... 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.

Should have gone with the 280 MB/s

I wasn't sure if I needed 280 MB/s but now I wish I had spent the extra money and bought the faster card. The 95 MB/s just feels slow. Thankfully this card was purchased as a backup. I have two 16 GB compact flash cards that read 160 MB/s and those are great. If you aren't shooting action the 95 MB/s is sufficient.

Very fast card. Fit my needs with a Sony a7rii. Love sandisk.
Does what it supposed to do
Can't go wrong with SanDisk. This is a great fast SD card.
Very good quality.
I have been using SanDisk memory cards, since my first digital camera, back in 2005 and never experienced any problem. Very reliable and very fast.
This product is great for storing files, its very reliable and easy to use.
I use this card with my Canon 6D camera and the speed is incredible. I love it!
Works as expected. Very reliable.
I recently purchased a Nikon D500, and a 64 GB SD card was included. When I tried uploading files into
Adobe Bridge, I discovered that Bridge did not recognize the card. I then did some research online to see if other people were having the same problem, and one of the answers involved the fact that in some cases, people who had an iMac running El Capitan were in the same boat. There was a suggestion that smaller SD cards were being recognized by El Capitan, so as an experiment I ordered the SanDisk 16 GB card. I just started uploading images into Bridge and so far, so good. As of this moment I'm giving a four star rating not because there's been any problems, just that I want to see what's happening down the road.
This is the card I have used with my D7100 for a couple years now. Have never been disappointed.
I just keep getting more of the same. Never failed me :)
I am a professional photographer andI have used SanDisk cards for some time with good result. I bought two of these (16GB) for my Leica(s) M8 and ME, in my opinion, these cards used in these two cameras provide better images than other brands. In the Leica(s) for some reason, color is recorded more accurately than other cards. I also use the 16 and 32GB cards in my Nikon camera with excellent result.
The Memoy Card I am still not diference another.
I have been using SanDisk drives for years and always know it is a reliable media for the pros. Just one issue I noticed. The lock slide seems to move to the Locked position when you reinsert card back in camera.
Extreme works well in Alaska's harsh weather
I've been burned by cards that are cheaper. Crash. Lose data. Etc. SanDisk is excellent and the B&H prices were just fine.
I've been using SanDisk ExtremePro SD cards for as long as I've been using smaller cameras. They aren't the newest ,fastest, or the biggest cards, but they work just fine, I personally like using several smaller GB cards for travel, as I don't like putting all my trip memories on one large card. If it is damaged or lost, my pictures would be gone with the card. I accidentally washed a card in the pocket of a shirt one time when I wasn't paying attention. Fortunately for me, nothing was on that card, but I learned something from the experience !
Used on a Canon 70D. I only use SanDisk products with this camera. This card always allows me to shoot at full speed (7fps) without a hiccup. Shooting RAW does slow down a bit though. I also do a lot of video and have no problem with Full HD, All-I.
The majority of my pictures are of nature photography. These cards have endured all weather conditions, heat,cold,wet conditions, and rugged terrain. I appreciate the water proof and shock resistance they provide. I've made enlargements up to 30"X40" with excellent results. If I thought there was a better card out-there I would be using it. Larry
