Lexar Professional 2000x SDHC/SDXC UHS-II cards let you quickly capture and transfer high-quality photos and 1080p full-HD, 3D, and 4K video, with a read transfer speed up to 2000x (300MB/s). The cards leverage UHS-II technology (UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)) for high-speed performance. And with the included SD UHS-II card reader, you'll power through post-production with high-speed card-to-computer file transfer. This dramatically accelerates workflow from start to finish, so you can save time and get back to the business of photography. Cards include downloadable Image Rescue software to recover most photo and select video files, and come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Compare the following UHS-II cards measured in the included UHS-II reader (benchmarks using CrystalDiskMark v3.0.3, sequetial 1GB random data, results in MB/s)
Lexar Professional 2000x 300MB/s UHS-II 32GB: 296.5 read / 272.6 write
SanDisk Extreme Pro 280MB/s UHS-II 32GB: 274.5 read / 226.9 write
Toshiba Exceria Pro 260MB/s UHS-II 32GB: 260.5 read / 235.6 write
I also tested using other UHS-II readers (SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-II reader, Kingston MobileLite G4 and Lexar SR2) but the included reader provided the fastest speeds.
Benchmarks aside, what is its speed in actual use? Copying 4GB of RAW files (134 images) from the card to a SSD drive took about 16 seconds for ~250MB/s actual transfer rate. That is faster than mechanical hard drives can sustain.
If your camera only supports UHS-I (and doesn't have the necessary UHS-II pins) then this card won't be notably faster than using a fast UHS-I card like the SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s UHS-I card. To compare, both cards were tested using Nikon D5500 and D7200 cameras. These cameras are capable of high write speed but only support UHS-I. Both cards provided essentially the continuous shooting performance.
To measure performance in UHS-I mode, the two cards were benchmarked in the Lexar Dual Slot USB 3.0 UHS-I card reader (both cards are functioning in UHS-I mode):
Lexar Professional 2000x UHS-II 32GB: 94.6 read / 94.0 write
SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s UHS-I 64GB: 97.3 read / 93.2 write
Why would one choose this card?
1. Fast download speed.
2. If your camera supports UHS-II (Fuji XT-1, Samsung NX1, Olympus E-M5 II) and you want the fastest card.
I must note that I haven't compared it first-hand with other UHS-II cards, because they're all far more expensive and by all reviews I've seen these Lexars are superior in performance.
In a D500 this card makes a huge difference, given that the D500 can take advantage of UHS-II (at time of writing, August 2016, very few cameras can). Whereas your leading UHS-I cards will give you a buffer depth of maybe a few dozen photos, with the Lexar 2000x cards I'm struggling to recall ever over-running the buffer… you can get at least sixty or so shots (at 10/s) without issue, probably more. And even if you're not relying on such long bursts, it's still surprisingly beneficial that the card clears shorter bursts super quickly, ensuring you can switch into review mode and look at photos you just took immediately thereafter - no delays, no pauses, nada. This might sound trivial, but it's actually one of the big draws to this card for 'normal' use - I didn't fully appreciate this myself until I got used to this card and then went back to a SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s temporarily, and saw the stark difference in the responsiveness of the camera overall.
Even in older camera bodies (that support only UHS-I) this card is still a tad quicker than any leading UHS-I cards (and I have used all of them - Sony, SanDisk, Transcend, Lexar, etc). Most significantly, it's far more reliable - while the camera might still fill its buffer and slow down, the buffer will clear as fast as possible, without fail. Many thousands of photos in this configuration and I've never seen this card cause so much as a split-second delay (beyond the camera's intrinsic limitations). Even the venerable SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s cards, the best UHS-I cards you can get, don't achieve this level of reliability.
The only downside, such that it is, is the price. At time of writing the price is, and has long been, roughly USD$100 (for the 64 GiB model). That's a huge jump above even the upper echelon of UHS-I cards, like the Lexar 633xs and SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s'. I really want to get a whole bunch more of these cards myself - I only have a couple right now - but at that price… unfortunately, no.
A while back these cards were selling for USD$50, here on Amazon, which is when I bought them. At that price they're great value.
P.S. There were issues with *some* of these cards in D500s, which appears to have been a faulty batch (or batches), early on. I expect those faulty cards will have been flushed from distribution by the time of my writing, and have no concerns about that issue specifically in buying these cards now. In any case, if you encounter the issue Lexar will replace the cards, without charge. I haven't seen the issue myself, though, even though my cards were purchased before the D500 compatibility issue was identified (and addressed) by Lexar. Again, not all copies of the cards were affected, even before Lexar fixed the problem permanently.
P.P.S. Nikon released D500 firmware 1.02 to "fix" the Lexar 2000x issue (http://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.com/en/download/fw/191.html) - which is unnecessary given Lexar will replace any such faulty cards anyway. Furthermore, I warn *against* using that firmware, as its workaround is not good - it simply causes the camera to switch to UHS-I speeds if the error occurs, which, yes, will address the error and allow the camera to keep working, but will also completely neuter the card, performance-wise, and defeat the point of buying a pricey, high-performance card. Better to leave your D500 at the earlier firmware version, if you can, so you'll at least clearly know if you're hitting the issue, and can get the cards replaced.
I set the drive mode to 8 fps, shutter speed to 1/125, the image quality to RAW and saved to only 1 SD card. I then photographed a digital stopwatch for 25 seconds.
The 1000x card got 23 shots at 8 fps, after which it slowed down to about 1.5 fps. In 25 seconds, I got a total of 55 frames.
The 2000x card got 27 shots at 8 fps before slowing down to about 3.5 fps. In 25 seconds, I got 84 frames.
The buffer in the camera is what determines the maximum number of frames you can get, at the maximum frame rate. After that, the card speed will determine how long it will take before you can shoot another full burst at the max frame rate. In the X-T2, the 2000x is about 52.7% faster than the 1000x. It is up to you to determine if this is worth the extra cost.
RMA state 14 to 21 business days....LOL...I send them the card and they take 14 to 21 business days to send me another one. Awful. Why not send me one and charge me, then reverse the charge once they recieve damaged product. Never again, Lexar, never again!
