I use a Transcend 16 GB 600x voor more than 1 year almost every weekend with my 7D shooting soccer. Around 500 photo's. Works great, never had a problem.
 
I have to admit that I will buy now two 16GB Lexar 1000x that will hopefully give extra boost to my 7D. I'll keep the Transcend for my upcoming 5D MK III
 
(I have sandisk Extreme 8GB 60MB as backup)

Dude...

You have a 1D X...   Spend a couple of hundred dollars and buy Lexar 1000x cards.  ...or even 600X

The other brands have fast cards also, but I recommend Lexar.

After I acquired my 1DX in July, I wanted to ensure that I had the fastest CF cards for continuous shooting.  I had always used SanDisk Extreme Pro cards but was concerned that their cards were rated at 82% of the comparable Lexar 32GB cards in the Galbraith review.  I have never lost an image on a SanDisk so I was confident in their storage quality but the speed bothered me.  I even contacted SanDisk to see if they were releasing faster cards soon and I got a "dance around" answer that did not indicate they were. Today, they still do not offer faster cards. Therefore, I purchased a pair of Lexar 1000X 32GB cards that were on sale at Adorama for $234.95.  There was a big run on that deal so it required 3 weeks for them to arrive.

I have used the Lexar cards exclusively since they arrived and always shoot with recording to both cards.  I have yet to hear the 1DX stop recording in a burst mode of 12fps whereas that occurred frequently with my 10fps Mark IV with the SanDisk cards.  I am pretty certain the Lexar would stop recording if my burst was long enough but that did not happen in the two football games I shot this fall.

I highly recommend Lexar and unless SanDisk matches their speed I will not purchase SanDisk again.
