  Not the Ultra II, Newer rebranded Ultra instead.

| | See all Rawwrr's reviews (2)

You will receive the newer rebranded Ultra card instead, just like I did. I wanted the older Ultra II line, despite Sandisk claiming these as the same but just repackaged, which is not true (New Ultra line says on packaging "upto 15mb/s Transfer Speed... Write Speed Lower " The older Ultra II line says "minimum 9MB/s Sequential Write" and from various online reviews, the older Ultra II is significantly faster. I use this card along with some Sandisk Extreme III in my 450D. Normal shooting it sees no difference. In burst shooting the Ultra is a hair slower to flush out the buffer.

Here is a crystaldiskmark test done on v3.0 x64:
Sequential Read : 20.725 MB/s
Sequential Write : 12.036 MB/s
Random Read 512KB : 19.766 MB/s
Random Write 512KB : 2.384 MB/s
Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 4.178 MB/s [ 1020.1 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 0.020 MB/s [ 4.9 IOPS]
Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 4.243 MB/s [ 1035.9 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 0.019 MB/s [ 4.7 IOPS]

  Superb brand you can trust

If you feel you don't want to risk purchasing an unknown, or little known brand, you can always turn to Sandisk. Got mine in the post today, brilliant memory card, fits tons of pictures (9mpx Canon SX110) so very pleased.

Widely acclaimed memory card for performance (high speed) and durability for digital cameras, so following that trend.

  Don't be fooled by the pictures / text

This is just the card, despite the description and image, it's a decent card and reasonable value (you can get cheaper) but if you are buying it because you get a card reader (and still a lot of card readers can't handle SD HC) you won't get one !

Great value card, My only disappointment is that it doesn't come with The reader pictured, other than that this is a great card to buy

  Fantastic Price for a fantastic product!

Great item, all you need to take your snaps without having to upload all the pics on your pc to save space! At 8 mega pixel you can take around 2000 shots which is superb!
