I use this in a Canon 5D Mk III.

Previously, only using the Lexar 1000x card could get you to maximum fps/burst on the Canon spec chart. That's not the case anymore.

I bought the 64GB version of this card having had good experiences with Transcend cards in the past. I upgraded it from a 32GB 400x Transcend CF card, which is now relegated to a backup card after being blown out of the water by this one.

I put this CF card into my 5D Mk III and turned off all settings such as high ISO noise reduction, auto lighting optimization, etc. (i.e. anything that might slow it down), back button focused on an object and then begin firing. SDHC card was in the camera, but relegated to being a fail over if the CF card filled up (which won't happen quickly, given I'm reading 1600+ shots on this 64GB card shooting Large RAW only). Shutter speed was set to 1/640.

The results are hard to argue with:

Shooting Large RAW on high speed continuous (6 fps), the camera says the buffer has 13 shots. I averaged 18/19 over about three seconds though before the shutter speed/rhythm started to stutter and slow down.

When I put my camera on silent continuous (3 fps, same as low speed continuous), I took over two hundred shots with no stutter before I took my finger off the shutter release button.

When I put it on Large JPEG, I fired of 230+ shots on high speed continuous (6 fps) with no lag or stutter before I took my finger off the shutter release button.

Bottom line: on the 5D Mk III, this 64GB 1000x CF card is more than fast enough for my occasional burst usage, and it's nearly $120 cheaper than the Lexar at the time of this review.

When I copied 1.

I used this 64 Gb Transcend CF chip and a 32 Gb SD SanDisk Extreme Pro simultaneously in my Canon 5D Mk III on two previous shoots. The SanDisk is used for JPG backups while the faster higher capacity Transcend was used for RAW. On the second shoot the SanDisk chip got corrupted. I went to the SanDisk site to download their free recovery utility only to find that it is no longer free. I was redirected to a third party site where they wanted $40 for the software. Luckily the Transcend chip came with its own recovery software that I had installed on my computer. It worked like a charm and recovered my files.
The Transcend CF seems to be reasonably fast and keeps up with my 3 to 5 shot bursts of RAW files averaging 20+ Mb each. By observation only, the eventual transfer from the CF to my computer using a USB3 card reader also appeared to go quickly. I have used SanDisk, Transcend and Kingston chips in the past and normally have found the SanDisk and Transcend chips to be superior to the Kingston. If you use the SanDisk just know their recovery software is no longer free for download unless you catch a special promotion. All chips from any manufacturer can get corrupted. Make sure your camera is turned off and has finished writing before chip removal to avoid problems.

I bought this for my Canon 1DC for the 4K shooting. And 1DC is very particular about its write speed: 100MB/S and it eats up memory too. 1 minute recording takes up 4GB memory. What I was concerned about was the write speed and a good price/performance ratio as an alternative to Lexar and Sandisk. I spent a lot of time researching for an alternative, and there aren't many options. This one definitely is the best alternativw and option for anyone who needs high write speed. There are a few other similar cards around with the 1000X speed label but I think they could reach the read speed of 150MB/S but not the 100MB/S write speed.

So far, this Transcend 128GB 1000X lives up to its own specs. I am happy with it. When I bought the card, it seems to be one of the last three sold by Amazon directy, and the price was good, something like $325. I love this card and will buy more.

The Transcend Information 32 GB Compact Flash Card works great with my Nikon D800 and Lexar and Anker/Uspeed usb3 cf readers. It is a tiny bit faster in reading using the usb3 cf readers than the Lexar 1000x 32gb. I have both. I actually got 160gb/sec read using windows explorer in Win 7 and Win 8. The lexar got 150mb/sec, so no big deal. The Transcend is a little bit cheaper now, but your price may vary.

Just know that usb3 is ridiculous fast when it works. The lexar reader works great in Win 7 and 8. But the Anker/Uspeed only works with Win 8 usb3. This was true for both the Transcend and Lexar cards. So I highly recommend the Lexar reader with this card.

I'm updating my review as an 18 month longer term review, and downgrading to three stars now that I've had two issues.

First issue, I received what was effectively a DOA card, here's the catch though, initially I could shoot with it in my Canon 5D3. What happened is I received the card and immediately threw it in the camera and shot a few pics. It came formatted so that was not an issue. Then, I read the most popular review for it on here and saw the notes about how you don't achieve ideal performance until you run a Transcend AutoFormat utility pass over it to re-format the card in complete (slow) mode and then re-do a quick format from the camera.

So that's what I started out trying to do. Downloaded the AutoFormat utility, began the format process, but it hung at 46.55% and went no further. Quit, tried again, same point it hangs. I tried formatting from Windows 7 itself, that ultimately hung and failed after a few hours, same behavior on my MacBook Pro. I tried AutoFormat once more and this time it produced an actual fail message. I'm guessing there are some bad memory cells in the card I received.

In any case, the purpose of my review is primarily to let you know that with a 64 GB card, that you only quick format, or perhaps just use right out of the box, you may shoot for a while before running into any bad portions and if you reach that point and the filesystem on the card becomes corrupt, you could lose your pictures. I'd recommend using the AutoFormat utility on any new card just to be sure it can complete the entire pass before you put the card into use.
