    Anyone have any experience with these CF cards?
    Tiger Direct has 1GB cards for $69.99 and the advertisement
    states 12MB sustained read speed and a write speed of 80X.
    Seems like a good deal, but I am just a little confused as to why
    they list an honest throughput in read mode and just state the 80X
    for write speed?! I know there is a chart somewhere that lists just
    about how fast 80X would be and I will look for it, but does anyone
    out here use Corsair CF cards, and if so, what do you think?

    TIA

    1x =150KB/s = .15MB/s
    Therefore; 80x = 80 x .15MB/s = 12MB/s

    Thankyou Sir, saved me some research time!
    It seems this card has the same speeds input/output but the ad
    sure didn't reflect that...

    1X = 150 kBps (for some reason, flash card makers have adopted
    the standard speed for CD-ROM drives as their basis for measurement),
    so 80X is around the same 12 MBps they're quoting. It's strange
    that they'd quote one measurement as an actual number and the
    other as a multiple, but at least they look to be reasonably
    consistent; I've seen some specs on their site which are clearly
    wrong.[/QUOTE]
