Was looking for CF card and found these, good deal? No? $99.99 for 3 16GB CF. B&H is selling them for $40ish each.

It depends on your camera and shooting style. If you do lots of continuous shooting it might be too slow. 200x is kind of slow these days. Not sure about the price.

wow, pretty good price, B&H had them for $50/each last week. The card is fine, I've never used mine in a burst mode but given Lexar's conservatism with speed ratings I think it should be fine for most shooters.

The speed is 30MB/s which matches the new Sandisk Ultra or older Extreme III cards and is quite fast unless you are trying to fill up a card at 8-10fps. A Single Sandisk Ultra 16GB card is $64, so I would say these are a great price.

I would call that a good deal. Had I not just bought 4 Lexar Pro 400x 16gb cards, I'd probably be interested. Although, shooting at 8fps w/ my 7D, they fill up rather quickly. I may need to go for a couple of 32gb instead.

I bought a couple of these back when they went on sale for under $30. I've used them in both the 7D and 5D doing stills and video with no problems.

I also purchased one back when they were $30. Used it with my 7D (video and stills) with no problems (knock on wood).

not a huge price difference considering the fluctuation in prices of those cards.

Lexar isn't cheap, Sandisk is just usually overpriced.

I bought two of these a while ago. Although they may be rated at the same speed as the Extreme III's, they seem to be slower in my 5D. Not sure why.

dunno. I had a 16GB 200X start corrupting my RAW files.
I'm back to shooting with a 1GB 133X Lexar while I await my RMA - or a good sandisk deal. :confused:

I don't know too much about transfer speed. I'm really contemplating this buy though. Would the 200x (30mb/sec) be enough for today's DSLRs?

Is the general consensus that 30mb/sec is too slow if you're doing burst shots at 8-10fps? Video would be fine, correct? Someone point me in the right direction please. Thank you.

Burst shots go to buffer, so card speed only dictates how fast your buffer clears to the flash card and you can start shooting again. The fastest cards out there are 90MB/s, but they are pricey.

I guess the question is how often are you filling your buffer? If, like me, the answer is very rarely, then you will be fine with just about any card.
