Excellent Quality

There's always a lot of talk about which of the top two memory card manufacturers are best, with opinions swaying in both directions. With all the Lexar cards that I own, both CF and SD, I have never had an issue with writing or reading. The speed of this card is more than sufficient for the wedding and other portrait photography work that I do, as well as any sports that I shoot. Highly recommend for its reliability and durability.

Good Buy


from Santa Cruz, CA  -  Semi Pro

Attended several events last week, and it covered a good number of them. Probably don't want to put all the eggs in one basket, but if you don't have time to change cards, this one is great. Used with D700.


Solid CF


from pottstown pa  -  Semi Pro

Works as expected! Do not go cheap of your storage! Spend the extra dollar!


Does what a Lexar does: it just works.


from SoCal  -  Professional

Fast, reliable, and the 8GB capacity keeps me from putting too many eggs in one basket.


works well


from Boston, MA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Have no complaints. Problems people have about the contacts, I have not seen.


First card was bad.


from Concord, N.C.  -  Professional

First card was bad. Replacement was AOK.


Always reliable


from Lowell, MI  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I have traveled the world using only this product and it has never failed. I use a Nikon D300 and am able to print off quality photos. And, I think the price is very reasonable


I would buy this product again


from Rome NY  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Great fast photo storage. Holds many photo's


Lexar Rocks


from Antioch, CA  -  Semi-Professional

I use this 8GB 800X Lexar CF card for portrait photography. It's quality and speed is awesome. Well worth the price.


Great cards!


from ATL  -  Professional

We are a relatively high volume (10,000 images per month++) still photography studio and use these cards almost every day. They consistently work with no issues - which is EXACTLY what we need them to do! Fast read/write + great value.




from Columbia, SC  -  Professional

Works well in Nikon D4. Fast in camera recording and fast download to computer.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DON M  it is a good fast reliable card.
Shopper  will this card work on Nikon D200?
TOM P  Yes, it absolutely will work with the Nikon digital SLRs. I have used Lexar compact flash cards since the D1H all the way through to my D3s bodies, and they are reliable and fast. I recommend Lexar.
gary m  What is the difference between a 200x and a 800x lexar compact flash card?
HARRY L  Speed, but not by much. The card can be read faster from a card reader into your computer .... but not by 800x/200x=4. More like by twice as fast. And while the card will empty the buffer on your camera faster as well, this will probably not be even twice as fast. If you have a recent new camera, the extra speed is worth it. If you are using an older camera, it probably is not.
