    I use thiese in my 1DMIV and 5DMII
    Video and stills - the buffer light hardly comes on.Yes you can buy San-disc or lexar at triple the price tag but why would you.I have used Transcend cards for 2 years now and love them.Not to mention they are equiped with error write protection.It is imposible to lock up one of thiese becouse the file didn't write.
    The 400x and 600x are in my opinion the best CF cards in the world as of the year 2010 - period.

    The first 2 cards and the last time I will ever consider buying from "Transcend". Worst experience ever! I got 2 and initial test (random few shots of photo and several minutes of video) works fine. I put on a family event on a sunday party to test it out before a actual job (thanks god) for video and photo. Only 1 retain the photo and video, the other shows up empty when i put it in the computer. I give it 1 start for their pricing effort. Stick with sandisk and save your behind!

    Not fast enough for Nikon D800

      Comments about Transcend 64GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

      I have been using this card with Nikon D800 for 3 month and it does the job, but every 50-100 shots my D800 "freezes" while writing onto the card for 15-30 seconds. You can take more pictures while the camera is busy writing, but you can't review them until it finishes and that is very annoying. This happens even at Medium resolution! No errors so far. That's why I gave it 3 stars.

            Shot a wedding on this, bought two and had the second one act as a mirror to the first one. Worked and I'm happy with it.

                I use this for DSLR video on a 7D. I have several transcend cards of various sizes and have never had a problem with any of them. I mostly shoot corporate video. It's nice to have a couple of these 64GB if you are shooting a ton of video in a day.

                            I have used the other more expensive brands, and these are right up there. I have never had any problems with theses cards and they download super fast. Plus they come with free software for in case you format by accident.

                                I use this to capture still photographs and it works like a charm. Actually, this is my second Transcend card, my first one was a 32GB and I wanted to get a larger capacity for uninterrupted shooting. The 32GB one sits in the box as a spare now. I am not concerned with the speed so long as it keeps up with my shooting, which this card does with no problem at all.

                                  Comments about Transcend 64GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

                                  Works well, although at 400X it still bottlenecks the D800E when shooting at 4fps (shooting RAW only or JPEG only enables faster performance, as even having the JPEG's going to an SDHC card will still slow write speed), as the D800 series can handle up to UDMA 7.

                                  When transferring photos via card reader, you should get faster speeds via USB 3.0 vs USB 2.0.

                                            I am a new Transcend customer. I generally use SanDisk and Lexar memory cards, but I got this one b/c of the good reviews and the price. So far I am completely satisfied. I have performed mulitple shoots on this card with no problems. Shooting on raw I am still able to get over a thousand images so it's a nice card to have at an event or wedding... or if I am doing mulitple sessions in one day.

                                            This is an upgrade card. When shooting long events this is a must.

                                                The problem with reviewing something like this is that it takes time to know how good it really is. So far it is great! I can take a huge number of shots without having to clear the card. But the key question I won't know for a while...how does it hold up over time. If it starts getting bad locations and corrupted files, that would be horrible. So I reserve the right to amend my recommendation/rating. But so far I'm very happy with it.
