Looks to be a good deal on UHS-II SD cards which I haven't seen many deals on recently.

I'll be picking these up for my new Sony A7iii which takes advantage of the speed of these cards.

The write speed lags behind some of the good UHS-I cards. A7iii is probably limited by the low write speed or may not get any benefit from it due to its relatively low pixel counts compared to A7R iii.

Yeah, the write speed is only 75MB/s. Which really should be fine for the A7III. I can't imaging a scenario where I fill the A7III's buffer of 89 raws and have to wait for it to write to the card. But man would it be nice to get home after a shoot and dump the cards at 150MB/s with a relatively cheap card. If these were 128 gigs for 136 it would be hard to pass up.

Note that Lexar is out of memory cards business so support won't be available.

I would rather get the samsung 128GB micro SD cards that write over 90mbps for about $40.

I can be patient with the read times but write times need to be there. 4k video on my camera needs faster than the 75 mbps.

I might be mistaken but a lot of Samsung cards don't work well with Sony cameras. I don't have the source at the moment but something to check/research before pulling the trigger.

These cards seem very tempting, just because Lexar as a company has withdrawn from Memory Cards does not mean their products are bad. That said, these cards have awful reviews. I wonder what's up with this!!

I've been shooting on Sony since the A100 and have had all of the A7 cameras [all three gens]. I use a lot of Samsung SD cards, from the older white 64GB SD pro cards [90MB/s read/write] and the newer 128GB mSD Evo Select with a couple of the 64GB Evo Select in the rotation as well. I'm a wedding photographer and have yet to have a single issue using these cards, and I'm talking many thousands of exposures taken on them. Granted, they're not used every single event, but I have full confidence in them.

As for this deal, I bought a couple of these in 128GB format and like Eragorn said, I was able to snag those at $58 a year ago on Amazon, so I'm not feeling this.

I saw these same cards but in a 256gb pair for $150, new from a private seller in San Diego on Craigslist.

I always assumed that micro-SD cards with adapters would not be optimal for use in high-speed cameras (have a Sony a6500) so I've avoided them despite greater availability and often better pricing. Do you feel they work just as well as the normal size? No issues with heat or problems using with adapters?

Indiscernible performance with mSD and SD, I've encountered zero issues.
