Comments about Kingston Technology Kingston Technology 32GB CompactFlash Ultimate 600x Memory Card:

CF 32GB Ultimate 600x is incompatible with many [most] readers. I bought 2, neither is recognized by:

__ 2 diff HP desktop built-in readers
__ 3 diff PNY readers
__1 Lexar reader.

Of all readers I own, only Sony MRWE is able to r/w this card. If either of the 2 cards I received are plugged in during system boot, then systems boot locks up until card is disengaged.

I cannot trust this card with images of value (are anyone's images NOT of any value?). Card is clearly a non-std and poorly-tested design. I own other Kingston cards, and liked them until now. This model is UNACCEPTABLE, and drives Kingston down to my "black label" list.

As MAM wrote the card gives you only around 30 frames in 15 secs on a 7D.
Did the same test with a 16 GB Transcend and got 62 frames in 15 secs.

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. My guess is the UDMA mode was not working with my Canon cameras. But they are useless since that was what I purchased them for. I'm going back to Sandisk.
