Toshiba Exceria 1000x 64GB CompactFlash Card Front

Introduction

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 has 150MB/s read and 120MB/s write speed.

The Exceria 1000x has a VPG-20 designation, meaning that is supports at least 20MB/s continuous recording of video. It is offered in 32, 64 and 128 GB capacities. The 64GB capacity card is tested here.
