"Removable Media" only 2/2/2012 2:36:51 AM

Pros: The price/performance ratio of these cards is fine, and I haven't had any failures with the three of them I own.

Cons: I purchased these cards to boot Linux on some old Pentium IV micro ATX boards I had around. Unfortunately these cards are reported to the BIOS as "removable media". Many boards are capable of booting from removable media tagged flash memory, but many more are not. I found that the much faster (and much more expensive) SanDisk cards (N82E16820171416) work on my old machines. Oh well. They're functioning fine as backup CF cards for my Canon 5D

Overall Review: The write performance on these cards is nothing to write home about. The read performance is better, but I wouldn't call it 60MB/s maybe 30 sustained. For the price, they're fine in some applications.

Great with CF to SATA adapter 1/6/2012 8:09:15 AM

Comments: I used this card in a cheap CF to SATA adapter as an SSD alternative. It is running in a Giada Cube Atom 1.6GHz box as an Ubuntu 11.04 MythTV frontend. The read speeds doubled over the previously installed hard drive to 50 MB/sec when tested with hdparm.

Not for Pro Photography 10/27/2011 7:59:55 AM

Comments: Card works fine, but they should re-evaluate the speed and put the correct speed on their product...I am very disappointed with this card because I bought for the speed factor and it is simply not very fast. Go with a better name brand if you are taking pictures with this card.

a fast 8G for cheap 9/14/2011 11:48:20 PM

Comments: Installed a new Mythbuntu backend to the card and so far it's working like a champ. I hope the price comes down some more. This is the perfect size for a boot drive (with some extra room just in case).

Boots reliably in old and new PCs 9/14/2011 1:01:10 PM

Comments: Memory has an "infant mortality" rate. If you get a bad one just return it.

If you want screaming fast CF cards for pro work, buy screaming fast CF cards for pro work. (They boot nicely too, but at that price point you can buy complete SSDs instead.)
