    I am very frustrated and I hope that I will be able to get this card replaced. At first it worked fine. Now, after little over a month usage, all sorts of problems are happening. (1) I have permanently lost photos TWICE already with this card, and one time a large amount of photographs. This has to be the absolute golden rule is to not LOOSE information. It is not my camera nor os. I do not loose photographs on my other CF cards, EVER. This is the first card I have gotten which I have LOST WORK. If I could give less than 1 star for the review, I would for this mere fact alone.(2) Randomly, photos will become CORRUPT. One minute I will be looking at them in the explorer and the next minute the .jpg and or raw files will suddenly become corrupt, loading the image results in completely messed up photos with weird lines, 3/4 missing, etc...This is a big-fat ZERO stars. I will be contacting B&H photo to get this card replaced. I hope it can be, otherwise I just lost out on over $ dollars. BTW, this card is BARELY faster than a 600x card. Very very disappointed in what I thought would be money well spent on a professional CF card. I will change my review if I get this replaced with a good copy. A photographer cannot be worried sick he or she will keep loosing their work! For now, I cannot even trust the card.....

      Lexar 1000x CF cards have awesome ride/read speeds and have in my experience proven to be very reliable. I use mine with a Lexar Pro Workflow Hub.

                  My 64GB 1000x Lexar CF card died today while i was uploading images into LR 5. i have no idea why. i was able to load most of my files so it was not a big loss to me. the card has worked without issue for about a year now. I tried to format the card but couldn't with Lexar Rescue and with my Canon 1D-X. i tried to format the card in Windows 8 as well. it was not possible to format the card. It is dead and i will throw it away. Bummed out.

                              My Nikon D800 can store more than 800 uncompressed raw images (approximately 75 Megs for each .NEF) on the card, and it stores them very quickly.

                                      I waited a while before reviewing this card, so I could test it properly. I have a couple of the Sandisk 64 gig ultras and thought this would be (as advertised)a little faster. Using these cards in a Canon 1DX, I found no difference at all. The buffer fills and empties at the same rate with either card and there is no difference in speed transferring the images to the computer. I would recommend which ever one is cheaper at time of purchase.

                                        Bought 2 of these for my Canon 1DX to speed up buffer clearing and to be able to use mirroring. I shoot a lot of sports and have had no issues so far with them. I'll probably get two more at some point for very long events. Love not worrying about if my card is full or not. 64GB lasts the entire game for 95% of my work.

                                          The capacity of video you can fit on this card is amazing. It eliminates the headaches of wondering what card is carrying what footage. Previously I only had shot on 16GB cards. Very happy with this card.

                                              I got this card for shooting time lapse of the northern lights at high ISOs.
                                              I like to shoot in RAW and the 5D Mark III shoots 6 frames per sec.
                                              This card has no problem keeping up with shooting: 5k RAW, 6 fps, for several hours straight. Awesome!

                                                      As always a great product, I also have the 32Gb version of this card and have used it extensively with my 5d Mk II. I typically getting about 1000 images set at maximum resolution with both Raw and Jpeg selected. Haveing a card that doubles the capacity for this price is a bonus.
                                                      For those of you that are having capacity issues and or issues with corrupt files, you have to use Lexar's USB 3.0 card card reader (See instructions that came with the card). Using a USB 2.0 reader will cause image corruption errors. I have also used Lexar's Firewire IEEE 1394b reader with no issues. But I do not believe it is available any longer

                                                        Just recently I transfer all my file to computer, left the card on the card reader for a few days, and got error. It only show 31mb and won't format. I Heard other had this problem too. I don't know what is going on. But, very disappoint with an extreme expensive card. Not worth the it. My files are more important and cost of losting data is very high.
