    Pay for the (burst) speed you get

    When shooting RAW images with a modern DSLR (16+ Megapixels) continuously the first few pictures go quickly and buffer into the camera's internal memory. While you continue to shoot the camera writes files in memory to your memory card. When the camera's memory fills up it will slow down taking new pictures because it is now limited by the write speed of your SD card. The interval between shots (after the camera's buffer filled) was a little bit shorter with the Extreme Pro than it was with the Extreme Plus SDHC card. In most cases this small difference won't matter, but if you have the money this is the fastest card available now (a newly announced Extreme Pro card is 3x faster, but not yet available). If you aren't worried about high speed burst shooting (not shooting sports or semi-pro) then I would recommend saving some money and stepping down to the almost as fast SanDisk Extreme Plus line. Faster cards that can max out the write speed of pro DSLR's are in the pipeline, but not yet available so save your money if you don't need the storage immediately.

    Best SDHC card for most Linux-based devices

    This is probably the best SDHC card for most Linux-based devices including Android-based devices that accept full-sized SDHC cards because it is fast, large, and is able to handle the FAT32 file system that Linux-based devices can use and which SDHC requires. SDXC cards are no good for Linux and Android because they require the exFAT file system, which Linux and Android devices legally cannot handle until the patent expires. If you use the wrong file system on any card in the SD family, its controller cannot be guaranteed to be able to keep data corruption free because it might try to discard invalid data but could be confused on what data is valid or not if the wrong file system is present. Therefore, Linux and Android devices are limited to SD, SDHC, miniSD, miniSDHC, microSD, and microSDHC, and this card is the best for these devices unless they come with a UHS-II reader, in which case a UHS-II card should be used instead of this one.

    Bought the Wrong Device, But Can Use it Anyway

    I had relied on the chat representative to find a memory card for my Canon VixiaMini camcorder that I was purchasing at the same time. It turned out that this was W-A-Y too big for the VixiaMini, but the good news is that it fits my Canon Powershot camera, so I didn't return it, but kept it for use with that camera. SanDisk puts out excellent products, and I already have memory cards from them so I'm sure this one will be every bit as reliable and well-wearing as my others. It was an expensive error, and I still had to invest in the mini-memory card for the VixiaMini camcorder, which was even more expensive, but all's well that ends well since I can still use this memory card. Just be careful of what you're purchasing when it comes to mini-size hardware so that you don't go through the double expense that I went through. The customer rep should have known which card to sell me, or said that she didn't know.

    Yes the higher end memory cards do make a differsnce I was using sand disk ultra plus before which isn’t a cheap or slow memory card to begin with but after. I upgraded to this model I noticed a huge differsnce right away I’m able to take photos quicker then before they look clearer download times are even crazy quicker then before and I thought they were already fast. After this card I went and bought the extreme version and that one was an even bigger upgrade people it’s true the quality of your work does help with better equipment even down to the SD cards. Catch then right now on the pre Black Friday sales I was able to get this one for 19.99 and the 64gb san disk extreme pro for 24.99. Huge savings right now.

    Quality is worth the money

    I originally bought a 32 GB PNY class 10 (20MB/sec) card for my Canon 60D DSLR camera. Although, I think it was more of a problem with the 60D than the PNY card, the PNY card was not fast enough when recording in full 1080p video. With this card, I have had no issues. I still use the PNY card for shooting photos or taking non-HD movies. Regardless, I definitely notice a difference when using this card, and when transfering images to my computer. This card is really for demanding users (at 45MB/sec). Its expensive, but it solved my HD video recording problems.

    Was having issues during recording with my t3i. I was using a 32gb sandisk ultra sdhc with a 30mb/s write speed. Video would stop sporadically during shooting. Extremely frustrating. Canon forums revealed users with similar issues. Most of the solutions offered suggested using a higher write speed. Also worth noting, the Ultra series cards are not the best for video on dslr. The official sandisk site offers a list of compatible cards (here - https://pct1.sandisk.com/ProductList.aspx?DeviceID=17084 ) Best Buy was the only place I could find it. Camera has been functioning properly with this new card.

    32 GB is great if you're going on vacation and want to shoot a whole lot of photos...or perhaps some video. You can get a lot of high resolution photos on a flash card with this much space. Can keep it in your camera without having to carry extra cards which could get lost since they are small and easily misplaced. Go out for a day, or several days and shoot away without fear of running out of shots. When you return home, all your photos from your vacation are on one card ready to download. I always carry a card of this size when I anticipate shooting a lot of photos and want to shoot at the highest resolution possible for good quality prints.

    Awesome SD card - no lag time when taking photos

    Had my camera set to take the highest jpg and raw images and there was no lag time in processing. I could snap, snap, snap. Love the faster speed and higher quality of this SD card. I chose to get several 32 GB cards rather than larger cards just in case I ever have a an unreadable card issue! Better to lose 32 GB of data than 64 or 128. Just to be on the safe side. But that being said, I have never had an SD card error myself. I do know someone who did though - with a different brand - and we lost all the video footage of my grandfather telling WWII stories. Ughhhh. Because of that minor tragedy, I chose this high quality, fast write speed card at 32 GB. Love it.

