You don't need to be a professional to utilize a Class 10 SDHC Card…

Designed for the enthusiast and pro photographer, the 32GB Professional Series SDHC card from HP is designed for high speed, high capacity, continuous mode shooting from your digital SLR and HD video recorder. These cards are perfect for capturing action or low light photos, allowing you to handle more frames per second for the critical shot. The Class 10, 133x speed rating and lifetime warranty translates to 20MB/s write speeds for ultimate performance and reliability.

What do 20MB/s write speed and Class 10 mean for me?

How does that speed rating affect me, and my photos or videos? Well, you don't have to be a professional photographer to utilize a Class 10 card, and the increased 20MB/s write speed can make a difference. Say you have a little one around the house and you're chasing after him with your camera snapping away. The card's 20MB/s transfer rate will allow you to take more photos in a shorter period of time, so whether you're in and around the house, or at the soccer game, the faster Class 10 card will enable you to capture more of those special moments.

What is Class 10 Speed Rating?

The SD Association has created and defined 4 speed classes to help you identify speed and guaranteed performance capabilities/minimum requirements of SD/SDHC cards and their host products. The ratings define flash memory cards that are capable of storing video. Higher class ratings such as Class 10 translate to higher quality video capture. In the case of PNY's Professional Class 10 card, they are guaranteed to record 1080p HD video which requires at least 10MB/s transfer rates. Speeds are reflected in megabytes per second (MB/s).

By NLee the Engineer HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on June 7, 2012
Size: 32 GBPackage Type: Frustration-Free Packaging Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this HP CG790A-AZ 32 GB Flash Memory Card Class 10 SDHC, mostly because it is budget-priced (similar class-10 32GB card from Sandisk would cost nearly twice as much). To my surprise, this HP card turns out to be faster than all my other class-10 cards.

I used a benchmark program called "H2testw v1.4" to find out the write speed for large (1GB) files. This is essentially the same as the sequential-write speed used for SD card speed ratings. To qualify as a class-10 card, the card must be able to sustain sequential-write speed of 10MB/s.

Here are the results for all my class-10 SDHC cards:
- HP CG790A : 15.1MB/s (* see update)
- Transcend TS16GSDHC10E : 14.6MB/s
- PNY P-SDHC16G10 : 13.6MB/s
- Kingston SD10G2/16GB: 10.7MB/s
- Wintec Filemate 3FMSD32GBC10-R: 10.2MB/s
(See the chart I uploaded to 'Customer Images')

For completeness sake, I also benchmarked this HP card using other programs, including "Flash Memory Toolkit v2.0" and "CrystalDiskMark 3.01". The results are even more impressive (see 'Customer Images' section for details).

I picked this up in a gold box deal at a great price. I wasn't sure how fast it would really be ("Class 10" is rather ambiguous, since it only means >=10MB/s write), but I'm very impressed. This card is fast and inexpensive.

Raw ATTO Benchmarks - Chunk sizes in kB - Write & Read speeds in kB/s


Equivalent max 'x' ratings (where 1 'x' = 150kB/s):
26816kB/s / 150 kB/s = 178x write
51523kB/s / 150 kB/s = 343x read

I had Kingston SD cards with my old Canon Powershot S3 IS. I bought a class 4 SD card for my new Canon EOS T3i but I was unable to record 1080p videos with that card. So I decided to by Class 10 SD card.

I found this card for a good price and bought it. I am very much satisfied by the throughput that I get with this card. I am able to record 1080p 30FPS videos with my T3i using this card.

I am very much happy that I bought this card. The packaging of this card was not as impressive as any other card, but thats fine as far as it have such a great throughput.

I've only had it for a few days, but so far, so good. The speeds are fine, haven't classified them yet.

As for the other review, the card does seem slightly thicker than other SD cards. There is some extra friction when putting it into my Canon 300 HS, but it does not get stuck.

SD cards seem to be getting better and faster with time and customer needs, which is good for all of us. We often make the mistake of buying SD cards for our digital cameras that are too slow, then wondering why the performance seems to lag when shooting fast sequential images, video files, or even more importantly to some of us, when we are trying to save RAW images as opposed to the standard JPG files.

This HP 8 GB Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory Card was a pleasant surprise, and though I might have initially overlooked any HP cards in favor of some of the more popular brands, this one turned out to be quite good... and at the time of purchase, an exceptional buy, and quite competitive. Check the specs and you'll see that these are actually made by PNY. SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards like this go up to 32 GB, and should be able to write to the camera at a sequential-write speed of 10MB/sec as per the standards. This one was ordered with the Amazon Frustration Free Packaging, and you still get the standard plastic SD card holder when ordered this way.

There are many benchmarks that one can use, and I ran the freeware H2testw 1.4 program on my Windows 7 notebook to test the card, along with Michel Machado's F3 program on the MacBook Pro. Note that these are both programs designed to not only test flash memory capacity, but to detect counterfeit USB drives. Running H2testw 1.4 on the PC resulted in a benchmark between 15.0MB/s and 15.1MB/s, which puts it right up there with the best of the SDHC cards.

But benchmarks mean very little if your camera cannot handle the SDHC card.
