      No faster than Class 10 Micro-SD in A55

      Sony claims this card is fast, but that is not exactly true. The buffer in my Sony A55 still takes about 25 seconds to clear, the same as it does with my old Class 10 Micro-SD cards (A-Data brand). It MAY be fast in some products, such as the Sony A77 camera (and presumably some other newer cameras) and some card readers, but it is no faster in my 1 year old MacBook Air or my Sony A55. I read that even the Sony A65 does not write at UHS-1 speeds either. Yes, the fault is the products that use the cards, and NOT the card itself. Oh well. Presumably the Sony A65 can write faster than my Sony A55, but who knows? I tested this card in a few computers at the [*], and even in the newest 15" MacBook Pro with retina display it does not read or write much faster than my MacBook Air with my old Class 10 Micro-SD cards. In the very newest MacBook though, the 13" MacBook Pro with the retina display, the card reader must be newer and faster, because this card works much faster in that computer.I don't like SD cards. Two of them have broken on my (the write protect switches break off and make the cards useless to write to - at least the data can be read off them). I use Micro-SD cards instead, for that reason. Unfortunately this card is just and SD card. It works fine as such, except I could swear sometimes it seems to operate slowly. Sometimes it seems like I'm waiting forever for my buffer to clear. I am not sure about this though. Maybe it's just me (perceived slowness, because I am wanting to shoot more or change out memory cards quickly or something).I gave it a 4 start rating, becauase I just can't give 5 stars to a product when it doesn't improve my experience. It works. It doesn't make MY relatively new products any faster, but then they aren't the newest models either, so I can't really blame the memory card for the lack of speed. It just seems like there are a lot of products out there that are NOT compatible as far as reading and writing to this card faster than to a regular old Class 10 Micro-SD card, and when that's the case, what's the point in getting THIS more expensive card? Sony tries to sell this card for ridiculous prices! At least B&H understands that there is very little about this card that makes it better than the cheaper Class 10 cards . . . and then only for people who have the latest equipment that can take advantage of the faster card.So far this card has been completely reliable. If it had not been, I would have given it a 3 star rating or less.

        This card is incredibly fast, especially when downloading to your computer. It takes just a second to download a minute of full 1080/60p footage from my Sony A65.

            Good enough for my needs. It will store tons of high quality photos along with the occasional video. I just transfer the contents to my PC erase/format card and I'm good to go again. For me it will cover any occasion with no need for another card.

              I use it with a Sony A55 and A3000. Sometimes with raw and jpg capture. Seems almost instantaneous.

              Didn't need larger amount of GB's, just faster read and write speeds.

                      I have other Sony cards and they have never failed me before. I needed this for my GX1 and fits the bill perfectly in terms of speed and reliability.

Have had now issues with the durability of the product, have used the same model for the past six months, replacing a trusted San Disk of lesser storage. When shooting video or bracketing this card is a champ, especially given the price point (more so when on sale).

                          How do ya get excited about a memory card? I must like 'em 'cause I've purchased several of these in the past and I keep ordering them. Never had a problem (knock,knock). Fast enough for me. I use 'em in my Pentax K5 and K20D. Only 4 stars 'cause nothin's perfect.

                            I use it for photography and found it to be very accommodating. I like to do sports photography and multiple shots per second is a norm. Where many other cards tend to hang and slow up in processing, this Sony card looks to keep up, and not keep me from missing that next great shot. I am very pleased.

                                    These little memory cards seem to work fine and as advertised. I use these on my Leica M(240) and my Sony A7R and everything seems OK.

                                      I use it in my DSLR shooting raw and it keeps up just fine. Haven't done any video with it yet, but I'd guess it works fine for that as well. And it was on sale, so even better.

                                      My old SDHC card was not fast enough to record HD video on Canon 6D.
                                      This can do that. Great performance.
