Great Card and Value in this size

ADATA 32GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model SPEEDY CF 32G
ADATA 32GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model SPEEDY CF 32G

Pros: Works well when shooting in my new Canon 50D. I decided size was more important than speed. This card lives up to that desire and it seems speedy enough in camera. I've shot about 200 pics (RAW+JPEG) without any issue. Probably cheaper than buying 16 2GB cards. I've used Adata cards in the past without any issue, so I hope the same remains true with this card.

Cons: Read speeds are a little sluggish at times -- especially if I try to delete files via Windows. Considering the price point, really not a huge deal. Considered going only 4 eggs -- but decided to give it 5 because of price point. I would probably rate it 4.5 eggs or 9 out of 10 if possible.

Overall Review: I specifically got this card for the size -- 32MB -- for shooting in RAW or RAW+JPEG. Considering RAW files of 50D are about 20MB and the JPEG is 5MB -- that's about 25MB per shot that gets consumed. I needed something with a LOT of space. At 32GB, I get well over 1000 shots in even RAW+JPEG best quality mode - which rocks. I was initially concerned about speed, write speeds seem very good in my camera. Download/delete seem a little slow. With CF, speed demands a higher price. If you need a faster card -- pay the extra $$$ to get it (or compromise on size). For my general style of photography, this is more than adequate. I won't worry about Adata vs "name brand". I've used Adata brand CF cards in the past without any problems, so I have high hopes for this card.

Great Card and Value

Transcend 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TS16GSDHC6
Transcend 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TS16GSDHC6

Pros: 16GB! Class 6 (fast). Not expensive.

Cons: None, especially considering the price.

Overall Review: A great bargain at that price I paid. I use this card in an SD-CF adapter (must get that another place) for my Canon 50D and it works wonderfully. Even keeps up with burst mode. I've taken over 600 pictures with this card at time of review and I don't seem to be missing any.
