Does anyone have access to test these locally? They are reported as a hair slower than the Ultra II's, but still faster than the EX1/3 USB bus so overcranking to 40 should still be fine.

They are really about the same price as the Ultra II 16GB cards ($65), but these VideoHD cards have a $30 rebate each, or $70 rebate for every two, which drops the price to $30 each. The only limitation listed on the rebate form is maximum of two cards per form!

It is too early for a Sticky... however, it would be extremely helpful to everyone if the original poster (Brian Rhodes) would update the initial post to reflect a summary of the latest findings as we go along.
Here's the deal: we need a concise summary of this entire thread in article format that we can add to the Articles section of the site... something we can use as a definitive reference... and then I'll add a link to that article from this forum, as a sticky.

Note -- I'm not looking for anything elsewhere on the web, but an original piece that we can host *right here* on DV Info Net, with photos, etc. If somebody is willing to take this on and put it together, I'll find a way to make it worth their time somehow. Thanks in advance,

I can get it done over the weekend.
Is this soon enough?

Chris, I'd be willing to take a stab at it, since I'm moving in this direction. However, rather than focus on what doesn't work, I'd rather focus on what does work.

Does that make sense?

Actually I think it's equally important to state what was tested and did not work.

Otherwise people could *assume* that certain combos would work while they don't, or don't work reliably enough.

Jay, since my schedule does not permit until later this week, please go ahead with this summary.
Thanks

Thanks fellows, whether it's one article co-authored, or two or more separate articles, I'm all for whatever it takes to boil this into something easily readable. I think there's more than enough solid info within this thread, and the challenge will be how to distill it down to a solid, workable article that's not too long or too short. I agree that it should focus primarily on what works (with perhaps a side note or two listing incompatible cards and readers).

Chris, Steve, Brian...

In all fairness, Brian should have first right of refusal in doing this, it was his idea.

Insfar as schedules are concerned, it's not like I could bang this out in a week. Therefore, Steve, by your posting first, you're second in line.

I came in third!

OK cool.
Brian, if you're up for it, Jay and I can offer support by looking over your info and possibly assist with the work?

A group effort sounds like a winner, and a spreadsheet is a great idea Brian!

By the way I've merged several threads together:

"Lexar SXS cards, where to buy in the UK?"
started by Paul Kellett, 30 replies and 1,550 views

"FAST SDHC Memory for the EX1"
started by Steven Thomas, 50 replies and 3,000 views

"Cards that will & will not work with EX1 & EX3"
started by Brian Rhodes, 460 replies and 20,300 views

I think I'm still missing the one that first kicked off the idea, was it from Alister Chapman? Anyway, Brian's thread was already ginormous at 460 posts, so I figured another 80 wouldn't make much of a difference in the length -- a long thread is a long thread -- just wanted to keep everything under one roof to make things a little easier to research.

New title is "SDHC substitute for SxS cards" -- hopefully it gets the point across,

Thanks Chris.
Yes, it was Alister who first mentioned the SDHC card / Kensington expresscard adaptor.
I'm not sure what thread this post is located.
