When I purchased my new Sony SLT-A77 camera from Amazon, they didn't have this memory card in stock, and I had to buy it locally. I always went for SanDisk Extreme series, but this Sony Class 10 SD Card was listed in the manual as the recommended memory alongside Sony MemoryStick HG series, and I gave it a shot. The built quality is as nice as SanDisk, but the speed is not sufficient for A77. Sony A77 pictures are huge, and each picture takes a few seconds to be written to the memory. As a matter of fact, even SanDisk Extreme has not sufficient speed for A77, and people have reported the best of success with the new SanDisk UHS-I series with this camera.

While Class 10 SD cards speed can go up to 20MB/sec, they are only approved for 10MB/sec sustained read and write speed. The new UHS-I cards, however, have 95Mb/sec transfer speed. If I want to do it all over again, I'll go directly to SanDisk UHS-I and recommend you to do the same: SanDisk Extreme Pro, SDHC, UHS-1 Flash Memory Card 619659070977. You will get much faster read and write speed, and the 12fps buffer will be written in 6-8 seconds; conversely, my memory takes about 20 seconds. This Sony Class 10 SD card is a nice memory card but is not enough for Sony A77 camera.

I've used this memory card on my Sony A55 for a couple of months now and it's been great. I shoot 10 pics in burst mode and it's ready for another burst almost instantly. Very satisfied.

UPDATE 8.10.12

I've now used this card to transfer files between my camera and PC's, MACS and even directly on to my Canon Pixma printer. It works connected to the camera or inserted into the card slot, flawlessly. Amazing speed and still hasn't missed a beat. I'd buy a second one but I already own the same card in the 16gb version, that has performed just as impressively as this one. Between the two I'm always ready to snap pictures or transfer any type of file at any time.

Also would like to mention that I've transferred large videos, pdf's, word files and other random stuff to different computers. And I've never had a problem. Still Very Satisfied.

I purchased this to use with my new Sony NEX-5 camera. This is the media card Sony recommends - not because it's made by them but rather a Class 10 SD card. It's very fast and with 32GB I can store more than 5,000 photos with my 14.2 megapixel camera.

I definitely recommend this product.

I bought this SD card for my new A65, and the only thing I have to compare it to is my old SD card (2 GB Sandisk Micro SD with adapter card). It allows for really fast writing & reading speeds - to the point that I notice it. While the specs for the camera only recommend a class 4 card, I decided to go with this one since it was what ritz camera (where I bought the camera) recommended - and its about $40-50 cheaper on Amazon.

I can store 2.5 hours of Full HD (30 fps) video, 3500 24 Megapixel pictures in .jpg, or somewhere around 2000 in RAW format... more than enough, which is why I went with this size.

With the older card (not 'classed'), it would take - without delay - about 12 photos in 24 Megapixel .jpg's - with this one, it'll do 17 (this is in the 10 shots per second mode). Read times from the card are significantly improved on my iMac with the built-in SD card reader - I suspect if it was a USB card reader it wouldn't improve as much, but I could be wrong. It takes about a minute to import 200 .jpg files (around 10 MB each).

I would buy this card again. Although it's a little pricer than some other class 10 32 GB cards, the performance is good, and using a Sony product in my Sony camera just makes sense. According to some reviews on cheaper cards, there can be some variation within some other brands... I didn't want to risk it.

For a secondary card, I'd consider a cheaper (and probably only a 16 GB) card - since its about half the cost to get a Transcend class 10 card.

I Have Extensively Used This 32GB SD (Class 10) Memory For College, & It Performs Extremely Well. However, It Does Not Function As A Dedicated ReadyBoost For My Laptop. Overall, I Have No Regrets Purchasing This Product As It Is Top Notch.

Not bad, but is not as fast as I expected, specially from SONY.
Still works fine with my Sony Nex 5N.

I use this card for my Go Pro.It has a slow start up where I have a wait a second or two before I can start shooting with it. Besides that it works great, I havn't had any problems with shooting in 1080 or 720 @60fps.

The top corner of the card cracked off inside my card reader. That corner must trigger something because the card no longer works (in any of the three card readers that I own). It has only been removed from the laptop a few times to transfer files to another computer and has never been left out so I assume that it had a flaw to begin with. I have had other sd cards for several years without any issues.
