I knew about the Durham store, but if the Raleigh store is any
indicator, I would be out of luck there as well. It is a long drive from
Wendell, NC to Durham just for one compactflash card.
I had already tried the consumer types like Target, Walmart, etc. Unless
it was on sale, I am positive that Best Buy, Circuit City would be
priced too high.
Newegg has the same item that tiger direct shows in it's flyer for about
7 dollars less, My experience with Newegg has always been good.
I guess that is the route I will take.
Who wants to pool resources to start an computer/electronics supply
store in the Triangle??? ( or Raleigh )??
