... as long as you're not expecting 90MB/sec *write* speed. That comes in at about 45MB/sec, which is still smokin' hot fast. But they do indeed *read* at 90+MB/sec. Now I can already hear the protests: "I didn't get that kind of speed." or "Mine isn't anywhere near that fast." etc. Well, the problem is your CARD READER. (or if you're somehow measuring the speed internal to your camera or other device, then it doesn't support the SDHC extensions that enable UHS-1) Anyway, there's no card reader that plugs into USB2 that has any hope of achieving the full speed of this card (and many other cards, for that matter), even if it has the UHS-1 extensions, and that's because USB2 just isn't fast enough. You would need USB3 for this, and as of the end of 2011, there are no card readers that use USB3 and have the proper card protocols.

All is not lost, however. There is a single card reader made by Transcend (I have one of these) that plugs into the ExpressCard slot (that's PCIe configured for external device use) in your laptop and that can run this card at full speed. That's good news #1. Good news #2 is that the Transcend reader isn't even expensive and you might be able to find it here at B&H. You should be able to find it for under $25.

Advice: Do not assume that your device will support the full speed of this card. SanDisk has a useful product compatibility tool where you can find appropriate products for the equipment you own. Use this before spending too much on flash memory.

So there you have it. As usual, SanDisk has demonstrated that they make the leading product in every category, and this card is no exception.

If 0 was possible, I would go with that. Had disk for 2 weeks. On Saturday after shooting 300 images for an event, camera would no longer recognize disk. Insert into card reader on computer but computer says can't read because of i/o error. Call SanDisk (call center in Middle East) and they recommend a 3rd party vendor to get information off there for $225. Downloaded Stellar Photo Recovery for [$]. Sees .nef files but when go to actually recover Lightroom says they are corrupt. Previously used Sony SD cards and NEVER had a problem. Went to Sandisk for speed and other reviews. Wish I stuck with the slower reliable cards. Lessons learned.

          I really hate how Lexar markets their cards; what's 600x means, it seems to me that they are stuck in the 90's selling CD Drives.Sandisk tells you exactly what speed your card is and they indeed deliver, it makes my new Nikon D750 to empty the buffer quicker so I can keep shooting. I never had a problem with any Sandisk card, they are very reliable.

            Fast card, good price. I've never had a SanDisk card give me any problems. This UHS-I card is the fastest card for my Nikon D610 since it isn't a UHS-II compatible camera.

                        This SD card is the fastest U1 class 10 card you can buy. Sandisk reliability is second to none and comes with a lifetime warranty. I wouldn't risk getting a slower, less reliable card to save a measly few bucks.

                                    Hey...its a memory card.Purchased for my new Canon G7x, this MC allows me to maximize the camera's capabilities. I'm looking for optimal read / write speeds to quickly record an image and send via wi-fi to share with others. I do not consider the 16GB capacity as a limitation as its for personal use, i.e. key events wedding or trips Rome; ample space.

                                          This is a good, high speed data storage card for use where high speed digital data transfer is a must.

                                            Would strongly recommend for cam's, these high end cards are worth the extra money for use in video cams, I use in my trail cams as well.

                                              I use this card with my Canon DSLR and I see a noticeable improvement in the ability of the camera to process photos in rapid succession as compared to my older cards. Also, much faster to download onto my MacBook. Great price and definitely worth the upgrade to this fast card.

                                                  I use this for shooting stills and video of fast moving wildlife and glacier calvings. The faster read/write is great and is a great value for the price.

                                                  Bought this card after reading about its performance and also after owning two Lexar Professional cards and i can say that this card is fast! The Lexar cards would slow down and load after taking 5 burst shots of RAW and JPEG photos but this card is ready to take more right after and doesn't load. Formating the card in the camera is super quick and playback as well. Copying photos to the computer is also fast! I am planning on purchasing 2 more 16gb cards and i highly recommend!
