Quick Write Speeds for HD Video and Fast-Action Photos
Unleash your digital camera's potential with the SanDisk Ultra SDHC 16 GB memory card. The SanDisk Ultra SDHC memory card is Class 4 enabled, making it ideal for capturing HD2 video with an HD camera or camcorder. More speed and proven reliability are great for high mega-pixel, feature-rich cameras, which means you won't have to wait on your memory card when taking pictures or videos.
Reduce the Wait When Transferring Video or Photos to Your Computer
Conventional memory cards can result in slow transfer speeds when uploading video or photos to your computer. The SanDisk Ultra SDHC memory card offers up to 20 MB/sec3 transfer speed, reducing the time it takes to transfer stored files to your computer. And the faster you can transfer your videos and photos, the sooner you can share them with family and friends.

Use one memory card for all your vacation photos, and another for all your favorite music--the label makes it easy to see which is which at a glance. Rather than inserting cards into your digital device to review the content, simply look at the label and go.

The Duracell card's write speed is over 10 MB/s, so they are not mislabeling it, but the class 6 Sandisk card is not too far off with write speeds over 8MB/s. In fact, this class 6 card outperforms the class 10 card in reading and writing smaller files.
I hope this information is helpful in your purchase decision.
The good news is: you only need Class 4 for video, so this speed would be plenty for most. Also SanDisk Class 4 is probably as fast (and more reliable) than PNY or Transend Class 6.
The better news is: I was sent a Class 6 card (probably replaced the 4, but never updated). Of course that could also have been a fortunate mistake.
If you need super fast cards for sports photography on higher end DSLRs, I'd recommend the Sandisk Extreme or Extreme Pro cards so that there's no chance of the card slowing down your camera. Otherwise, the card speed only really matters for transfer speeds to your computer. Extremes have the additional benefit of being almost indestructable, This is great if you work in tough situations where water, impact or heat damage (outdoor sports, photojournalism, wildlife) are more common as these cards are meant to survive what your camera doesn't.
I'll only buy Sandisk and this card is a good value.
I am using this memory card in a Cannon T1i Rebel camera. This memory card allows me to take and store 4700 pictures of the highest quality, which are about 5 mb's each. It is overkill. It does also take 1080p video, which i think translates into around 12 hours worth, but thats just an estimate so don't invest to much based on that alone.
I have transfered pictures from the card onto my computer. The transfer rate seemed fast enough. I plugged it directly into the computer, not used a usb cord. I am happy with the transfer speed in that mode. I cannot say it transfers at exactly 20 mb per second, but it was close, or at least seemed to be.
I read on the packaging that it is water resistent, and xray proof. Makes me want to put it to the test, but I dont know if that would be worth the risk.
I don't have any complaints, it's everything I expected it to be.
What makes the Ultra remarkable is the speed that its class DOESN'T describe, that is, nonsequential access. When a flash device is written to for storage, that writing is sequential- not random like disk access on a computer is. So you can get a class 10 card that is very fast in a camera, but in a tablet or settop box it suddenly performs poorly. The Sandisk ultra cards offer both good sequential read/write speeds and exceptional random read/write speeds. If you are using these cards for something like a Raspberry Pi, where your SD card is basically your whole hard drive, you will notice DRAMATIC improvements in performance over most other cards, even those with higher class ratings. I would assume this holds true for things like Readyboost too, if anyone still uses that.
So my recommendation is that for regular storage you buy a more economic card, but for actually driving computing devices, Sandisk Ultra cards all the way.

Using this for stills and video in a Canon 5D Mark III. Not *quite* fast enough - camera will pause after 5 or 10 fast shots to write to the card.Published 6 months ago by jim
