SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash is designed for serious professional photographers who demand one of the fastest, most rugged and most durable memory cards on the market. Professional photographers who work under less than ideal conditions expect more from a flash memory card. More speed. More performance. More reliability. SanDisk's Extreme III card delivers everything you want plus a whole lot more.
That's because only SanDisk Extreme III memory cards feature innovative ESP technology for the fastest speeds and highest performance. ESP stands for "Enhanced Super-Parallel Processing". Simply put, it means you are getting the fastest read / write speeds available, speed you'll definitely appreciate whenever you find yourself shooting and storing pictures in harsh environments, extreme temperatures or at high altitudes.
Every SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash card comes with RescuePRO so you can recover images, documents, mail, video, music - just about any digital file, with ease. Built with leading-edge media recovery algorithms, RescuePro lets you preview recoverable data before you try to retrieve it. With RescuePRO's unique recovery algorithm for MPEG audio and MPEG video recovery (MPEG-1/2/3) what you see and what you hear, is what you can recover.

I guess you can say I use these for personal and business. I have all sandisk cards and I have never had any issues with any of them. These are excellent products..
The Extreme III series have always been the cards I go for in terms of price/value/performance. Anything faster isn't really going to do much for me since I rarely use burst shooting on my wedding photography, and if I do I only shoot somewhere around 2-3 fps at the most for up to 5 to 6 seconds. I've had a stack of these Extreme III 8GB for over a year and they have never failed me once. Transfer has always been quick and I never experienced any read/write error from my cameras or card readers. I believe 8GB is a good balance of capacity because I don't like to risk too many pictures on one card in case of failure, so I carry four 8GB cards in a case, and 2 cases of them if I really need to. Three of these cards would get you around 1,000 12MP RAW and most important of all, knowing that I can count on the quality of SanDisk behind the cards keeping my pictures safe, is priceless.
