16gb CF $129
« on: July 03, 2007, 09:08:34 AM »
Prices for 16GB Compactflash are starting to descend from the stratosphere.  Newegg is offering an A-Data 16GB card for $129 plus $5 shipping.  A-Data is a reliable second-tier flash memory producer (first tier being Sandisk, Kingston and Lexar).  This 16GB card is rated as "speedy," the slowest of A-Data's ratings.  I'm guessing that puts it around 40X speed category, which is fine for audio recording.

Has anyone tried this card? Specifically wondering if it will work in an FR-2LE or 7xx series recorder.

I have been running this card in my 722 for a couple of months as a back up. I run at 24/48 and have had absolutely no problems. Great card for the price.

Edit to add:

Holy shit, these are getting cheap.

Wow!  Just asked Santa for one of these cards and when I emailed Santa (my sister in law) and provided a link, they were $20 more expensive just last week.

I am only able to get this card in Canada from tiger direct and after shipping and taxes it comes out to $122! Is there anybody in the US who would be willing to order one for me from Newegg at $80 + $5 shipping and then drop ship to me? I would *greatly* appreciate the help! I wish pricing would adjust itself online to account for the strong canadian dollar...

I'll do that for you Andrew.  Can you wait until just after New Years because I asked my sisters-in-law to gang up and buy this same card for me for Christmas and if they didn't get it for me, I'll order two of them.  Our family Christmas is a few days after Christmas this year, so that's why I'm asking if you can wait.

Steve, thanks for the quick offer! dgodwin actually just helped me out as I'm going to see him on Thursday and we're hoping the card will arrive by then.

I bought one... I'll have it and my 660 back and I'll let you know. Doug Oade says to use 4gb cards in the 660s.

I just bought a Transcend 16 GB 133x CF card for my Deva 5.8 for $83. I have it working doing simultaneous record/mirror with 8 channels at 96 kHz, without too much lag*.

I've been tempted to see how well the Samsung 32 GB cards work, but you can buy multiple 16 GB cards for the price of a single 32 GB card right now. Maybe after the prices fall a bit I'll try.

* The Deva's multi-record function works a bit differently, the initial audio goes on the hard drive, then audio is "mirrored" onto the CF card. It puts as much data as it can on the card as fast as it can, but depending on the number of channels and sampling rate, the mirroring function can get behind. When this happens, you don't loose any data, it simply takes it a while after pressing stop for the remaining data to write to the CF card.
