Never Been Cheaper!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lexar Professional 64 GB Class 10 UHS-I 400x Speed (60 MB/s) SDXC Flash Memory Card (Electronics)
I have been watching the price of this Lexar Pro 64gb 400x for a while and it fluctuated about the £50 mark for quite a while. When it was £47 I bought one. Now, a week later, it's £3 less.
My point is that this is one hell of a good value card - for its size, speed and reputation, it must surely be unbeatable?
I partner now, a Sandisk Ultra 64gb 30mbs with this Lexar in the other slot of my twin SD slotted Nikon D7000 and I have the capacity to shoot over 1,500 RAW+ 'normal' jpegs in each, twice that for the two.
The Lexar came in posh, completely over-packaged packaging (over the size of a CD case, for a tiny card) but that does show that you are getting the real, authentic deal, here. The card is made in Korea and worked immediately - and perfectly - in the D7000. I have shot over 1000 images in a couple of days including long 30 second exposures, as well as short-fire bursts as part of my normal photography (I don't test cards for the sake of testing them) and at all times it inspired total confidence.
It's fairly common knowledge that Lexar cards veer toward the reading from the card in their speed and ratings and less so in the writing. This is not unusual, I would say that this is the norm, actually, with only Sandisks generally being 50/50. However, with this (average rated 45mbs equivalent) I would say that it's nearer 30mbs write and 60mbs read. I still use a couple of 133x 32gb Lexar Pro's and they've never slowed me down or my photography and video has been fine, too. This 64gb is rated as a video '10', as well and so I'm sure that it'll be brilliant for long video use.
Downloading in the PC slot is again, immediate recognition and then quick download. I don't time such things - not blazingly quickly but probably a bit faster than other cards I have. This aspect was not a priority for me - a decent make, a big capacity and reasonable speed for the lowest price definitely was though and at this new lower price, it has become irresistible to all users of quality DSLRs. Though you do have to make sure that YOUR model can support the SDXC system.
