    What camera are you using that you need such a high speed card?

    A 300x card will be enough even for recording video with a 5Dii.

    I might not be answering the question directly, however I use 2X Transcend 32GB 400X with a 5D MKII (for both photography and video) and both have been flawless. I would assume the 600x version would be as good, but even faster obviously!

    Additionally, they are quite affordable, just have a look at bhphoto!

    I use SanDisk and Kingston. Both are excellent cards.

    Just stay away from cheap brands and you'll be fine.

    I am a Lexar user myself, but I've used Transcend before and I didn't have any issues with it.

    I know Transcend and Kingston. It was a question about these 2 specific models.

    Thanks

    Ive seen a page somewhere on Canons web site thats recommends SanDisc and Lexar cards but I think thats just so SanDisc and Lexar happy that they charge extra for they're brand name. Get Transcend anyday - way cheaper and just as reliable IMO

    They are pretty similar in quality. Transcend is a well known Taiwanese brand. I would go with Transcend because they tend to be less expensive and they have a lifetime warranty.
