16gb SD card replacement for Evo
I'm not sure if this is the place to post this or not. But over on the Adorama.com currently has (Kingston Technology 16 GB Micro Secure Digital, microSD, Memory Card with Adaptors to MiniSD & Standard SD card) on sale for $20. It's only a class 2, but I got this as a replacement card for the one that is currently shipped with the Evo. Hope this helps someone out looking for a deal on a card.

Post might be spam, but as an hobbyist photographer, I can vouch that adorama is a legit site for gear (though I usually go through B&H).

Thanks. I picked one up. Its a class 2, but at that price to double the capacity from 8 to 16gb it a good deal. Same card at Amazon is $47.

In the poster's defense... I've ordered camera equipment from Adorama for many years without any issues. My guess is that this isn't a "too good to be true deal" so much as a "lots of people suddenly ordering over a holiday weekend" situation.

LOL and if you visit the link now, they have caught the issue. There is now a red font disclaimer: "We ran out of this Item Temporarily.
Please note: You can order this now and have us ship it as soon as it arrives.
We will not charge your card for any backordered items, until it is ready to actually ship"
And the price is now $39.95. So... since I got it early for $19.95 with free shipping, I'm not going to grumble too loudly about the backorder situation.

I ordered one of these yesterday and received the following email from Adorama:
We have received your order for the KGSDMC16GB2A (KINGSTON 16GB MICRO
SECURE DIGITAL CARD), however we regret most sincerely that we need to
inform you that this was incorrectly uploaded to Our website at $19.95
- instead of the correct selling price of $39.95.
We appologize that you may be disappointed, however, we hope and trust
that the customers who were affected by this pricing error will
understand that this was a genuine mistake, and that you will accept
our deep apology that we are unable to accept your order for the card
at the previously published price.
In accordance with our Terms and Conditions of Web Site Use and our
Pricing and Availability Policy, we are left with no choice but to

I understand how you feel - and in your position I am sure I'd be thinking the same thing.
However, the price on the webpage was a typing error by a single individual in the admin team. Adorama doesn't actually make a charge until an item is shipped, so nobody actually lost anything.
It does say on the website:
This web site is intended to be a guide only.
.....We make every effort to provide you with an error-free website, in the event there is a misprint, we reserve the right to correct copy or pricing to reflect actual current status.
We are not responsible for typographical or pictorial errors.
I do want to add my apologies to the company apology to anyone who was disappointed, as a result of this genuine human error - and however fed up you are right now, having spoken to the guy who messed up on this one, I think he may be in a worse place....
