It pains me to leave this review.
on November 9, 2011
Let me start by saying that I love Amazon and have purchased many Amazon Basic Products. I have had no issues with any of their other products, but this one is completely defective. I am a professional photographer and I read some of the other reviews of this product but decided to give it a shot regardless. I did not however use it on any of my paid shoots because the reviews made me a bit nervous.
The very first use of this card was with my Nikon D7000 and about 20 shots in I started noticing that about 1/3 of my images were blacked out. After making sure everything was fine with my camera and lens, I started shooting again and the camera displayed an error code for the card. This camera has never had an issue before or since I used this card. I was able to load the images taken on this card to my computer (shot in raw format) and the black bar was in nearly every image.
This card my be worth the gamble if you are shooting just for fun, but I would personally recommend purchasing cards from sandisk or lexar. Don't risk it!
Like I said before, I love Amazon, but I find it necessary to leave an honest review.
