    Can the Write speed keep up?



    Samsung 64GB SD Card on a Nikon D800 shooting on continuous high, raw quality
    it was able to transfer about 17 shots before slowing down, each image file is about 27 MB each

    this time shooting on continuous low, it was able to shoot about 24 shots before slowing down each RAW file is about 27MB

    I would say that this is more than enough for my usage

    The Samsung product description is "64GB Secure Digital (SD) Card MB-SGCGB Pro Series" in case one is wondering whether the different descriptions refer to the same thing.
    It is this:
    Look at the model number "MB-SGCGB" to be sure

    Samsung memory devices are pretty good.

    but as for speed, i'd still go for the Sandisk Extreme Pro, no matter how cool and silvery the cards look

    I believe that their are faster cards out there, and in time it will only get faster.
    But for now the Samsung is fast enough for my needs.

    Perhaps can do a list of interest and give special pricing?

    can you do a test between Sandisk and Samsung UHS-I cards?

    from the above posts, the samsung seems like an awesome buy for the price. but for those who really need the speed (like me), which one is the faster card? last i saw, the Sandisk 32GB 95mbps Extreme Pro UHS-I was going for $89 (shall not reveal where). if it's a viable option compared to the more expensive Sandisk, the next card i'll buy is the Samsung.
