p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Extreme CF Card price drop! - Just a heads up!


First of all I would like everyone to know that I am not selling anything nor am I associated with any of the stores listed below. I'm just giving everyone a heads up.

Today while shopping for CF cards I noticed that the price of Sandisk Extreme Pro 90mb/s had gone down at BH photo and Adorama. Basically you can score two 32 gig cards for the price of yesterdays twin 16gb card deal.

I'm not sure if this is just a sale or an inevitable price slash. I was going to purchase some Transcend 600x cards but these cards are exactly the same price. Easy decision for me now.

16gb - $60 (was $98)
32gb - $100 (was $220)
64gb - $222

Adorama seems to have a small discount if you purchase two.

Here are two quick links:

Holy crap. I just though lexar 16GB 600x was a good deal at the photoshow over the weekend. I just got i yesterday. And glad i didn't break open the package.

Time to walk down to Adorama and return it. And picking up a 32GB for the same price!

Its got to be a slash and burn sale in preparation for something faster that might be coming out. It always happens like that. I assume they'll keep the "Extreme" MLC stuff at the same price. And just phase out the current "PRO" cards out and replace them with faster more expensive ones like they usually do.

Thanks, Mike.

I got burned pretty badly using the Lexar Professional 400X yesterday. I was volunteering to take photos of families during Safe Halloween and halfway through the event, it quit on me. Neither the camera or my Mac Pro could recognize the card anymore.

Then my dog chewed the other Lexar card a few hours later. Ordered four 8 GB Sandisks from Amazon, and then the next morning I see THIS post for a great deal.

Am I being screwed or what?

Oh man! Sorry to hear that. Time for an RMA from Lexar, but for the time being have you checked using disk utility to see if you can recover some of the photos? I've had this happen to me before and disk utility saw it where the OS didn't. Its worth a shot.

What is the reason? Is there a new line of cards coming out or an increase in chip density? I see that the Extreme Pro SDHC are discontinues according to B&H.

I picked up two of the 32gb extreme pro 600X for $200 plus shipping.

Not only is this a good deal relative to the old price, but for some reason we get ripped off here in Canada on memory cards, the same cards here are $400 EACH.

I have seen the new 95mb/s SD cards but nothing on the CF side of things since the 100mb/s 128gb CF card.

No news on the Sandisk site since October 27th:

No new products other than the 95mb/s SD cards:

Best price on the new UDMA-7 cards.

This is a little faster, and a whole lot more expensive.

Does your dog prefer SanDisk or Lexar?
