Hey for a $43 CF and $3 adapter (non Tarkan), I think this is as low as you can get for a 64GB conversion.
Not just cheaper, but to reduce the risk from losing one you lose everything. Don't forget you always have one battery charged full waiting to serve you.
Yes 46$ is cheaper. If you stay in the 128gb range the sdxc quality card will be cheaper, for example your Lexar 400x is worth 200$ on amazon and the sdxc 149$ so it is cheaper. A converter will cost you an extra 20 for 169$. I can get a very good card for 80$ but for sure for 100$ very good price for 128gb. As far as speed, even Tarkan has done some measurements and with today's cards it's not as much of a problem. For the sdxc, he and I suggest to use class 10 being the speediest. I tried all kinds SSD, cf and sdxc and found them to be all fine and performant as long as you get the 133x and faster.
There is nothing better than a healthy backup schedule to deal with your loosing everything, that is true for computers and mp3's as well they are recording devices that can also fail.
I myself keep two devices which I switch and charge so I won't be without music. The amp on the other hand is a different issue Edited by musicheaven - 7/20/13 at 11:09am
