Top Customer Reviews
I used a benchmark program called "CrystalDiskMark v3.01 x64" to measure, among other parameters, the Sequential Read and Write speed of this card. The card reader I used is the Transcend USB 3.0 Card Reader (TS-RDF5K), plugged into an USB 3.0 port. This is important because if you use an USB 2.0 card reader or USB 2.0 port, the maximum speed will be severally handicapped.
My benchmark shows Sequential Read speed of 47MB/s and Write speed of 32MB/s. See the image I uploaded to 'Customer Images' section for details. The result is consistent with the manufacturer's spec of 45MB/s in Read and 30MB/s in Write. The Write speed, in particular, is about 2.5x faster than the Sandisk Ultra card (which can only deliver 13MB/s).
Of course, the real benchmark has to be done in a real life application. For that, I inserted the Sandisk Extreme microSDHC card (with SD adapter) into my Canon Rebel T1i DSLR, set it to save both RAW and JPEG formats, then took 10 consecutive shots in burst mode. This Sandisk Extreme card took just 14.1 sec to save all 250MB of data in my camera. In contrast, the Sandisk Ultra card took much longer at 23.8s, even though it also qualifies as a 'class-10'.
This is the fastest card I have tested to date. But as it turns out, the card I bought is actually the SLOWEST among the Sandisk 'Extreme' family. According to the manufacturer's spec:
- 'Extreme': Up to 45 MB/s read; 30 MB/s write
- 'Extreme PLUS': Up to 80 MB/s read; 50 MB/s write
- 'Extreme Pro': Up to 95 MB/s read; 90MB/s write
On the other hand, this Sandisk Extreme card performed exactly as advertised, so I cannot complain. Maybe one day I'll break down and try the 'PLUS' or 'Pro' next. For now I'm happy.
As a self-proclaimed non-tech person, one day I decided to read-up on different data backup methods with the aim of deciding on a reliable and easy system for my accumulating digital photo collection. This was a task nagging in the back of my head since my laptop was stolen and I experienced that deplorable sense of loss from losing irreplaceable media. I've come to the following conclusions:
(1) Best choice for backup is a hard drive.
(2) Next best are SD cards which stand for SECURE DIGITAL Memory Card. As in data can be recovered from an SD card that has been floating in the ocean. And since my photos are already on the SD card from my Nikon CoolPix, the most efficient system would be to leave them on the SD card and to continue snapping away with new SD cards as they become full. Easy-peasy. The gradual mutation of 0s and 1s that degrade data quality could be stayed with accessing the cards every 5-10 years.
(3) Worst are CD and DVD disks which can be worn, scratched, and broken. Also, they take forever to burn. Don't do it.
(4) Yeah, the cloud is great and all but I don't want my Las Vegas weekend photos floating around out there in the digital-miasma, especially since I don't know what the future recurring cost of storing my expanding collection would be. And what if I have a dying desire to peer at an old photo of Fido and the internet connection is down?
Based on my evening of reading, I also now understand the different labels and tiers of SD cards. I did some hard number comparisons without understanding given all else equal why a microSD card might be slightly faster than a normal sized SD card, etc. I'm not getting into the specifics but will only say that I am ashamed to have bought based solely on maximum ratio of GBs to price. I don't own a GoPro, so I myself did wonder whether the faster class of SD cards could make a noticeable difference for me. Especially for the more expensive price and for my questionably-compatable electronics.
(5) I put one in my 4G HTC smart phone and one in my Nikon Coolpix S8100 (with an adaptor). I had gotten these gadgets when they were top of the line and hot off their manufacturing assembies but now they are a few years old. I did indeed notice faster "processing" times in accessing and recording photos--namely with the multi-shoot function where the camera keeps taking photos with the button held continuously down. The only slowness I noticed was when booting up the phone from power-off.
(6) Considering the technological advances in cameras, camcorders, and phones that take SD cards, and possible issues of backwards compatibility (SAVE those card reading adaptors along with the SD cards), and the likelihood of my upgrading my gadgets, all-in-all I decided keeping up with similar advances in data storage not a bad investment.
I got the SanDisk Extreme and other cards at a reasonable price at the time of purchase, and have noticed since some price increases. I decided on smaller storage capacities for each of my disks (8-16GB vs 32 or more) because I don't shoot many videos and because of the minimal but extant chance of card corruption--spreading my risk of loss into smaller baskets. I also preferred microSDs that come with adaptors over regular-sized SDs because I imagine more use for microSDs in the future. I bought only the minimum number of disks I needed for my current storage and picture-taking needs as I expect prices to come down in the future.
I save my pictures and music on one card & then make another copy to save elsewhere as pictures often become precious later on when life slows down enough to appreciate where you been.
