80X!??? Who let marketing loose on this?

In short their was not speed standard for CF cards so the X value was measured against the old 150 KBPS CDROM speed. That gives us fantanbulous numbers.

The speed I see on PDAs and even cameras didn't budge on any of the dozen plus cards we tried. We did find one old card that underperformed all the rest, but it was very first generation and was likely just old and tired.

On PDAs the speed is more likely to be constrained by the PDA and not the CF.

Lexar, Sandisk are nice. We also use the SimpleTech line and others. I can't tell much difference in today's offerings. Sadly, no unbiased studies were done plus it wouldn't matter since what's inside the CF housing does change every few months.

so basically for viewing videos and listening to music on a ppc doesn't really depend of cf speeds ( read/write specs) won't really affect how fast I can open a file on the actual ppc and run it without lag?

thanks again, bob

You'll have to run your own tests, but here, not much was noted. And certainly all played back such content with easy.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
