Today I decided to take the plunge and pick up a new, larger Memory Stick for my Clié 610 that's on its way back from St. Royea Hospital in Canada. On Friday, I came across an ad for eCost.com advertising Lexar 128MB Memory Sticks for just $20 after rebates! But alas, I was too late and the stock was sold out.
Today at lunch break I received a new email alert from eCost.com that again featured the $20 Lexar 128MB Memory Stick, so I tried again. The eCost website was slow as molasses, but eventually I was able to place my order and grab one of these Memory Sticks. Whew!
Now I'll be able to store more ebooks and keep my backups all on the same Memory Stick -- something I found difficult on the 32MB stick I have now and the 16MB internal RAM I used to have on the old 610. The Frankenstein'ed 610 will only have 8MB, which will be limiting, but with a 128MB Memory Stick, I hope to compensate somewhat.
So, if you're looking for a cheap memory Stick or SD card, or other electronic hardware, be sure to check out eCost.com!
