5 out of 5 eggsvery impressed

Pros: ANTonline is a good company. They took care of my problem and they sent the product within 2 business days of me ordering it. I will order from them again.

Cons: I have owned Kingston products before and I am sure this was just an error, but this specific product was defective. I am ordering a new one to test it out. This has nothing to do with ANTonline as the company resolved my problem quickly.

3 out of 5 eggswont work in d4s

Pros: works fine in the older models...

Cons: but d4s will not accept it. Kind of a bummer. Still a decent card for other models.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Brad,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. According to Nikon support, the D4s has the same storage card compatibility as the D4, so the card should work in a D4s if is works in a D4. Evidently, that is not the case here. We are here to help and can troubleshoot with you to find a resolution. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

2 out of 5 eggsFrequent errors on video writing

Pros: Current cost
Card goes a long way

Cons: Creates errors often when writing video and you lose the video

Other Thoughts: I can't believe these are only $19 now! I think they were much more when I bought this card a few or several years ago.

I am very disappointed in these cards. There have been multiple times within the last year that these cards have had some kind of card reading error while writing a video (using it in a Canon 7D). This, in the end, means that the video is completely lost. Luckily, it has not ruined the entire card, yet.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi J,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the CompactFlash card. If you have not already, I recommend formatting the card in your camera and see if the errors continue. If they do or have, then we can replace the card under it's lifetime warranty. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

2 out of 5 eggsCompatibility issues

Pros: Good price, good speed in compatible devices

Cons: Worked great in my older camera, but doesn't work in my new D800.

Other Thoughts: I tend to buy only name brand items to avoid problems like this. This is the first time Kingston let me down. Still works great in my D300, so I'll leave it with that camera.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: n/a

Cons: DOA - using a CF->SATA adapter, bios detects it as an 8GB card, and on boot it shows as a 0GB size. Replacing the CF card with another one works fine in the same adapter.

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for the issue you are having. If you have not yet contacted Newegg, please call our Support Staff at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and one of our Technical Support Representatives will assist you. Please be sure to have the part on hand if you call in.

1 out of 5 eggsIncompatible with new camera

Pros: This card was well-priced when I bought it last year for use in a D3s camera.

Cons: Incompatible with my new Nikon D800, which makes this card useless.

Other Thoughts: I thought Compact Flash was standardized until I tried to use this existing CF card in a new camera! Poor engineering is my guess. I think Kingston took some shortcuts because all other manufacturers' cards seem to work in the D800 (including the lesser known brands.) But, NONE of Kingston's CF or SD cards will work in Nikon's newer high res D-SLR! Unbelievably disappointing.

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for the issue you are having. We have fixed this compatibility issue. Please call our Support Staff at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and one of our Technical Support Representatives will assist you. Please be sure to have the part on hand if you call in.

5 out of 5 eggsA great choice.

Pros: I bought 6 of these memory cards when they first became available. They have NEVER FAILED. I have shot over 50,000 shots through Canon 30D, 40D, 5DmkII. I use it for both still and video on the 5DmkII, NO FAILURES. If you follow the camera manufacturers instructions to turn the camera off before you INSERT or REMOVE, you'll be surprised at how "memory failures" don't happen.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: For the person that lost 1000's of irreplaceable shots in a 3 day period, unless you were on a lunar expedition, the shots are probably replaceable. Back up your shots more often.

2 out of 5 eggsdisappointed

Pros: seemed fast, cheap, large capacity

Cons: unreliable

Other Thoughts: I bought this card thinking I just had a great deal as I thought Kingston was a reputable company (at least in PC memory). I needed a fast large capacity card for model shoots and sports. It was going great for about 3000 shots and then it essentially died. I can't format it anymore and picture taking is impossible. I've never been let down by a Sandisk but wanted cheaper. Lesson learned.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent price for performance

Pros: Excellent card, used for my D300. Now I shoot everything in RAW.

Cons: Luckily came the same day as a wedding I was shooting! Thought it'd be here fastest, not a negative to the card, but thought Newegg would be faster.

Other Thoughts: Wish it were 32Gig
