Most Liked Positive Review


Quick write speeds

Best compact flash card I have used for the Nikon D300 and D700 when it comes to sports photography


Most Liked Negative Review


It was rated such a good card :(

I used the card on my first shoot with my 5D Mark ii that I purchased. Only about 60% of my images would transfer over to my computer. After about 2 hours on the phone with SanDisk and Rescue Pro, they figured out it must be a bad sector in the card. Unfortunately there was nothing I could do about losing the photos from the shoot I did. I personally think I just got a bad card - cause it has so many really great reviews!

Excellent Quality


from Seattle

Ordered from Adorama as free delivery but it arrived with postage due.


Fast recording card


from Lincolnwood, IL  -  Professional

San Disk is probably on top of them all, it's fast and has lots of space and was wonderfully priced.


Works perfectly


from Alexandria, VA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is the third one I've purchased. My digital back is finicky about compact flash cards. SanDisk Extreme has always worked perfectly and have been very reliable.


Great memory cards


from New York  -  Professional

I absolutely love these cards. While I don't notice a speed in writing and recording, sandisk in general makes great reliable memory cards.


Works Fine


from Roseville, CA  -  Semi Pro

As to be expected from SanDisk this card works just fine


San Disc Extreme Pro CF Cards


from Aspen, Co  -  Professional

San Disc Extreme Pro cards are the best....never had one fail me yet. Fast write times, always reliable.


Just added another one to my collection


from Santa Cruz, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is the fifth card I've purchased. I am totally happy with the performance.


SanDisk Reliability


from Port Charlotte, Fl  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I've never bought a bad card from SanDisk.


I've bought two of these SanDisk cards


from New Mexico  -  Semi Pro

I chose 16GB because it is large enough, but not too large. I'd rather have my images on two 16GB rather than one 32GB. If one fets lost or damaged I'll still have at least 1/2 of my images.


Perfect! Reliable! Good price!


from Stockton CA  -  Semi Pro

I am a semi-new/semi-professional photographer in California. In Februabry I held an all-day Mini Valentines Sessions for my clients kids. I already have one of these disks and bought another for backup and Ill explain why. While about half way through the Mini Session, my disc was full. Now, for the record, I shoot RAW with my Canon 5D Mark II (big file size). It was right at the end of one client and I had about 20 minutes before the next. Well, I rushed to download all of these images onto my MAC and it takes what feels like FOREVER. Luckily, I had a 8GB that originally came with my little Rebel 8 years ago and I was able to get by. I knew I had a full 9 hour day of Shooting Easter Pictures in March and I was NOT about to run out of disk space, hence I ordered another of these. Its just as described, writes fast, has a good amount of storage. If I could afford dropping a larger amount of $ at one time Id get an even bigger/higher GB disk but having 2 Extreme Pro 16GB disk and a regular 8GB as backup is good enough for me....If I were a wedding photog, different story. Hope this helps!
