It's fast and cheap, what more do you want?
on 5 July 2014
Speed is excellent, I am usually skeptical about manufacturer issued speeds because it isn't always the case in practice. However, I haven't benchmarked it but the Sandisk Extreme seems to live up to the spec, it's fast and you don't have to worry about stuttering or buffering if you're writing a huge amount of data, such as HD video recording.
I've used this card in a digital camera and a camcorder am pleased with the performance. Recording HD video at 50p for two hours showed no issues.
If you need more flexibility, you might prefer the micro SD version, which comes with an SD adapter, If for example you want to use the card in both SD and micro-SD devices.
Opting for the "frustration free packaging", I was expecting this little gem to turn up in my post box, protected by nothing more than a thin plastic bag. I was suprised to see the card incased in the reusable plastic case, which offers decent protection during storage or transportation without worrying about scratching the terminals. The case itself comes in a Sandisk card envelope, of which in turn is enclosed by an Amazon envelope.
