Too slow for me

I was very disappointed with the speed of this card compared to others in the same class (SanDisk, Transcend, and even a Kingston card). Even just inserting the card in the camera took an extra second or two before it was ready to use. Processing in camera after taking a picture took noticeably longer than the cards I mentioned above, even though this Lexar card was supposed to be faster.

Fast card, low price

Got these cards on sale, and they are fast enough to handle 8 FPS and not clog up.

Good card, good price


from Dummerston, VT  -  Professional

I've been using these cards to shoot sports on my D2H. It is fast enough to keep up with rapid fire 8 FPS sequences without choking the buffer, and has so far been reliable enough to work without data loss.


Works fine, priced right


from Houston, TX  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

It's a memory card. There's not much to say about it other than that it works well. This is my second Lexar Platinum II 8GB card. They just work. I've had trouble in one of my cameras with a couple of CF cards of another brand, so I switched to Lexar and all is well.


Does the job


from Caribou, Maine  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

As expected, I've had no problems with the card. Read speed from the camera is fine. I can take 65 shot with my Canon 40D without a problem, but that might be due to the large buffer within the camera. Download speed onto my computer is comparable to other make cards. No real difference except the Lexar was about $10n cheaper.


Fast card, good price


from Dummerston, VT  -  Professional

This card is currently in use with my Nikon D2H, and handles 8 frames per second with scarcely a hiccup. Yes, there are even faster cards out there, but this hits the price/performance sweet spot nicely.


I would buy this product again


from Miami, FL  -  Professional

This card is a great buy for the money, and is backed 100% by Lexar


not as fast as it needs to be for events


from Atlanta GA  -  Professional

I am an event photog - everything I do is fast-paced. I have noticed no notable delays in write speed because I arely shoot in CH, but review time (delay between hitting the play button and when the images pops on the screen) is noticable. This now a backup vs primary card for me. No other compaints.


Nine Months of Flawless Performance So F


from St. Louis, Mo  -  Semi Pro

My Nikon D700 which can shoot 5 fps, but I rarely use that kind of speed. When I do, the card reads and writes fast enough to keep up. Reading from the card in my computer is comfortably quick on my work computer, which is about 2 years old. My home computer, however, is 6-7 years old and painfully slow with this card.
