Your choice of CF cards obviously works fine with your choice of memory chip. That's a fact, and I'm happy that it works for you.
However, don't claim that it will work for others. Those who have a working setup should either be prepared to go through lots of CF cards to get a setup "back to working", or to remove the chip again. I'm not so sure if these customers will be as satisfied as they are right now. Will you do customer support for them?
