SanDisk, Extreme Pro, 32GB
on 1 September 2015
Let me begin by saying that I have absolutely no professional connection with Sandisk or any company that retails their products: I have straightforwardly purchased a brand new Sandisk Extreme Pro memory card from Amazon, and this review is merely intended to relate - to any would-be purchaser - what I consider to be its good and bad points:
+First and foremost, a brilliantly reasonable asking price from Amazon - with frustration-free packaging meaning that I didn't do myself a mischief freeing the card from the usual cardboard and plastic prison!
+Sandisk Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC memory cards are available in a number of different storage capacities - right up to 512GB!
+These Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC memory cards boast a maximum READ Speed of up to 95MB/s, and a maximum WRITE Speed of up to 90MB/s. In practice, I'd say that's about what you get
+The Class 10 and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) video ratings mean that these cards have the necessary performance to capture a variety of stills formats - as well as 4K Ultra HD, cinema quality 3D, and Full HD video (1080p.)
+Sandisk's Advanced Wear Levelling and Error Correction Code engine means that these SDHC/SDXC cards have been designed so that reliability and endurance are a top priority. Errors that might have occurred during data storage and retrieval are minimised - reducing 'dropouts' and 'stuttering', and so preserving data integrity
+SDHC/SDXC Extreme Pro memory cards are designed to be waterproof, shockproof, and X-ray proof. Additionally, these cards have an operating temperature range of -25 degrees Centigrade to +85 degrees Centigrade (storage range is -40 degrees Centigrade to +85 degrees Centigrade)
+These memory cards incorporate a Write Protect Switch: sliding the switch downwards locks the card and prevents the user from accidentally erasing the recorded data. But if the worst should happen...
+Purchasers of these cards are entitled to a year's free subscription of RescuePRO Deluxe recovery software. All you need to do is visit LC-Tech.Com/RescuePRO, download the software (separate Windows and MAC versions are available), enter your details (and the relevant serial number, shown on the slip that's included in the packaging), and then copy/paste the Activation Code as soon as it's provided
+The SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC Cards are also backed by a limited lifetime warranty
- The generic plastic 'jewel case' protecting the card could be a bit less awkward and fiddly to open, although it's not only Sandisk that falls foul of this problem. Err- and that's about it!
I've owned a number of different Sandisk memory cards over the years and none of them have ever let me down. In my opinion, this Extreme Pro version is a fantastic product at a very tempting price. What more can I say...?
