Lexar Pro memory has been real reliable for me, I have never had a failure. The 400X gives me a slight transfer speed improvement over my 300X memory and is about 1/2 the price of the 600X so it is a good choice between speed and cost. I have used Lexar Pro in zero degree weather and in the upper 90s with no issues. I use it in Canon EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D cameras.

I recently purchased one of these cards for use with a 5d MKII and a XF300. The card however would not sustain even a 25 MB/s rate. I returned it to B&H thinking I got a dud. I received a replacement in the mail today. This new card likewise suffered the same problem.

I have four Lexar Pro 300x cards of various sizes and they all work with no problems even up to transfer rates of 50 MB/s.

These cards are somehow not of the same quality. I only wish B&H was still carrying the 300x.

      Had an important photoshoot. Senators, mayor, etc... Put the card in the computer and it had a formating issue. Put the card back in the camera, and nothing. Luckily I had backup software / knowledge to recover. But that was the longest hour of my life. Did some research and a very similar issue came up in 2005. I will not use this brand.

        This is an excellent card. I tested the card in my Canon 5D Mk II. On the large JPG setting, it will take ~60 images continious before slowing down. On RAW, it slows at 12 images. I've had it less than a month, but plan to give it a workout at Bosque del Apache next week.

          I bought this card for shooting airshows with my 7D along with two 16 gig cards. It's fast and holds 1200+ images so it's a good match for the 7D.

              There are 2 truisms when it comes to memory:
              1) You can never have enough
              2) You can't afford for it to fail
              With the Lexar Prof cards, both are attainable - I've never had one fail, and thanks to B&H, they are as affordable as the no-name ones.

                Excellent card for DSLR video shooting. I no longer have problems with this kind of CF cards. I used to use x266 and sometimes got an error. These are fast enough and with great capacity in order to shoot all i need.

                  I am very happy with my new Lexar 400x 32gb CF cards! I use both of them in my Nikon D3s and they work perfectly. They are as fast as advertised unlike some of their competitors. I had purchased another brand of CF card that advertised 400x speeds but after some testing found it actually ran at only 300x. I'll stick with Lexar...

                    Headed to India in a couple of months and wanted some additional storage to cover us during the trip in the event we don't get to download all of our images while we're on the road. The 32GB are fast and I've never had a single issue with the Lexar cards.

                          Along with SanDisk, Lexar makes the best pro-quality memory cards for high-end DSLR cameras. This 400x (60 mb/sec) rated card is less expensive than the SanDisk of the same size and speed and is rock-solid reliable.

                            I needed more memory and a faster card to shoot New York Fashion Week so I got the Lexar 32GB Pro 400x CF Card. Over the course of the week I shot 15,000+ images, usually in continuous mode. The card kept pace and I got all the shots I needed.

                              I didn't want to shell out the extra cash for a 600x but so far this 32GB 400x is considerably faster than my SanDisk 16GB 600x. No write problems so far although I haven't had it for long. So far, it rocks.

                                  Went to Washington DC last week and I didn't want to be bothered changing my memory card frequently.
                                  This was a definate time saver and images were transfered quickly. May consider the 64GB soon.

                                      I use the 32GB (with others) in place of taking download units or laptops when on photo shoots.

                                          I have a Canon 7D and shoot HD video with it and this card has worked as expected so far. I've had it for about 2 weeks now and haven't had any issues with buffering or lose of files.
