    I'm done with all the different names/types/classes for SD cards. I mean just look at that card, a mess of names and incomprehensible logos (to the average user anyway). When I am in charge we'll go the way of Wi-Fi and just switch to a number. Higher number = more goodly.

      When I am in charge



        go the way of wifi ?


          Wi-Fi 6 is the new standard. Next will be 7 and so on. Less confusing than all the a/b/G/N/AC or whatever


      What do you use a full-size SD card on these days? Cameras?


        Yes, pretty much just for cameras. I much prefer them than Micro SD cards for that purpose. So much less fiddly. I don't see that changing unless they start building memory in.

      This should help.


    Wouldn't count on getting the speed you pay for. A few of the Sandisk Extreme cards only work at the advertised speed on their proprietary readers.

    The Extreme Plus 150MB/s 128GB memory card was benchmarked using a variety of card readers. The highest sequential read speed recorded was 150.8 MB/s using the SanDisk C531 card reader. Benchmarks in other card readers were 99.2 MB/s and below. The maximum sequential write speed was 88.4 MB/s, comfortably above the 70MB/s card rating. As with the 64GB version of this card, the write speed in the SanDisk C531 reader was lower than other readers.


    The Extreme Pro 170MB/s 128GB card performance was evaluated using USB memory card readers. In benchmark tests, the highest sequential read speed reached 176 MB/s in SanDisk's proprietary card reader. The highest sequential write speed measured 98.6 MB/s. In other card readers this card performed at 99.2MB/s sequential read and 88.9 MB/s sequential write speeds.


    The Samsung EVO Select 256GB MicroSD comes with a SD adapter and offers similar read (using non-Sandisk SD card readers) and better write performance than this card for much less - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/633206. Some people might not be a fan of adapters but personally had no issues with mine in terms of speed/reliability in my A7III + A7C. Tested the card yesterday with a SD adapter via CrysalDiskMark and recorded speeds of ~97R/85W.

    If you don't like adapters, then there are probably other cards out there that actually meet their advertised spec in non-Sandisk devices.
