Cons: uses MLC instead of SLC flash

Pros: cheapdecent speeds
I bought this to use a a boot drive for my pfSense box (CF to SATA adapter). Benchmarks show it reads at around 19MB/s which isn't that great but good enough. Uses MLC NAND flash which means it might die a lot sooner but for $17, it's still worth it.

Cons: Slow for Full HD video

Pros: Cheap, no failure (yet..)
I bought this card as it was cheap and intended to use it as a backup if my main CF card is full. Sadly this one is not fast enough for my Canon 7D while recording Full HD video(30fps). It records some time but full the internal memory buffer and after that the video just stop recording.So I gave this card to my wife and it works perfectly with her Canon 40D as the resolution is less than the 7D. I can't complain on that point.So bottom line: perfectly fine card for consumer grade DSLR but invest more in a faster CF card if you have a pro or semi-pro DSLR.

Cons: - none

Pros: - Size and price
I love this memory card and today I am purchasing a second one since it is on sale. This item comes up for sale fairly regularly so watch for it. Speed is good and it keeps up with my Sony A700. It is nice to have large cards when shooting in RAW. I have enough memory already for a full day of shooting but an extra 8 Gig would be nice to have. Never lost a photo, never had a problem with this card.

Cons: none yet

Pros: good pricegood speeds8GB
seems like a good purchase so far, popped it in my camera and works fine, seems quick and got 8GB storage, i have heard of people having corrupt files after a while with this cf card, i will see if that happens, but otherwise i think its best bang for buck out there, as i didnt want to spend over $70 for a sandisk or lexar

Cons: None so far.

Pros: Low Price, Reliable
Being a wedding photographer I am always needing to stock up on compact flash cards. Purchased a few of these a while back as the price really caught my eye. I use a Canon 5D Mark II and have yet to have any issues with these. They seem a little slow when comparing them to the Sandisk Ultra II but not a big deal to me as I don't shoot video and they let me do my job.

Cons: None for my purpose

Pros: Solid, functions as it should, price (during a sale)
I set out to buy a CF card as my gf's car's head unit had a slot that would play music off of it. I looked around and at the time, this one was cheapest so I sprung on it as a backup to one I had picked up earlier. This one is used entirely for audio books. And it performs perfectly. We've taken it through some pretty cold temperatures this winter and it hasn't flinched. For playing .mp3 files from it, it is quite adequate. I do notice it's not as quick as my other one for transferring files TO the card but we're not talking anything meaningfully significant.

Cons: None

Pros: Price, 8GB, Speed
Great card. I bought these when they were on sale for $25, and well worth the money. 8GB is plenty big enough for me since I would rather have many cards instead of one really large one. That way if it dies I loose a lot less then I would with a 32GB or 64GB card.Speed is constant, and fast enough for my XTi, but could be faster for my 5D mark II. But for the amount I paid, still well worth it.I own 3 of these now, (one of them over 1 yr running) and would recomend them, Kingston makes quality Compact Flash cards.

Cons: probably not as fast as 133x shows

Pros: Large, decent speed, good brand
This is a great card. Kingston is a very reliable brand and this card is very well priced especially on sale. At 133x this card is much faster than the slow no speed rating ones. But in use, it does not seem to be as fast as 133x indicates. I guess it is more about read speed, writing speed is probably slower. Either way, great product, I probably like Sandisk one best, but Kingston is much better than a no name or less name brand.

Cons: -bit slow

Pros: -on sale-big space for camera
I needed a compact flash card for my old slr so I got this 8gb oone, since it was on sale and 133x isnt TERRIBLY slow.Viewing my pictures, it is slow, but bearable. At least like the review below me, it isn't that A-DATA CRAP. I probably can't even view pictures using that POS.

Review Date: 06/29/09
Cons: - a bit slow

Pros: - good deal when on sale
Its a decent card for a camera. Not the fastest thing out there (have my doubts about the 133x - yeah "peak rating"). Works in my camera and for the price can't complain. When it goes for the sale price, its a great bargain (IMO better quality than the A-data card that is pretty cheap on NCIX)

Review Date: 05/04/09
Cons: none

Pros: It works in my camera Olympus E-620 and the card reader can read it just fine.
It's reasonably fast enough. It was $50 before sale, now it's 27.99 so a good deal. Works with my camera and card reader.
