Is this a good deal? I'm looking for a Sandisk 8GB or 16GB with class 6 or faster, so don't quite need this one. Both of my 16GB Kingston cards (class 6) became unreadable on my Panasonic HDC-SD600K. I lost my whole videos of trip to Japan, and I heard Sandisk is the real deal.

I've owned an Extreme II, and it was plenty fast. I've also heard conflicting reports on these HD Video C10's, but the 2 that I got work great!!

With a generic USB 2.0 reader, I get 20mb/s seq. read/write on these cards. If you have the luxury of having USB 3.0, you can go even faster; my USB 3.0 reader does seq. 45mb/s read and 36mb/s write!!

I want to try out an Extreme III/IV on USB 3.0 =)

mikedaley 10-17-2011 12:13 PM

Just about normal price for this size now. Amazon also has a class 10 32gb for $43 with free ship. Prices are falling all around on this stuff.

jaekay 10-17-2011 12:13 PM

in for 1... i was using a ridata 32gb in my go pro camera and my panasonic lumix and the video recording would randomly stop and then restart... hopefully this card will fix that problem.

Ouch. Kingston is just as good a brand however. Wonder what happened.

Don't format it!! You can try using software recovery on your computer when you plug in the card through a USB reader. I've had good success this way. You may not get everything back, depends on how corrupt and/or if you wrote new things to the card, but its definitely worth a shot. I've done this for friends and family, some have had tears of joy just from recovering even part of the data.

I personally use Image Rescue 3, got it when it was free from the manufacturer, but I'm sure others will be good too or if really nec. I may be able to send you a copy.

Just buy the Transcend 16 GB Class 10 from Amazon for $22.47:

http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-C...289&sr=8-1

No sense paying 33% more for a name brand.

Awfully wrong. You are paying for faster speed in this case.

blahblahyoutoo 10-17-2011 01:20 PM

yup, i'm all about bang for the buck but this is one of the cases where i'll pay more for a name brand.

nothing worse than having a card not work, or worse, losing photos from your latest trip.

Tds1010 10-17-2011 02:04 PM

Is this card only good for the Video? or photo and video?

Will this do 45mb/s read 36mb/s write? Just curious... =P

buzzman 10-18-2011 09:14 AM

The same card is on-sale at Best Buy for the same price - maybe this is a so-so deal?

quangus 10-18-2011 09:18 AM

Now $35.33

Looks like they are having somewhat of a sale. I guess sales tax could kill this for some people. I may have to pop over there and pick up the Extreme Pro 8GB for $29.99 and see if that handles in the D5100 more reliably then the Extreme HD Video.

rite237 10-18-2011 09:47 AM

BestBuy also has this for $29.99 in case you want this right away or have some gift cards to use:

Unless you have a high end DSLR, it doesn't matter. A generic Class 6 card is fast enough for 1080p60 video on my Sony NEX-5n camera. The only thing a fast Class 10 is really going to help you with is in transferring stuff to your computer faster, but then only if you have a USB 3/eSATA card reader, because you'll likely be limited by USB 2.0 speeds.

for video yes. but what about burst?

My camera does 10 fps, 16 mp burst just fine with a relatively slow PNY Class 10 card. The camera itself can only do that for a second, so a faster card wouldn't help. You'd need a high end DSLR in order to require a faster card.

lol. um. yea, it would help. it would help in clearing the camera buffer faster.
not useful if you take pics slower, but when you're trying to capture action, it helps a LOT.

and yea, the only buyers of this card are the dslr users. pocket cams have no need for this. their burst is too slow.

drdiaboloco 10-18-2011 10:05 AM

Thanks, OP, for reminding me to look... yet again... for some decently-priced SD cards for my Canon HD camcorder. It will not, won't not read none Class 10 cards and I was miffed at the prices of Class 6 cards. Found some Sandisk 16gb Class 4 cards on Amazon for $19.99, look to be identical to the Sandisk cards I already have. They cruise along with full-HD speed even though marketed as Class 4... If anyone wants some good Sandisk 16GB cards and doesn't really NEED Class 10, here they are:

http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-16G...B0017VRGXU

Oh, and I have Transcend 16GB cards, too, and they've been fine in MY experience.

Which is my point. 95% of the people viewing this Slickdeal would be just as well served by an in-stock Transcend card thats everyday price is a third less.

and you made no mention of that in your original post.

but 95% of people viewing this deal knows what this card is for, and it's advantages.

That's what I'm saying. I have USB 3.0, and its great for transferring large files. However, this card is fast also, and does 20mb/s read/write on USB 2.0. I don't think a Class 6 would do 20mb/s read/write.

Is a Canon T2i considered a high end DSLR? Even on my Class 6 or Class 10, sometimes I get hiccups while recording 48mbit/s 1080p video (the default video setting) You can see an on-screen indicator that the buffer is filling, happens randomly. Also, forget about snapping 18mp pictures while recording 1080p video with these cards (which the T2i can do)

anelly 10-18-2011 11:31 AM

How are these cards so cheap now? I bought this 10 months ago for like $150... Or did I buy something else..?

coolpal 10-18-2011 12:02 PM

thx bought one... the generic C10 cards I have do pretty ok in my T2i, but sometimes refuse to shoot 720p 60fps video... I'm hoping the Sandisk is worth the premium.

The premium is only $10. It used to be $100..
