Recommendations for CF card

Black Friday approaches. I plan to buy a hard drive, but I also want to get my filthy hands on a CF card that will work with jLime on my Jornada 720--my current Micro Center-branded 2GB card is not recognized and if it's cheap enough, can more CF cards really hurt? I really appreciate RTFM's prebuilt images (thanks ten billion, dawg, it's great) but I want to be running jLime for...well, "standardization," and because I want to be running the 2.6 kernel.

So are there any recommendations? Perhaps any tips on good sales this Friday? Experience with brand-name cards that work well, or others that work less well? I'm looking for anything from 2-4GB. Preferably closer to 4, so I can use it as a hard drive for my old IBM laptop and swap my current "fast" card into the Jornada.

Any information or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Question for those who know: Wouldn't it just be cheaper to buy an 8 or 16 gb SD card and use a CF adapter? Would there be any noticeable speed loss?

Not on most H/PC's, no. The bus's are too slow. You would have an observable difference between the two on the host PC though.
