Many reviewers of the Sony UHS SD card had opposite evaluations of its speed; some considered it as extremely fast, while others considered it even slower than old SD cards. And both camps are correct. If you put this card into a USB 2 card reader, its write speed will be between 8 and 10 Mb/s, which is slower than even that of some class 6 cards, like SanDisk extreme III. The same might be true for cameras not supporting UHS bus interface. However, if you put it into one of the new cameras supporting UHS, you will see by the speed of clearing buffer that it supports 45 MB/s write speed and is much faster than a non UHS class 10 card, like Transcend 10 class. The same might be true for USB 3 card readers supporting UHS. Therefore, your experience is defined not only by the card, but also by the device in which you compare this card with others.

Bought this to keep up with the write speeds on Sony's A77 camera which shoots at 12fps. No card can sustain the 12fps (after buffer is full) but this keeps going at about half that speed after the first second. Absolutely no problems shooting full HD video.

You need a better /faster camera. Not all cameras will support this cards new bus structure this card utilizes.

That is WHY many people rate this card low.

Improperly using this card in a camera NOT designed to use THIS Category CARD (UHS-1)!

Please note: "UHS-1 Memory Card (SF16UX/TQ)"

Plainly spelled out what you were buying. Your camera most likely does not support UHS-1..

So don't blame the card.

Before buying it wanting quicker refresh between shots make certain the camera can PROPERLY SUPPORT AND USE this card for what you want it to do. Otherwise the card will default to YOUR camera speeds.

Just my 2 little pennies worth. ;=)

I was a bit wary about purchasing this product because of the recent bad reviews on here. But when I received an email from amazon that the 32gb version (Sony 32GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 (SF32UX/TQ)) was on sale for $29.99 on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I couldn't pass it up. As I'm writing this review, the price is $33.90.

I have several class 10 SD cards and I even have the 16GB class 10 Sony Media SF16NX and neither compare to the burst rate I get this this one. I shot an indoor soccer game to test it out with my Nikon D600 with Noise reduction off and High ISO Noise Reduction set to low. I kept Advanced D-lighting on Auto. The lighting inside was pretty much even throughout and my camera metered at 1/200th shutter; f8; ISO 3200 (I didn't change these settings when I switched SD Cards). Also, I was't tracking any movement and shot handheld focused at the same spot.

Now, this may not be the best test to test these SD cards but I just wanted to test out how many shots I can get with continuous high burst. With Sony's regular Class 10 card, I was getting continuous-high burst rates of about 21-23 shots before the the buffer slows the burst shots down. With this newer Class 10 UHS-1, my burst rates were about 36-38 shots before the buffer slows it down. That's about a 60% increase in speed!!! In real life shooting, I never have to bursts for 36 exposures but its good to know that this card can handle it. Get it while its on sale and make sure you are purchasing it directly from Amazon and not another supplier.

Hope this helps.

I am currently using this SD card in my Sony Alpha a57 and it writes faster than the Sandisk 16GB 45 mb/s card that I have and the other two class 10 cards that I have. File transfer from the card to my computer is als very swift as is formatting it in camera. I have been pleased with he performance of this card so far.

I took a chance on this Sony 32GB SDHC UHS-1 card despite the lack of review. I was tempted by the "Supports up to 94MBs transfer speed" statement. I just received this card today and I can't believe how terrible the write speed is.. It is less than 9MB/s write speed (equivalent to 60X) As a comparison, I have an old Kingston 2GB 50X Elite Pro SD card from 5 years ago that write at 16MB/s and read at over 20MB/s. This Sony SHDC UHS-1 card's reading speed is amazingly fast at over 80MB/s, but write speed is much more important for my need, which I used in a SLR camera that shoots 30MB raw files at up to 5 shots per second. 25-30MB write speed would have been adequate, but a write speed of less than 9MB/s, slower than a 5-year old SD card is just unacceptable. Needlessly to say this card is being sent back to Amazon tomorrow.

It is confusing to see that some reviewers complain about slow speed while others seem absolutely satisfied. No. It is not because some people received defective products. I will show you why and how you also can get the best of this card with only a small investment in hardware.

My test system: Dell XPS Studio with i7-920 processor. The original system supports only USB 2.0. Test software: Crystal Disk Mark 3.0.2.

First test: the card reader that comes with the system. Result: 13.5MB/s Read, 9.9MB/s Write.
Second test: Transcend Information USB 3.0 Card Reader (TS-RDF5K) plugged into a USB 2.0 port. Result: 35MB/s Read, 29MB/s Write.
Third test: Transcend Information USB 3.0 Card Reader (TS-RDF5K) plugged into a USB 3.0 port on PCIExpress add-on board. Result 93MB/s Read, 44MB/s Write.

Now you see why reviewers were all over the places. But the bottom line is that this card is true to the advertised speed.
If you are experiencing speed slower than 20MB/s speed, it is mostly likely that your card reader does not support UHS-1. The $8.55 Transcend Information USB 3.0 Card Reader (B009D79VH4 will solve that problem. If your system does not have USB 3.0, the $8 USB 3.0 PCIExpress card (B008R535MU will increase the speed by 3x over USB 2.0. For less than $17 investment, you will be able to greatly improve the data transfer speed to a fast memory card as well as any USB 3.0-capable peripherals.
