Not fast at all
I purchased both the 16Gig and 32Gig of the Kingston 600x. The price was great but when I tried them out they seemed very slow. I benchmarked them using a 7D for 15sec with Raw+JPG. These only got 28 frames. Sandisk Extreme III got 32 frames. Extreme IV got 38 frames. The Kingston should have been much faster but they are slower than cards rated less than half their speed. I also did the test with a 5dII and 50D with similar results. However I must say Adorama was great about returning them. ...View full Review

But they are useless since that was what I purchased them for. I'm going back to Sandisk.

Fast card, I have never had any issues with it
I am a professional photographer but do not shoot in massive bursts, so this card is fine for me, especially if I am shooting raw. Have owned many Kingston cards without a problem.
I have used Kingston cards for quite awhile now and have found them to be reliable and worth the money.
I have only use this card three times so far. It works just as good as any other card that I have used. It is fast as others. I would have given it a 5 star if I had used it more. I purchase this produce because all other Kingston produce I have used have worked just fine. I use it in my Canon 7D
This is my perfect CF card. I have been buying these Kingston 266x at verious capacities (16GB & 32 GB) exclusively for the past few years now and never had the slightest issue. Recently I have been doing a lot of timelapse, requiring the larger cards and this one is just priced very well so I purchased four in the past few months. 266x may not be the fastest card around, but it has no problem keeping up with both video and continuous drive shooting on both my Canon 7D and Canon 5DII. Never noticed any speed difference with faster cards, except perhaps for uploading (but even that goes faster than I need it to be with my card reader). I really do not see any weak points to this card, except perhaps if you do need the added speed of a higher UDMA-rated card.
For video and photo
Bought several of these cards for use as a "poor man's" hard-drive to backup picture data from my 5D3 camera. They are slower than my primary SDHC cards, but they are fine for use as backup and the price is right! In a pinch, I could also use them in the camera, which I couldn't do with a hard drive.
I have decided that in addition to standard hard-drive backups, I might as well never delete the thousands of photos and just buy a new flash card. This one will go in as soon as my previous Kingston, same type but 16G is full - almost, another 120 pix to go, and then into my safety deposit box!
VERY LARGE STORAGE FAST AND RELIABLE
Lowest price in its class from a "name brand." Works great in Canon EOS 40D.
