This is a good price but name and speed are misleading as this isn't really a high speed card, if you look at the write speed (which is normally the important part) you'll see it's just 9mb/s which means in reailty this is a 65x speed card.

The Lexar they have might be a better buy, while it has a lower read speed dropping it to just 80x it's stated as having 80x write as well which means a higher 12MB/s speed:

I do have a few of these Mymemory cards and they work fine for cheap high capacity storage however don't buy them if you're needing a high speed card. Admittedly I haven't compared the write speeds against a Sandisk Ultra III even though I do find it odd that the read speed can be double the write speed, my camera has a fairly large buffer so I can usually capture what I need in there and just wait for the buffer to clear.

interesting :thinking:, i have XBMC, does the HDD make that much noise? i thought it was the fan?
#7
I find it's the optical drive followed by the fans that make the most noise with the Xbox.

Excellent Price......Just bought One.

Many Thanks

Voted HOT!

good buy.

beware of Lexar. They are very lax at publishing speeds of their cards.

By all accounts Lexars SSD cards are actually sheep in wolfs clothing. Charging SSD prices for nearer SD speed. Maybe Lexars compact flash are better but they certainly need to improve their reputation!!!!!!!!!

You can probably put big slow fan in there..
#11
would this work on older cameras?? I've yet to upgrade my Nikon coolpix 3100!!!
#12
Good find. Is this PRO Compact Flash Card different to normal CF cards? I am guessing they've not changed the size or dimensions of the PRO cf card have they? I only ask as sony called they cards Sony-Magicgate first then created new memory called Sony-Magicgate PRO DUO cards.
#13
Does anyone know if either the Lexar or MyMemory cards support DMA access ?
#14
I've got a UDMA enabled expresscard cf reader and of the cards I have the fastest is the extreme IV, then 30mb/s extreme III, then 20mb/s extreme III, then this card noticably slower still - I've had no problems with it in terms of reliability though, so if speed isn't an issue it's a good price - may get one myself ps the PRO means nothing size wise.

No - pro is only what they call it, it's just a run of the mill card, it wont be as fast as Sandisk cards....

Just what i needed at a great price. Don't need speed .. just need raw capacity !! ..
#17
hi guys is this fast enough for the EOS 400d to shoot in continous at 10mp fine+raw?

Thanks
#18
No, to be honest I doubt any memory card is as the 400D does not support UDMA - you haven't mentioned shooting speed though, even then I don't think this card is fast enough to write a single jpeg+raw per second.

I'm not a Canon person though so I'm not 100% sure, using this card with my E-3 and shooting 5fps jpeg (7MB filesize), once the camera uses up its buffer that's pretty much it in terms of burst shooting as it takes a good few seconds to clear the buffer.

I'd be looking at the Sandisk Ultra III as at 20Mb/s (twice the speed of this one), I think it's the fastest you can go without UDMA.

Just so you guys know, these cards are considerably slower. I normally use the Sandisk Extreme III, which from a full camera buffer on my 40D takes 18 seconds to write to the card, these cards do it in 30 seconds.

So as said above, if speed isn't an issue, go for it. but they aren't really X133, as the Sandisk Extreme III are X133 based on their mb/s transfer rates...

They're 133x read, about 65x speed write so the speed is a little misleading - on paper they're about half the speed of the Sandisk Ultra III's which seems about right, seems to take an age to clear a full buffer.

However you don't always need high speeds (I keep a high speed card with me when I do) and most of the time I have one of these cards in my camera.

I wanted to do a quick return post on here about my experiences with this memory card and with MyMemory.

The card arrived at the end of last week (speedy delivery). I used it on Saturday to shoot a really important family event I was attending. Once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing. I must have got about 100 shots off, before my camera started acting all weird and showing an error I had never seen before. I put my old smaller capacity card back in and all was fine. But the MyMemory card in, and the error occurred again. As it transpires, it looks like I've lost then entire days priceless photos because this card has errored.

Unfortunately, it doesn't even look like the kind of error you can recover from with recovery software. The card simply is not recognised by either the camera, or with an external card reader.

I have asked that MyMemory send me a replacement card. I requested a similar capacity, but of a different make - as these MyMemory branded cards are potentially faulty and flawed and I will never trust it again.

Bottom line for me is that, if you can't ensure that the card you're selling isn't going to be 100% reliable, you shouldn't be selling it - for a cheap price or not. These cards have to hold priceless and irreplaceable data. A faulty card is simply not an option.

Buyer beware!

Unfortunately, you get what you pay for.
If data integrity is important, then consider a "pro" card like the Sandisk Extreme IV - http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/3593372/SanDisk-8GB-Compact-Flash-Extreme-IV-Card/Product.html
It costs a few quid, but it'll always be reliable !
