Failed The Test
on December 3, 2013
Purchased two of these to use in my Canon 7D, after using Transcend's SD cards for a very long time in my Canon T2i. Had been so pleased with the products........ until now.
Seems one of these CF cards has a bad sector (maybe more than one). Started out with images just plain missing from the card, and now I'm getting pink and purple wide stripes covering the images.
Notified Transcend via email (using address provided on a reply to a review on the 1000X card) five days ago, and so far, no reply. I am a semi pro photographer, and can't afford to be using a card that's unreliable. While I realize that any product can develop problems (or start out with them), a company being non responsive is not acceptable. For me, a company is only as good as the service it provides when things don't go the way they should, and non response to an email is just not acceptable.
***Update, December 11, 2013
Almost ten days after posting my review, still no reply to my email to Transcend. I'm going to return the card to them and hope they make good on their so called "lifetime" warranty, although right now, I'm not at all optimistic. Not happy that I'm going to have to eat the postage to return it as well, on a fairly expensive item.
