The Toshiba Exceria 1000x is a high performance UDMA7 CompactFlash card. Toshiba offers two flavors of Exceria Compact Flash cards: the top level Exceria Pro 1066x and the Exceria 1000x. While both cards offer high read speeds, the main difference between them is write speed. The Pro 1066x boasts 160MB/s read and 150MB/s write speeds, while the Exceria 1000x claims 150MB/s read and 120MB/s write speeds.
The Exceria 1000x carries the Video Performance Guarantee rating of VPG-20. This means the card will support at least 20MB/s continuous recording for video. The Exceria 1000x cards are offered in 32, 64 and 128 GB capacities. This review covers the 32GB card.
Peak read and write speeds were evaluated in card reader benchmark tests. The Exceria 1000x 32GB was tested in several USB 3.0 card readers. The sequential read speed exceeded its 150MB/s rating and reached 158.2 MB/s in the Lexar CFR1 CompactFlash Card Reader. The highest sequential write speed of 110.6 MB/s was found using the Kingston FCR-HS4 Card Reader. The 32GB card measured about 8 MB/s slower than the 64GB version and didn't quite fulfill Toshiba's 120MB/s write speed claim.
