SanDisk, Extreme Pro, 32GB
on 1 September 2015
Let me begin by saying that I have absolutely no professional connection with Sandisk or any company that retails their products: I have straightforwardly purchased a brand new Sandisk Extreme Pro memory card from Amazon, and this review is merely intended to relate - to any would-be purchaser - what I consider to be its good and bad points:
+First and foremost, a brilliantly reasonable asking price from Amazon - with frustration-free packaging meaning that I didn't do myself a mischief freeing the card from the usual cardboard and plastic prison!
+Another plus - Sandisk Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC memory cards are readily available in a wide variety of storage capacities, right up to 512GB, so you should have no trouble in finding one to suit
+These particular Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC memory cards boast a maximum READ Speed of up to 95MB/s, and a maximum WRITE Speed of up to 90MB/s. In practice, I'd say that's about what you get
+Their Class 10 and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) video ratings mean that these cards have the necessary performance to capture a variety of stills formats - as well as 4K Ultra HD, cinema quality 3D, and Full HD video (1080p)
+They also benefit from from what Sandisk calls an 'Advanced Wear Levelling and Error Correction Code Engine', which I understand means that these SDHC/SDXC cards have been designed with reliability and endurance as a foremost priority. So errors that might have occurred during data storage and retrieval are minimised - reducing 'dropouts' and 'stuttering', and so preserving the integrity of digital images/data
+SDHC/SDXC Extreme Pro memory cards are designed to be waterproof, shockproof, and X-ray proof. Additionally, these cards have an operating temperature range of -25 degrees Centigrade to +85 degrees Centigrade (storage range is -40 degrees Centigrade to +85 degrees Centigrade)
+These memory cards also incorporate a Write Protect Switch: sliding the switch downwards locks the card and prevents the user from accidentally erasing the recorded data. But if the worst should happen...
+Purchasers of these cards are entitled to a year's free subscription of RescuePRO Deluxe recovery software, which can be downloaded from Sandisk's website
+These Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC Cards are also backed by a limited lifetime warranty
- The generic plastic 'jewel case' protecting the card could be a bit less awkward and fiddly to open, although it's not only Sandisk that falls foul of this problem. Er- and that's about it!
I've owned a number of different Sandisk memory cards over the years and none of them have ever let me down. In my opinion, this Extreme Pro version is a fantastic product at a very tempting price. What more can I say...?
