Top critical review
One of two failed after several months of use
on June 27, 2012
I purchased two of these cards and have used them in my Canon 60D. Unfortunately, one of them went into complete physical failure while I was shooting my daughter doing dance, causing me to lose several days worth of photos. By this, I do not merely mean corruption of data, but the card is no longer recognizable by any device, camera or computer. Hopefully this failure was but one of a very small fraction that fail catastrophically. If that's the case, my 1 star review will be in the minority. Thus far, the other card has been OK, but I've limited its use to photo frames where anything it loses is backed up elsewhere.
In my case, the photos I had stored on the card from the past several days were of far greater value to me than the the card itself. I spoke to some service people at Staples about data recovery options, and they quoted my a price near $500 should they be successful at recovering any data. For that reason, I decided to let it go. My greatest mistake of all was neglecting to remove all the photos from the card at the end of the day I shot them. With these very large cards that fill slowly, that is a very good habit to acquire. Trust me, it may save you a great deal of disappointment later.
