CF Cards: Team? TopRAM? Transcend?
« on: May 16, 2013, 11:09:33 AM »
I need to get a 2GB card for my R-1, and I was looking on New Egg, and they have some really cheap, like under $10. Problem is, they're brands I've never heard of: Team, TopRAM and Transcend. Anyone ever use these brands? A SanDisk from Amazon is $16 plus shipping. Yeah, I'm being a cheapskate, but we're talking a $10 price difference here. That's a couple of beers at a show!

Of those the only one I've heard of is Transcend. I have a small (128MB) Transcend card that came with a Fostex FR2LE. I used it for testing the unit then promptly replaced it with a much larger card.

Transcend is sort of a name brand (if it is a legit/non-counterfeit one).

It could be $10 vs. a lost recording though...  With a few things you may get what you pay for (or don't).   
Gear:
Audio:
Schoeps MK4V
Nak CM-100/CM-300 w/ CP-1's or CP-4's
SP-CMC-25
>
Oade C mod R-44  OR
Tinybox > Sony PCM-M10 (formerly Roland R-05) 
Video: Varied, with various outboard mics depending on the situation

NewEgg is a safer bet then ebay but it's still possible to get conterfit's through NewEgg but very unlikely - there was a rash of fake processors that made it through NewEgg a few years back

Music can at the least least explain you and at the most expand you
