Lexas has always been a standard for professional digital photographers. Having bought other "Cheaper" SD memory chips, I have learned first hand how slow a digital camera's response when taking Hi Res photos using standard or less expensive chips. I have been impressed and prefer this particular SD chip in comparison to Extreme II or standard ScanDisk SD chips. The 133x in this Lexar chip really does help to shorten the transfer time from camera to memory storage. One or two shots may not be noticable but when shooting several shots in a fast sequence, you will clearly notice a clear advantage of this product.

I bought a new Nikon D90 and the Lexar Pro 8GB SDHC card to go with it. The card worked great for 2 months until the plastic broke up around the contacts. I contacted Lexar tech support and, after a few e-mails and some photos of the damage, they agreed to replace it. I shipped in the broken card and received the replacement within a week or two.

The replacement, however, didn't work in my camera. After a few conversations with Nikon and Lexar, I learned the 8GB card is not listed on the Nikon compatibility list for my camera. The 4GB was listed but, not the 8GB. Lexar offered some formatting suggestions to try to get the card to work with my camera. Unfortunately nothing worked.

Oh well. I can use the Lexar card in my Fuji Finepix camera and I'll go out and buy a new card off the Nikon D90 compatibility list.

[...]

By the way, the only difference I can tell between the first broken 8GB card and the second 8GB replacement card is that the first was made in China and the second in Taiwan. The second card seems noticeably more rigid and sturdy. Unfortunately, you can't tell the which location the card was built in until you open the package and look at the back of the card.

For those that take photos using a digital camera, invest the few extra dollars in a proffessional card like this one. Using my Nikon D80 I immediately noticed the improved speed of performance in capturing the high resolution pictures I was taking. For the 20,000+ pictures I taken this year, this card has been rock solid for over 9 months so far.

I have several brands of 8 GB cards for my Nikon d80 - this one, a Sandisk Extreme III and the Transcend sold here at Amazon. Of the three, this one is the fastest. If you shoot continuous frequently, you're going to want this one on hand, as it has the shortest lag time I've seen. Reviewing shots is instantaneous, and download to your computer is lightning fast.

I shoot quite a lot, and in my experience before buying the Lexar, you get a shot that just won't read properly off of the card every 1000 shots or so on average. Not so with the Lexar, been using it about 7 months, probably 8000+ shots and no errors whatsoever.

You're going to pay a premium for this one, but it pays off in reliability and speed. My other cards have been on backup duty (and are very bored).

I've had this for over 6 months. While the memory works fine and has been fast enough for my camera, the little write protect tab recently fell off making it unusable. To me that should not happen for what I paid for this.

I was able to get ahold of support easily and get an RMA which would require me to send it back first before I receive what is probably a refurbished card. Fortunately after some time I found the little tab in my carpet. It did snap back in but I am now very leary of it falling out again.

I have never had a any memory card fail like this. I don't find Lexar any more reliable than any of the less expenive cards I have purchased.

Initially I didn't have any problem with my 4GB Sandisk Ultra II SD cards. But on the same weekend, I had 2 fail on me which prompted me to switch completely to Lexar. I've used Lexar Pro CF cards professionally with absolutely no issues. So I figured I'd test out the Lexar Pro SD cards as well. They've been going strong for almost 2 months now with no issues. Only time will tell, but if this experience matches my other experiences with Lexar (over 6 years now), I only have the highest of expectations regarding reliability and speed. 2 thumbs up from a pro photog!

I bought eight Lexar "Professional" (muahaha) cards. After not even one year, I only have four working ones left and that's only because I started babying the remaining four.

The electronics work fine, but Lexar decided that it can cut corners by making the shell of the card out of the thinnest plastic possible. The pattern is the same every single time: a crack appears at the top left corner (where the contacts are), grows to the opposite short side of the card and then the entire shell splits open.

If you're lucky this happens before you put the card in the camera; if you're not lucky (like me) it happens after you filled the card. Thank goodness my D7000 has dual slots and I had at least the JPG's on the other card available. But I was not a happy camper.

On top of it, these cards are S-L-O-W. The Sandisk Extreme Pro writes at a rate almost twice as fast. More importantly, when the buffer on my camera is full, the Sandisk clears it in about one second. The Lexar on the other hand takes 5 to 10s.

I knew the Lexar was bad lifetime wise. But once I started measuring the speed i was truly shocked. This is NOT a good card to have. Avoid!
