I'd caution that I'm a novice user, but I bought the card to go in my new Nikon P100 camera. I originally bought a class 4 card, but the P100 requires a class 6 card or above to run smoothly. So, I ordered this card given the great price [$]. The P100 listed a couple mfg's that they tested, and while PNY wasn't one of them, I figured I'd gamble on what seemed to be a reputable company. So far, the card seems to be able to keep up with the video and continuous shooting modes, which is all I could think to ask of it. Good luck -- I'll try to remember to update this if I encounter any problems!

Was using this card for a shoot of a race (fast action shooting). It did well until when it became half full and then it would lock up and cause a "busy" prompt. This caused me to miss many pics which didn't make my boss happy!!
I would NOT classify this card as a Class 10, as someone else said it should be a class 6.

I also have the 8 GB version of this card and it has been giving me error messages lately!!

I'm switching to SanDisk ASAP!!

    This is the second one I've purchased. The first one I have had for over a year and a half. It has been very reliable and still works great. I purchased the second one because I had another 16GB SD card (made by a different company) break.

      Comments about PNY Technologies 16GB SDHC Memory Card High Speed Class 10:

      Memory cards are inexpensive these days. I was not sure which one to buy, as B&H provided three options... but I know that OCZ builds gamer PC memory, so when they advertized that this was fast memory, I believed them... you know what... they speak the truth. This is excellent memory. Absolutely nothing bad to say about it. Buy it. It is worth it, and the price CANNOT be beaten for this quality.

          The Memory card is fast enough and 16gb is good enough for me to go on shooting on the photoshoots. It takes a little time when i copy it to system, but its comparatively better

            I use this card on my sony ax2000 camcorder for shooting weddings and corporate shoots. I have never had an issue with these cards and the video and audio come out great. The price has dropped like a rock on these cards. I paid almost $50 in 2011 and now it's less than half the price. Can't go wrong with this card....good buy.

                  I got this 16GB class 10 for my compact camera. I will be using it in my camera and the speed will help me when I am shooting moving people, water, or vehicles. The price was lower than any store i checked locally or on the internet. Plus B & H photo has always delivered my purchase within the time they say they will or faster. I will continue to use them for all of my camera and video needs. Keep up the good work B & H.

                                  This is by far the greatest SDHC Memory card I have purchased yet. It was cheaper than the other two I own and it's a class 10, where my other two are class 4. It is great for the HD video. I don't experience any lagging in the quality. I recommend these to everyone.

                                    Was using this card for a shoot of a race (fast action shooting). It did well until when it became half full and then it would lock up and cause a "busy" prompt. This caused me to miss many pics which didn't make my boss happy!!
                                    I would NOT classify this card as a Class 10, as someone else said it should be a class 6.

                                    I also have the 8 GB version of this card and it has been giving me error messages lately!!

                                    I'm switching to SanDisk ASAP!!

                                        I bought 3 of these before my trip to Alaska, and when I arrived I found out that they buffered too much and stopped the recording after almost every 10 seconds. I was stuck on a job with no way to get more media. I contacted PNY, and they said to "format" the cards. Of course I did and did again. Still have major issues with any recording of video. Needless to say, selling the cards and buying Lexar or SanDisk.
