Been doing a bit of research on the type of CF card and the speed of it

Below brand is the quite good and fast compare to others ...

128MB
---------
TRANSCEND $130 - Superpet
Ridate $95 - AP (currently out of stock in AP)
NCP $99 - Vox, SLS 6th floor (not very sure )

I'm not too sure about NCP speed but remember someone said that it's fast also
anymore input from the rest of the user ?

If you're willing to shell out $10 more, try A Computer at the 5th level of SLS.

I have the Conquest (8x) 128MB and RiData (20x) 256MB. The RiData one seems to be significantly faster than the Conquest one during the file writing process. Could conduct an proper test when I have time.

heard that NCP is like 24x and 36x when write & read.
But again, no independent source prove it .. and their "x" dont have a standard to base on.

Wow! RiData is really fast according to the charts! No wonder I don't feel much lag now....

yes, RIdata is faster compare to others .. but someone say NCP is even faster than Ridate, but no one do some test on that.

Anyway, NCP is a lot more expensive than Ridate , 95 vs 130 , I rather buy more Ridata.

Is NCP more expensive? I remembered seeing 256MB NCP going for $189 at Vox. RiData 256MB costs $195.

You didn't check before you buy?

You cn sell it if you want before the price drop further.

;p tell them you have a few friends who bought it for $95. some people were quoted $120 for it, so $100 is an okay price.

It worked fine at the beginning.... Then after that I start to get corrupted images.... Next it crashes my camera. Finally, I can't use it. Works fine on my computer tho and its still Using the FAT system... SO I guess its a compatibility issue. I've seen some guy reporting this problem with the D7 as well.
