Bought this card for my brand new Canon 5D3. Was working good for less than a month. While shooting in the woods, it failed suddenly. No warning or message. Card couldn't even get recognized. Need to see how to recover the images which are non-replaceable. Not worth the premium. May be time to move/stick to sandisk. :-(

                I have used Transcend cards, both CF & SD for years and have never had a card failure or lost image due to a card malfunction. I use this new 1000X card in my Nikon D800, the speed is great and it has no problem with the large file sizes this camera produces. I have used other brand name cards that are more expensive and even some much less expensive no name cards but for quality at a great price Transcend memory cards are the best buy.

                  I use this card as the primary card in my D800e and it not only stores files rapidly, it's also reduces the time needed to upload pictures to my PC. There may be faster cards out there but this card offers great bang for the buck. I see some have had reliability issues with this card and I've only owned it for two months so I can't address that. So far, it's working for me and I'm pleased with the speed.

                    I was using other main brand names for nearly 20 years. well i have switched. it is definitely faster in the read and write department as well. I will recommend this to all my colleges.

                            Cards only get cheaper, this is the best value on the market, for 60% the cost of some different brands, I use it on a PhaseOne IQ160 for a small Raw, there's space for 700 shotsJust what I need to have a peace of mind that I have enough shots for the dayIt's a pain for slow cards when checking focus on this back or downloading large number of shots, it's still slow but good enough

                              Comments about Transcend 32GB CompactFlash Memory Card Ultimate 1000x UDMA:

                              I went cheap and got a Trascend 32G CF 600x about 6 months ago, and took about 5000 photos in my 7D, which still works so far( keeping my figuers crossed).

                              then I bought my second Trascend 32G CF - this very 1000x card about 4 month ago. I took less than 300 photos, and it died midway while shooting a sport event yesterday. All image lost, Ooch!!!

                              I never have any other cards (more than 20 CF or SD cards) died. I will not buy it again. Even they send me a replacement under lifetime warrenty, I don't know whether I would feel comfortable to shoot with it anymore.

                              Very disappointed, and should spend a bit more at the begining with other trusted brand.

                                for most uses this card is fine.
                                i did have problems with it not registering in the camera, and also slow write speeds than expected.
                                for those reasons returned.
                                would not rely on for pro shoots.

                                      After 6 times of light uses, the card could not be read by my camera and card reader. Every time the system showed "the card needs formatted'. God, formatted?! I got 60+ pictures inside! Meanwhile the old SanDisk still works fine with my camera. What can I say? Do I have to give it a star before I can send this preview out?

                                        Bought this card for my brand new Canon 5D3. Was working good for less than a month. While shooting in the woods, it failed suddenly. No warning or message. Card couldn't even get recognized. Need to see how to recover the images which are non-replaceable. Not worth the premium. May be time to move/stick to sandisk. :-(

                                          Used the cheaper Transcend CompactFlash cards and have never had an issue with them. Same with this Ultimate version, and yes do notice the download speed difference.

                                            I bought this card for my Canon 7D. I tend to shoot in Raw and Large JPEG and use the high speed continuous option - and this card has been able to keep up with my shooting style and has the capacity I need.

                                              I just shot a wedding with this card in a canon 5D mark III, and there were no issues...it worked without a hiccup...that's all I ask,

                                                The makers claims of 160MB/s read and 120MB/s write are pure fantasy, both cards purchased were below 75MB/s wirte and 90MB/s read, very dissapointing. I have written several times to Trancscend to request 2x replacement cards and while they replied to my first email, they have not replied to any after that. Warning, these cards do not approach anywhere near the speeds they claim, they are rubbish. Buy the Lexar, they are way faster.
