    Sandisk is pretty good. Personally im using a Sandisk Ultra 16GB CF. Served me well so far, but keep in mind, try not to use a cheap card reader, if possible.

    I have used Lexar, Kingston, Transcend and Sandisk before and they are all pretty ok except that my Sandisk failed once and have to go to the agent to get it replaced.

    Most people will swear by Sandisk and avoid Kingston. But in my case, my 3 Kingston cards were functioning perfectly while my Sandisk failed me.
