Amazon deal of the day. One example is 32Gb Extreme 45Mb/s class 10 is $25. Less than a dollar a Gig which is a good buy.

No good Sandisk CF deals.

Been checking out 1000x CF cards. Komputerbay 32gb 1000x is looking like a deal compared to the Lexars.

$279 for a 480 GB SSD though. Amazing how much prices have come down.

Komputerbay cards do look like a great deal but are you brave enough to trust them with your files? :D Too many complaints about lost files on these cards…

The latest price of $199 for 2-pack of 32GB Lexar 1000x CF cards on Amazon is really good and the lowest to date: http://www.amazon.com/​gp/product/B007DBJ2YE (external link)

I bought the 2-pack of 16gb Lexar x1000 from Buydig yesterday for $99. There is a $10 off $100 ("EndofYear10") if you get a cheap filler item.

I also upgraded the firmware on my transcend USB 3.0 reader. Read a couple horror stories on corruption with UDMA 7 on some readers,

I upgraded the firmware on Transcend USB 3.0 Super Speed Multi-Card Reader for SD/SDHC/SDXC/MS/CF Cards (TS-RDF8K) from TS15 to TS22

Not sure what card readers everyone else has, but I suggest looking up the model number and verifying you are on latest firmware.

Lexar 1000x CF cards use Taiwanese company, SMI, controller, NAND from Micron. SMI sells controller and FW as a package, little development involvement from Lexar except testing and qualification.

Komputerbay CF also uses the same SMI controller and Micro NAND. Granted Lexar being a larger company, they may have a tigher testing and qualification procedure from Komputerbay. Other than that, they have basically the same hardware and firmware
