Well, no. There's no point because these are mainly cheap, commodity
items that change from month to month and size to size.
A 64MB device may be entirely different than the same brand 256MB
device. And a camera will never notice.
More, Vikings, which worked well for me, are different now. Not
that they don't work - I don't know. But they changed vendors.
Recall too that the "hearts" are not made by SANdisk or Lexar or
these folks. There are a couple large chip makers who supply these
guys with their hardware. Casings and stickers are added, but
the internals come from elsewhere. If MyCompany can save $50 per
100,000 with VendorB, MyCompany might change to VendorB.
So lists are moot without dates and hard details about the internals.
Some Lexars work. Bought in 2/2004. Depending on size.
not too helpful.
