I don't understand memory pricing ...

4 Gig Memory Stick Duo for the PSP - $170  ( $42.50/gig)

2 Gig USB2 Flash Drive - about $100 ($50/gig)

1 Gig DDR PC2700 for the laptop - $140

1 Gig  (2 @512mb) PC800-40 RDRAM for the Alienware - $325

The smaller the memory module, the more it costs per gigabyte.

Anyway, I should be set for a while - PSP = 4 gig;  Laptop = 1.2 gig;  Alienware PC 1.5 gig; Flash Drive = 2 gig.

memory speed, memory type, memory reliablity memory form factor all factor into price

any of that sandisk? :)

and eys miniature memory custs more. smaller waffers and such
Nope, none of the above are SanDisk, sorry.

However most of the Compact Flash (4 1gig) and the SD chips I have ARE SanDisk.
This is why I am starting to really like SD memory cards.

1Gb = $20 (1-10x) to $30 (60X)
2Gb = $40 to $60 (60x)
I noticed that the microSD cards are a bit more then that but it is neat that they have that holder thing to place a microSD in a regular SD
As Camstone said, SD cards are the bomb. :)

They're really cheap now and there's been a few 2gb-4gb models coming out as well but the 1gb ones are really cheap and for my camera they let me take a lot of photo's or over an hour of video footage.

I should look for an adaptor to use SD in my Compact Flash Camera.
They are probably out there and easy to find, I just haven't looked yet.
Something to do at work today I guess.
Like Antimon said, there's lots of factors that enter into the price. I've got to start consolidating my memory soon. I'm just getting too many different types and it's a pain. I need to stay with CF for my camera but I'm thinking SD will be the way to go considering nearly everything I now have can use it.

My biggest pain is the MIDI keyboard that uses SmartMedia. Not something you find just any place these days. I really need to get more chips but keep forgetting to look for them.

Talk to Antimon, apparently he is connected with SanDisk.
Oh I'm sure there's still some out there. Just I never think about it when ordering or in a place where I can look. Usually hits me when I think about what would happen if I fried the only one I have.
