Excerpt: I have two of these cards that I use in a heavy rotation. I have used one of these cards for a year. The second card I have had for about 6 months. I just had one of the cards fail. I was able to use a recovery program to get the images. I will not use that card again and the second Kingston CF card, I now view with circumspect. I have been shooting on CF cards since 2006 and never have had a card fail.
