Customer Reviews of Viking 512MB CompactFlash Card - 512 MB
The first card I got had some issues. But the replacement has worked fine. I've had it for almost a year and its been great. I am using it on my Canon A80 digital camera.
Works great! Lots of room.7/8/2005
This card works great! It gives me a lot of storage for an unbelievable price. Now I don't have to worry about filling up the memory card when out for a shoot.
I'm using it with Canon PowerShot S410 and it works well

I have purchased multiple viking flash cards over a 3 year period. I have never had one fail and always get my rebates.
Works just as memory should - quickly and without failure. Good product.

Very quick delivery, easy rebate process, love it!
Broke after second use10/6/2004
Purchased card for use in digital camera. In second use my card's data became corrupted. A data recovery service declared that the card had physical damage, and therefore data recovery was impossible. Unsure if the damage was my fault, but the card never left my camera in the transition from good to corrupted, and my camera was never jolted, subjected to extremes of temperatures, and experienced nothing damaging during the time when I discovered the card corrupted. Therefore, I believe that the card was defective from the start.
Many errors writing and reading from memory8/17/2004
I guess you get what you pay for. This inexpensive memory certainly acts like it. I receive many errors writing and reading from the memory. This is bad news when you're trying to take pictures as they just get corrupted. Even using it to just copy data resulted in errors. Now I have to take the time and trouble to return it.
Good price after rebate. Don't expect fast performance.
received the compact flash card and it failed immediately in my digital camera. tried to return it to buy.com, but because I had completed the rebate and cut out the upc, buy.com said i had not returned package in original packaging and refused to replace it. fortunately, vikings's customer support is much better and they will replace it. hopefully, it the new one will work better.
