Flashcards.co.nz - Great Service

From recommendations found on Geekzone, I went to Flashcards.co.nz looking for a 2GB Mini-SD card.

Flashcards price for this product was about $5 - $10 more than Trademe prices, and to be able to purchase from a legit, accountable business was definitely worth it, and whats more, I had looked at cheaper Samsung cards, but at the last minute called Flashcards' 0800 number (from my cellphone, and it still worked), and Daniel let me know that the 6265 Nokia doesnt work with the cheaper, faster Samsung cards, and I would need to purchase the Sandisk model. He had that info for me within seconds, so clearly knows his stuff.

Brilliant service from a New Zealand online retailer (e-tailer sounds so cliched...). Thanks Daniel, you will get more business out of me!

I also noticed that you can get 2GB SD Cards (not the mini kind), for $99NZD - gee thats cheap, Im questioning my Sony Digital Camera purchase which replaced an SD card capable Samsung!

I eargerly await the arrival of my card.

The bleeding edge of both CF and SD cards as far as speed goes tend to use proprietry methods that haven't been totally incorporated into the flash card standards. Unless your device maker has allowed for this you may not see the speeds quoted. You may find that your camera gets good results fron Sandisk but not Lexar or vice versa.

Count me in as another very satisfied customer of Flashcards. Good prices, and prompt friendly service. My purchase was a 1Gb RS-MMC card for my Nokia 6630, and a USB2 external card reader. I paid $100 for both, which I thought was a steal.

i once posted a production rating on flashcards.co.nz - it was a silicon ipod cover, and my comment said that you could not charge the ipod inside the cover. my rating was promptly deleted. I asked why and was told that this was because i made no mention of the great service from flashcards.co.nz

The Mini SD arrived the day after I made my order. Works great. I also got a very nice thankyou email from Flashcards for this post. Nice people to deal with.
