Anyone have an opinion which one is better and what a good brand might be? Thanks.

Hard to say as you haven't given any information. One thing to bear in mind is that a SD can be a good choice as it leaves the CF slot available for other things beside storage e.g. (wireless) ethernet cards.

SanDisk is a respected make.

A few advantages that immediately spring to mind in favor of CF

* Swap is better on a CF as it wont keep writing to the same sector
* CF cards are cheaper per megabyte
* MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) are longer for CF cards

SD requires less power than CF.
