Card broke after less than a year, took 2 months to get replacement, and replacement came broken
on March 13, 2013
This is a great size for an SD card. I spent several hundred dollars last April to pick up one of these cards. I'm completely happy with the speed and the performance, but for a "professional" card it didn't stand the test of time.
The plastic and glue on my card crumbled in about 10 months. The front of the card broke off during a shoot and I was lucky to get the footage off of it. Luckily Lexar has a lifetime warranty so I contacted them in January. It took several weeks to get an RMA issued and then I sent the card off. About two weeks later I received a replacement card in the mail. I think it's refurbished, but it's mostly just broken. The lever that "locks" the data on the SD card is broken and the card will not unlock. And now it's mid-March and I'm guessing it will at least be April until my super large card is back.
I'm sure they'll fix this, but this just isn't how this stuff should hold up and you shouldn't be sending out broken "refurbished" gear to replace broken gear. Even if I ultimately get a working card what is my guarantee that it's going to last or keep my data safe? If I'm working a professional shoot I need to know that my cards are going to work and safeguard my data. It sure seems like these Lexar cards are junk.
