FAULTY CARDS. WILL LOSE YOUR IMPORTANT FILES ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. I would give 0 stars if I could.I lost all my important travel files that I will never be able to get back because I used this memory card.I tested this card right when I got it and it worked fine. A few months later I brought it with me on a trip to Thailand and it worked fine. The next time I tried to access these files it crashed and wouldn t let me access anything or use the card itself. I tried many different ways to retrieve the files.I kept the card for awhile researching how I could get these files off of the card because they were very important to me. Because of this, some time went by.Seller will not refund purchase or provide a new card, because I was past the return date due to trying to retrieve these very very important files that were lost due to getting sold a completely FAULTY card.I have used amazon for years and use it for soooo many purchases and I have never been more disappointed in a product or in a company. 1Poor quality and customer service I wish I never had to leave bad reviews but I got really disappointed with Lexar's quality control as well as customer service.As a freelance photographer, I was planning to start using CF cards in addition to SD cards so I decide to get the Lexar 32 GB CF card from Amazon. I put the CF card into my Canon 5D Mark III CF card slot, and guess what, an error message showed up after I turned on the camera. So I took the CF card out and surprisingly found that one pin inside my 5D's CF card slot was bent (see pic). I checked the CF card and noticed one of the 50 holes seemed smaller than the others.So I sent an email to Lexar, talked to at least 3 representatives but still couldn't get in touch with a supervisor/manager. The only response I got was to send the CF card to them for inspection and they will decide whether or not to give me a new card, and they will not take any responsibilities for the bent pin. Now I have to spend several hundreds out of pocket to fix the CF card slot that was damaged by a $30 defective CF card. Totally not worth it. If you are going to buy this CF card, please make sure to inspect the card carefully before inserting it to your camera. Make sure to return the defective card before it hurts your camera and your wallet. 1GREAT CARD-HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This is an excellent CompactFlash card. I only use either Sandisk or Lexar since I am a professional photographer and I cannot trust my images to off-brand media. I first purchased one of these 1066x cards to test it out. The transfers were very fast and without any issues. I just purchased a two-pack of these cards as I really need more than one for my work. One tip...I prefer to use smaller cards such as this 32 instead of 64 or 128 mb cards. The reason is that in the unlikely event that a card fails, it will not have as many images on it as a larger card. But in my 47 years as a pro photographer, with perhaps 20 years shooting digital, I had only one card failure. That was early on, and most of the images were recoverable using software. In any event, I highly recommend these cards. One more thing...as with any memory, the prices vary almost daily. I picked up a two pack today because the cost was as low as I've seen it. Keep your eye on the prices and then be ready to purchase when the price drops. 5One of the fastest CF card out there --Introduction--Magic Lantern has changed the world of Canon EOS 5D Mark III the ability to record 14-bit RAW video. And that also push the limit of CompactFlash card. You need a very fast CF card in order to capture 1080p RAW video. So what is the best CF card for 5D3? Is 128GB Lexar Professional 1066x CompactFlash Card the one? It has the ability to deliver a read transfer speed up to 160MB/s with UDMA 7 technology. Supports Video Performance Guarantee specification for professional-quality video (VPG-65) which mean 65MB/s writing speed minimum. Does Lexar 1066x CF really that great? Let s find out --Performance Results--What is the maximum writing speed for 128GB Lexar Professional 1066x CompactFlash Card? Well, Lexar did not mention it on the specifications just said that write speeds lower than read one. However, website like B & H states that it has up to 155MB/s