Premium UHS-II SD cards for the camera enthusiasts and professionals, especially if you have late model fast cameras. Among the best on the market.
These normally cost twice as much in Aust camera stores.
I bought the 64GB at $65 from Amazon US previously. Speed tested it and got 250/130 so not too far from spec speeds.
Make sure you choose the Amazon US stock for this price. The AU price may vary a little with the daily exchange rate.

Waterproof (IPX8)/ Dustproof (ipx6)
Up to 277MB/s read speed and 150MB/s write speed
Toughness design (18x stronger than standard UHS II card)
Supports 4K video recording
Five (5) year limited Warranty

    Good price, and it's from the Sony store, so it's not a phony. The 128 is not much more though…

    But I am still waiting it out for the ProGrade 128GB V60 to come back in stock.

    •  

      Yep, damn good prices.

    using this for my mirrorless: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07NLYT72D/ref=twister_B07NLWRP...

    it's not as "tough", but seems to represent slightly better value for the 128Gb version

      My first UHS-II was actually the 64GB Lexar 1667. I upgraded to this Sony to get both faster read and write speeds. I don’t buy SD cards often so more “toughness” and faster speeds are worth the extra 20 bucks amortised over several years. Funny enough, I buy cameras more often than SD cards ;-)

      Lexar used to be top dog (previously owned by US company Micron), but the Lexar brand was sold to a chinese company and reports are all over of dud cards since then. I would only buy Sandisk, Prograde or Sony in this speed class. There are probably other good brands, but i would avoid Lexar. Just my 2 bob.

    Thanks OP, been after a deal on these for a while

    Nice find OP, wish I had seen this deal for UHS II while hunting for a fast SD card last night! I ended up purchasing a Sandisk Extreme Pro microSDXC 64gb w/ adapter for $20 with read/write of 170/90. I was originally looking for a uhs-ii card but I could only find a Lexar card that was within budget however was worried about fakes.

    Does Tough-M stand for Tough Mother***ker?

  •  

    This is still the M graded card which has fast read, but write is slower. On higher end cameras be advise that it's gonna buffer a little but WILL out perform any Sandisk. If you want the fastest, get the G graded. BEST SD card EVER.

    •  

      Expensive too though, nearly 4x this price point.

        If you want the BEST, you got to pay for it no. Hahaha I have the G graded cards. This M is for a backup

        •  

          True. If I shot pro maybe, but for a consumer / prosumer, the M is plenty. Haha.

    •  

      Actually the Sandisk Extreme Pro 300MB/s is faster, but is 3 times more expensive. Hence I think the Sony Tough M at this price is best bang for buck.

      •  

        Sandisk is great. IF you can buy the right one. I've seen 300mb/s but when your speed test it, it's running 90mb/s.

  •  

    128GB has gone back up in price? Showing as $143 for me :(

    •  

      Yep, the 128GB US stock is sold out so the US selection is no longer visible. So the UK stock price now shows.

    M series are excellent cards. Pratically not much difference in the real world. Basically just slightly smaller buffer if you shoot on high speed and fill the buffer. I have a 128M and 64G and there is little/no discernable difference in practice.

    The read speed is great on both. Just get a good reader.

    Just had a look at the stats and for photography (my use case) it's not much better than a SanDisk ExtremePro when it comes to write speed. Only advantage I could see is read speed which isnt really critical.

    Nevertheless, still a good deal for those who want it.
