Compared with Kingston’s pricier 600x CF card, the 266x achieves a faster write speed of 20.9MB/s in a Canon EOS 7D, as opposed to just 16.3MB/s, making it much better value for money.

It comes in 16GB and 32GB capacities, both backed by a lifetime warranty.

Pros… Reasonable performance for a CF card, at a budget price
Cons… Rather slower than the best CF cards in the group
