the durn thing does read and write that fast !!! I have a lot of USB 2 cards that I'm not in love with anymore. THANKS for that !!!
I love the Hoodman products. I was a bit dismayed to see they are no longer made in the USA, only tested in the USA. The last one I purchased proudly proclaims "Built in USA". This does not make me rate the product itself lower.
I am never going back. I bit the bullet and bought the Hoodman 1000x card. I not only never have the slightest bit of pausing when shooting with it (on my Mark III and II), but it has literally taken off 2/3 of my download times. Which means after a long wedding day, I'm not up till 3am downloading and backing up cards. While I always research value, I also value my time (and sanity) a lot, and this card was WELL worth the extra money. Oh yeah, and Hoodman has a lifetime guarantee on all their products. ?!?! Seriously the most amazing customer service. I'm a new loyalist.
