I am looking to buy a good SD Card and I think Lexar is a good quality. What speed and class should I look for?

Lexar Professional 133x is a pretty good card.

The 1000D accepts all SD cards but will not take any CF (Compact Flash) cards.

I just upgraded from a regular speed one to a Sandisk Ultra and I didn't notice any speed difference with the camera writing to the card. I did notice a difference when transferring pictures to the computer.

So should I not upgrade to a better card?

What card do you have now? Have you had issues with it?

The biggest advantage of upgrading to a faster card is the ability to download your data quicker. Say you have a 1GB 20x card and a 1GB 100x card. You would expect the 100x card to download 5x faster (assuming that your computer has the hardware to accommodate it). When you get into 16 or 32 GB cards, that is a substantial amount of time saved in downloading. This is what yo have noticed.
Once you have a card that is a not too slow for the camera (the camera cannot write any faster to the card) the only benefit is the download speed.


Equipment list - According to the wife - "how many more lenses do you need? Yet another camera?"  ???

From my experience with class 10 cards, the pny professional cards are the fastest, I have tried many brands, but the pny have taken a considerable amount less time to transfer to the computer, I noticed the camera buffer doesn't fill up as fast also, I have 4 pny professional 8gb cards and a 16gb for my rebel xsi

The 1000D does not seem to have high demands on a memory card and will accept both SD and SDHC cards. I just picked up a 2 pack of 16gb Lexar Platnum II 15MB/S cards (class 6) for $20 from Walmart of all places. More speed than that camera will ever need.
As far as transferring data to your computer - Spending additional $$ for offload speed is not really the best way to spend $$ IMO.
