having 14 lexar and 11 sandisc cards i can say none ever failed me (knock on wood).
i find it amusing that when people have problems they always tell the world a product is crap.
even when thousand others (pros like david noton, scott kelby, joe mcnally, vincent laforet etc.) praise a product.
ok so some have only problems with lexar... other have only problems with sandisk... i have no problems with either brand. what does this tells us?
btw: do you know that sandisk has reported that about ONE THIRD of their cards are counterfeit
search the web. i guess for other brands it will be the same!
and often it´s very hard to tell if a card is counterfeit or not.
it´s not only cheap ebay reseller who sell them with full knowledge.. even your local shop around the corner probably will sell some, without knowing it.
and while you may spot differences when the boxes are side by side.. most will not know it when they buy a card.
this was some time ago: http://martybugs.net/articles/images/sandisk_box_large.jpg
today, some fakes look identical on the outside.
they even fake a hologram.
I would look on it that YOU have been lucky to have Lexar's that work rather than me having bad luck...!
nope.. because it´s simple statistics.
lexar would be out of business if that was the case.
instead it´s the favourite brand of many pros.
Other pros I know have had similar issues over the yrs and no longer buy Lexar
well same is true for sandisk.
just read product comments on the internet.
i was at photoshop world in orlando.. what do you think how many lexar cards i saw?
lexar and sandisk are the two most used... for a good reason.
i would definately look if your cards are original ones.
even when that sometimes not possible to prove without opening them.
they are broken anyway.....
