Not as advertised!,
This review is from: SanDisk SDSDX-008G-X46 8GB Extreme 30MB/s Class 10 SDHC Memory Card (Packaging Varies) (Personal Computers)I was looking at ordering this card for my Nikon D60 to increase the number of photo's i could take and hopefully increase the rapid mode. I read all the reviews. Some saying they got the 30mb/s version and others saying they didn't. I decided to take the plunge and placed my order. It came this morning from TradeportUK and it isn't the 30mb/s version. It clearly says on the box 20mb/s.
It has obviously increased my picture capacity because my previous card was 4gb. However the cards are exactly the same speed. Im annoyed that Amazon can advertise the 30mb/s edition if they can't GUARANTEE that is what you are going to get from their external traders.

Just has the same experience from a market place trader. A 20Mbs card was supplied (without the box) but the invoice said 30Mbs - Amazon needs to change the description or update the photos on this product.

PhotoPlus mag issue 34 (published April 2010) tested this card among many others and found 16.9Mbps write and 18.8Mbps read speed. So, nowhere near the claimed 30Mbps...but still the fastest on test.

Very useful as were other reviews. Amazon needs to do something.

Had lots of problems with Amazon 3rd Party Traders selling used/opened goods and trying to pass them off as new.
Amazon doesn't seem to want to do anything about it so I no longer buy goods from the Amazon website unless they are being sold by Amazon themselves.

The card displayed now clearly states that it is the 20 mbs version.

I received a 30MB/s card. I noticed the frustration free packing version is 30MB/s weeas the normal packing version is 20MB/s.

I ended up receiving a 45MB/s card. I got lucky but I wouldn't want to buy a product if I knew the chances of me getting what I ordered are not 100%!

I understand your frustration as i placed my order for the 30mbps card and it arrived today and i must say i am very HAPPY as the card i received was a 45mbps version so is it a gamble when ordering ?????????????????

Thanks for this feedback. I didn't take a chance, bought it (30MBPS) from Argos instead. It's selling for 16.66 each, 30% cheaper than the RRP.
