I use SanDisk, I tend to use the same card all the time and have never had any problems.

I have always used Lexar myself. There are various reviews on the most popular brands. Be careful if you buy online, there are fake brand name cards out there.

I use SanDisk.
One thing I would say is to buy from a sensible source. eBay has lots of counterfeit cards for sale - I know from experience. I generally use Amazon.

Some Sandisk cards also include their recovery software.

I mostly buy Sandisk, but cannot say I have ever had any troubles with any other brands either.

I agree with Don. I've heard too many horror stories about fake cards being sold on Amazon from other vendors. Not to say that it's still not some sort of risk, but I think buying directly from Amazon will provide some trust.

I have had a couple of failures with Lexar, usually bought from Amazon or a reliable (!) source. But I do have several, and more are good than not..

I am now trying out Sony Tough SD's, a bit more expensive, they have done away with that little lock slide button, which was always a bit of a hazard trip up...
