Not quite what it should be.

Excerpt: I use my equipment mainly for wildlife photography. Quality of the images are OK but sometimes cannot get them to load on my computer. The first time this has ever happened to me. For the price I would think they could supply plastic cases to store them in.
Summary: Unfortunately, I am past the 30 day return window ... but I'm hoping NewEgg or SanDisk will step in and help me out. This was a big purchase and for so many failures to be occurring on so many different cameras, it seems there must be a problem with this group of cards.
Pros: Generally speaking, I am very happy with SanDisk products. I've been using their CF cards for years. I have a couple of hundred of their CF cards and two of their new SSDs. I use the cards a professional photographer and, until this last order, they have been bullet proof. NewEgg, as usual, shipp...
Cons: My order was for 89 cards (was going to buy an even 100, but they didn't have enough in stock). I received the 30MB/second cards, which is great. However, with pretty much every card I use from this shipment, I am seeing one or two images corrupted per use. Each card is formatted prior to re-use ...
Excerpt: Picture quality is not as good on this faster. It appears that it is more suitable for some lighting situations than others and I don't want to have to be switching disks when I am shooting, it is the equiavent of having a shot and wishing you weren't using 800 film but rather 400.
Summary: These CF are supposed to have a Limited Lifetime Warranty...by it will cost you more of your time than it is worth in order to get a RMA replacement if it fails.
Pros: Transfer Speed better in USB/CF adapter --- Supported by Linux and NetBSD in 40/44 pin USB/IDE adapters. Good price. Failure mode was gradual not catastophic...No data loss.
Cons: After 3 months operation, the CF is not operational. Cannot read ofr write it. This may be a temperature related failure...Suspect a connection is being made/broken with thermal expansion (metal contactor)
Summary: Très content du produit en premier lieu ... jusqu'au moment ou la carte m'a l'aissé tomber sans. Puis Amazon me dirigeait vers Sandisk et Sandisk faisait difficile ... j'ai donc du me débrouiller autrement grâce à un revendeur local ... merci à lui !!!
