    1Gb Olympus xD Memory Card

    Hi,

    I'm going to Thailand next month. I can purchase a 1Gb Olympus xD Memory Card here for 83 EURO (4,100 THB) - could anybody tell me if they think it would be any cheaper in Bangkok?

    We're staying in the Pathumwan Princess so shopping in the MBK should be easy to do, unless there is somewhere else which may be cheaper...

    Any response would be much appreciated,
    thanks in advance,

    Clare

    Olympus XD Picture Card 512 MB - 3,300.00
    Apacer Photo Steno Pro II Compact Flash Card 100X, 1 GB - 4,690.00
    Kingston Compact Flash 1 GB, 25X - 2,800.00
    Kingston Compact Flash Ultra Elite Pro 1 GB, 40X - 3,550.00
    Transcend Compact Flash Card 2GB, 45X - 9,500.00

    I would think you are better off buying in your home country. The 4GB cards recently came out which will help to push these prices down later.

    Thank you Sawatdee.

    Could you tell me is a Compact Flash Card the same as an xD card?

    Thanks again,

    No, they are bigger. I was just giving you a price comparison as I couldn't find a price for your 1 GB card yet. Maybe I can find it later this week. We need to buy one ourselves soon.

    Panthip Plaza Perhaps?

    I have always assumed that you can get a better price in Panthip Plaza, but as I said, it's an assumption.

    Are there any BKK residents that care to comment?

    Even within Panthip Plaza you have to shop around to get a good price. Sometimes it is comparable and sometimes it is cheaper at MBK. Basically, Panthip has a nice selection of digital cameras but you would need to go to MBK if you want any extras to go with it.

    Did you get those prices from www.pantipprice.com Sawatdee ? They seem to be the same as on there, but I reckon they're about 10% more expensive than what you could get in MBK

    Nevertheless, Clare would probably still be better off getting them out of Thailand, I reckon the 1GB would be in 4500 - 4800B range in Bangkok.

    A quick scan of eBay shows some sellers listing 1GB xD cards at around £50 (3500B) 'Buy It Now', if this is any help?

    1Gb Olympus xD Memory Card

    Thanks to everybody who replied. As there isn't a big difference in price, I think I'll purchase here (either on Amazon or eBay) and so will be ready for lots of photography when I arrive in Bangkok!

    Thanks again,
    Clare

    I'm going to start another thread now asking about (genuine) Quiksilver wetsuits...
