I was given as a gift this past year a Palm TX. I like it, and I want to use it more fully. I have the Mobil Travel Guide program which gives you map-quest type directions live and on the go, but each quarter of the US is almost 500Mg. To put it all on one card would require me to get a 2GB SD card. I figure that I can drop some mp3s on my old 1GB card, after formatting it.
I’ve noticed that there are many different SD cards available and that some are cheaper than others. Palm has their own brand and I know there is ‘San Disk’, both of which I know will work. On line, I have found other and cheaper brands, like ‘Super Talent’ and ‘A-Data’. Even ‘San Disk’ has two different 2GB models: the ‘Standard SD’ and the ‘Ultra II SD’. Assuming that any SD card that fits my palm will work, what really are the differences between these products? Is the speed difference noticeable, or is this another way to gouge the consumer, like buying ‘under-coating’ for a car…?
