I've had good luck with those and also Transcend. When I got an XSi a few months ago I was happy with how those cards handled RAW files and saw no need to buy the most expensive cards.

Same here. If you are taking a lot of pics at rapid speed, the III moves the pics from the camera memory to the card more quickly freeing up space for new pics. Otherwise, you could get the dreaded BUSY warning.

I have both a Sandisk Extreme III and a Sandisk Ultra II.
I use the extreme if I plan on holding the shutter button down. The ultra is for when taking pictures for fun or if the extreme is full.
What SD card you get depends on if you like to shoot continuously.

Thank you all for your replys! I apprecate them! umm.. Im new to the Xsi, getting it for x-mas. I wanted to get a memory card so that I was all ready to start playing with it right away. I went into Best Buy to get the extreme III but they were sold out. So the clerk told me that the Ultra II would be just about as fast. I really dont want to have to buy another card right away so I was shopping for the fastest card I could get for now. I got the ultra II 8 gig card for 24.99, it was on sale ;) Then I was just interested in what everyone else used and what you found worked for you guys.. thanks again for the replys I look forward to sharing some pics with all of you!

Sandisk Extreme III 4GB (two copies, one at 20 MB/s and one at 30 MB/s). I don't suspect that I'll see too much difference between the two in practice -- never mind what Rob Galbraith's test showed -- but I'll mostly shoot with the faster one just in case. (Note that the price of the faster is double the price of the slower at the moment, so the "slower" one is probably a great buy.)
