Designed for Durability‡
SanDisk designed its microSDHC/microSDXC memory cards to withstand harsh operating conditions. The cards are waterproof and tested to withstand up to 72 hours in salt or fresh water to a depth of 1 meter. They are also vibration proof and can withstand up to 500Gs of shock. Additionally, the cards are magnet proof and X-ray proof, so they won't be affected by an airport's X-ray machine. The cards are also designed to perform from -25 to 85 degrees Celsius, so whether you're in the desert or the Arctic tundra, you'll get the shots you want.
The SanDisk Ultra microSDHC/microSDXC UHS-I Memory Card works with any device that has a microSD card slot. Not all devices support microSDHC/microSDXC cards. Check with your device manufacturer for details. The card measures 0.43 by 0.59 by 0.31 inches (H x W x D). The adapter measures 1.41 by 1.67 by 0.14 inches (H x W x D).
How much can you store?
Choosing the right capacity very much depends on the type of file you want to store. Full HD2 videos, for instance, take up much more room than a simple snapshot. Music files vary in size depending on the format they're saved in. To help you make the right selection, this matrix uses typical file sizes to illustrate how much each capacity is likely to store.
11GB=1,000,000,000 bytes. Actual user storage less.
2Compatible device required. Full HD (1920x1080) video support may vary based on host device, file size, resolution, compression, bit rate, content and other factors.
*Ordinary cards up to 5MB/s write speed. 1MB=1,000,000 bytes.
**Up to 30MB/s read speed. Write speed lower. Based on internal testing; performance may be lower depending on host device. 1 megabyte (MB) = 1 million bytes.
^Approximations: results will vary based on file size, resolution, compression, bit rate, content, host device, pre-loaded files and other factors.

Some background info that you may find helpful. For any given memory device, there are two speed specifications that are provided by the manufacturer and these are namely, the read and write speed. The faster the read speed the more rapid is the rate of data transfer to your computer.
The higher the write speed the faster the images are saved onto the memory card. A Class 2 speed translates to write speeds of 2MB per sec. This is the sustained writing speed as opposed to the maximum instantaneous write speed. So the number shown on the memory card is the sustained write speed. Therefore a class 10 card will achieve 10MB/sec.
I've used other brand 'high speed' (class 10) cards in the past and I found that during the shooting process, on occasions you can experience dropout or jitter. I have not experienced any such problems with the Sandisk extreme cards.
There are plenty of cards out there that will do the job if you are just shooting standard photos or even capturing standard or HD quality videos. It is worth noting that image quality is unaffected by the type of memory card used. However using a low speed (say class 2) will process the information more slowly. It may also be less reliable and may corrupt you data more readily when used in high demanding applications.
I purchased this item at full price. If the product is unworthy of a good review, I think it is unfair to leave positive feedback as this can mislead potential buyers. I hope you found the review helpful. Please click on the “Yes” button below.
Reading reviews of other SD cards, I note a few people mention trying a different brand after problems with SanDisk. Maybe they turn out a duff batch from time to time???
They were all run using the same SanDisk SD adaptor on a Toshiba S70N-10B 4700HQ, 16GB, Windows 8.1 laptop that has a built in SD card reader. The cards are not factory fresh and are all in regular use in tablets, phones, sat navs and cameras.
PACKAGING & CONTENTS.
Official SanDisk MicroSD card packaging largely hasn't changed for a long time. The cards are supplied in a card backed blister pack that are opened by simply folding the cardboard in half, allowing the plastic section bearing the contents to be easily removed. One thing that has changed is that they have recently added a plastic film seal on the back of the plastic, given that the contents were already secure this is perhaps an unnecessary inclusion.
The SanDisk MicroSD card range is available both with and without an SD adaptor, do not make the assumption that those with an adaptor are more expensive as more often than not you can actually find them available cheaper... so much so I can't recall the last time I bought a card without an adaptor.
With the Ultra range of MicroSD cards the only other contacts within the package (other than an SD adaptor if you bought a card with one) will be a warranty leaflet (the standard SanDisk Ultra MicroSD cards come with a 10 year warranty, something I will discuss in depth further in my review).
The Extreme range again has the same warranty leaflet (although the Extreme cards have a 30 year warranty) and there is also a separate leaflet with a CD Key for a 1 year subscription to Rescue Pro Deluxe (file recovery software). If you have ordered an Extreme card in the standard SanDisk packaging take care when opening the blister pack as this latter leaflet is very easily to damage / tear when doing so.
Unlike SanDisk official packaging Amazon frustration free packaging has changed over time. My most recent purchases (July 2016) of Ultra and Extreme cards in frustration free packaging have been sent in large (C5 ish) white cardboard envelopes with a tearaway tab to gain entry. Inside the leaflet(s) are loose and the memory card and adaptor are held in placed in the same plastic container found on the official packaging with a film backing.
In truth, both forms of packaging require the same effort to gain entry and the only real difference is if you order an Extreme card in frustration free you are guaranteed not to tear the CD Key leaflet while gaining entry.
Firstly, I should state that over the last 7 years I have purchased some 30+ SanDisk MicroSD cards for friends, Family and myself and thus far there has been no complaints of missing files, corruption or failure during this time.
On the actual warranty leaflet supplied with Ultra and Extreme MicroSD card it actually states that the ultra has a "10 year warranty in Germany and regions not recognising a lifetime limited warranty" and the Extreme states "30 year warranty in Germany and regions not recognising a lifetime limited warranty".
