So far this is the best deal I have seen. Been waiting for this to go on sale on black Friday.
It didn't drop but now it did.
Was really hoping for it to drop to $50 or like $40 but still a great deal.
Picked up last year on Amazon this one in 128Gb they are amazing cards.

So if there is anyone out there that does pro work and needs cards in 2's (dual slot cams) you can get the 128's for a dollar less in pairs. Net you about 2400 raw+jpg in seq+backup

That was my concern as I have read a lot of people have had issues with Lexar cards…I really like the price but not sure if they are reliable

You have a point. The only time I have had issues with a memory card in two decades of owning all kinds of cameras is with a Lexar UHS-II card in my Sony A7III. I stay away from this brand every since.

How can you tell how many pictures 128G would hold without knowing what body and what kinda raw or jpg format is selected?

​I'm basing my estimates off Fuji (which if anything is notorious for exorbitant file sizes) Raw+Fine from their 26mp sensor (my kit is xt3+xt4+x100v), come in at 28mb+16mb per shot. This is in line with the average raw size across the majority of popular sensors right now (apsc or ff). While sensor size and the specific in camera conversions do affect filesize, bit depth is going to be the biggest factor and in all but some edge cases the most popular cameras vary little if at all in that regard. I would be extrememly surprised if someone reported less than 2600 photos from a 128gb sd, and would expect significantly MORE from an older camera (I have a D700 I take birding and my uncompressed raw files at ~25mb but the Fine, L Jpegs are only ~6mb)

I am, and I have intermittently without fail. I have had other cards fail... Sony, ProGear, SanDisk.. But I still use those too. Here's a better question.. Do shoot professionally? Any card can and will fail. If you don't have a dozen cards in your bag, irrespective of brand, you're not prepared.

Today now, if you're a professional, 128 gb is small. Photo RAW size have gotten a lot bigger for example, Sony a7iv Uncompressed RAW size is about 68 megabytes. When capturing 2,000 photographs, the total size is already 136 gigabytes. That's why i go with 256 gigabyte cards now because 128 just isnt enough anymore.

Very true; the OP is stuck on a card with a buried write speed (the only rating that matters), hidden because it maxes out at 120 MB/s. What's worse, Lexar has two V60 UHS-II versions, at the fake numbers x1667 and x1800, both of which are slower than the cheaper and better PNY.

I've been using Lexar cards for PRO WORK for almost 10 years now and NEVER had one fail. I've had a SanDisk fail and a Samsung card fail…

Its not the same company as it was 10 years ago. Now Lexar is owned by chinese firm Longsys. I personally had one new "Lexar" card failure and never had a SanDisk failure…
