Duracell Compact flash - experiences?

Hi guys
I'm going to be buying a few large cards and Duracell now seem to be marketing a range of udma cards.

Anyone any experience? - They are certainly very well priced...

Re: Duracell Compact flash - experiences?

Sorry, folks. But I'll stay with time established tried 'n true proven and let others establish a near "spotless" record over a few years.

I've never had a problem with SanDisk and I'll continue to pay the price for peace of mind. I've read too many "tales of woe" from people getting home from a shoot and not being able to access the files.

FWIW, the problem with the 7D and some SanDisk media got addressed by Canon with the latest 7D firmware update so it looks like that one was more camera related than media related. Just the same I never experienced it with my 7D, but I use only 8GB cards with it (all I have in CF) where the folks having the problems seemed to be using 32GB media.
