I've just bought this for my other camera but my first from here was over a year ago. I have been using it with a Sony PD170 and I use it with Sandisk Extreme 64GB Compact Flash (60mb/s) and it works great. I haven't tried other cards but read that this thing prefers the Sandisk ones. I'm not willing to try cheaper cards as a re-shoot is more expensive or impossible = no pay. The 8sec pre record is awesome as you never miss that unexpected moment. One thing I will say is I modded a cheap camera light that uses a Sony NP-F970 battery and I get 19hrs of recording time out of it. Since then I am now using Panasonic Evolta HHR-3XXE Rechargeable AA Batteries (2450mAh) and I get around 5hrs out of them (DV though, my camera's not HD).. This thing has been totally reliable for over a year without any problems. I'll never use tapes again.