writing speed. Packaging box also mentions that. Let s see the real world results 128GB Lexar Professional 1066x CompactFlash Card manages to get 150MB/s read speed and 134MB/s write speed sequentially on CrystalDiskMark. And maximum 153MB/s read and 136MB/s write on ATTO Disk Benchmark. By the way, tests were done with Transcend USB 3.0 card reader with Windows 8. High transfer rate will definitely increase your productivity as lesser time is required to transfer photo and video. Plenty time to edit them.The main part the ability to capture 1920 1080 RAW video on Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Yes, it certainly capable to do so. However, it is only for 1920 1080 24p mode only. Not 30p mode as that require more than 103.6MB/s writing speed (and limited by 5d3 itself as its CF controller can write up to 100MB/s only). The test was run with Global Draw OFF. But rest assures that it can also record 1920 1080 24p with Global Draw On. By the way, you can record around 25 minutes 1920 1080 24p RAW video with this 128GB card. Take 64GB version if you don t require to take long footage. As for normal photo shooting, it able to take burst mode up to 24 RAWs continuously.--Summary--128GB Lexar Professional 1066x CompactFlash Card is one of the fastest CF card out there. A great addition for high end SLR camera like Canon EOS 5D Mark III to capture RAW video with ML. Of course, it works great with Nikon and Sony SLR too. 5MAJOR FAIL.. No longer willing to risk using Lexar brand memory. I was using this compact flash card for a client shoot and the card failed while in the camera. The camera could NOT read or access the card. I tried to mount it using a card reader for my computer, it would not mount on my computer either. This was a MAJOR FAIL. Fortunately, I had some Sandisk cards and was able to reshoot and complete my shoot for the client. I am sad to say that I can no longer trust the Lexar brand. Be safe use Sandisk.Fortunately, because AMAZON is so amazing they are replacing the Lexar card. But believe me I will only be using it in a NON-PROFESSIONAL capacity, if at all. Thank you, Amazon!! 1simply because I already know I love them. But because mine are four years old Because I already own four Lexar CF cards, I didn't bother reading the reviews for the ones sold on Amazon, simply because I already know I love them. But because mine are four years old, I felt the need to upgrade, so as to prepare for possible failure of the old cards. Imagine my surprise when I put a new card into my Canon 5D Mark III, shot an ENTIRE session, and come to find there's an error on the card, and while in camera, the 'cannot playback image' message is displayed. While in the card reader on my desktop, the card also fails to open the image, with a message saying 'it's a file that's not supported.' It's a CR2 file, and one that's supported not only by my desktop, but also by my photo software (Lightroom). If you are planning on buying a Lexar card, please do it from a reputable photography shop, because it seems these are hit or miss(I read the recent reviews after my experience). I will definitely be returning both cards that I purchased and ordering from a company other than Amazon (which is not responsible for the bad batch, but I have no interest in getting another corrupt or defective card). Because Lexar comes with photo recovery, I am attempting to recover the images that are as of now not-readable, but the cards will be returned once that attempt has been made. Please note, that I am not an amateur photographer, and yes, I did format the card IN CAMERA before attempting to use it. I will continue buying Lexar brand, but not through Amazon. So add me to all of the one star users that got a bad card and has to return it. Hopefully I can recover the images lost. Jeers to Lexar for producing a bad batch of failed and defective cards. 1Fake Lexar Professional 1066x 64GB CF Card from Amazon Services, Inc My experience was unfortunate and I do not know what to do because this product supposedly performs better then Sandisk.I purchased this Item on 11/4/2018 received the next day opened it up and already noticed the suspicious quality of the CF cards print, as well as the flimsy body. