Most Liked Positive Review

 

With rebate price, these are great.

I have compared side by side with SanDisk Extreme III cards in my 40D - no difference. Unloading these through a high-performance card reader to my hard drive, no difference. Price? Big difference. Time will tell regarding durability, but so far I'm glad I bought them.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Go with a Sandisk.

I used the card in a Canon 20d and Canon 40d. First one failed, only lost one picture. Kingston sent me a replacement no problem, now the second one is failing. A good warranty will not replace lost pictures. Not worth it.

Not so many 4GB CF can be worked with my Kodak DCS Pro (Version 5.4.1), but this is. And it is fast, great price.

I've depended on this product during overseas trips that will most likely not happen again and I was totally satisfied.

2nd bad Kingston 4GM card in two months

By

from Phoenix  -  Semi Pro

This card will not format in my camera. An identical one I bought a couple months ago wouldn't format in the camera a few weeks ago. Other brands are working fine. Time to move on to another brand.

Not one failure in over 3 years

By

from Indiana  -  Professional

I have 10 of these cards that I've used the last 3 years to capture wedding images for my clients. In those 3 years, I have had zero issues with these cards or any of the other Kingston products we use for our business. I wish I could say something bad or even give some constructive criticism but when a product works like it's supposed to over and over again, what needs to be improved.

It's perfect...

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Semi Pro

As you are probably aware, this is not the fastest nor highest capacity CF memory out there. However, for the price its performance is unbelievable!! This card rocks!!! If you've got the resources and/or need for the uber-fast high-cap cards, then go for it. But for a semi-pro that sells stock here and there and is not on staff with Nat'l Geo or Time Mag, this card is a very wise investment.

Nice card

By

from WV  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This card was an excellent value, and I trust Kingston. It is writing data to the card quickly allowing me to snap off images one after the other without delays.

Failed, Lost all 90 images

By

from columbia, mo  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I have an EOS 30D. I had used the camera for a previous event with this card with no problem. I was practicing with my camera partial metering function when the error message flashed telling me that here was a aproblem with my card. I went to check all of the stored images and they were gone

I already own 4 of these cards and have never had any problems with any of them. I seem to order 1 every time I make a new order.
