Has anyone tried these 16Gb CF cards?

My dealer recommends but doesn't sell Pretec 233x cards; their main UK sales site has very negative reviews.

Kingston CF cards have always been good in my digital still cameras; the Amazon site contains mixed reviews for the 266x card.

Many people in various forums recommend the Transcend 266x card; is it just that next to Sony it's the most expensive?

To what extent do you get what you pay for? Pretect has a metal case which sounds like a good idea yet it's the cheapest.

Elsewhere on this forum people report that 133x cards are perfectly OK; I make programmes for a living and can't afford a failure.

I could really do with some hands-on real-life experience here.

Best regards

Philip

Lots of threads on this already, most notably the thread directly below this one on 32GB cards.

I mainly use Pretect 32gb 233x and don't have any problem.
