Big Storage, Teeny Price – Transcend 133X-MLC High Speed CompactFlash CF Memory Card (16GB) Reviews

Pros:
16GB of awesomeness for just $50. I've been using mine in a Canon 5D Mk II to take 25MB raw files in bursts of 3-6 shots (at 3.9 shots per second), and Full High Definition video... and this card has been working perfectly.
Cons:
Not as fast as my Sandisk Extreme IV UDMA card. But heck, it's a sixth of the price when you compare it MB for MB.
Other:
Good memory card, even for professional use. Was worried it might be fake before I received it, but I've been using it for several months now and it is a real 16GB high speed card.
Bottomline:
If you need the size and decent (but not stellar) speed, this is good value.
