5 out of 5 eggsHOW-TO setup a bootdisk on CF

This review is from: Transcend 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS16GCF133

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: These chips have a finite life for writing. If you are going to run your OS
off this chip, you should minimize/prevent unnecessary writes.

I cannot inform you how-to configure Microsoft OSes. IMHO, their file system design is so disorganized that they didn't configure folders/directories to be read-write or read-only.

I CAN tell you how to configure a Linux or BSD system to use this CF chip with a Syba SATA2CF or IDE2CF controller. If you follow these suggested configs, your chip should last years like mine ( >3 1/2 years )

1) set noatime for the root partition in /etc/fstab for mounts, to prevent writing the last-access time in the files inode table for every file i/o.

2) move /var, move /tmp, and move /home all to another partition on a true RMS disk drive. These directories all receive too many writes. Then, your root partition will contain the mostly read-only directories like /usr, /bin, /sbin, /lib, /mnt, /dev, /etc, /opt, /root, /sys

5 out of 5 eggsto NeoAmsterdam with the DEAD CF

This review is from: Transcend 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS16GCF133

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: Neo... on your dead-after-2-mos chip: did you turn down most writes? These chips have a finite life for writing. If you are going to run your OS off this chip, you should: 1) set noatime for the root partition in the fstab for mounts, to prevent writing the last-access time for every file i/o. 2) move /var and /home to another partition on a RMS drive... too many writes. If you do those suggested configs, your chip should last years like mine (3 1/2 years)

1 out of 5 eggsFine while it lasted

This review is from: Transcend 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS16GCF133

Pros: Relatively cheap for the storage size.

Cons: Dead after two months use in an embedded system (read "other thoughts"). Marketed as 16gB (base 1000) but actual formatted capacity is barely 15GB (base 1024).

Other Thoughts: I bought this CF card for use as a boot/root drive in an embedded system. Installing the OSs was painfully slow, but it was responsive enough as a boot/root drive.

It took 90 minutes to install FreeDOS with source code and almost four hours to install Fedora 14 with a full development compliment (GCC, Eclipse, MySQL, Apache, and MediaWiki; no swap). The CF card was running fine as a primary drive; a bit slower than I would have liked, but otherwise perfectly fine.

Then, after about two months of use, the CF card dropped dead. I have no idea what caused it to fail - All I know is that all the data it held is gone (good thing I had backups) and that the card won't work anymore.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat right out the box

This review is from: Transcend 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS16GCF133

Pros: really good value for a 16gb card. perfect for the untrained photographer where speed isnt a huge problem.

Cons: slower than my older sandisk EXTREME III 2gb- that matters when you want to quickly review shots in the heat of action.

Other Thoughts: if blazing speed isnt a big deal, then this is for you

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with IPod Mini

This review is from: Transcend 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS16GCF133

Pros: Works right out of the box, I bought this to replace the 4GB hard drive inside an Ipod Mini. It plus straight in and within 5 minutes i went from having a 4GB ipod mini to a 16GB Ipod mini. Been working great so far.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsDon't believe the speed hype

This review is from: Transcend 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS16GCF133

Pros: Worked out of the box in my Rebel XTi and the 7d I rented for a week. Ran into the buffer once on the 7d and haven't yet on my XTi, both shooting raw+jpg. No read errors.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Do your research! There is WAY too much misinformation on the internet about card speeds and recording HD video. After doing my own research, I purchased this card with confidence that it would perform. It did that and then some. 1080-30p recorded without a hiccup across several videos in varying lengths from ~30sec to several minutes.

Yes, if you've spoiled yourself with keeping your camera on burst mode, you -will- run into buffer issues with this card. It's the nature of the beast, you're not paying for a high speed card (keeping your camera in burst mode won't help you get better shots; I'm looking at you, armchair photographer!). Pro's shouldn't even be considering this card, esp. the sports/action type.

For casual/nautre/lanscape shots and the occasional video, this card does the job and does it well, for quite an affordable price.

4 out of 5 eggsNice CF card

This review is from: Transcend 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS16GCF133

Pros: Works well and has decent speed. Does the job with my Canon EOS SLR.

Cons: Needs to be formatted in order to work with the photo machines at places like Target or Walmart. Machine could not read the card until I reformatted the CD card. Not sure if that's normal or not.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm

This review is from: Transcend 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS16GCF133

Pros: Good value (Gb/$), more than fast enough for my use (I'm using it as a replacement for the 4Gb microdrive in an iPod mini) - an awesome upgrade for a reasonable cost. Plugs right in and works!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: While this is a 133x card, I have a 266x Transcend CF card (4Gb) that I use for photography (10 megapixel DSLR). Have not had any issues whatsoever with that card either (in use for a couple of years), and it keeps up with the multi-shot setting (about 7-8 rapidfire shots at ~3 per second before slowing down a little).
