What is Class 10 Speed Rating?

The SD Association has created and defined 4 speed classes to help you identify speed and guaranteed performance capabilities/minimum requirements of SD/SDHC cards and their host products. The ratings define flash memory cards that are capable of storing video. Higher class ratings such as Class 10 translate to higher quality video capture. In the case of PNY’s Professional Class 10 card, they are guaranteed to record 1080p HD video which requires at least 10MB/s transfer rates. Speeds are reflected in megabytes per second (MB/s).

Customer Questions & Answers

Therefore I consider this PNY card a better value at its present low cost.
NLee the Engineer
The card will suddenly give error message and not read, and when you try to read on the computer you get nothing but gibberish files.
Jayme182
It is compatable with my camera and I have no complaints about its speed when doing continuous shooting or taking HD Video.

This is one of the first Class 10 SD cards that is actually affordable and doesn't cost much more than Class 6 cards. At regular price it can be a bit expensive, but catch a sale and it's a great deal.

Performance wise the card is great. I have tried it on 3 separate devices, all of which take HD video. The first was a Panasonic Lumix point and shoot camera. Set to take 720p 30fps video, the recording start and stop times were noticeably faster than my previous Class 6 card. When I performed a Delete all content, this card cleared a bit quicker than before. I also used the card in a Canon T1i and there was no lag for shooting both 720p and full HD video. With a previous Class 6 card it worked well, but occasionally there would be a hiccup in recording, especially full HD. The last was a HD pocket camcorder and again, no issues as recording was smooth and starting and stopping was instant.

Download performance is also improved with this card. I would say data downloaded to my computer at the very least 25% faster than with a Class 6 card, which may not seem drastic, but when moving several GBs of data it makes a difference. I also uploaded data from my computer to the card and the same difference was evident.

Overall it is a great memory card. Is it worth updating from a Class 6 to Class 10? If you are using a point and shoot camera and do not take HD video, then probably not. If you are using a quality DSLR camera and/or shoot HD video frequently, the upgrade to Class 10 would be worth it. If you are getting a new camera and will be shooting HD, go for the Class 10. If you will not be shooting HD, a Class 6 will be ok but if you can get the Class 10 for close to the same price, go for the 10.

Overall I can highly recommend this Class 10 PNY SD card.

Product Packaging: Standard PackagingSize Name: 16GB Verified Purchase
I bought this card just to give PNY a try since Amazon lowered the price again. I also have the popular Transcend 16GB class 10 so I decided to do a quick test. I did read and write test with a full DVD ripped movie which is about 5.58GB and has combination of large and small files.
Test setup:
- Ripped full DVD 5.58GB
- Intel workstation, dual quadcore Cpus
- External USB card reader.
- Stop watch
- 64bit Windows 7 ultimate

My result

Writing test:
PNY............Transcend
14.2MB/s......17MB/s (Speed reported by windows)
7:00 mins.....5:45 mins (stopwatch)

Reading test:
PNY............Transcend
19MB/s........19.2MB/s (Speed reported by windows)
5:19 mins.....5:18:55 mins (stopwatch)

So far the Transcend beat the PNY in writing test.
I put both cards in my Canon 60D, both started slowing down after 20 frames, frame size is M-Raw. I also noticed the time to clear out the buffer is about the same for both.
Overall, both cards are fast enough for my Canon HD camcorder and Canon 60D video capture.
I bought this card for my Canon HD camcorder so the slow writing is not a problem to me and there is no reason to return for the Transcend.
I would recommend the Transcend if the PNY is more expensive.

Correction:
I had the read test result swapped. In reading, the PNY is bit faster but it's negligible.
Reading test:
PNY............Transcend
19.2MB/s.......19MB/s (Speed reported by windows)
5:18:55 mins...5:19 mins (stopwatch)

Update 5/27/2011
Some reviewers complained that the card doesn't work in FXP and MXP mode.

Product Packaging: Standard PackagingSize Name: 8GB
I purchased this product based on the review here. It is not the speed demon I thought it should be as a "class 10." Overall, I think this card is just as good as my Transcend 8GB class 6. I tested these 2 cards on my Canon T1i using continuous shooting in both RAW+jpeg, and Large Jpeg. I then timed how long it took these shots to write to the card before it "recovered" and readied for the next shots. These are the underwhelming results:

The 8GB size is recommended by Canon for my camera. Good enough for 254 of the largest RAW+Jpeg photos. Larger capacity should work fine also.

Transcend 8gb, Class 6:
RAW+Jpeg: 5-6 shots, 10-15 seconds recovery respectively
Large Jpeg: 33 shots, 10-11 seconds recovery

PNY 8gb, Class 10:
RAW+Jpeg: 5-6 shots, 14-20 seconds recovery respectively
Large Jpeg: 38-49 shots, 15-17 seconds recovery respectively

I am not in need of continuous shooting. After 4000 photos on my T1i, this test was only the 2nd time I used continuous shooting. I took 1 star away because of the disappointing speed tests. If I had a "to do over" I would purchase more of the cheaper 8gb class 6 cards or a cheap 16gb class 6. For a Class 10 card that functions as a Class 6 card, this PNY product is OVERPRICED.

I have owned this card for a month and a half now and this is a pretty good SDHC card. It writes/reads very fast. I use it with my Lumix FZ40 and it works just perfect I definitely recommend this card.

5/10/2012 Update:

I ordered a second card a while ago now. This time a 32GB card. Hasn't failed me yet, not even when I record video at 1080p, love these SD cards or when I shoot Continuous raw exposures with my Nikon (6 per second) :-)

9/9/13 Update:

When first bought this card I bought to use it in a Lumix FZ40 as you can read above, then I used it in my Nikon D7000. Since the D7000 has two SD slots I decided to give it another try and bought a 32GB.

I've never lost a single file. I'm able to record (writing of the file) full HD videos flawlessly (the reading of the file in full HD TVs, the 3" screen of the camera and computers is flawless as well). I can shoot in burst mode (16.2MP x 6 frames per second shooting in RAW) with my D7000 without having information lost or corrupted. Having the weight in my shoulder that from time to time I shoot weddings I can't afford to lose any file and these cards make the work greatly.

Have been using them for over 3 years, not a single issue. I'll be probably buying a few more by these days.
