Cheap as Chips?

Postby Flash in the pan on Thu Jul 17, 2008 12:49 pm

I am tempted to buy a SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 4GB + Micromate Reader from Cheap as Chips? $52.90 (delivered)
This seems a good price. Has anyone dealt with them. Is this a good price?

Finally the Micromate Reader is bundled free with it and seems a really good item. Has anyone used them with success?

thanks

The reader is excellent - compact and has not failed me yet...

try here for better prices...use these as a gauge for your local stores...

:up: I got myself the 8GB version of that. Couldn't be happier. Reads fast on your computer too.

Don't skimp on those SD cards. I was using an A-Data SDHC :( only to realise once I got back home, my photos was corrupted and lost ~50 photos. Lucky I was only shooting nearby. I wouldn't want that to happen while I'm on holidays. Not worth the risk.

I bought a 4G CF Extreme III and 1G SD card and micro reader from them recently - I was very happy with pricing, product and communication. :up:

They price matched on items and dropped postage to match competitors. Delivered next day!

cheers

Yeah, but Staticice seems to give much more focused results.

I've used C as C for 4 seperate purchases now, and have been very happy every time. Fast delivery, easy ordering, good prices and 2 free fantail lollies with my latest purchase.

I recommend them.
2x D700, 2x D2h, lenses, speedlights, studio, pelican cases, tripods, monopods, patridges, pear trees etc etc

That is a deal clincher in my books!

I generally just use someone local to get the best price, but may have to look at C as C in future methinks...

I just looked up our dealer price for these. Some of those resellers must be running with little to no margin (or huge bulk pricing).
