UPDATE: May 13, 2010
I was contacted by an Amazon shopper named Rolla Gravett. He purchased a Transcend class 6 card that could maintain the 4.5fps to 100 shots. It could be a fluke but in the interest of relaying the facts, I'm letting you know that he offered video as evidence of this feat. Neither my Transcend class 6 card or class 10 card will do this.

Please let me know if anyone else has had this observation.

Repost 10-28-09

To respond to a request, I've changed the video today and included the test shooting in Raw mode. As you can see I'm not getting the 4.5FPS that I got in fine mode. This was about the same time that I shot 100 images in fine mode. Thank you for your suggestion. I got 56 images in just under 24 seconds. On my Transcendclass 6 card I got 25 shots in the same mode/time. My Transcend Class 10 card captured 37 images. In my opinion this is a much better demonstration of the card's write speed.

I have an Nikon D90. I purchased the 8G San Disc Extreme III card 30MB/S and a Transcend 16G class 6 card at the same time. The San Disc Extreme 3 card is incredibly fast. I get 100 pictures (4.5 frames per second) at fine resolution before the camera slows to buffer in 24 seconds. The Transcend card gets 17 photos on the same settings then pauses to buffer and only delivers 25 shots in 24 seconds. The Transcend Class 10 card delivers 66 shots in 24 seconds.

If you have the camera that can take full advantage of this write speed, this fast card is worth the investment. No more cringing while I wait for my camera to clear its buffer so I can take more pictures.

I like to shoot at 4.5 frames.

Some time ago I purchased a Transcend 16 GB Class 10 card and reviewed it as "Fast, Fast, Fast". Later reviewers pointed to the printed speed on the actual cards (and on the corporate web pages) (Transcend - 20 MB/sec, Sandisk Extreme - 30 MB/sec) as an indication that the Transcend card was not particularly fast. Since the term "speed" itself is pretty much a subjective description, and since the speed of the card also depends upon the speed of the camera hardware and software, I thought it might be worth speed timing the different cards in my camera (a Canon T1i).

My original card, before I bought the Transcend 16 GB Class 10, was a Transcend 8 GB Class 6 (actually a micro-sdhc card) and my review of the Transcend Class 10 card was based on comparison with that card. I bought the Sandisk Extreme card (8 GB since it was pretty expensive) and tested each.

The actual timing tests were simple enough. I formatted each card before each test. I then took 20 continuous photos at 8 MP, at 15 MP and at RAW, and recorded the time from the start of taking pictures to the time when the recording light turned off.

Timing:

1) Transcend 8 GB, class 6

Format - 51.5 seconds,

20 continuous photos, 8 MP, least compression - 8.6 seconds,
20 continuous photos, 15 MP, least compression - 13.4 seconds,
20 continuous RAW photos - 44.3 seconds

2) Transcend 16 GB, class 10

Format - 46.2 seconds (the other cards are 8 GB so this time is not relevant. I included it for the sake of completeness),

20 continuous photos, 8 MP, least compression - 8.4 seconds,
20 continuous photos, 15 MP, least compression - 10.8 seconds,
20 continuous RAW photos - 31.

Works very well with my Canon Rebel T1i. Very fast and I don't get buffer bars when recording HD videos. This is a Class 10 SDHC and it really is worth every penny you pay for it. Frustration-free packaging is a BIG plus!

I will be writing this review for both SanDisk Extreme SDHC class 10 8gb and Transcend SDHC class 10 16gb.

I bought SanDisk class 10 and Transcend class 10 for my new Panasonic LX5. I got both card because no one really did a comparison with a compact camera and I was just going crazy trying to see if there is any big difference between the 2 cards.

SanDisk Extreme package box indicated it's water proof, x-ray proof, shock proof, temperature proof. I am not ready to spend $50 to see if it really stand up to it's words. And I don't think normal people would go through the extreme condition in taking pictures or videos.

Cut the story short, I really want to see if there is any difference in writing performance between the 2 cards in a compact camera. There is a continuous burst mode in LX5 and the manual indicated it is only limited by the condition of picture environment and performance of the SD card. Within the mode there are 2 different settings:1) speed priority or 2) picture/quality priority. The shutter speed is much faster with speed priority compare to picture priority.

I first formatted both cards out of box then put each card in series of test(3 rounds each setting for each card) shooting at the same object under same lighting condition. The results:
Speed Priority:
SanDisk Class 10 8gb
22-33 shots before camera stopped to allow the card to catch up with writing.

Transcend Class 10 16gb
22-24 shots before camera stopped to allow the card to catch up with writing.
