SanDisk's Ultra II CompactFlash Cards Win TIPA Award -- Europe's Highest Award For Best Photo Products

SanDisk Corporation today announced that the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), an association made up of 30 top photography publications from across Europe, has awarded its Best Imaging Storage Media Award to the SanDisk Ultra(R) II CompactFlash(R) line of high-speed storage cards. The SanDisk Ultra II cards were recognized by leading editors, many of whom are professional photographers, as setting "a new standard for industry performance." TIPA editors judge on quality, performance and value -- criteria that are very important to all photographers.

"It is a real honor for our efforts to be recognized by such a distinguished panel of experts and one that makes all of us here at SanDisk very proud. The TIPA Award is further assurance that SanDisk's Ultra II cards will meet the rigorous demands of digital photographers around the world."

The coveted TIPA award is a winning endorsement for the superior speed and performance of the SanDisk Ultra II line, which includes CompactFlash, Memory Stick PRO(TM) and SD(TM) card formats. SanDisk Ultra II cards are targeted at digital cameras with 4 megapixel or higher resolution that can take advantage of a significantly faster memory card. Each card features a minimum write speed of 9 megabytes per second (MB/sec.) and a minimum read speed of 10MB/sec.(1)
