Sandisk Extreme, Secure Digital High Capacity, Class 10 (UHS-I) Memory Card
This memory card was purchased for my Panasonic Lumix 12 megapixel digicam. Back then it was one of the high end digital cameras offered by Panasonic and cost nearly £300. I wanted to purchase a top notch memory card to capture those special moments. The Sandisk Extreme, Secure Digital High Capacity memory card fit the bill.
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.
You may come across UHS (Ultra High Speed) symbol and this also indicates the minimum sustained writing speed. UHS is the fastest performance available on the market today. Currently, there are two types of UHS classifications: UHS-I Cards, write speed of 10MB/s and UHS-II write speed of 30MB/s. It is worth mentioning that UHS Speed Class is designed for UHS devices only.
SanDisk is one of the world's leading producers of data storage products based on flash memory. The preferred choice by professional photographers around the world for high performance, reliability, and proven durability. To avoid any potential problems with data corruption, I highly recommend you purchase a card manufactured by any of the major memory card brands.
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.
