I took a risk considering there wasn't any reviews yet on this model from Amazon, but I went with my gut feeling and it's truly a great product. 128GB still blows my mind since it's compacted into this tiny card, but the writing and reading speeds are just as advertised if not faster at specific moments. I was also considering the San Disk Extreme 128GB SD model but I already have an older 8GB model that I had to re-format for no reason so I didn't want to risk it again. (Thank god that's just my DSLR SD Card, which all the pictures were in Lightroom already.)
I'm got this card to use with my MacBook Pro, and will be keeping the card in the SD slot at all times. I needed extra space on my computer for the Native Instruments Komplete 8 suite (75-80gb) because I had the data written on my internal drive but it was constantly taking up too much space. I didn't want to always carry around an external hard drive since I like to produce in the living room, my bed, and even friend's houses sometimes. So this card was perfect since it allowed me to save all the data to read from yet act like it's an internal SATA drive since it barely sticks out of the MacBook Pro. The read speeds are incredible, I noticed a big improvement since I USED to have the data on the 7200rpm internal SATA, and loading samples in Kontact and Massive are noticeably faster. I've only had it for 3 days at this point, but it's definitely and impressive SD Card and I give props to Patriot for it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a similar situation or anyone who really takes a lot of video on a DSLR.
