Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Transcend 400X - 16 GB Compact Flash Memory Card TS16GCF400 (Blue) (Personal Computers)I bought this card because I had previously purchased Transcend's sdhc card and been satisfied with the purchase. I saw some reviews that said those cards were not as fast as the SanDisk Extreme sdhc cards, but after doing some timing tests between the two types of cards (you can see my review of the Sandisk Extreme sdhc cards for the results of those tests) I decided the Transcend cards were fast enough (as well as being much less expensive) and bought more of them.
My new camera requires compact flash cards so I started looking at the reviews of the Transcend compact flash cards. I saw some reviews by unhappy users, so only bought one card initially. I am pleased to say that I have had no issues with my card. Canon says that I should be able to take 15 continuous raw photos before the buffer fills up and I find using this card I can take 26 before the shutter slows down indicating a reasonable write rate. I have had no issues using the card in full HD movie mode and have had no problems copying the images to my computer. I was pleased enough that I bought a second card yesterday and expect to buy more in the future.
I have not done timing tests between Transcend's 400x and the equivalent SanDisk compact flash cards to see if there was any significant difference, but found with the sdhc cards the only real difference between the class 10 sdhc cards was the formatting time. As of now I am completely satisfied with this card and feel I can recommend it.
