Prior to the purchase of this item ("Kingston 16 GB Class-10 SDHC card"), I have bought several other Kingston memory cards, including the Kingston 16 GB Class 4 SDHC and Kingston 8 GB Class 4 microSDHC Card. They were all reasonably priced, and performed up to specifications. So I never had a problem with Kingston - until this time.

I benchmarked the Kingston SD10G2 card upon its arrival. The result I got was so appalling that I have to re-run the tests on two different computers to confirmed it: This so-called 'Class-10' card is actually much slower than any of the 'class-4' SDHC card I have ever tested before!

- When writing small files of 1MB each, the speed of this card is painfully slow at just 0.8MB/s
- When writing larger files of 5MB each, the speed increased to 4.9MB/s
(see the screen capture I uploaded to Customer Images section for details)
- Only when writing a huge file of 1GB size, the speed finally reached 10.7MB/s.

In contrast, the Transcend 16GB TS16GSDHC10 (which is also classified as 'class-10') delivered 9.9MB/s when writing 1MB files, and 12.8MB/s for 5MB files. In fact, even my previous Kingston 16GB class-4 card gave much better results of 3.7 and 8.0MB/s, respective.

I bought this card to upgrade my Pentax k-x from the 4 GB class 4 SD card I received when I purchased it. I definitely needed more storage for shooting in RAW but I was also looking for a good speed increase for burst mode, and I was hoping this card could satisfy both of my needs at a modest price. The size is definitely there but the speed is very disappointing. Using multiple disk testers I've only been able to push out ~5 megabytes/second maximum write speed but the average remains much lower, only around 3 megabytes/second. Read speeds usually hover around 7 megabytes/second. The box claims the card is capable of up to a 20 MB/s read and 15 MB/s write but my data comes no where near those numbers and I have no idea how they arrived at them. After reading the terrible reviews of the Kingston 16 GB Class 10 Secure Digital Flash Card SD10/16GB I was hoping that this second generation would have fixed those problems, now I'm just hoping it doesn't corrupt my data.

Update: I hoped that I could still use this card on a day-to-day basis and overlook the speed issue, but the slowness of it is noticeable and a reminder that I'm not getting what I paid for. Sending it back for a refund and going to spend a bit more on a much better card.

Using Flash Memory Tool 2.01, I compared this class 10 card to a Kingston 8gb/class 6 and see the write speed on the class 10 is almost twice as slow as the class 6! Also compared it to a Transcend 16 class 10 and found it to be 3 times slower. I won't be purchasing any Kingston products from now on.

First time out with my new camera (Nikon D5100)at about 150 pictures I get a error message. Message said to replace card. All camera functions were frozen.
I inserted card in computer, it took several tries but it finally read card and was able to save pictures.
I purchased 2 cards.I would watch performance of card to determine if there is a problem with the operation of the cards in regards to card size and the relationship with the camera. I know the computer needs several attempts to read the card successfully.
Will return cards,can not take chance of losing pictures in the future.

I use this in my Canon T1i, and it can't keep up with even still shots. I lose 1 out of about 5, because they didn't get recorded to the card for whatever reason. I assume, because it can't write fast enough. In any case, I don't trust this card anymore. I have used an 8GB Class 6 for a year and a half, and it has worked much better. For video, it stops recording after just a minute or two, because it can't keep up, and that isn't even at the highest resolution (I record at 720p). If you're not shooting HD video, or raw + jpg photos, it might work for you. YMMV, but it doesn't meet my needs with my Canon EOS T1i DSLR.

Don't buy it, unless you really don't need a class 10 card. It's so slow you can't even use it for ReadyBoost on your PC, let alone use it for video or a fast camera. To label this a class 10 card is deceptive advertising.

Using Windows Command line winsat to run speed checks on this card I discovered a Read speed of 0.45MB/s and a Write speed of only 0.39MB/s. This is so far off the minimum required speeds for the class that there's no way this card can be legitimately called a class 10.

While I have always trusted Kingston products, my experience with their SD HC 16 GB (10)card leaves me disappointed and frustrated. I purchased three of these cards for a trip to China to use with both my Panasonic Lumix camera and a Kodak Zi8 pocket camcorder. On my trip, two of these cards became corrupted and unusable and all photos and movies were lost. Using a proprietary program, I was able to recover data from one of the cards but not the other. Furthermore, the 10 speed rating is unreliable. The video camera would turn off after less than 10 seconds of shooting most probably because the card couldn't keep up with the data input.

I'm not one to complain about product performance, but when two of three cards go bad and valuable memories are forever lost, how can one be satisfied? Replacing a defective card(s) does little to resolve the loss pictures from a trip.

Bottom line... if you want reliability, consider another manufacturer for your SD-HC card needs.
