Don't buy SD cards from Argos

Picked up the new Argos catalogue at the weekend, and I’m still shocked to see the prices Argos think they can charge for digital memory cards. For example: an unbranded 1GB SD card for £22.99, or cards branded Kodak and Fujifilm for £27.99… ‘less than half price!’ Meanwhile, over at Amazon – a 1GB Kingston Technology SD card for the truly startling price of £1.29 (plus Marketplace postage rates). Or for a direct comparison: this SanDisk Ultra II 1GB SD card. As little as £11.97 from an Amazon marketplacer, but £33.99 from Argos – and that’s even with a £16 discount already applied.
