Victim of another CF Card Failure

Interesting.  I had a 32GB Kingston CF card fail in my MarkIII.  I was able to retrieve most of the files.  The card would work for a while so I could download, and then stop working for no apparent reason.  Fortunately, Kingston has a lifetime warranty, and they replaced the card for free.  They even worked with me to try to recover the files.  Lost a few, but it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

I just wonder if this is a common problem with the cards or the camera.  I may start using the SD backup as someone mentioned.
