The main advantage of x600 is the speed it takes to dump the card onto the computer. IMO.
I've never found transfer speeds to be an issue. I set up the destination folder, plug the card in, and import them w/ Lightroom. I then go on and do other things until they're done.
@mag10, if your buying 8gb 60mbs CF cards for $40, you either need them right now, and there's no sale going on, or your just paying too much. I bought Lexar Pro 16gb 400x (60mbs) cards last year for $50/each. Granted, that was a good deal a year ago, but it seems like the normal price now. That being said, I did see an Extreme 8gb 60mbs card in Staples for $49.99 yesterday. It was the only CF card they had!
