    Kingston and Transcend. Value for money performance with lifetime warranty compared to overpriced Sandisk 2 years warranty.

    hmm if i'm not wrong, sandisk has been giving 5 yrs warranty for some time. and i think they have moved on to lifetime warranty.

    anyway I'm using transcend 16gb 133x, more value for $$ to go for transcend =x

    I didnt check with the agent or the vector magnetics which u mention, also didnt check the kingston warrenty status, its just a information which i see on website so i just post out... Maybe u r correct... But i dont think it matters a lot, or at least to me, 5 years is way more than enough..

    Coz nowadays the camera and stuffs getting more and more pixels, while cards getting cheaper and cheaper.. Personally i dun use the 512mb SD card which i bought 4-5 years ago for almost 2 year, even if the 512mb card is spoilt, i think even buying a new 2gb card which cost ard $10 is better well spend than the transport fees, effort and time to repair the 512mb card... CF cards are slightly more expensive than SD cards, but prices are falling much also... I dont think anyone will use a card for a lifetime, or much ppl will use a card for 10 years..

    Above is just my views... Im just trying to say 5 years warrenty is more than enough for cards, at least for me...

    Lifetime warranty of kingston is no good to me when I took shots at low temperature (around 5 degree) oven on their extreme line (which they claim can withstand up to freezing temperature, O degree celcius) and the content of the card is corrupted.
    They just replace the card for me, but my pictures are gone!

    So what good is that?
    Sandisk is now my trusted choice, even when they only give warranty for 1 year.

    Default Re: which type of cf card you all use.

    I use Sandisk Ultra II 4GB cards and Sandisk extreme Card reader. I find this gives me the best price-performance. I don't shoot raw so my files are relatively small. However as there are a lot of images, I want to have a high transfer speed and this is where the extreme card reader comes in.

    I use to use the low end Kingston and el-cheapo card reader. Performance improved significantly after the upgrade.