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and tested it on my Canon 5D Mark II, when attempting to record video it lagged to start and cut a few seconds later. I then put in an old 32gb Sandisk Extreme with an advertised write speed of 120 MB/s and it performed smoothly. I was greatly disappointed, especially it being from Amazon Services, Inc.I called and requested a return and replace, I received the second card today 11/7/2018 and it was a fake as well.So, I never got to try the actual product and this review is for the disappointing reliability of Amazon right now. It feels like a gamble and its a terrible waste of time that has me frustrated because I have to shoot this weekend. I put up two photos of what I received from Amazon Services, inc, for everyone to spot the fake. I'm going to try B&H possibly.I hope it doesn't happen to you.- Update: 11/11/208 -I needed a reliable CF card before Saturday 11/10/2018 so I checked out the other sellers and seller Roberts LP had about a 99% rating for $79.99. A few buck more but it seemed legit. I got the card and noticed the difference of a fake and legit card immediately. I won't name all the details so those scammers don't up their game but the most obvious detail is a counterfeit has a matte print, compared to a legit card which has gloss and textured surface. The picture on the right or the one that doesn't look cheap is the legit one. It works for me but maybe I'm still being.......scammed. If you get one return it and demand compensation for wasting your time. Good day to you all 1Very Fast CF card, doesn't seem to be faster than the 1000x but that's ok So I got this card and it was immediately apparent that it was faster than my older 400x cards. I guess that is to be expected. Anyway, I started to wonder just how fast it was. I guess it's pretty new, there were no official reviews on the internet of this cardI did find this thread on the Fred Miranda Forum. [...]. Unfortunately there was no data available for this particular 1066x card. So, I decided I'd add my own. (I'm vw151 on FM) Here is what I found.1DX17-40L @ 24mmF/5.61/4000thISO100fresh batterymanual focus12FPSRAWLexar 32 GB UDMA 7 1066x ------------156 shots in a 30 sec burstI did the test 2x got 155 once, 156 onceAnother metric I thought might be useful in this thread was total size of the files produced to account for the difference in file size made by different cameras. The 1Dx vs the 1D4 for instance.Anyway in both cases, my combined total file size was about 3.19GB Do the math and that works out to about 106MB/second. File sizes are about 21MB per image. I think the frames recorded plus this data gives a clear picture of the card's performance.I have 2 cards. I'm gonna run the test 2 more times with the other card.********************************************OKI did 4 more tests on the 2nd card but changed up the parrameters in the 2nd 2 tests.155 shots 3.23GB RAW 12FPS Avg. 5.16 FPS 107.67MB/sec148 shots 3.11GB RAW 12FPS Avg 4.9 FPS 103.67MB/sec312 shots 1.57GB JPEG 12FPS Avg. 10.4 FPS 52.33MB/sec324 shots 1.63GB JPEG 14FPS, Mirror Locked Avg. 10.8 FPS 54.33MB/secThe interesting thing was, Jpeg @ 12FPS, It didn't sound like I ever got off the buffer but Jpeg @ 14fps it got into the buffer hard at about 10 seconds in. but it still made more pictures in 30 seconds.I also see file transfer rates from the card to an SSD or RAID0 at around 115MB/sec.Please keep in mind these are real world benchmarks, not lab tests. None the less, if I reproduced the test on the FM forum reasonably well it seems the write speed in a 1DX is no better than the 1000x which the tester managed 160 shots in 30 seconds. Nothing wrong with that as the 1066x is just the successor to the 1000x and it seems we are reaching the maximum of the CF interface with these cards. 