Grey-throated  Sunbird (Anthreptes griseigularis) by  alabang, on Flickr

The  Grey-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes griseigularis) is a species of  bird  in the Nectariniidae family. It is found in a wide range of  semi-open  wooded habitats in the northern and eastern part of the  Philippines. It  is often considered a subspecies of the Brown-throated  Sunbird, but  the two differ consistently in measurements and plumage,  and there is  no evidence of intergradation between them.[1] It has not  been rated by  BirdLife International (and consequently IUCN), but is  generally  common and therefore unlikely to be threatened.

Thoughts on the 128GB & 64GB Transcend CF cards? It appears RiDATA has no representation in the Philippines.

mac thank you for taking the time to respond. My photography has virtually no commercial value but I still do value them as I tend to travel great distances to locations that are extremely difficult and expensive to get to and for which it is either accessible once a year or less.

Good thing I am raising this concern now when the 1DX and 7D replacements are but rumor.

Software & Accessories / Sub-$200 128GB CompactFlash Memory Cards
« on: January 13, 2014, 08:24:30 AM »
Has anyone used the following 128GB CompactFlash Memory Cards from RiData/RiTek? My sole experience with this brand is with their blank CDs and DVDs.

I learned about these really "low" cost memory cards from another forum when I asked about 128GB CF cards selling for under $200.





On the forum I was linked to this site http://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/ridata/?&sort=alphaaz&sort_direction=0&xsearch_e10=Compact+Flash+Card&xsearch_e12=128GB

Not buying from them as it means import duties charges if I ship em to where I am currently at and I have found the local distributor.

Robgalbraith.com benchmarked the RiData 600x cards performing within a permissible range. I would assume the 1000x, 800x and 400x will be as consistent, hopefully.

Note:

- Not associated with RiData, RiTek or their resellers
- Just want to get end-user feedback for this sub-$200 128GB CompactFlash memory card from actual owners.
- Yes, I know the maxim of not "putting all your eggs in one basket". Same was said back in 2003 when 128MB (Megabyte) memory cards were $100 and 1GB cards were $1,000.
- Not spamming forums. I just want end-user feedback. There are no reviews on RiData's 400x, 800x or 1000x lines of CompactFlash memory cards.

I expect all these lenses will become Ls or get IS.

I also expect prices to double for the updates.

I'd be the first in line to get a single digit AA-less SLR from Canon.

I'd love to sell my 27-inch Dell U2711 now and get a 32-inch Sharp 4K display but my 27-inch iMac would probably not be able to drive it properly and not to mention not match in terms of resolution and screen size.

I hope in 3 years time all the issues for 4K displays will be resolved for the largest 4K iMac I can get.

It's good to see that you're aware of the difference, a significant majority of the people I talk to are completely unaware. In my opinion it basically amounts to false advertising.
Bravo I'm informed of the lies of the industry. Dude, get over it! It's just a marketing term to highlight a new feature that I am particularly thankful for.

Lower power consumption is _always_ welcome.
