@zippy the pinhead: Indeed.

As far a I know, Lexar's are pretty reliable. (Not a cheapo brand)

@lordwoot: Yeah Lexar and Sandisk are the top. I just see that Lexar has a "Professional" Edition which is 133x speed transfer instead of this one which is at 100x speed. I just got a Sandisk the other day, mainly because all my other cards are Sandisk, and it seems that Sandisks have a 30mb/s transfer while these are all advertised as 20mb/s transfer. A good deal for a backup card, I may get one just incase I lose another.

EDIT: Found the same exact one for a buck cheaper or so with free shipping as well: http://www.buydig.com/shop/product.aspx?sku=LXLSD32GBSBNA100&omid=200&ref=cj&tab=descript

@myspaceisacult: Well the Buydig price is $31.95, so it is $1.96 more for the base price. When you take into account shipping, free at Buydig and $2.99 at Amazon, the end price comes out $.99 less at Buydig.

Another thing is that the Amazon deal is actually for J&R, not Amazon itself.

If you look at the specs on Amazon, they list the card as a class 10 with a transfer rate of 15mb/sec.
Buydig lists the card as a class 6.

Altough the price is great, I am hesitant to purchase this for my DSLR camera. It may impact the transfer rates and slow down my abilitiy to capture key moments in time (from a professional standpoint).

Typical point and shot cameras general come with class 4 and class 6 cards anyway.

I will be on the fence with this one today.....

My class 10 cards take the same amount of time as my class 6 cards do. They may be a millisecond faster but it's not noticeable enough to care.

@szmooz: Don't pay any attention to the class rating; it's a minimum, not an absolute. Lexar says this card will do 15 MB/s. If you're a pro, you should know whether that's enough to keep up with your camera's capability—but if you have to double-check your camera's specs, I won't tell anyone.

slightly better deal with free shipping if you are planning to buy 2: http://www.adorama.com/ILXSD32G1P22.html

1. There are 2 kinds of Lexar cards being discussed here, the Adorama is the Class 6 card whereas the JR.com http://www.jr.com/lexar-media/pe/LXR_SD32GBSBNA1/
is the Clasx 10 one (they are both Lexar 32GB Paltinum II). I ordered 2 directly from JR for $62 or so (shipping is cheaper than on Amazon).

2. These are rated 100x (Class 10 just means baseline as a previous poster already mentioned) which translates into 15MB/s this is suffucient for full HD video and burst photography on all Pro-sumer DSLRs such as the T2i and T3i and the D7000, things might be tighter for video on the Pro cameras like the 5DMarkII or the full frame DSLRS.

I went for this deal since I'm getting a dslr for xmas and the price can't be beat. I was going to get the SanDisk Extreme which states 30mb/s (though over twice the price) but the reviews on this are showing good writing speed, especially for an average user.

Don't forget to format the disk in your camera so you don't get corrupted data.

@rangerdoc: I got the Sandisk 30mb/s literally yesterday from B&H and I can vouch that it's a big improvement from the class 4 I had lost previously. I went for that over the Lexar Pro Edition which was around the same price ($55 for a 32gig card is not that terrible really, when Amazon has the same card for $72). I've never had problems with Sandisk and although I know Lexar is the other top brand for SD cards, all my cards just happened to be Sandisk, and as others have stated, both being class 10, Sandisk seems to label themselves for faster data transfer.

Just a reference, my class 4 I was only able to shoot 5 pics before my Rebel T2i started to slow down, shooting as 18MP + RAW at the same time. This new Sandisk I have I shot over 20 shots continuous with no slowing down, and I believe it got rid of the Jello effect from my full HD video recording while panning the camera. I'd get this Lexar as a backup for the great price, not as a primary though.

@rangerdoc: I have a T2i, all it needs is a class 10 card for video and burst, you will be absolutely fine with these since these go upto 15MB/sec

Thought this was a good deal, but went to the sight & the price is now $39.99...but still free shipping. Not such a good deal now.

This is Class 6, not Class 10.