5If you shoot in burst mode or high ISO, this card is worth it. I purchased the 16GB version, I was previously using (mostly) a pair of 16GB Lexar Professional 400x (60MB/s) cards.I did a test to see how much faster this card was than the 400x. Lexar states that the 400x is rated at a guaranteed 60MB/s rate, where the 1066x is rated up to 160MB/s.I am using these cards in a Canon 5D Mk II. During my test, I used manual mode with the following settings:1/125 secF/4 @ 24mmdaylight WBAF offIS offcontinuous shooting modeISO, see results below I was shooting in RAW with all in camera corrections turned off (which is how I normally shoot anyways). I used a 10 second burst timed by using a timer. This was not scientific, so allow for +/- 1 frame margin of error.400x27 Frames @ ISO 10025 Frames @ ISO 80024 Frames @ ISO 160021 Frames @ ISO 320020 Frames @ ISO 6400The burst would slow at 14-12 frames, depending on the ISO.1066x34 Frames @ ISO 100 (21% faster)32 Frames @ ISO 800 (22% faster)31 Frames @ ISO 1600 (23% faster)29 Frames @ ISO 3200 (28% faster)26 Frames @ ISO 6400 (23%faster)The burst slowed at 17-16 frames, it was very consistent no matter what the ISO was.Now, a 21-28% faster card may not seem to be impressive, but in practice it is very noticeable. One thing I did notice was that the buffer was clearing out 4-5 times faster with the 1066x over the 400x and when the shots started to slow, the 1066x was very consistent and slowed from about 4 frames to 2 frames a sec, in contrast, the 400x would slow to 1-1.5 and would hesitate sometimes.Also, here is another thing to keep in mind; I'm using a camera that was designed and sold in 2008 If you are using a newer model DSLR, your results will most likely be more impressive.I also did a download test to see how much faster it would download. I used a USB 3.0 SanDisk ImageMate all-in-one on a computer using Windows 7 64 bit. I shot 30 images of the same scene onto each card. The 1066x had 604 MB of info and the 400x had 603 MB. The 1066x downloaded them in 6.01 seconds and the 400x did it in 7.60 seconds.My download test showed the 1066x being 21% faster, which is pretty consistent with the in camera results.*An interesting side note; when I was shooting the 30 frames for the download test, the 1066x rate of fire stayed consistent all the way through the 30 frames, the 400x slowed considerably at 25 frames and was maybe doing a frame a second until the 30th frame. *If you don't shoot action, weddings, wildlife, or some other fast changing or moving subject, this card will probably be over kill. If you do use the burst mode with any regularity, I would most definitely recommend getting one (if your camera supports this card). 5A professional's choice . . . As a photojournalist in Houston, I've used Lexar Professional CF cards for many years. In 2009 I bought Lexar Professional 300x CF cards and in 2013 I bought Lexar Professional 1000x UDMA 7 cards. With my most recent camera upgrades I upgraded to these Lexar Professional 1066x UDMA 7 CF cards. These 1066x cards have been around for a long time time and appear well-established and reliable.I've shot thousands of editorial assignments, hundreds of thousands of frames, sometimes under difficult circumstances, and I have never lost or corrupted a single image using Lexar CF cards. I have nothing against the SanDisk Extreme Pro cards, in fact my SD cards are SanDisk, but I've got an almost religious attachment to a product with a perfect track record.So, five stars. If I ever have a problem, you can be sure I will update this review! 5

I guess that is to be expected. Anyway, I started to wonder just how fast it was. I guess it's pretty new, there were no official reviews on the internet of this cardI did find this thread on the Fred Miranda Forum. [...]. Unfortunately there was no data available for this particular 1066x card. So, I decided I'd add my own. (I'm vw151 on FM) Here is what I found.1DX17-40L @ 24mmF/5.61/4000thISO100fresh batterymanual focus12FPSRAWLexar 32 GB UDMA 7 1066x ------------156 shots in a 30 sec burstI did the test 2x got 155 once, 156 onceAnother metric I thought might be useful in this thread was total size of the files produced to account for the difference in file size made by different cameras. The 1Dx vs the 1D4 for instance.Anyway in both cases, my combined total file size was about 3.19GB Do the math and that works out to about 106MB/second. File sizes are about 21MB per image. I think the frames recorded plus this data gives a clear picture of the card's performance.I have 2 cards. I'm gonna run the test 2 more times with the other card.