PostPosted: Tue Sep 20, 2005 1:40 pm    Post subject: Memory and Software Installation Reply with quote

I got a question here regarding the storage. So far I only installed apps to main memory, I am wondering is it a good idea to install apps to the ROM? What type of software should I install into ROM, main ram and external card?I only have abt 10MB RAM left for program installation.

With my limited experience, most applications can be installed using Built-in Storage or an external card. Since I swap external cards often, I install software using Built-in Storage since it will always be available no matter what external cards I use. If you have an external card and do exchange your external cards often, you will get better performance installing the software to the external card than you will using Built-in Storage, especially if you have a fast external memory card.

As far as external memory goes, I recommend any of the following compact flash memory cards:
  1. Lexar CompactFlash Card - 1GB - 40X speed
  2. Lexar - 1 GB PRO 80X Compact Flash W/WA
  3. SanDisk 1GB Compact Flash Ultra II - 60X
and these SD cards:
  1. Lexar 1GB Secure Digital 32X Memory Card
  2. SanDisk Ultra II 1GB Secure Digital Memory Card - 60X
Note: I have not personally tested each type.

Of course, there are other places and other capacities available (256 MB up to 4 GB for CF, 256 MB up to 2 GB for SD), but I find these are very fast and worth the extra expense. I also recommend the Extreme III cards from Sandisk, but I have not researched prices. I have just reviewed the impressive specifications on Sandisk's web site.

By the way, I thought I would add a few more thoughts on memory for the X50v. One, the X50v accesses the memory on the SD card faster than on the CF card. Two, most handhelds have a SD card slot while many do not have a CF card slot, so you might be better off putting your money into SD cards. That way, you can use them for other or future devices.

Also note, if you purchase the higher speed cards, they usually come with a lifetime warranty while the lower speed cards usually just come with a five-year warranty. Anyway, just some more food for thought.

Take care,
Lance
