Quote from: Midphase on December 29, 2013, 02:47:40 AMI've been using KB 64Gb 1000X cards for the better part of the year without any problems. One of the things that Komputerbay advises on is to use a fully UDMA-7 CF card reader, using one that's not UDMA-7 might result in a corrupted CF card, and not all USB 3 CF card readers are UDMA-7 certified.
Quote from: fedemazza on December 28, 2013, 03:11:57 PMThanks a lot Krane.Here in italy Sandisk is 3 times the price of a KB, does it really worth?
Quote from: evilash on December 30, 2013, 07:14:35 AMI've been having reasonably good luck with the 32GB Transcend 1000x, was going to try out a KB card but the Transcend was on sale at B&H for $85 with a free reader so I went for it. The reader is the Transcend USB3 one, which is UDMA-7 compliant. So far I've been able to capture at 1728x972 (on a 7D, of course) continuously, with Global Draw off. The Warm Up card option seems to help as well. I hear a lot of debate about the KB vs the Lexars, but not many people talking about these cards. Probably because they're terrible and I've made a huge mistake, but I'll live with it.
Quote from: reddeercity on December 28, 2013, 06:23:41 PMLexar 1000x are the only stable ones with out problems!I have 2, I know they may be a bit pricey But you pay for what you get.I have been using Lexar since June or this yearAnd never had a problem ever. But it you do some searches on the formYou will see many problems with them, Like "can't get files off CF card" etc...And the list goes on. It's the only one I tust for paid work.
Quote from: reddeercity on December 31, 2013, 08:05:09 AMI Think it really come down to best practices for All Cards no matter what brand.Like formatting , Ejecting the card right from reader, etc....there's No Prefect CF card just degrees of better manufacturing and it seems Lexar's are near the Top.
Quote from: canoncan on December 31, 2013, 07:24:23 AMI have no problem with the price, but I read an article about the Lexars failing randomly, and now I'm not sure if they are reliable after all. Lexar is still my top choice, but it's hard to find reliable information.
Quote from: Baarman on January 06, 2014, 12:44:35 AMThe newest Sandisk Extreme Pro UDMA7 160MB/s VPG65 CF cards are great for raw video. I tested 64GB, 128GB and 256GB and finally decided to purchase 256GB which is absolutely reliable with my 5dMK3. And even older Sandisk Extreme Pro UDMA7 100MB/s VPG20 handles continues 24fps 1080p raw video well. Make sure that you don't mix it with older Sandisk Extreme Pro 90MB/s UMDA6 that wasn't capable to hold recording speed above 83MB/s but rather stood around 75MB/s.
Quote from: Johannes on January 07, 2014, 04:29:19 PMHm.. 256GB sounds cool.I maybe decided to purchase to. How many times have you use the card until yet? Often?Maybee you can warn me If Something goes wrong with you card.
Quote from: Krane on January 07, 2014, 07:26:46 PMThere is an exponential increase in price that was left out from the above post. By the time you reach the maximum 256 GB the price becomes astronomical, so choose wisely. I don't think anyone else makes a card of that size, and although any card can fail, Sandisk is as good as it gets.
Quote from: Johannes on January 07, 2014, 08:33:46 PMI'm not sure what you mean. My post rises the price? Really? - Sorry for that dumpy question?For me the Question is when drop the price..
