I've been using 4 of these cards and also a number of 4GB versions for my photographic work including regular weddings over the last 3 years or so. They've been in and out of various camera bodies and card readers, subject to carrying in my sweaty shirt pockets, dropped, trodden on (I weigh 18 stones) and generally abused as much as one could reasonably imagine any storage device could be and thus far I can claim flawless service from all of them. This is perhaps not so surprising in a top line product from a premium manufacturer like Sandisk. After all these things are supposed to be reliable, right? However the very first 8GB card in this line that I bought (I know this because it's lovingly marked 8A in thick red permanent marker) once survived a 40 degree synthetics cycle and two hours in a hot tumble dryer without a single file becoming corrupted! This was about 18 months ago and believe me 8A is still going strong. Now that's what I call extreme.
