The promotional MicroSD card is just that: a promotional freebie, a kind of thank you gift. The music on it is supposed to be the real point, isn't it? It's a cool way to try out the expansion capability of the Fuze.

Amazon has 8GB cards for $35.00 plus shipping and handling (7.00). Yes the S&H is excessive, but 8GB for under 45 bucks? Why settle for 4? 8GB Fuze plus 8GB card = 16GB of music goodness. Almost 4000 tracks. Yeah baby. Can't wait until the 16 GB or 32 GB cards come out.

When getting a "cheap" card, make sure you look for "Class 6" in the specs. Many will be Class 4 (kinda slow) or worse, Class 2 (agonizingly slow). As far as I know 8GB Class 6 cards are not available yet, so if you must have 8GB make sure it's at least Class 4. Best bang for the buck is currently 4GB Class 6, which can be had for under $20 (at Newegg for example).

I like the 8GB card I have, it is class 4. I opted for the additional storage, because my 8GB card content remains static. I don't sync to it. I load it once with my favorites and forget it.
I actively sync using intenal memory. I use 2GB for Rhapsody Channels, and Actively Refresh the other 6GB with Winamp. The 8 GB card holds all my 80's music (2GB) and 6GB of my favorite albums (a mix of genres and artists).
For me the 8GB card was the way to go, since I only have to load it once. (Took about 40 minutes in Drag and Drop MSC mode)
