    I used mainly Sandisk Ultra II and Extreme III CF cards (from 2 GB to 4GB). These cards did not give any problems, yet; hopefully not. As for receipts for electronic items, I file them and I don't throw receipts away.

    If I am not mistaken, lifetime warranty means the useful lifetime of the product. Not the user's lifetime.

    The lesson learnt
    1. bring more than one memory card regardless
    2. check camera, card & equipment, make sure they work seamlessly before going out to shoot
    3. keep the receipts for warranty claims

    I was thinking of getting Sandisk but this is the reason for Not getting one, in case I lose my receipt.

    Sandisk card is fast if you do burst but how many of you torture your camera with the burst mode. Phsycologically, having a fast card provides the "feel good" feeling for some.

    For me a couple of Kingston cards is fine. If ever any fails, I'll have a piece of mind about changing it without any problems. Anyway which card doesn't go dead in time?

    With Kingston, No need to worry about any receipt, No need to worry about fake stuffs.

    I'll have a piece of mind.

    Oh suuuuuuuuuure. Nobody is cloning Kingston because their products are slow and not worth cloning. Many of us got the Sandisk Extreme because it offers good value plus good speed since RAW files are getting larger by the year. The feel good factor is subjective.

    I'll have a peace of mind as well since I got my Extreme III cards from an authorised reseller and I actually make an effort to keep my receipts properly.

    I know that it is polite to ask.

    I will always be polite. Until I am confronted by someone that is either stupid or doesn't give a f**k.

    You are entitled to a replacement or repair if the device states, "life time warranty".

    Who is responsible for carrying out the replacement or repair will depend on where you live.

    Ultimately it is the manufacturer that states it on their product, but here in Australia it is also the seller of the item.

    The seller here is selling it with the claim so they are resopnsible. "ACCC takes care of this one".

    In so far as the manufacturer is concerned it is the card not the holder that carries the warranty.

    Even if you stole it and it is faulty, the manufacturer is bound to live up to their warranty.

    Don't be fooled by salespeople that can be too lazy to do their job of post sales work.

    If you have a problem with where you bought the card, email Sandisk head office and I am sure it will be sorted.

    Cheers

    P.S. I have a few different memory cards and my preferred ones are Sandisk Extreem III

    Never had any trouble with them
    Time, is an effortless construction :)
