Supposed to be 10MB/Sec read and 8MB/Sec write. Anyone have any good or bad experience with such a card? It's nicely priced at around $250 with shipping. I'm so friggin tempted...since I have a standard Kingston 512MB which does really well with my XT and continuous shooting, but I also have a standard Kingston 1GB which, quite frankly, sucks. It lags like crazy but so do both my standard Sandisk 512s.

Did I just get lucky with a fast standard card in the Kingston?

Would the Kingston Elite Pro be reliable and as fast as it claims to be?

Update: Opinions still wanted but not necessary. I ordered one already. heh. $217 with free 2 day FedEx shipping for 4GB of storage. Can't beat that till prices drop severely. As far as I'm concerned, unless there are serious performance issues, 2 of these will beat the 8GB Sandisk Ultra 2 @ $725 on B&H.

I got the 2gb version last week for $99.
So far so good. Speed is a little faster then my Sandisk UltraII 1gb.
