Disk

Disk:
"I like having the extra media for when I fill up the main disk or should the main disk malfunction."
_
"A bit faster, but still not close to 40MB s. Perhaps I'm just doing it wrong, or perhaps 40MB s is just theoretical, or perhaps BlackMagic Disk Speed Test uses an outdated process to calculate scores - but for now, I'm sticking to Compact Flash cards, as they all seem to be faster than SD, no matter what SD I use."
_
"Also it is fast however when i copy more then one file or a folder with 1 or more files in it it gives me an error the semaphore timeout period has expired and ive done a lot of research on it i cant seem to get it to work, ive formatted it multiple times under both NTFS and exFAT it will not format as NTFS it will yield an error, i have ran multiple disk checks on it and no luck, i was going to use it to store my music on and some backup files for my computer but it is bad for that."
_
"The speed has no issues keeping up with my Canon EOS Rebel, and transfer speed from disk to computer is good."
_
"The speeds seem to be pretty comparable to the San Disk 45MB SD cards I usually buy."
_
"It holds memory and erases memory as well as reading it off this little disk."
_
"Works as well as the San Disk, but it's cheaper!"
_
"They work just as well as their expensive San Disk equivalents, for much, much, much less in price."

Handle:
"I can't think of many consumer uses that this card won't be able to handle."
_
"Can't complain much at this point, will update should it fail in the next three months, as I have a lot of R W Handles to it."
_
"The cameras technically only required class rating 6 for their HD video so I can't speak to how well this card handles class 10 performance."
_
"In fact I will probably order another one since this seems to be a good storage capacity to handle a 24 megapixel camera like the Sony A6000.I haven't shot any video with it but all my images both Raw & Jpeg have come out fine."
_
"Handles all my pictures from Europe very well."
_

"Writes quickly and is nice for multiple photo shoots."
_
"Not the fastest transfer speeds, but reliable and so far flawless for both photo and video usage with my Canon 6D."
_
"There's noticeable lag when I'm trying to preview the pics and an even greater lag when trying to transfer from the card to my hard drive (using a 7200 rpm 1TB HD to store all of my pics) haven't tried transferring to my SSD because I'm using my SSD to hold my installed programs on so as to not clutter it with gigs upon gigs of photos."

Packaging

Packaging:
"The memory card is great but the packaging is ridiculous."

"I opened, threw away package before checking...my bad and lesson learned, but disappointed it was recommended in the first place!"
_
"It seems to intermittently slow down for short periods causing the camera's memory buffer to fill and stop recording (sometimes after only a few seconds).The average (over extended periods of time) read and write speeds definitely meet the claims on the package but I still found the performance to erratic for reliable video recording."
_
"Realized that its not working in first place, unfortunately I had not opened the package untill 10 25 (and lost ability to Return).Now I tried to look at the warranty and see how sony can help."
