Good product

  • Pros: Reliable and haven't had any problems yet
  • Cons: May be a bit slow when shooting raw but that may be my camera and not the stick.

Not guaranteed to be IDE compatible

Samuel R., Newegg
17 March 2009
  • Summary: I thought that being DMA compatible was the same as IDE capable. There are several different controllers that get put into these cards and the OEM manufacturers often mix them up, so you may even have different controllers in a single card, based on the size.
  • Pros: Good price, prompt tech support by email.
  • Cons: The one I received wasn't IDE capable, as is often the case with retail CF cards.

Corrections about IDE compatability

Samuel R., Newegg
17 March 2009
  • Summary: The Syba 44 pin IDE to CF adapter (SY-IDE2CF-NB25) I bought seems to be the cause of the problems I'm having getting the motherboard to see this card. Time to break out the multi-meter and check the traces...
  • Pros: After a few emails from PNY tech support their engineers confirmed that some units are IDE/ATA compatible, but due to the mixed supply the packaging does not indicate this feature. According to the rep I spoke with, cards with serial numbers starting like "CF04GCH..." are ATA compatible, but seri...
  • Cons: Can't see if the card is IDE/ATA compatible from the exterior of the package.

Great Cards

Kayle M., Newegg

266X Pny CF Card

Super fast on a D300

William G., Newegg
31 August 2008
  • Summary: Recently upgraded from a D80 to a D300 so I needed to get CF cards, which are way more expensive than SD cards. But, My D300 supports this UDMA thing, which is super fast writing/read speed so I decided to get this card instead of the camera shop's 120$ card.
  • Pros: Fast write speed, fast read speed, cheap
  • Cons: More expensive than SD cards

Boots XP in under 20 secs

Anonymous, Newegg
16 August 2008
  • Summary: CFs are really solid state IDE drive. Get a CF-IDE adapter for under 20 bucks and you can boot your computer with a CF. It is quiet and cool. No pun intended.
  • Pros: Price. Worked as expected.
  • Cons: None that I can complain about. There are faster CF at 350x, but they are too expensive right now.

GSTORE 8GB CF KART+OKUYUCU HEDİYE+KARGO ÜCRETSİZ

yasin_kaya, Gittigidiyor
11 November 2010
  • Summary: 8GB compakt flash + Kart okuyucu olarak aldım. Müthiş ilgili bir şirket. Bir günde kargo ile gönderiyorlar. ürünler gayet güzel. Benim kart okuyucu W7 sistemde pek çalışmadı, anında yenisini gönderdiler. Kesinlikle şirketi tavsiye ediyorum. KART'a gelince kart orta seviye bir kart.
  • Pros: Fiyatı uygun, satıcı çok iyi. BirolTrade tavsiye ediyorum.
  • Cons: Kart okuyucuyu Windows7de performanslı çalıştıramadım. belki bir sürücü ile problem çözülebilir. Kart çok çok hızlı değil biraz ağır kalıyor. ancak yedek kart olarak her zaman işe yarar.
