Make Sure Your SD Memory Card Doesn't Slow You Down
Take advantage of higher class rated memory cards for faster capture performance with your digital camera. Whether you record video or shoot fast photos, get the most flexibility with a speedy Kingston SD High Capacity (SDHC) and Extended Capacity (SDXC) memory cards that fits your camera and shooting style. Never miss a moment with Kingston's reliable Class 10 SDHC/SDXC cards.
Kingston’s Class 10 UHS-I card features UHS-I technology and impressive performance that lets users shoot full 1080p HD video — and transfer files faster too.
With the larger capacities of SDXC you can record more video — up to 1,280 minutes at 12Mbps of HD video — without having to switch cards. Photographers can shoot high-density image files, such as RAW or JPEG, without running out of space.
1 Megabyte (MB) - 1,000,000 bytes; 1 Gigabyte (GB) = 1,000,000,000 bytes; 1 Megapixel (MP) = 1,000,000 pixels. Please note: Some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and this is not available for data storage.
To Find the Right SD Card, Consider Your:
- Camera - Do you own a compact point-and-shoot, DSLR, and/or camcorder?
- Captures - How do you use your camera? Stills, continuous action, high-speed shooting, and/or video?
- Card - How much storage do you need? Do you take a lot of photos? Do you take higher or lower resolution photos & videos? How long are your typical videos?
*Approximate number of JPEG (compressed file) pictures. JPEG file sizes vary based upon camera model, and internal file size and compression settings, as well as user-selected resolution and compression mode settings. Actual results may vary. In addition, JPEG compression will result in different file sizes based upon picture complexity. Some host devices may not support all of the Flash storage capacities listed. Consult your device's owner's manual for supported capacities. **Actual recording time will vary based upon camera model, selected resolution, compression settings and the content being recorded. Some host devices may not support all of the Flash storage capacities listed. Consult your device's owner's manual for supported capacities.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I decided to write a review here because many other reviews didn't mention a few critical pieces of information.
First and foremost, this card does support alternate file systems. Out of the box, if you don't have at least Windows XP SP1 (with update KB955704) on your PC, OSX 10.6.4 on your mac, and the "SDXC" logo on your camera or device, this card may not be recognized properly in its native exFAT filesystem, and your various computers and devices may not be able to format it in a way that is compatible with your other devices. If you format the card with NTFS, it will work on older Windows systems (and UNIX-based machines with ntfs-3G or FUSE-ntfs). If you format it with FAT32, however, it will work on almost every device I tested, even those which claim to support the SDHC (32GB max) standard. This is because there are basically no physical differences between older SDHC cards and these newer SDXC cards except for their capacity. Additionally, this means if you format the card with FAT32 on a compatible computer, you can use it in almost every camera, computer, or device that supports 4GB cards. That's right, when formatted to FAT32, I've tested it in a couple of devices that advertised a maximum capacity support of only 4GB, and it still played well with all the other old devices too!
Compatibility aside, the speed of the card deserves note. All cards are internally printed on different wafers of NAND (that's the actual flash memory inside these chips), so results may differ slightly especially in terms of small cluster random writes, but with my system and reader I have benchmarked sustained write performance of 16.4MB/sec and sustained read performance of 42.6MB/sec. If the "class" system were to be expanded, this card would therefore be closer to a "Class 16 card" in write performance and/or over a "Class 42 card" in read performance. I tested this on the built-in card reader in my 2011 Dell laptop, so if anything, these figures are conservative and you may experience higher transfer speeds on a dedicated USB 3 SDXC reader.
I've used many Kingston products over the years, and most if not all have been virtually problem-free. This card lives up to the trend. (Yes, I've used a lot of SD cards!) For better or for worse, this means I cannot comment on the warranty, since I've never once had to use it.
The only reason for deducting one star is lack of UHS-1 controller support at this capacity and price, so it does not explicitly take advantage of the faster 104MB/sec bus speed or 1.8V low-power operation mode. It is not consistently the cheapest card in this capacity, nor is it the fastest or "lowest power" to use (yes, this may become important when your whole device operates in the mW range). For most, the distinction is next to nil, but I found it worth mentioning regardless. In sum, although it strikes an excellent balance, it is still a tiny bit lacking in other technical regards.
A followup: I was initially frustrated, but Kingston's lifetime warranty was honored very professionally by the Kingston company. I mailed them back my card and they sent a new one that has worked perfectly thus far. Therefore I am raising my rating to 3 stars. If it works for an extended length of time, I will raise it again because of the excellent customer service.
Then, I figured I could use this in the SD slot of my laptop. It's nice to have an extra "harddrive" without having a cable or USB stick sticking out. So, I plugged it in and copied some of my important files to it.
I tried to transfer 5,584,041,865 bytes in 2,094 files and 66 folders to it. It was copying well until it was about halfway done. I kept getting a Win7 error about the semaphore timing out. Eventually, I had to abort the copy, basically telling it to "Skip" all occurences of the same error.
I did some sleuthing about the "semaphore" error. It seemed that the two things contributing to this error were (1) problems with the network, and (2) not using NTFS. I don't understand how transferring files from one drive on my computer to another drive on my computer could involve the network. So, I decided to reformat the SD card, which apparently arrived exFAT to NTFS.
I was then able to copy those 5g of files to the drive. It took a long time and I didn't time it. But, when I went to work with some of the files on the disk using apps, they were REALLY slow. Unacceptably slow. Maybe this SD card, not useful for the camera and not useful as a working drive, could function just as a long term emergency backup.
Then, I set up some tests to do more copies to the SD card. First, I deactivated the network entirely on my laptop - power off to everything. Then, I put the SD card into my USB adapter. I tried as tests two copies. The first copy was about 771MB and was the ISO image of an operating system install disk. Then, I copied over 2.1g of Adobe Acrobat X install files. These tranferred over fine. They seemed to take a long time, but I timed it and they were both around 8-9MB/s.
Then, I put the SD card in the SD slot. The ISO image copied over in just about the same time, so it was just about the same rate. The Adobe copy didn't work. It reported the second file name and indicated it was calculating the time - and that's all it did. I left for lunch and came back and it was still in the same place. I went to do some things on my phone and gave it more time, and it was the same. I clicked the box to cancel and that hung. I didn't stop it until I did a Force Shut Down.
The SD card slot in my laptop is connected into Device Manager different than the USB bus. I hardly ever use the SD slot; maybe that's really the culprit here, but I can't tell.
So, I cannot find a use for this SD card. I tried three uses and it cannot reliably perform any of them. I destroyed the packaging when I opened it so I can't send it back. I can't verify that I can delete my personal data from the card, so it will likely be a one time safety backup of those 5g. I could have done that with DVD-R.
I'm a photographer and videographer and have been using SD cards like PNY, Sandisk, Sony, Toshiba, in lots of different cameras. My go tos are Canon's T2i, T3i, 70D and the 6D, which are used on a weekly basis for work.
I've had just about every type of card go corrupt on me - expect my 64GB and 128GB Kingston cards. They're fast, no hassle and always get the job done. In fact, I actually had to let a buddy use one while filming because his card failed him in the middle of a shoot!
My 128GB card however split open at the top corner and the lock mechanism fell off. I called customer service and they answered immediately and took care of me. They really do stand behind their product! I doubt I'll ever buy any other kind of card ever again. Kingston SD cards for life. I gave it a 4 star because I've never had an SD card split open on me before, so that was new. However even like that, it kept working, I just couldn't add more data to it, because it was set to "locked."
