Reliable, capable, speedy

Sandisk cards are superb little pieces of technology. I use them exclusively, I think I have around 10 of various capacities and speeds.
These are the largest I own. They are very, very good value for money. I'm used to using the 2GB Extreme III cards and these are noticeably slower (slower being a relative term) when downloading images from the card onto my computer. However, it would be a bit stupid to mark it down for that as I knew they were going to be a bit slower. In a canon 5D they give me something like 430 shots, a canon 40D yields around 480 & a canon 7d around 280 (Full sized Raw + small fine jpegs).
I remember (eeeeh, when I were a lad!), not that long ago really when even a 1GB card like this cost hundreds of pounds. Now you can pick up a 8gb card for around fifteen sheets.
So full marks for an all around great product yet again
