Has anyone used the following 128GB CompactFlash Memory Cards from RiData/RiTek? My sole experience with this brand is with their blank CDs and DVDs.

I learned about these really "low" cost memory cards from another forum when I asked about 128GB CF cards selling for under $200.

On the forum I was linked to this site http://www.mydigitaldi​scount.com …sh+Card&xsearch​_e12=128GB (external link)

Not buying from them as it means import duties charges if I ship em to where I am currently at and I have found the local distributor.

Robgalbraith.com benchmarked the RiData 600x cards performing within a permissible range. I would assume the 1000x, 800x and 400x will be as consistent, hopefully.

Note:

- Not associated with RiData, RiTek or their resellers
- Just want to get end-user feedback for this sub-$200 128GB CompactFlash memory card from actual owners.
- Yes, I know the maxim of not "putting all your eggs in one basket". Same was said back in 2003 when 128MB (Megabyte) memory cards were $100 and 1GB cards were $1,000.
- Not spamming forums. I just want end-user feedback. There are no reviews on RiData's 400x, 800x or 1000x lines of CompactFlash memory cards.

Never heard of them. I will stick with the reliable brand names. If your work is important, why cheap out on a no name card?

Thoughts on the 128GB & 64GB Transcend CF cards? It appears RiDATA has no representation here.

hi, some of my friends in the media use them and 4 of them have had ridata fail on them while on a shoot. although after reformatting the cards, they were back to normal and my friends continue to use the same cards.

no idea on the read/write speeds though.


well hello
