Sandisk Ultra SD Memory Card Review

Sandisk Ultra SD Memory Card ReviewThe Sandisk Ultra is sort of Sandisk junk card. They aren’t yet available in the U3 or V30 speed class and their performance in general is very slow. But not all is bad with the Ultra cards. They do have some very impressive read speeds, it’s just the write speeds are usually on the bottom of the charts.  This could still be a good memory card for videographers that are using cameras that don’t record in a very high bitrate. For example the Micro-SD version of this card is a great sd card for the GoPro.

Real World Memory Card Performance

Read world read speeds in the Sandisk Ultra are impressive, but write speeds are where they card falters.

I can get 36MB/s with a USB 3.0 memory card reader, but I typically see slightly slower in my camera memory card tests.
