Hands down, the fastest CF Card Available

Pros: fast fast and faster, udma speed
Cons: expensive
"I'm a pro wedding and event photographer and shoot with an EOS 1D Mk III, 1Ds Mk III, and a few 5D's and can say that this Extreme IV series of cards (UDMA) are absolutely fast beyond words.
There is never a backup in my camera's buffer even when I'm hammering out photos at 10 frames per second. In short, if you want the best, go with the Extreme IV series.
However, if you don't have a high end pro level Canon or Nikon body that outputs data at such rapid speeds, then it's best to save your money and go with the Extreme III series of cards. Using this Extreme IV card on a non-pro level camera is like putting a supercharged muscle car engine in a Pinto...obviously, the "chain is only as strong as its weakest link.""
