would not pop out when ejected. This was down to the sticker not sitting in the recess. Cured in my case by removing the labels.
