PNY 16GB Compact Flash card only £14.97 instore @ Currys & PCWorld

Found 4th Feb 2010Made hot 5th Feb 2010
I was in Currys this afternoon picking up an order and found these 16GB CF PNY cards for only £14.97

The cards are rated at 10 Mb/s which is fine for all but the latest cameras

They also had the 8GB & 4GB cards marked down to only £9.97 which is also a pretty good price if your local store has sold out

Popped next door to PCWorld and they had the same cards marked at the same price as well

This is easily the cheapest I have ever seen a 16GB CF card anywhere

I'm haven't used the PNY brand myself, but they seem to be carried by some big companies and I'm sure they are a better bet than buying a cheap knock off from Ebay

I found these in the Longfield retail park in Tunbridge Wells, for some reason they have a Currys and a PCWorld side by side there

Both stores had them in stock

I bought two (the last two) at the Holborn branch at lunchtime today.

None in Carmarthen. The girl behind the counter checked stock in other stores - the closest stock was in Cardiff. Bummer.

good deal, got a 8gb pny of the net for £19 and thought that was cheap!!!! excellent deal if you can find stock.

Just got 2x16gb for camera. (Tunbridge Wells - 2x16gb, 2x8gb and a few 2 & 4gb left)

Well I forgot that me and the missus were taking our sons to Cardiff to see the Doctor Who exhibition on Saturday... popped in to pc world in culverhouse cross - no stock, but there was one a few doors down in Currys. Bingo! 16gb What a bargain. The stock computer showed there was still 2 in currys.digital in Cardiff town centre if anyone wants one.

Anyone aware of the largest CF Card a Dell Axim X50V will take.
Have looked for ages myself but no joy on Google.:oops:

The reason its cheap is because it writes at 60x This is not fast, Anyone using a high end motordrive camera like a Nikon D3 or a video camera like a RED 1 may struggle, When shooting high speed or HD videoyou will drop frames and get distortion due to the compression you need to clear the buffer fast so the faster you get your information to memmory the better, The Sandisk Extreme IV writes at 266x which most profesionals use but that will cost you for a 16 gig about £300, However if your not shooting Video and your not in a hurry and not shooting large images Its OK to play with. You won't find these in better camera shops.

I checked my local Currys for this and was told the oxford st and lakeside branches had stock...
I went to the oxford st branch last thursday (11th Feb) and they had one left that was reserved...
Today (18th Feb) I was able to find one in the lakeside branch...

That's a bit of an exaggeration there - yes this won't be good when for shooting high speed but if you're spending 10K+ on a camera/video setup and need it for high speed shooting then I suspect you'll know to be buying a high speed card. I use a 16GB 10Mb/s card in a D700 and its performance is entirely acceptable for every day use even with a few burst sequences as the camera can shoot at high speed until the buffer is full. Also I have a much slower SDHC card for a GH1 which can record 1080p video without any dropped frames or image quality issues. For high speed shooting I simply keep a faster card when I need the extra performance.
