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.

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 :sweat:

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

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
