I can put over 1,000 RAW files or about 4,000 jpegs on this card and then transfer them all over to my computer in just a few minutes instead of closer to a half-hour. It seems to average around 1Gig a minute. Using burst mode with my camera has also never been faster, this card writes the images almost instantly, with no noticeable lag time, which means you can basically shoot as fast as you camera can handle and the card will keep up.
I have been using this card for a few months now and have taken several thousand shots with it without any problems. If you have the need and the cash this is a great product.
Apparently it's not such a good idea to mess with the file structure outside of your camera. I popped the card into my computer's card reader and started to delete some blurry and duplicate shots I just didn't need. I then popped the card back into the camera to take some shots around my house and the camera read "card not formatted". At that point, I decided to pop the card back into the computer to see what the deal was. I almost had a heart-attack when I saw an empty folder where there had once been about 1300 JPG files. Luckily the story has a good ending... I used the RescuePRO software that came with the card and it found the files (even files that I had deleted manually from my camera during the wedding).
I would strongly recommend that you format your card upon first use and each time you swap between computer and camera (obviously, save the files to your computer before your re-format). After the RescuePRO memory recovery (took about 2 hours) and a fresh re-format, the card seems to work fine. I hope my incident helps current and new E-III buyers.
Keep on shooting!
