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 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.
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.
