The Verbatim Pro Memory card is a mid-range UHS-I U3 SD memory card. While the card doesn’t have the fastest write speeds, the u3 rating guarantees a minimum write speed of 30MB/s, making this still a great card for any 4k video recordings under 240Mbps.
Verbatim Pro U3 Review
These scores put this card in a similar speed class to the standard Sandisk Extreme Cards. Actually, this card did outperform the Sandisk Extreme by about 10MB/s.

Verbatim Pro U3 For Video
For 4k or 8k video, the Verbatim has a U3 or V30 rating. This means it is guaranteed to sustain a 30MB/s data stream. When shooting video it’s important to have a fast guaranteed write speed since the camera can’t rely heavily on the buffer for long recordings. While the card performs at 68.0 Mb/s occasions some speeds can drop as the card gets closer to being full or if it’s fragmented in any way.
30Mb/s is still very good and this will allow a recording of any video bitrate of 240Mbps or lower. With h.265 growing in popularity, this 240Mbps should produce some very good results with 4k video. Higher bitrate recordings may work, but this card only guarantees 240Mbps.
