Size: 32 GBPackage Type: Standard Packaging
I've got this card recently and run a CrystalDiskMark test comparing it to a Duracell 32GB Class 10 Duracell High Speed Card 32 GB class 10 Secure Digital DU-SD1032G-C I bought about six months ago. Sandisk is being conservative in advertising their cards. This class 6 card quite comfortably matches the performance of the Duracell class 10 card. Here are the numbers:

Sandisk 32GB Ultra Class 6:
Seq. Read: 18.38 MB/s; Seq. Write: 8.133 MB/s
512K Read: 17.65 MB/s; 512K Write: 0.806 MB/s
4K Read: 2.223 MB/s; 4K Write: 0.617 MB/s
4K(QD32)Read: 2.177 MB/s; 4K(QD32)Write: 0.110 MB/s

Duracell 32GB Class 10:
Seq. Read: 17.13 MB/s; Seq. Write: 10.30 MB/s
512K Read: 15.89 MB/s; 512K Write: 0.701 MB/s
4K Read: 1.313 MB/s; 4K Write: 0.006 MB/s
4K(QD32)Read: 1.875 MB/s; 4K(QD32)Write: 0.006 MB/s

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 current picture for this item shows a Class 10 card which is what I thought I would be getting. When it arrived, it was a Class 6. When I researched the fine print down below the item listing I saw that is was listed as a Class 4. I guess they should make up their mind. For me the Class 6 was a disappointment. At the present time I can't decide whether to keep it or return it. The lesson is - items on Amazon may not be as pictured.

I placed an order that didn't show up for 2 weeks (probably lost in the mail). I emailed Amazon & they sent me another one that arrived in about 2 days.

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 ordered the 32GB card. At the time I ordered, the picture and description were both for a class 4 card. I received the SDSDH-032G-U46. The card is Class 6 and the package says up to 20 MBps. I tested the entire card and there were no bad sectors or anything. Real world read speed is 17 MBps and write speed of 7 MBps.

What can I say that would be valuable to the prospective customer?

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.

I'm not going to talk about using the Sandisk ultra series to store movies and photos. You can obviously do that. You can do that with any card, and pay less doing it.

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.
