Sandisks work the way every consumer product should work...perfectly.

Make no mistake , Sandisk has some problems too and are not perfect as are any brand . Sandisk are priced much higher than other brands . Is it possable their much higher price makes people think they are much better ? I would like to see some sort of solid stats to prove that , I'm betting the results might surprise a few brand loyal users .

I'm only speaking from personal experience. I'm on my 2nd DSLR (first one was 300D) and I have not had one single problem with any Sandisks. And I've taken in excess of 25,000 pictures, and I tend to do a lot of card swap outs before they are full. Unless things go down the tubes for Sandisk I will never buy anything but them. No reason to in my opinion.

Whenever I hear from those in charge of handling large scale product returns for things like memory cards, they all say that Sandisk have the fewest problems.

In fact, a few weeks I watched a Roadshow photography seminar that echoed the same thing.

Sandisk is the name that comes up every time for quality and reliability.

That said, odds are you won't have a problem with ANY card maker you choose. That is if you are just playing the odds.

I have only used Sandisk and Lexar (CF and SD) and have never had a card failure of any kind. With that history I will continue to stick with those two brands. To me it's just not worth the savings to risk using a cheap card considering the cost isn't that high to begin with. I have a lot of cards and number each card and after one week of use I swap them out to the next higher number. After I've gone through them all, I start using card 1 again. I do this out of habit - not from any knowledge that a card can wear out. Again as stated earlier, I've never had a card failure.

I been looking to get another CF card a 16GB I noticed that on Amazon the spec for the Transcend 16GB is Read_90 MB/sec (Max), Write_60 MB/sec (Max)
But on New egg the spec's are
Read up to 60MB/s Write Speed:up to 30MB/s.

That's a big difference anyone know what kind of sped there getting out of this card.
