    i went to look at their website at the warranty section. it seems that their defective product return procedure pretty troublesome..quite formal. need to email them to get a RMA number, then after that wait for their reply and confirmation, then u got to send in ur product in 30 days, then after that wait another 14days for the product to be return to u.

    For kingston one, i just go to their office and they exchange on the spot...

    i would rather go for a kingston anytime..

    The write speed is slow lah. Now at the M.O thread, the Ridata 150X CF seems better.
    From Pentax to 4/3, back to Pentax and then back to M4/3 !?!?

    I am not very certain if Sandisk Extreme III can make the difference in many cameras. Often it might be the camrea read/write speed that is the limiting factor now. Anyone has really achieved faster speed switching from Ultra II to Extreme III?

    Not sure if some of those 150x eg A-data Turbo, Ridata 150X are no less slower than Extreme III assuming there is a camera benefiting at their speed.

    Check the specs, some more expensive model can withstand more extreme temperature if you are going to shoot below freezing...so the extra cost is inevitable

    Huh? 4GB Extreme III at $140???
    Bought mine at COMEX at $240

    And furthermore, I regretted it too, I don't think any camera, especially mine, writes at that speed anyway.

    No camera can ever write close to full speed. You're using a 5D right ? High end cam! Sandisk is a good match for it. No regrets

    Such cards will only stretch its legs with a good USB/FW reader
