In fact i've got rid of all my slower cards now including 100x cards and just use extreme3 x 2GB .
Good value if you don't need speed , but i'm scepical about putting all my eggs in one basket in case of card failure (and it's happened) so i use a few more smaller cards .
I'd tend to agree with you Bob. These cards really are a bargain price, but I'd be unhappy using them for normal use as speed is an issue for me, especially when it comes to read/download speeds, and the sort of write speeds you are quoting for standard cards on the Fuji would be unacceptable for me. I tend to use the Extreme III cards all the time now, though I realise the price differential is significant.
At the moment with around 8mb Raw files, I'm getting around 120ish exp from a 1GB card. I would very rarely need 8x this, unless away from home for extended periods without the ability to download and free up space. I think I'd sooner have several smaller cards.
