Most Liked Negative Review


Good, but faster is available

Failed after first use; SanDisk replaced it. Slower than same capacity Lexar, although cheaper. SanDisk also has faster cards (90 mb/s), but not in the 8gb capacity. Maybe they'll match Lexar soon.

Just what I expected.


from Charlotte,NC  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I've never had a failure with a SanDisk product. I trust them in all of my cameras.


Never let me down...


from Michigan Center, MI  -  Casual user

I've purchased several of these and have never had a problem with them - my computer is ancient so I'm constantly back things up and these are where the 'stuff' goes. Unfortunately, my income only allows me to purchase when they're on sale, but then I statch them up!


My go-to card storage...


from Jackson County, MI  -  Casual user

My camera will only accept CF cards (an older model, obviously) and they work great with it. Also, I use this for all types of other backup storage along with my card reader; it accepts transfers quickly and accurately. I am, in no way, technologically knowledgable, but this is the one I can always count on!


My favorite cf card for my D700


from Utah  -  Semi-Professional

I use both the 8gb and 16gb cf card in my D700. I have found the card reliable and fast.


Fast storage


from NY  -  Professional

I haven't bought storage in quite a while as I find SanDisk to be very reliable. It's the only brand I will buy.


I"ll buy this product again


from New York  -  Professional

I use this product for my professional job


Great deal!


from Baltimore, MD  -  Semi-Professional

I bought this pack of SanDisk 8GB cards a few weeks ago, and have had a great experience with them thus far. I needed these as back ups for my 32BG, but didn't want to spend as much as I did on the 32. This ends up being a pretty good deal considering the quantity of cards, total memory, and reliable brand.


I would buy again and again


from Langhorne, PA  -  Semi-Professional

I use these cards in my Nikon D700 and never failed me yet.


Excellent product


from Pensacola, FL  -  Professional

Whenever I need a memory card, the choice is always SanDisk. The quality is unparalleld.


Increased storage capacity


from Windsor, CO  -  Professional

Greatly increases storage capacity while shooting with camera. Speeds up write/read time while shooting.
