Summary: I bought several of these cards after Transcend discontinued the CF150 series cards. I use them in an industrial environment and load either DOS 6.22 or Windows 98. The 150 series cared works flawlessly but this one WILL NOT. I've contacted Transcend support and they claim the card works when they test it in their facility but I am not able to get a single one to boot once I load the OS. It just comes up that there's no OS once I try to boot to it.
Summary: In short there are bigger cards, faster cards, and cheaper cards, but this one is at the best "bang for buck" category. I have two, the one I recently purchased and one I've had for a year and a half. In general the buffer on my camera (D700) stalls out before the card does. Shooting the way I normally do, which is full size Jpeg and Raw I get about 950 shots at a time. For Jpeg only I'm over twice that at 2,000 pictures.
Summary: This is a CF card that allows me to spend several months of family picture taking without a single download to another storage media, due to its capacity. I have used it for HD videos in a DSLR camera and the transfer speed provides smooth recording, without data loss in this process. For those who have invested a sizable amount of money in DSLR equipment, this is the right choice for storing images and videos.
Summary: Originally I was using a 90 m/sec SDHC. After using this compact flash, I'm able to shoot more frames per second and the time required to transfer the 70MB raw files to my computer were cut in HALF! Super fast card with no problems. If you have a D800 this is the card you want.
Summary: It is really a shame that the 1Gb memory cards are being phased out. The photo kiosks at places like Wal-Mart and Walgreens can not handle more than 1Gb at this time. They will eventuallty change, but this size is best when working with them right now.
Summary: I needed a compact flash to cover industrial operating temperature range -40C to +85C and able to run OS like Windows XP perfectly. The minimium requirement to run OS on compact flash is UDMA. But not all compact flash with UDMA can run OS with no complication. I had tried Lexar Professional 8GB 300x. It installed XP ok but it did not run smoothly. Error popup here and there. After I did more research, I found Transcend TS8GCF100I.
Summary: This is my second Transcend CFC from Amazon and I like them. Use them for Canon SLR digital cameras. Don't have much of a review, works great, fast enough for me. I use a card reader with a USB connection to a desktop to save wear and tear on the camera. Love these cards!
Summary: This card is used in my Nikon D70, and its performance is OK. Although its speed rating is rated higher than my old Sandisk Ultra II, in actual use this does not seem the case. This card lags a bit especially on start-up, but does not seem to slow much in actual use. No corruption problems, it formated easily, and the fit was good. No complaints overall, especially for the price!
