The read/write speed is amazingly fast and I have no complaints in this regard.

Exchange it for another one, and maybe buy an extra since your already saving half your money over buying an identical card from the competition! :)

I've had my fair share of Compact Flash Memory Cards. From Kingston, to Transcend, to Patriot, etc... I've ran several speed benchmarks for read, write and access times. This is the only memory card I've tested that actually matches it's advertised speed.

The whole industry for memory card speeds and advertising is so nonchalant. There is no official standardized testing for memory card speeds. So many companies actually do their "own tests" to measure speed and make outrageous claims on their memory cards. Most cards i've tested run about 20-40% of it's advertised speed. This particular card runs at 89-91 mb/sec for read/write which fulfills its claim of 90mb/sec.

On another note: I use this for my Canon 7D. Most other memory cards cannot keep up with the write/read/access time speed for recording video with the 7D. This is the only one that works. You will know your memory card cannot handle the high speed demands of your 7D or 5D is when you see the loading/access bar on the LCD screen and suddenly, your camera automatically stops recording.

Highly recommended!

The only downside, is the rip off shipping for $10 each. I know it costs around $2-3 for USPS first class shipping.

I just bought the ultimate birder CF card!!!!

After you fill the buffer completely full on a 5D Mark II it will continue to shoot and record a steady 2 shots per second until the card is full.

That's right, over 500 shots on the 5D Mark II at two shots per second until full

Soon we will have cards where we no longer worry about the buffer!

AMAZING!!!

I got tired of waiting on my camera to write to my card and waiting on my card reader to download to the computer and so looked around for something a little bit faster.

Using a firewire 800 reader the download speed that this card maintains to my Mac is amazing!

I highly recommend!

I use this card in my Canon EOS 7D to shoot swim meets. I shoot all day, in the sun, typically about 1,500 to 1,800 images, at full size / highest quality (not raw). At times, I shoot at the high speed 8 frames per second setting. The 7D shows an estimate of how many images can be taken before the card has to slow down to process them. It is typically around 90 images! I have NEVER had to stop shooting because the card couldn't keep up with the camera. Incidentally, my images are shot at the highest setting for JPEGs, and yield 5184 x 3456 pixel images around 7 to 8 MB each. At 1,800 images, the card still had room for about another 600 images.

Does exactly as advertised. It's 32gb and writes about 20% faster than the Transcend 300x cards in my D700. Writes and reads at least 50% faster in my FW800 reader. Feels lighter and more hollow than my other CF cards.

I had a 16gb 300x card fail after 2 years and Transcend exchanged it for a brand new one with no questions asked. Quickly too. I have been using their cards in CF, SD, and SDHC flavors for at least nine years now, with only the one failed card. I don't expect this card to fail, but if it does, I expect I'll get good service again.

Compare to the SanDisk Ducatis and others--these cards are a steal.

Only con: not available in 64gb at this speed.

UPDATE 2012: After upgrading to an SSD, I can pull files off this at over 70MB/s with my Firewire 800 reader and around 65MB/s with my USB3 one. This card appears to be getting better with age! (originally reviewed in 2010)

Seriously fast, keeps up with my 9fps Nikon D3.

Hasn't failed yet.

I also have a SanDisk mounted in the 2nd CF slot in case something happens.

But 1 year solid, MADE IN THE USA, and going strong. . .no complaints here. . .not sure how it'd do with video, but as far as taking pictures and holding thousands of pictures, don't go farther than this.

Remember, no CF is 100% reliable. Backup and FORMAT YOUR CARD every time you clear all your precious pictures off of it - and you have to format it IN YOUR CAMERA, a lot of people forget this!

Happy shooting. . .

Updated, with the price dropping even more on these, I purchased another.
So far, I've been shooting for quite awhile with one 32GB 600x Transcend. I purchased another to fill both slots of my D3 - I'm also hoping, with the impending release of the D4, that I can take advantage of the fast writing, transferring, and capture speeds of the Card as picture sizes invariably grow. Very happy with these cards...just remember to format in your camera before you start shooting!

I needed a card for my RAW format shooting that was reasonably priced and performed well. I looked at Sandisk & Lexar, which until now were my preferred brands, and placed them in my shopping carts hoping the price would drop to the $200 price range. I saw the Transcend appear as an option, but resisted due to lack of confidence. I was wrong. I bought one Transcend 32 GB Compact Flash Card 600X card and placed it in my Nikon D3 and formatted it and put it through all my own rudimentary tests. I was incredibly impressed. This card has exceeded my expectations. I bought a second card and am absolutely amazed at the speed that the camera can copy from one CF to the other, and transfer speed to the Mac is so much faster than before and the camera seems to shoot much faster when its internal buffer fills up and becomes dependent on the speed of the card. I've taken a couple of thousand pictures with both these cards, in two different cameras and have had 100% success. I give this product 5* and have Transcend 600x cards now on top of my preferred lists.
