    I have had strange image corruption problems in Kingston before. Since then I'm strictly on Sandisk and Lexar..

    I have all Sandisk,Transcend, Kingston and Lexar. The 1st professional card I used was Lexar at that time a 1GB WA 80X selling close to $200 LOL.

    To me they are all reliable so far no card disappointed me yet. The only different is their speed but I am not that concern over speed but price and transcend offer a good price.

    Using kingston and sandisk. So far its been a year, and the kingston CF works as it should. No issues whatsoever, but I still stick to sandisk for weddings and important events

    SANDISK ftw! But that's only because I haven't tried others before.

    Sandisk or Lexar. My Kingston card keeps corrupting for some reason.

    hmm... i ever wondered about the differences... i've been using kingston, to the shock of a handful of other photographers who swear by sandisk.

    historically, is it really that problematic, kingston?

    Price, price, price.

    I voted for EVERY card mentioned. I use these cards for general purposes. I am not a pro. And there are countless stories of FAKE high end cards that fail .. esp for Sandisk.

    As long as it is reasonably priced and reliable, I guess all these cards serves their purpose.

    BTW I have used Sandisk (not Extreme 4 but most of the others), Lexar (not the 300X though), Kingston, Transcend, Toshiba etc ... whatever ... even brands like Ridata and some others I can't even remember (from the days of 128 Mb until now).

    Never had a failure.
