Robert, just get this Transcend card, it's as good as Sandisk.

For overcranking, stay with SxS.

I know some people had some issues with the earlier Lexar version. Maybe it is time to try them out one more time since the Kensignton adapters are not available?
Jose, which Lexar are you talking about? Care to give an item number? Thx. P.

I purchased two Kensington cards from Amazon UK + 2 Transcend 16gb cards - the Kensington 7 in 1 retails for 13.56. BTW. does anyone know what the 7 in 1 actually means, as far as I can see only two card types will fit in (SD & SDHC)

Amazon.co.uk: Kensington 7-in-1 Media Reader for ExpressCard slot - Card reader - 7 in 1 ( Memory Stick, MS PRO, MMC, SD, xD ) - ExpressCard: Kensington: Electronics & Photo

Kensington cards ...

I paid $90 for 2 cards ... I consider that pretty good compared to SXS. The difference is huge!!!

I only suggested Sony as a pitiful attempt at humor.

The reality here is the product is one that has very limited usefulness and probably only began to sell when we discovered SDHC.

Most folks using SDHC cards in their digital cameras would transfer either directly from the camera or use a simple USB card reader. The market for a card reader for ExpressCard notebooks is indeed very limited.

Next product to test is the SIIG 12-in-1 adapter. Note the 11-in-1 which is PCIe. The 12-in-1 is USB and can be ordered directly from SIIG.

Ned - I tested the SIIG 12-in-1 adapter and it is not recognized by the EX1 (reports "unknown media"), so it doesn't work.

Transcend

Hi!Can somebody confirm how much possible to overcrank with transcend 16gb cards?As i understand sandisk almost 15mbs and overcranking possible near 50fps.I tryed apacer sdhc and it give me little over 30 fps.i guess its not very safe to use it for HQ recordings.

Best Regard

Raul

You can get around 40fps - but its NOT garanteed - always use the SxS card that came with the camera for such things. I assume you mean Transcend SDHC class 6 and not SSD cards?

Peter,

This is the card from Lexar that I purchase and never had any issues shooting HD or SP quality. However, I am shooting with the EX3.

EX8GB431 Lexar 8 GB ExpressCard, Backup Memory for Desktop & Notebook Computers

These are the numbers on the back of my Lexar 8GB SSD card:

Lexar EX8GB-5001 Rev D
32064-8GBC-2407

Lexar Media Inc 2007

I'd like to know if this is the same/different as yours - mine came from the UK about 10 months ago and does not work reliably in any mode with the EX1.

More to the point is that the data rates for my 8GB Lexar are:
sequential read:24.7 seq. write 6.97
random read:23.92 random write: 1.36
random4k read:5.41 random 4k write 0.015

If you trawl thru this thread you'll find all the information refering to data rates on a large number of cards. This one of mine is simply not fast enough. The test was done the Crystaldiskmark soft which we've all used to get some parity in the tests.

I got mine a couple of months ago. I am not sure what the numbers are since I removed the back sticker because it was tight sliding the card in and out of the camera. I am not sure if there is another way to find out the revision number?

Guess not, but if you could run a test with CrystalDiskMark:

Download CrystalDiskMark 2.2.0 - A small HDD benchmark utility for your hard drive - Softpedia

with the Lexar SSD card in a laptop express card slot, then the numbers will tell us what's happening.

Has anyone used the Sandisk SDAD109A11 Digital Media Memory Card to Express Slot Adapter in conjunction with the Sandisk Ultra II 16GB cards? Do they work well?
I am about to order some.
