... 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.

This card provides a significant decrease in read/write times over standard SD card I was using. What would take 20-30 seconds, or more, to process now takes around 5 seconds.
This is a great memory card. I have used this specific type for a while and never had any issues. Cheap and Fast with no issues.
I use a TASCAM DR70D and have been struggling with an error that will pop right in the middle of a scene in my previous projects. This in spite of using the fastest cards on the market. I did a search on comparability cards with the device and found that it was a very specific list. The only one that I could find was this one on since the list was a few years old. I popped it in and didn't have a single issue this time around. That was one less thing to worry about. Great card.
This card was buffering like a pre pentium computer. I was shooting a concert and it stunk up the joint. Nikon D800, Nikor 70 -200 lens. I took it out and swapped it with a four year old card that smoked it. Never the less, I will continue to purchase from B & H till my bank account is empty.
Slower than molasses. I may have got a faulty one but it buffered on a Nikon D7200 to the point where I took it out and put in a four year old card that smoked it. Still Love B & H and will continue to exclusivly purchase all my gear with them.
Great cards fast writing speeds.
I use this in my Canon 70D and 5D. I have no complaints.
Excellent response, fast recording and no failures.
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 :)
