Medium performance CF cards

Dear friends,
I have to buy a few CF cards. I have already some SanDisk Extreme IV for high data rate recording, so now I'm looking for good price CF cards for 100Mbps recording.
Price for the SanDisk Extreme III 16/32 GB are good in Adorama and B&H, but I can not benefit from the rebates.
Any good option?
I'll prefer of course 32BGs cards than 16Gbs, but size is not an issue.
Cheers,
rafael

Rafael,
I would continue with the Sandisk. I choose them for their quality-which gives me piece of mind(that is worth a lot on my shoots). I am curious, can you not get the Sandisk rebates because you are overseas?

Dear Jim and Rafael,

So far, we have been very happy with the PhotoFast cards.

All of our testing has been positive, and all reports from the field have been positive.

No problems with my PhotoFast card either.

I haven't had any problems with any of the following cards;

Sandisk Extreme III 16GB and 32GB
Sandisk Extreme IV 16GB
Photofast 32GB

All work flawlessly. Note that the Extreme III and IV cards have been discontinued, so once they have gone they are gone.

I am testing out the newer Sandisk Extreme 32GB and it working well. I don't see the point of purchasing the Extreme Pro version at this time.
