Just found these on 7day shop, they claim UDMA x300 speeds & are a good price?

They should be good being from Duracell (if they aren't rebadged?)

I only use the batteries :-).
I only buy Lexar or Sandisk cards, cause I think they have the highest ratings.

Maybe you could take a look at mymemory.com, they have alot of CF cards.

I'll have a look at the site thanks, these are a good price sorta in the middle between the cheap brands & the more expensive sandisk/lexar ones, if they are any good?

Put quite simply: I'm fairly certain that Duracell does not actually make any flash memory products and that the cards are simply rebadged from another company.
My bet is that they are either from AData or Transcend originally.

No facts in my guess, just simply a guess.

Why yes, I am a jerk. Thank you for asking.

I think it would be wise to stay with a somewhat known brand just to be safe .

Seems these are very new to the market, if made by Transcend would be a very good price (if the speed rating lives up) but as said if made by a lesser name then would be a markup & not so good!

May well just go for the lexar x233's instead

Thanks all :)

I was just looking at these on a US site. Has anyone tried them yet or found any test data?

I use Lexar or Sandisk for precious shots I can't afford to lose to a so-so card. To save money, I'd watch for periodic sales at B&H or Adorama, even Amazon.
