Sandisk Extreme Pro 280MB/s UHS-II Review

Sandisk Extreme Pro 280MB/s UHS-II ReviewThe Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-II 280MB/s was Sandisks first UHS-II card. Like the Lexar 1000x, it’s age shows. It does however still performs faster than the Lexar 1000x in most devices. While this card is still a pretty good UHS-II memory card, it performs rather poorly in UHS-I devices. This card has also been discontinued so if you do find a copy make sure you’re only using in UHS-II cameras other wise you’re wasting money.

Real World Memory Card Performance

This card works very well in UHS-II cameras and is very quick. However, I’ve found it has very poor performance when used in UHS-I cameras or devices. For that reason I don’t recommend this card, there are better options from other brands like Sony, Delkin, Adata and Transcend.

UHS-II USB 3.0 Memory Card Readers

To get maximum speed when transferring from this card to your computer, you should always use a UHS-II memory card reader, or else you’ll be somewhat wasting the best features of UHS-II memory cards – crazy fast read speeds.
