: : Hi,
: : Are there any OTHER sources for FlashRAM cards other than Pretec or Marshall. I read somewhere on the Alesis Page that Radio Shack carried them. Anyone know anything about this? Thanks, Sonny

: I don't know if RadioShack carries them or not, but don't buy ANY computer equipment from them. They have an incredible markup and most of what they sell is crap.

Well, as an ex-rat shack employee, I would say that, no not everything they sell is shit (and a low quality ram card would just not work - c'mon, there's not a lot of variance). Most of what Radio Shack carries, they buy from vendors and slap their product tag on it. However, the markup does float around 50%, whereas most competitive companies float around 20%.

As to getting your card from RS, you can get it through their special order department, "RSU" or Radio Shack Unlimited. I wouldn't recommend going there though.

Sorry if this sounded like an ad for the place - I just hate it when people spout off uninformed claims.