********************************************OKI did 4 more tests on the 2nd card but changed up the parrameters in the 2nd 2 tests.155 shots 3.23GB RAW 12FPS Avg. 5.16 FPS 107.67MB/sec148 shots 3.11GB RAW 12FPS Avg 4.9 FPS 103.67MB/sec312 shots 1.57GB JPEG 12FPS Avg. 10.4 FPS 52.33MB/sec324 shots 1.63GB JPEG 14FPS, Mirror Locked Avg. 10.8 FPS 54.33MB/secThe interesting thing was, Jpeg @ 12FPS, It didn't sound like I ever got off the buffer but Jpeg @ 14fps it got into the buffer hard at about 10 seconds in. but it still made more pictures in 30 seconds.I also see file transfer rates from the card to an SSD or RAID0 at around 115MB/sec.Please keep in mind these are real world benchmarks, not lab tests. None the less, if I reproduced the test on the FM forum reasonably well it seems the write speed in a 1DX is no better than the 1000x which the tester managed 160 shots in 30 seconds. Nothing wrong with that as the 1066x is just the successor to the 1000x and it seems we are reaching the maximum of the CF interface with these cards. 5If you shoot in burst mode or high ISO, this card is worth it. I purchased the 16GB version, I was previously using (mostly) a pair of 16GB Lexar Professional 400x (60MB/s) cards.I did a test to see how much faster this card was than the 400x. Lexar states that the 400x is rated at a guaranteed 60MB/s rate, where the 1066x is rated up to 160MB/s.I am using these cards in a Canon 5D Mk II. During my test, I used manual mode with the following settings:1/125 secF/4 @ 24mmdaylight WBAF offIS offcontinuous shooting modeISO, see results below I was shooting in RAW with all in camera corrections turned off (which is how I normally shoot anyways). I used a 10 second burst timed by using a timer. This was not scientific, so allow for +/- 1 frame margin of error.400x27 Frames @ ISO 10025 Frames @ ISO 80024 Frames @ ISO 160021 Frames @ ISO 320020 Frames @ ISO 6400The burst would slow at 14-12 frames, depending on the ISO.1066x34 Frames @ ISO 100 (21% faster)32 Frames @ ISO 800 (22% faster)31 Frames @ ISO 1600 (23% faster)29 Frames @ ISO 3200 (28% faster)26 Frames @ ISO 6400 (23%faster)The burst slowed at 17-16 frames, it was very consistent no matter what the ISO was.Now, a 21-28% faster card may not seem to be impressive, but in practice it is very noticeable. One thing I did notice was that the buffer was clearing out 4-5 times faster with the 1066x over the 400x and when the shots started to slow, the 1066x was very consistent and slowed from about 4 frames to 2 frames a sec, in contrast, the 400x would slow to 1-1.5 and would hesitate sometimes.Also, here is another thing to keep in mind; I'm using a camera that was designed and sold in 2008 If you are using a newer model DSLR, your results will most likely be more impressive.I also did a download test to see how much faster it would download. I used a USB 3.0 SanDisk ImageMate all-in-one on a computer using Windows 7 64 bit. I shot 30 images of the same scene onto each card. The 1066x had 604 MB of info and the 400x had 603 MB. The 1066x downloaded them in 6.01 seconds and the 400x did it in 7.60 seconds.My download test showed the 1066x being 21% faster, which is pretty consistent with the in camera results.*An interesting side note; when I was shooting the 30 frames for the download test, the 1066x rate of fire stayed consistent all the way through the 30 frames, the 400x slowed considerably at 25 frames and was maybe doing a frame a second until the 30th frame. *If you don't shoot action, weddings, wildlife, or some other fast changing or moving subject, this card will probably be over kill. If you do use the burst mode with any regularity, I would most definitely recommend getting one (if your camera supports this card). 5A professional's choice . . . As a photojournalist in Houston, I've used Lexar Professional CF cards for many years. In 2009 I bought Lexar Professional 300x CF cards and in 2013 I bought Lexar Professional 1000x UDMA 7 cards. With my most recent camera upgrades I upgraded to these Lexar Professional 1066x UDMA 7 CF cards. These 1066x cards have been around for a long time time and appear well-established and reliable.I've shot thousands of editorial assignments, hundreds of thousands of frames, sometimes under difficult circumstances, and I have never lost or corrupted a single image using Lexar CF cards. I have nothing against the SanDisk Extreme Pro cards, in fact my SD cards are SanDisk, but I've got an almost religious attachment to a product with a perfect track record.So, five stars. If I ever have a problem, you can be sure I will update this review! 5
