Transcend 400X... regret

I thought I could try these Transcend 400X as I heard good things about that.
I bought one CF 16GB and two SD 16GB.
I've always used sandisk or lexar and never had problems...

During my last wedding I had this CF in my 1DsmkIII. The sandisk and lexar were at home since I shooted another wedding the day before.

Long story short: the transcend CF was horrible!! I missed a lot of shots because the camera was always busy reading... no comment!

The other camera I use for wedding, a mkIV didn't miss a shot though. But as the wedding was over I did realize that with the mkIV I used sandisk.

Furthermore, a couple of times the 1Ds3 wasn't even able to read the cards, a strange message appeared on the display, don't remember what it was.
I will never buy transcend anymore!!
