SanDisk Extreme IV review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Tuesday 19th, September 2006

Some developments are so ground breaking that you just have to give them your attention. Take the new SanDisk Extreme IV CompactFlash memory cards, for example; they are already ahead of things that have not even been put on the market yet. With the Extreme IV CF, SanDisk is so far ahead of the competition that they don't stand a chance of catching up with them in the foreseeable future. SanDisk was already firmly in control of the professional memory card market, partly due to the Extreme III card. The introduction and sale of the SanDisk Extreme IV gives professional photographers a very interesting solution to problems with memory. Let's take a look at the figures: Extreme III has a very respectable speed of 20MB/sec for both reading and writing data. Nothing wrong with that, you would think, but the SanDisk Extreme IV CompactFlash memory card does 40MB/sec. This is double the speed and means that SanDisk has produced the fastest memory card in the world!
