Excerpt: Over time I've graduated toward using Lexar memory cards, and Lexar card readers, exclusively. That's because they have never failed me. Although still photography might not require high write speeds, fast read speed is helpful when you need to download a lot onto the hard drive.
Excerpt: I use these cards in a Nikon D300, if you wonder about compatability with older cameras. They work great and thus far have had no problems. They seem to empty the buffer as fast as anything else I have, so I may be hitting a camera, rather can card, speed limit. I can't speak for newer cameras.
Excerpt: I am a photographer, so good equipment is a must. Lexar more than meets those expectations I have when buying equipment for my business! I would recommend Lexar to anyone researching what brand to buy.
Excerpt: I bought this Lexar 800x CF card together with my new D810 DSLR from B&H in favor of Lexar's market reputation (product performance compared to SanDisk) and their cost. And this was my first Lexar product.
