A great little card. No hiccups whatsoever when used with my Canon HF200 which requires the class 6 card. I have only had it one week but have used Lexar for years now and expect this one to last well over 5 years with a little care.
Provides plenty of space for hours of recording in the LP and slightly compressed storage modes.

I use this card on my canon t2i, and its great for pictures, but after a maximum of 10 seconds of video, the video wil be "stopped automatically" as the error message reads. I will be returning it and getting a class 10.

      Amazing that I can get so much data on this card. It's easy to get in and out of my camera and into my MAC using a card reader. What a delight!

        Although I haven't performed any benchmark test to check the actual speed rating, the memory seems to be running great in my HD Camcorder. The download transfer rates are pretty good too.

              Although not the fastest card out there, I figured out it will work fine on my camera. There's no need to spend extra on speed i'll never utilize.

                        I wanted a 16GB class 6 SDHC for under $30 and this is what it is. It seemed to write/ read slower than my ScanDisk Exteme III 2 GB, but I am able to record video on my Pansonica LX5 with no problem. (It did take 3 tries in and out of my camera to get it to recognize the card so I can format it, but after that no problem)

                        For me, I expected to get what I paid for, and it is giving me what I need. If you want high performance, you will be disappointed.

                                      It works just as it should no, problems so far in a week of using it.

                                            Got this for use in my D90 for photos and video for a three week long trip. Worked without any problems.

                                              I wouldn't trust any other brand of SDHC card than Lexar. Always quality images.
