3 out of 5 eggs SanDisk could do better than this... 10/23/2009

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra 2GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card

Pros:

Coming from SanDisk, this card ought to be a good product. The low price for this much storage in a CompactFlash card is unbelievable. Performance while it worked was good and met the advertised spec nearly all of the time.

Cons:

If you plan to use this card as a boot device for a computer, you may be heading for trouble. Most CompactFlash cards in CF to IDE adapters will happily allow you to connect another IDE device as a slave on the same cable. This SanDisk card does not allow that, which can be a problem if you need to attach an optical drive to the only PATA channel in a system.

It's not possible to change the operating mode of this card if you need to do so. SanDisk does at least acknowledge that CF cards have different operating modes, but they state that they will not offer a utility to change the mode of their cards. This is something to think about if you have an older or finicky IDE controller that you plan to use this card with.

Other Thoughts:

Unfortunately, this card failed while I was working with it, so I've got to see about getting it replaced with another. As I have many SanDisk products that work very well and have proven to be excellent value for the money, I would call this an unfortunate fluke and not a common problem.
