Two Cards died within the course of a week--never again

Excerpt: My news crew just had to eat and reshoot a half dozen news pieces due to the failure of TWO Transcend 64GB 400X cards within the space of a week. Saving a few bucks just isn't worth the risk. Never again...
Excerpt: I bought 2, because of the price. After about 1 year of using it on my D800 and lately on the D810, they stopped working. I can shoot about 50 photos, and then the camera can't write on the card anymore and displays an error message. The photos already shot are usable though.
Excerpt: The first 2 cards and the last time I will ever consider buying from "Transcend". Worst experience ever! I got 2 and initial test (random few shots of photo and several minutes of video) works fine.
Cons: Do not retain files, Loss files, Unreliable Transfer
Excerpt: I use the card with the Sony HVRZ7U. I've only used it on 2 shoots and on the second shoot it kept telling me there was a "Format Error" until eventually it worked properly. Kind of wishing I went with a Sony brand card but I do like the GB size of the card and the price was great..
Summary: I am currently rebuilding the partition in hopes of saving some of the pictures.
Pros: None Yet.
Cons: First time used in my Canon 40D failed after taking around 600 RAW +JPEG pictures (13GB). All that remains is the empty DCIM and MISC folders. I don't recommend using such a large storage device as a critical component.
This is was definitely the worst thing i've ever bought online

Summary: This is was definitely the worst thing i've ever bought online. I bought it so I would have lots of room to shoot a wedding down south, put it in my camera the day before I left for dominican and error 80 popped up, unable to take pictures on it as it locked up my camera.. SO mad.
