This product really works great. It is very well built, strong and durable. This is the second one I buy.
The first one was paired with my Canon 7D for several months and they are a good match. Enough space to go throught a full day session (more than 1000 photos on RAW at 18 Mega Pixels).
Also the 8 FPS and the 1080 video work perfect with the speed of this memory. Even after upgrading the firmware on the 7D to the 2.0 version, this memory still shines keeping up the pace with the biggest buffer.
This new memory I will use it on a Canon 40D as my second body.
For the money you pay you got exactly what you need.
After almost a full year of very heavy usage into the worst weather conditions, still could not found anything negative about it.
I strongly recommend this memory. I'm taking my own advise and bought a second one.

I use these for shooting video on a Canon 7d and they work terrifically. They write very fast but the best part is the fast read for dumping data in the field. I have had some problems with corrupt files but haven't ruled yet which device is the actual culprit; this card, the camera, or the hard drive/card reader I use.

      Using the 32GB CF card as primary storage for a Canon EOS 5DMkII. 400x speed is good for fast shooting. Price is very reasonable for this amount of memory and speed. Would recommend to a friend.

        I have been using Transend cards for the past few years and have found them to be reliable under a variety of conditions. These are a good back up for the more expensive cards.

            This is the same kind of card I already have and it is at a great price. I purchased two before I went on vacation. I'm very happy with the performance.

            Comments about Transcend 32GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

            I have 4 of these 32Gb, and 2 of the 64Gb cards. I took them and my netbook along with a 320Gb portable hardrive on a 17 day tour of Europe last year. They all performed very well with my Canon 7d and 5d MKII.Shooting a RAW + Jpeg bracket(3 shots),I ended up with 21,000+ images. At night I would transfer the images to the hardrive or the netbook. I did not have any problems at all with any of the memory cards. The Transcend cards are the very best value available in memory cards. I have some SD cards as well, for my 60D, and they perform very good too. I would reccommend these to anyone wanting inexpensive, dependable memory cards.

                      Running a few of these for still and video on my Nikon D800. They keep up with the camera and seem to download using my FW800 readers as quickly as my Lexar and Sandisc cards of similar and higher speeds. SInce I had several SDHC and Micro SD Transcend cards and had read favorable reviews though the years about these cards, I figured I get a few to test and then bring along for a month-long shoot in easter Europe.

                      So far so good and best of all, they are half the price of the other two major brands!

                        For the money, it's hard to beat. Use it on a Canon 5D Mkii and I have had no issues with write speeds, even when using the Magic Lantern setting for higher bit rates for HD video capture.

                        card performed pretty good for photos, but when it comes to video recording and taking photos on the same card its all bad. invest in Lexar or sandisk if you want to do both on your DSLR.

                              I bought this as my video card for my Nikon D300s and its been working like a charm. I've been testing it almost everyday since receiving it and its been doing what its suppose to do. This will be my go to CF card for a two week once in a lifetime trip to China. Lots of space for video to go with my other SDHC card. And for the price, might get another one.

                                Works as advertised. I did not have any buffering issues since I am not an action shooter. I probably do two to three shots in a row. This is a great value for the price.

                                    Transcend CF cards are the best cards on the market. Great price and I've never had one fail in all the years I've used them.

                                    Looking at CF and SD card Wallet I only see Trancend cards.

                                        Use it in my Canon EOS 7d. This is a very fast flash card. I am able to achieve pretty high burst frame rate with it.

                                            I love transcend. I have 6 cards like this. Never had any problems with transcend. Highly recommend! There is no reason to buy more expensive storage. Transcend is fast and reliable.
