    I use this card in my Sony DSLR A700 Digi-Cam. I use a Lexar Pro FireWire 800 UDMA Reader. This card is just BLAZING FAST!!! I have Sandisk Extreme IV and Lexar Professional UDMA CF (300X)Cards and this CF card Blows Them Away!!! I shoot in Raw and @ 5 Shots per second this card has ZERO LAG on all 15 Shots (Buffer Limit) and then it keeps on shooting at a slightly slower rate for 3-5 shots and BAM Another 15 shots fire off like a machine gun. Neither of the other 2 Brand Name Cards I use comes even close! Truly AMAZING... Then the upload speed to my PC is also noticeably faster as well. This Card ROCKS...

    I use this card in my Olympus cameras (two E-620, one E-600, one E-5). I was pretty happy with it till the day I had the unfortunate idea to compare it with my lowly, cheap and unpretentious x233 16Gb card (won't make advertisement here, the name ends in "Data").

    Surprise, surprise - the x400 Transcend card happened to be WAY SLOWER than the cheap x233 card. After several tests - average was 22 shots for a 10 seconds shooting burst, vs 32 shots with the x233 one.

    Quick comparison with an old, old 4gb Sandisk laying around (advertising 15mb/s on the label) - 24 shots for a 10 seconds burst !

    Quick call to Olympus tech support: yes, the camera can handle this card and I should see an improvement over the x233 card.

    Quick call to Transcend tech support. "Your card is defective, we are sending you a new one". So far so good.

    New card comes in the mail. Test. Same result. absolutely identical.

    New call to tech support. Two weeks of instructions. Do this. Do that. Test it with this and this software.

    Well, card tested. Verdict: no name x233 card writing speed: 13mb/s. Transcend x400 card: 12.6m/s. Read card is higher on the Transcend card by 16%.

    "See, our card is faster !!! Case closed !!!"

    Wait wait wait. Relaunch. I don't care about read speed. Box advertises 30mb/s in writing.

    "Oh, yes, but it means "Up To" 30mb/s. And, results from a USB card reader are not conclusive. You need to test it on a sata card reader. Good day".

    Well, ok. Sata reader purchased. Big laugh: the x233 card is still faster than the x400 :) What will we do, oh, gurus of computer wisdom ?

    "Ah, ok. Your card is defective. We are sending you a new one. Put code 123422323232323232323221324" on RMA sheet.

    The code helped. I received a card that managed to hit 22mb/s when tested. But wait - still slower than the x233 :-D

    Test in camera: On an E-5, fresh out of the box, the Transcend x400 managed to do 1 (ONE, UNO, UN, EINZ) frame more than the old x233 on a 10 seconds burst.

    Well, I guess that's a small victory. Long live Transcend. They managed to beat a x233 with a x400 one, by a hair. I guess that's as much as they can do.

    Conclusion: Cheap and great x400 card for the price ? Try again. Mislabeled x233 card, IF it's not defective. Which you have 60% chances of getting, and will need 3 months with tech support to straighten up. Thanks but no thanks

      Comments about Transcend 16GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

      I bought this for my 7D, needing additional chips into the outback. I got a few 16GB instead of a larger chip so that in case. of failure I do not loose as much.

      The CF seems to keep up with the camera for the most part so I am not over running the buffer

      I have no failures

      I am using this Compact Flash Card for two of my cameras: Nikon D2X, and Nikon D200 cameras. I have been using Transcend CFC for a while now as they seem to be as reliable as many of the other Compact Flash cards.

        I use this for capturing RAW and video with my EOS 7D. It's definitely a lot faster than my other x133 cards and is a great value. Transcend has lifetime warranties and are very reliable!

                          So far, so good. I use this with my Canon 7D and haven't been disappointed yet. I've had no lag in transfer speeds and there is ample storage capability. The 5th star is yet to be determined as I haven't tested it with HD video yet. For the price, you can't go wrong. Multiple cards will allow you to not put all your eggs in one basket. For amature or pro, it's a good fit.

                                        I'm using this CF card in my Nikon D200 and it has worked well. I have had no problems. The price could not be beat! I highly recommend getting one.

                                          Fast enough for 1080p filming, awesome price and big enough capacity wise. It is a very good product that never let me down so far. I have been using a few of those over the past few years at work (full day weddings) and they hold up really well, so I decided to get some more. :))

                                            I purchased two Transcend 16GB CF Memory Cards since I will be shooting a wedding in September. The price was excellent and so far the card has performed admirably. Ideally, I would have preferred to purchase the 600x version, but due to my budget restrictions the 400x works just fine.
