I've had failures with both of my Kingston 32GB cards. They refused to work after a few pictures even after formatting and stuff. In fact, I thought I had a whole day of shooting at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. I lined up a shot of the Saturn V rocket engine perfectly and pressed the shutter button and all I had was "FEE" on LCD display and no picture. I checked all my bags for an extra CF card and apparently I left them all in the trunk of the car. So the rest of the day was without pictures.

The two replacement Lexar 400x 32GB cards have had corrupt pictures after a while and one had a total card fail after a format. I used their warranty and got new ones. I have a 600x 32GB Lexar and that one hasn't let me down yet. And before someone asks, no, I don't delete pictures from the camera, only after I transfer them to my PC.

I don't know about the 8 or 16GB cards and how reliable they are. My 4GB Sandisk, though, hasn't missed a beat since the day I bought the D700 and the card together. In fact, I knew that was my most reliable card so when it came time to shoot the space shuttle taking off I used the 4GB Sandisk.
