These cards are twice as fast as most high speed CF cards and at this price you aren't paying much of a premium for the performance.

The price includes postage and the £10 Google discount but not the 7% Quidco.

The SanDisk Extreme IV line of the Compact Flash cards offer extremely fast read/write speeds of up to 40MB/sec and provides the highest durability, speed, and quality on the market today.

Every SanDisk Extreme IV Compact Flash card comes with Rescue PRO Deluxe so you can recover just about any digital file you have saved with ease.

My first deal, nothing dramatic just a good price on an ultra quick CF card.

I'm not sure how to calculate the Quidco saving because of the Google Checkout discount?
#2
There is no quidco on purchases made through google checkout I believe.... :) Thanks for your first deal post.

Expensive without the £10.00 discount.
Can get one delivered off ebuyer (without £10.00 off!) for £29.10.

Any promotion when you ignore the discount tends to be expensive. :whistling:
Ebuyer don’t stock these cards!

Or if I really wanted get this high speed 2gb and this 1Gb one delivered using google checkout for £27.46.

You’re missing the point here. The Sandisk Extreme IV cards are twice as fast as the high speed card you linked to (266X v 133X) and the 1GB card is a slow card.
It’s like saying don’t buy the Ferrari on special offer but get a Japanese sports car and a Ford Fiesta instead.
I posted this because it’s the best deal that I’ve seen for this card regardless of how competitive it is compared to slower cards.

All the top end cameras still use CF although these have there own buffers and write to that before writing out to the card so it's likely you'll only see the true performance while uploading your pics to your computer.

Also these cards have a great reputation for reliability I know people who have lost data from cheaper cards including Lexar although this could be down to user error I'll not be chancing it. I've used the recovery util that's shipped with the Extreme cards twice now and its well worth the extra.

In the real world you are not going to notice the speed difference between the two cards. Unless you are using them for something like a digital camera you dont need this (and only then if you are saving pictures in burst mode!). The 2Gb card is perfectly fine for streaming video off of and so therefore for the OP's post you are only paying extra for a theoretical speed increase.

For most people these cards are overkill, I agree with you on that. But for people who actually can use the performance this price is the best I’ve seen.
The performance is not theoretical, if you use a Sandisk Firewire card reader you will get very fast transfer rates with this card and a decent SLR will also benefit.

Great for attaching to an IDE-CF interface to make a silent low power laptop with no moving parts ;)

I was wondering if these cards are okay to use in such a setup, although I was thinking desktop rather than laptop. The 40MB sec read/write rates puts them heads and shoulders above the competition for a small premium.

So its a great bargain IF you get a Sandisk Firewire card reader and have firewire input to your PC. And how much extra will this add to the bargain price? an extra £40.00 prehaps?

The Sandisk Firewire card readers are over £40 I think. In context though this is chump change for people who've spent over a grand on an SLR, lenses etc. People spend more than that on a camera bag.
If someone's offering a good deal on a Ferrari do you moan about road tax and petrol prices! It goes with the terrain.

Well I thought it was a good deal. Voted hot anyway.
