Default Transcend 32gb 400x for 7d?

I am looking at this because it is such a cheaper option:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820208529

Anyone have any experience using that card for the 7d?

How long does it take to clear a full buffer?

I've heard something about the 16gb not really being 400x but that the 32gb actually is much closer to 400x...

Anyone? Need some feedback! Price is so tempting!

I really like all the Transcend 400X cards I have tried. I have the 16GB version and it is rather fast, I am not sure how fast "true" 400x is, but it is certainly faster than my Sandisk 8GB Ultras.

With the 16GB 400x Transcend card I can essentially indefinitely shoot the largest resolution jpeg without any noticeable slowdown. (never really tried past 5-6 seconds tho, no real need to)

Same here. Using the Transcend 16gb 400x on a 7D. No issues so far.

They are amazing deal, especially compaired to the competion.

Yes, the 32G and 64G cards are faster than the 8/16G cards.
the 32/64G are rated 90MB/s read 60MB/s write, and
the 8/16G cards are rate 60MB/s read and 30MB/s write.

I use 5 of the 64G 400X cards in my 7D, and love them.

I have used the Transcend 32GB 400X for six months on my 1D Mark IV and it works like a gem. It's fast, reliable and I've had absolutely no problems with it. The read and write speed of my card is as advertised.

I have an older 133x 32GB and it has never failed me in my 5DMarkII.

Does anyone see any benefit in the 600x over the 400X? I dont expect to see anything in camera. Wondering if its worth the $15 premium on the 16GB cards.

I got tired of packing laptops and Digital Wallets while on Vacation.
It's not hard to fill them all up in a 2 or 3 week vacation to someplace interesting, like Paris

Disk space is cheap I have a few NAS boxes, a 12 Drive ISCSI System and am building a new
48TB (24 * 2TB) Storage Array with an Adaptec 52445 Hardware Raid card, Dual 2.6G Quad Core
Xeon processors, and 24G DDR3 ECC 1333M RAM

I am sorry, 48TB is not cheap... nor is 24GB of ECC ram... cheap compared to some camera gear I guess, lol

On a side note, aren't you afraid of failure? I am paranoid so I RAID everything I have, lol. It has already saved me data so it has been worth it.

EDIT: How much is that rig costing you? $4000-$5000?

Under 4k. And yes I'm going to use RAID, hense the adaptec raid controller.

But for the average user, you can pick up a pair of 2TB drives for $50 each if you watch the sales, and almost every motherboard made today can do RAID 1 mirroring. And that can store a lot of picture for the average use for a very small investment.

Can anyone give their informed opinions of the 90mb/s CF cards?

I keep reading that the cards/cameras can't make use of the 90mb/s speed so it is really a bit of a gimmick. I too need to purchase some CF card(s) for my new 7D but don't want to get into overkill. I'll mainly be shooting raw.
