Works with Pre-G3 Powermac's

 

I've been using this card in conjunction with the SYBA SD-CF-IDE-A IDE to Compact Flash Adapter in an older Powermac 6500 system. The IDE controller used in this particular Powermac is ATA-2 / PIO-4 compliant. This system is not capable of UDMA data...

Low Cost ; High Transfer Speed ; Proven Reliability ; Usable in both CF Card and UDMA/PIO Disk Mode

Perfect for pfSense install media

 

I'm using these to build Zettabyte pfSense boxes with removable boot drives in the front panels - these CF cards. Previously I had used MLC NAND devices, and they all failed within two years. SLC cells should outlast the rest of the machine. These...

SLC NAND. Don't leave home without it. Fast boot, much faster than MLC devices

Needs a good CF adapter, which usually is IDE-based. Fine, but I'd love to go all-SATA these days, even just for better airfow. Something in an SD format would be nice, but the industry is built around CF, which really is fine for fixed gear ; They're...

This Card works great! Very Fast & Dependable. Priced somewhat fair. If it continues to deliver, I would rate it one of the best

Great as a DIY SSD option

 

That Windows XP Pro installation has also been tweaked to minimize the amount of disk writes, just in case.

Coupled with a CF to IDE adapter, this is a great CF card for DIY SSD: SLC techology for speed and longevity, for a relatively low price (bought here at Newegg). I have been running a slimed down version of Windows XP Pro on it, inside my Fujitsu B2620...

Excellent Product

 

I took a chance buying this for camera use along with some of the higher priced CF cards. This memory is definitly in the top 3 speed wise...and BARELY behind the fastest I've tested by only about 1 Megabyte per second. Not noticeable in real world...

This card is as fast as the higher priced CAMERA compact flash brands ; I can shoot 18 RAW shots in continuous mode on my Sony Alpha A700 before the buffer fills up. With cRAW I can shoot indefinitly ; I tested by shooting 15 RAW shots @ 18 megs each....

oops its 3.3v not 5v to use UDMA5

 

I made a mistake. UDMA5 uses 3.3v not 5v. In case you were wondering, the SYBA CF to IDE adapter I bought was already setup for 3.3v when I got it, which is the correct pin setting for UDMA5 or Transcend's 300x CF card. So just to recap, 3.3v for UDMA5...

Cheap alternative to a SSD when used with SYBA IDE to CF adapter

 

The SYBA supports UDMA5 at least (haven't seen a UDMA6 CF anywhere). The Transcend 300x CF models are set at UDMA5 by default, which requires 5V to operate. Your old HDD, if its ATA6, supports 5V. Although, it rarely uses it, just to start up the motor...

Price ; UDMA5 is fast enough to double my laptop speed!!! I was using a ATA6 5400RPM HDD. Now, I'm using the SYBA IDE to CF adapter N82E16812186050 and this puppy

Couldn't afford the 16GB 300x CF Transcend makes. Plus, I wanted to test out the performance on a lower cost model anyway. The 4GB model is large enough for a *nlite trimmed XP and a lot more software and drivers, but I cannot install COD4, which uses...

Very Smooth Speed

 

I have used this card for my wedding project, and it's impressed me by the click of camera. 1 sec for 1 pic, it's captured as you click your cam. Very fast speed for transfer too. I transfer 144 pics with (474MB) total in "5 secs" can you believed it?...

Where do I start ; 300x for a flash memory card (one word, great)

This is the best card I ever own

Finally! A contender from Transcend

 

Very good UDMA performance, almost as good as top-of-the-line cards from LExar and SanDisk. This is Transcend's 4th attempt at UDMA and finally one that is up to the task

Just that they didn't get in the game sooner
