p.1 #1 · Lexar 800x CF Compact Flash cards


Hello-

I was browsing for some CF cards for an upcoming trip and noticed what looks like a new Lexar 800x UDMA 7 CF card:
http://www.lexar.com/products/lexar-professional-800x-compactflash-cf-card?category=77

I haven't been able to find a review on these cards which leads me to be a bit apprehensive... but the pricing seems to be less than their (slower) 400x counterparts.

Has this snuck under everyone's radar or have I succumb to a new type of acquisition syndrome?

Aren't these the same as the one that is on sale now on B&H? There's also the more expensive 145MB/s card that are on sale as well.

800x (120MB/s)
1000x (145MB/s)

The "800x" cards are only 400x (60MB/sec.) when it comes to write speeds. The 32GB and large 1000x cards retain full rated speed (145MB/sec.) in writes.

The Lexar cards on BH are advertised as such. I was unable to find any tests on their write speeds; specifically on Rob Galbraith's page ( http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/multi_page.asp?cid=6007 )

1000x
Min Read Speed: 150MB/s
Write Speed: 145MB/s

800x
Max. Read Speed: 120MB/s
Max. Write Speed: 60MB/s

400x
Max. Read Speed: 60MB/s
Max. Write Speed: 45MB/s

Too bad. I like his site. He used to have an excellent discussion forum.

Lexar, usually, charges more-much more-for it's very best cards. SanDisk somewhat the same. So i try to wait out the technology and buy the on sale, one notch less than latest/fastest speed. I do, however, have the Sony card that goes in my D4. When I want to splurge for latest/fastest I just look at the 10MegaB PCMIA card I keep around that I bought in 1995 for $350.

I use the Lexar 1000X in the D4 and it is very fast. I can't think of a situation where I would benefit from increased write or read speed. I used Lexar 800X cards in the D3s and would hit the buffer limits often when shooting surfing. The D4 has a more robust buffer than the D3s, which is an obvious factor.

Thanks for all the comments. I went ahead and got a 64gb version of their 800x card on sale to give it a go. I rarely burst for more than a second or two and doubt it will be a problem for me :-)

Has anyone benchmark the Lexar 800x? I would like to see the actual write/read speeds.

The link below has the 128GB Lexar 800x at write/read speed of 56MB/s & 126MB/s
