Sandisk emailed me a sale ad...they have 8GB Ultra II's for about $37 or so. Usually, though, you're sometimes able to get their Extreme III 8GB for the same price. FWIW, I have a few 4GB Ultra II's and they work just fine...never had a failure.

Kingston and/or Transcend and/or RiData @ Newegg. No need to screw around with Sandisk rebates for the prices to be good...and all three brands are solid.

Yeah...forgot to mention newegg.com. Can't speak for Kingston or Transcend, but I have used a lot of 4 GB Ridata cards and never once had a failure. Newegg has 233x 8GB Ridata's for $28 each...just bought two more myself.

I've used Ultra II's for awhile now (along with Extreme III). I use my Extreme III's more often just because I have more of them and because they are of larger capacity. Actually the real reason is Digger Phelps signed my CF card at an ESPN shoot and I don't want it to rub off--horrible reason ;).

If you are willing to go the rebate route, Sandisk has rebates on their Extreme III and IV cards purchased through June 27, 2009 from a qualified dealer (external link). B&H and Beach Camera have the Extreme III 8GB cards for $54.39. Two after rebate would be $68.78 ($34.39 each). Three after rebate would be $83.17 ($27.72 each).

In my case, I purchased three of the cards above from Beach Camera through eBay (same price as ordering direct through their web site). Because of that, I was able to apply a 13% live.com cashback, saving an additional $21. Final cost for all three after rebate and live.com cashback was $61. Not the spectacular deal some were getting last year when the live.com cashback was 25% or more, but still a good deal regardless.
