From the Manufacturer
Digital cameras and media designed for speed
Write Acceleration Technology (WA) allows digital cameras and CompactFlash cards to work together perfectly to pass and store images more quickly and achieve image-write speeds never before possible.
Speed rated at 40x (6 Mbps)
Improved write performance in WA enabled cameras. Combination of camera and card firmware that reduces read/write protocol overhead for faster image storage.

I checked Lexar's website, and it said that my camera does not support the Write Acceleration technology. The link is here: [...]
Current (as of this review) cameras supporting WA technology:
- All Kodak Professional cameras and pro camera backs, such as the DCS Pro Back 645, DCS Pro Back Plus, DCS 720x, DCS 760, DCS 760m and DCS 14n
- Nikon D1x, D1h, D-100 (Requires camera firmware upgrade by Nikon. See Nikon's web page for more details) and D2h
- Sanyo DSC-MZ3
- Sigma SD-9
- Sigma SD10
- Pentax *ist D
- Olympus E1
Lexar USB Card Reader (included):
- Works only with Lexar CF Cards. Attempted to use with SanDisk and Kingston CF Cards but did not work. Should not be a problem if you only use Lexar products. However, if you do, consider buying a separate card reader.

I have always liked Lexar's flash memory products, as I've never had a single problem with the dozen of them I've owned (CF, SD, MS). Lexar's cards are also compatible with a wider range of products than Sandisk or Viking. The only other flash brand I totally trust is Panasonic, but they only make SD these days.
If you have a digital SLR the 40x speed should be enough. I don't know of any current d-SLR that really takes advantage of anything higher than 6mbps.
I also use an 'el-cheapo' card reader to unload images into Photoshop Elements and it works great with the Lexar card.
This is the only memory card device I've ever known that's failed. That include my own collection of devices (over a dozen), and probably hundreds of other cards owned by friends and relatives.
I bought Lexar because it was a premium brand with a good reputation. In my opinion, at least, that reputation is not deserved.
I finally received the replacement card, only to find it was defective as well! So much for QA at Lexar.
After complaining loudly to technical support, things improved somewhat. They took back the card (again), but this time at their expense (they provided a Fedex acct number) and shipped a replacement card overnight. I'm still not thrilled, but if you complain enough, you'll get reasonable service.
Still 1 star, still not a great card, but at least their service department deserves recognition for trying.

This was a great card, but as of Jan. 2008 it is far outperfomed by other cards, but its price has not dropped to reflect this. It is perhaps worth $15.Published on January 28, 2008 by Kindle Customer
