      I use in Nikon d3200 and shoot fine/raw for photoshop. This allows for many shots without the constant swapping memory cards. The capacity allows me to shoot many shots and discard the ones not needed and not have to worry about how many more shots are possible. I have yet to find any negatives for this memory card.

      I am not sure how to rate this card. I own 2 of them (just got them earlier this week) and initial testing showed that they would not handle ProRes HQ (22 MB/s) or ProRes 422 (15 MB/s), so I went with ProRes LT for the concert I shot last night. The footage looks fine, and the cards recorded consistently for 3.5 hours of shooting at that rate, which shows stability, but they didn't have anywhere near the reported speeds that they say that they do on the cards. This is confusing to me for several reasons.1. If you advertise that you get 90MB/s read time and 60MB/s write time, your cards should be able to do that. Occasional allocation issues might come up, slowing you down slightly, but I shouldn't have a problem reaching 30% of the max write speed every single time. That is a huge issue for me.2. The smaller versions of this card (Elite Pro 64 GB and Elite Pro 128 GB) are supported for ProRes HQ footage by BlackMagic. I was under the impression that larger cards are supposed to be faster because of how they access the memory, not slower.3. Both cards have the exact same issues and tolerances. This means that it is extremely unlikely that I got a bad card, but more likely that either PNY is suddenly not living up to their previous QC, or that there is something else fishy going on with these cards.I finally got around to doing a BlackMagic Disk Speed Test on the cards today and found that they are getting very irratic results, ranging from 11MB/s up to 40MB/s. Not once have I seen it get near the reported 60MB/s range.The 11MB/s test result certainly explains why I am not able to record in ProRes 422 or ProRes HQ on my BMPCC, but it doesn't explain why another reviewer on here was able to do so with no issues whatsoever.It does not appear to matter whether the cards are formatted HFS+ or ExFAT, by the way.

        I have installed this memory in my FujiFilm S-1 set t RAW/Fine I get just over 8000 pictures. It seem very fast, un-noticeable delay in saving pictures. I would buy it again. I may move it to my Fujifilm X-T1.

              Excellent for recording in 4K, 30P. No problems in shooting over 5 hours of 4K. But I found out that it does not read reliably in the 1080p-60fps@200Mbps mode. It will give an error "Insufficient Write Speed to Media" and then stop. You'll have to restart but it will do that again in a few minutes. Good thing I got the Panasonic UHS-3 64GB card.

                      In my computer the best speeds I can get is 13MBs reads and 8MBs writes. While the Dell studioxps is 4 years old, it still is 2.5 GigaHertz dual core and can do hard disk access at 100MBs.So the advertised 90/60MBs doesn't represent real world experience.

                          I was reluctant to purchase this item but so far, it's working great for me. I wanted to start shooting Raw and JPEG. This takes us tons of space so I wanted to have a card that would make this possible. Even with my 24 megapixel D5300 shooting both Raw and JPEG, I have literally thousands of shots available on this card. No worries about running out of space when traveling for several days. Very happy with this purchase in general.

                              First off, this card does not perform as fast as it claims, especially compared to my Sandisk and Lexar cards. Secondly, on the 2nd time I used the card, the last 1000 pictures (around 75% of the pictures I took on it) became corrupt. I can view them on my camera, but not on my Mac. As a wedding photographer this is unacceptable and I will not purchase this item again.

                                256G of storage now gives me peace of mind when I am out in the field capturing video on my DSLR. It's fast and reliable and allows me to capture at the camera's highest quality without having to worry about storage space. In a pinch I can edit directly from the card on my NLE and not have to worry about carrying extra drives around with me.

                                      This is as fast as anything I have used except Sandisk Extreme Pro which writes at about 90MB/sec. This one does 60. They both read about 90. i have done some extensive stress testing and, so far, it has been bulletproof. I get about 6.5 hours of continuous UHD recording on a Lumix GH4, if I am powered by AC.

                                        I bought this for my Nikon D7000 and I'm very pleased by it. Now, I have more than enough memory for my pictures and videos. What it more, I got 256GB memory for less than a $ after rebate.It is my first time to use PNY and I'm not sure how reliable it is as compared to other brands like SanDisk. It remains to be seen.

                                                  I am not sure how to rate this card. I own 2 of them (just got them earlier this week) and initial testing showed that they would not handle ProRes HQ (22 MB/s) or ProRes 422 (15 MB/s), so I went with ProRes LT for the concert I shot last night. The footage looks fine, and the cards recorded consistently for 3.5 hours of shooting at that rate, which shows stability, but they didn't have anywhere near the reported speeds that they say that they do on the cards. This is confusing to me for several reasons.1. If you advertise that you get 90MB/s read time and 60MB/s write time, your cards should be able to do that. Occasional allocation issues might come up, slowing you down slightly, but I shouldn't have a problem reaching 30% of the max write speed every single time. That is a huge issue for me.2. The smaller versions of this card (Elite Pro 64 GB and Elite Pro 128 GB) are supported for ProRes HQ footage by BlackMagic. I was under the impression that larger cards are supposed to be faster because of how they access the memory, not slower.3. Both cards have the exact same issues and tolerances. This means that it is extremely unlikely that I got a bad card, but more likely that either PNY is suddenly not living up to their previous QC, or that there is something else fishy going on with these cards.I finally got around to doing a BlackMagic Disk Speed Test on the cards today and found that they are getting very irratic results, ranging from 11MB/s up to 40MB/s. Not once have I seen it get near the reported 60MB/s range.The 11MB/s test result certainly explains why I am not able to record in ProRes 422 or ProRes HQ on my BMPCC, but it doesn't explain why another reviewer on here was able to do so with no issues whatsoever.It does not appear to matter whether the cards are formatted HFS+ or ExFAT, by the way.

                                                    Comments about PNY Technologies 256GB Elite Performance SDXC Class 10 UHS-1 Memory Card:

                                                    I use this for shooting fullHD video as well as high resolution photos. It's fast and does both of these tasks well. Great speed, great price, very reliable (so far...only had it a few weeks, but working well).