    Took 200 high resolution pics

    My main concern with this purchase was: Would 32GB be enough for a small graduation photo shoot? I didn’t want to spend money on storage that I didn’t need as this memory card would be used exclusively for this one photo shoot. It ended up being exactly the amount of storage I needed. We were able to take exactly 200 high resolution pictures on a professional grade camera. Downloading was quick as well- it took me longer to find the device to connect to my Mac (that has no USB ports etc.). The added bonus was that they were on sale.

    It's an SD card ... the fastest one available

    For SD equipped DSLRs, this is the card to get if you find yourself hitting the limit of your buffer too often. Currently, it's the fastest SD card available for UHS-I cameras: virtually all Nikons made in the last three years, and a few Canons. I'd skip this card for a P&S, and go with something cheaper. Not that it won't work, it'll work very well, but they don't include the circuitry to feed this card data at its max speed - the standard Extreme work fine with those. Do be aware that if you really hit this card hard, it will heat up, so if you fill it in 30 minutes, don't be surprised when you pull it out to swap it.

    This review asked me what I use it with, and I picked my DSLR camera only because the option I really use it for wasn't listed. I actually save my DVD movies on it and I can put 15 to 20 movies on this small little card and then I can use it to play a movie in my computer or my tablet so I don't have to take up the memory of the device. (the tablet is a Toshiba Thrive,obviously not an Ipad -- one of the many faults iwth ipad, no externals allowed). The quality is stunning!

    Best write speed

    I'm a wedding photographer and I needed to purchase new cards for my Nikon D750. With my old cards it would take to long for camera to write the images and to read the images. A lot of the other cards would have a READ speed of 80mb -95mb but the WRITE speed would be way less like 30mb-60mb. My main issue with the old cards is that it would take 30- 50 minutes to drop a full 32GB card. Now with this card the WRITE SPEED is 90MB it takes me a max of 5-15 minutes to drop a full card. Pros: Read/Write Speed 95MB/90MB It comes with a recovery software Cons: N/A

    Bought this extreme pro 32gb from my local Military NEX. The 32gb is a class10 U3 card. Awesome and works like a champ with my canon DSLR, as i often use speed burst and long shutters. Download speed is superb, write speed is great, pretty much the same compared to the almost identical higher model sandisk SD card with class 10 and U1 specs. Very fast and performance is awesome! This beats out all the other regular SD cards. Get it now!!!

    I purchased this memory card especially for use with a Canon Digital T3i Camera. A class 10 card was unable to keep up with the camera when shooting rapid individual shots, and video just was not happening. With this card the camera performs as Canon designed it too. It takes everything that I throw at it, including video, and stills saved in raw plus large jpg format. When they go on sale again I will purchase another.

    I've always used SanDisk memory. This unit continues to impress me with its ample size and reliability. Be sure to format the card in whatever device you will be using it in...not on your computer. I use this in my Sony Alpha A6000 mirrorless camera. I haven't benchmarked it but it is able to keep up with the burst mode (11 frames per second) for quite a long time before it buffers out. I've toyed with the idea of using other brand-named cards but have stuck with SanDisk for its value and reliability. I won't trust my digital memories with anything else.

    I purchased this along with a Canon Power Shot. I wasn't sure what size card I needed, so I went ahead and bought the 32 gig one. When I got home, charged the battery, and fired up the camera, I was amazed that when set in the highest quality mode, I could store well over 5,000 images without running out of space. Had I known this, I would have just bought an 8 gig card. The card is fast enough that I can show continuous still shots less than a second apart. Would I recommend this to someone else? Of course, but I would suggest a smaller version.

    I bought this card when I found it on sale because of its high speed for reading and writing data, and I was not disappointed. I have a similar card that has a capacity of 64 GB and find that although it is rated for a similar speed, in reality it takes much longer to save photo data. Read speed and write speed are two different rates, and I am happy with the write speed of this card which affects the way I TAKE photos and is more important to me than the read speed which affects the time it takes to DOWNLOAD photos to my computer

    I use this card with my DSLR (Canon T5i) for wildlife photography. These extreme pro cards have the write speed you need to have quick response between shots. With the standard cards I had a lot of camera pauses, where it would freeze up between shots to write the picture info before continuing to allow me to take pictures. Now I can take dozens of photos when i hold the shutter button down without any pauses. This has allowed me to capture sports moments, birds in flight, animals running etc. I think it's the most important purchase outside of the camera itself.

    Excellent Data Speed

    I'm currently using this in a Nikon D3300 and purchased it specifically to address the high volume data flow needed for shooting photos in raw and high quality HD video. The memory card exceeded my expectation and does an excellent job of handling large file movement and data storage. I've had other memory cards in the past that say they can handle the work I do, but this memory card delivers. Also, since I'm constantly transferring files and adding new ones, I'm happy to report that there has been no slow down for the high volume I typically generate.