As far as I am aware the term Lifetime Warranty stands true in the UK, it however does not mean what you might expect it to. It does not mean for the life of the owner and nor does it mean forever, what it actually means is the life of the product, which in its self is slightly ambiguous.
The truth of the matter is the life of the product is determined entirely by the manufacturer. Once the product is "end of line" or "discontinued" the product has reached the end of its life. An example would be if you own some VHS tapes or cassette tapes with a lifetime warranty those would now be considered end of life or discontinued (yes, I know there are perhaps some still being made somewhere, this is just an example) and thus the warranty is technically no longer valid. (I'm not saying the warranty will end the day production ceases, I'm just trying to explain the warranty length is not entirely clear cut).
Given that specific lengths are stated (10 years for the Ultra and 30 years for the Extreme) one would assume that at the very least the periods stated would be honoured as a minimum. Given the long warranty periods offered for both cards is one of the prime (non pun intended) reasons I chose to buy such products from Amazon as unless you are a black belt document filing guru its always nice to know recipts are quickly and easily obtainable.
There is one final point to make regarding the SanDisk Ultra / Extreme MicroSD card warranty and this is something that might perhaps surprise a few, it did me when I found out. If you use your Ultra / Extreme MicroSD card as a boot drive such as in a Rasperry Pi you are in fact invalidating the warranty of your card.
As previously noted I have never had a SanDisk card fail, however when doing some research for a friend who wanted to buy a Pi for his nephew, I came across a few forum posts of the Rasperry Pi site claiming that SanDisk were refusing RMA requests for cards that had been used as boot drives on the Pi. Evidence was posted to back this up and SanDisk claimed that using the drive in such a manner came under the "excessive use" clause in their T&C.
While you are perfectly fine using the cards with phones, tablets, cameras, sat navs etc, etc if you are looking for a card to use as a boot drive it might be worth checking the terms and conditional of alternative cards. This is not an endorsement, but as far as I am aware the official Pi NOOB cards are Samsung MicroSD cards (at least they were when I bought one in 2015).
HOW TO TEST FOR A GENUINE SANDISK PRODUCT.
Cloned cards have always and always will be a problem. Clones of cheaper cards are usually very easy to spot, it's simply not worth their while to spend the money to make it look exactly like the real thing. More expensive cards like the 64GB Extremes however a good quality clone would can be almost indistinguishable to the eye. Thankfully, there are some tools to help you confirm the authenticity of your purchase.
It is always worth checking your cards as soon as you receive them regardless of the source they were obtained from, yes even if it was from Amazon. The fact is clones can enter the supply chain at any point either intentionally or unintentionally.
To test the card on an Android mobile device an App called "SD Insight" can be used that will show the manufacturer details of the card. (Clones are usually cheaper cards that have been rebranded and this will show them up).
On a PC the cards can be tested using a program called H2testw (it can also test USB drives as well). H2testw is actually a little more useful as this will also detect if the card has been hacked to make it look like it has a larger capacity than it actually has.
Another test that can be used is CrystalDiskMark to speed test the card to make sure it is capable of the speeds the drive is supposed to. (Actual speeds can vary depending on the machine the test is being run on, do not be concerned unless the speeds vary significantly from what they should be as the variables to factor in during speed testing are many in number).
WHICH CARD IS BEST FOR ME?, THE ULTRA OR EXTREME?
This section really deserves some sort of fancy flow chart, but the fact of the matter is the difference between the Ultras and the Extremes (beyond the longer warranty) is simply a matter of speed... but there is slightly more to it than that.
Cameras - The Ultras are more than capable of handling a 1080p camera @ 30fps. Sadly, I cannot comment regarding 1080p @60 FPS, but for a 4k camera you should buy an Extreme or Extreme PLUS.
Movies - The Ultras can handle uncompressed full sized DVD.MKV's files on tablets and phones (transfer rate is only about 10-12 Mbps). For Blue-ray files (that are uncompressed) the transfer rate recommended (according to the official Blue-ray site) is 72MBps, as such an Extreme card is perhaps required. That said, it is possible to compress such files using a program like Handbrake and you might get away with an Ultra card.
Tablets / Phones - Obviously the previous two comments also apply when it comes to mobile devices, but there are additional notes to consider when buying a card for a mobile device. The Ultra cards in their 16GB / 32GB formats are perfectly viable cards for entry level and mid range phones. They can handle music, movies, photos (even very large DSLR photos) with ease. For the more modern flagship phones capable of 4k filming an Extreme would be a more suitable companion (or even an Extreme Pro).
If you also use your MicroSD card as partial storage for Apps on older versions of Android or even full blown installations on the more recent versions then this is another situation where the Extreme will make a difference. (Although it should be noted that neither the Ultra or Extreme will offer the same speeds as built in storage on your device).
The last thing to consider is simply that of data transfer speeds. While the 16GB and 32GB Ultras are excellent cards if you do any form of data transfer or backup on a regular basis you might want to consider the Extreme cards.
While the product was chosen on the basis of the manufacturer, that is seen as a specialist in the industry, and testament to quality too. I was surprised when the device had issues when I tried copying files over to it.
Primarily it was used for my tablet, but after filling to capacity and attempting to delete contents on the android device. I found issues when trying to copy additional files to it.I kept getting a device is dirty error.
Formatting was impossible even on another device and it turns out the device was faulty after some reviews. I had to a approach SanDisk directly and arrange an rma to get it replaced. It has a 10 year warranty, but it's a little frustrating especially given the time to go through the process.
Would not of expected something like to have occurred especially when the amount of writing to this device a handful of times neither.
