I decided to take a chance with this Ultra II card, even though my new Canon EOS Rebel T1i explicitly requires a 'Class-6' card for video capture. I'm happy to report that the card is fast enough to keep up with my camera, even in burst mode and in 1080 HD video mode.
My own benchmark (see 'Customer Images') revealed that the read speed of this card is consistently fast at 18-19MB/s. But its write speed is strongly dependent on the data file size:
- For small files of 1MB each, the card is only able to write at about 6MB/s. That means it qualifies as a borderline 'class-6'.
- For typical photo files (4-6MB each), the write speed is much faster at around 10MB/s.
- When writing a huge file of 1GB, the card can actually achieve the claimed maximum speed of 15MB/s.
The SanDisk Ultra II may not be a good choice if you want to use it as a ReadyBoost device (frequent writing of smaller file).Read more ›
The Cards work fine but they are not real sandisk cards. They are fakes. I have not had the cards long enough to see if there is any difference between the real cards I already have or the fakes I received, but I will soon find out.
So far for the price I paid i'm happy, but am unhappy that this company/retailer is selling bootleg fake products and amazon is allowing them to do so.
You can tell the difference between real cards and fakes by the type of plastic used on the back of the card. On the real cards the plastic backing is slightly translucent. The fakes have a solid black plastic backing that is not translucent.
Tested in the same camera, this Sandisk card qualitatively feels much faster than the higher rated OCZ OCZSDHC6 Class 6.
Sandisk is known both for making reliable SD cards, and for under-rating the performance of their cards (ie, they describe their "class 4" card as 15MB/sec? Class 4 only requires 4MB/sec). This makes Sandisk premium pricing well worth the extra cost, since their class-4 cards are inevitably better than the competition's. But the mismatched speed number and rating is a bit confusing at first glance (or for those lacking familiarity with SD cards).
True to Sandisk reputation, the card is way faster than the Class-4 rating. I tested it using a Transcend USB2 SD card reader (plugged directly into a PC USB port to eliminate the slowdown of an intermediate hub). This card wrote continuously at about 12.5MB/sec (or 12-12.5 MiB/sec), with performance varying only slightly between large 512K writes and smaller 32K blocks. I didn't test read speeds, but with these write numbers (writing is always slower), the card should easily meet the 15MB/sec number.

We have managed to fit about 5500 pictures on this card with great quality. I keep the originals on these cards, because it is hard to beat the storage.Published on November 19, 2013 by glidingwithgod
Does what you need it to do hold your files, just moves the files a bit faster. It's worth the price.Published on October 6, 2013 by PacmanSDR
