SanDisk Extreme III

I bought one of these CF cards when they first came out: they are so fast downloading to my computer that I can't detect any lag what so ever; bam, and it is a done thing.

Snap Away !


from Los Angeles, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This card transfer rate is very good. It allows me to snap away without waiting. My only complain is the packaging is too big. Let save our planet... Think small.


Great Buy !!!

Product worked fine for me in my Nikon D200 Digicam. Price was right. Good product. Fast service from Adorama.

Will Purchase More

I now have four of these compact flash cards. I like to have several in case one fails during a wedding or such!The price of these was excellent.[...] I am very pleased with this company and product.


Extreme Value


from Virginia beach, VA  -  Professional

I have a Nikon D200 camera and shoot in NEF-Raw format. The camera came with a 2GB Extreme III card and holds 120 shots in this format. I wanted more cards of 1GB in size because running out of room on a card when there is more to shoot or having a 2GB card go bad can be heart wrenching (nothing lasts forever). [...] These cards are easy to use and are not flimsy. Formatting them with the D200 is quick and easy as well.


Great so far


from Las Vegas, NV  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Worked flawlessly so far.
