This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 8GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model SDCFX-008G-A61

Pros:

UDMA CF cards are some of the fastest cards available on the market. If you're considering this card, and are willing to spend the $$$ on it, you will most likely not be disappointed.

However, as noted, please be aware.. the performance will depend entirely on your gear (camera or otherwise). Just because you buy a Ferrari engine, and have it mounted in your Gremlin, doesn't mean it's going to perform like a Ferrari.

Do everyone a favor, and ignore the 'Scamdisk' comment below... the user based their review on an unrealistic expectation. Additionally, I'd encourage everyone to research the equipment you're using before investing highly into it.

Cons:

Price. As with any current UDMA type CF cards, the price is a bit steeper than normal CF. For some, the speed these cards produce, will not outweigh the price.

Other Thoughts:

If you're a professional photographer that uses an of the prosumer to pro level camera bodies, do yourself a favor.. and try to find another local photographer to check the UDMA speeds out. For some photographers (like myself), the longer speed bursts will be beneficial.

For example, I occasionally am asked to do some player shots for sports teams. Starting your burst of photos as a player begins their movement can occasionally turn into disappointment, as you start your review process. Sometimes you'll get a shot that would have been great.... if you'd JUST caught those last few moments...

The ability to snap your shots off.. without ever having to worry about a red LED telling you to 'wait' is amazing.
