As cameras have larger files and faster speed I've updated memory cards. I have always used Lexar and have been happy with them.
I gifted this to my brother (Semi-Professional) and he likes it, no complains so far.
I've bought several of these Lexar 1066x cards from Adorama over the past year. While Sandisk is also on the approved media list, if you compare the read and write speeds of both cards, Lexar has the better performance. I don't know if this will matter for my use, but I appreciate the peace of mind. If you compare EQUAL specs for Lexar and Sandisk, the Lexar is a better value. You must be in Sandisk "black" cards at a much higher price.
While I am not a pro, I do have gear that a pro would love to have and use. This card works as advertised. Fast, with good capacity for a weekend shooter like me. My camera produces huge raw files with its 36.3 megapixel sensor and I needed something a little larger than I usually use and after investigating several cards, this was my choice. I am not unhappy. The price is high, but you get a lot for the money.
This card in my D800 set to raw gives me 800 shots, plenty for a day or two on vacation. I've used Lexar for many years and had very few problems. The couple of times there were a problem Lexar was able to retrieve my images and furnished me with a new card-thats a great company in my humble option!
No problems at all with the write speed of these cards no matter what camera you use or what you are shooting. Absolutely dependable too.
I often take burst photos of birds in flight so having a fast, high capacity memory card is important. I use 3 DSLR bodies with different lenses attached so I bought 3 of these cards and have found them to be fast and reliable. While less important to me I can also definitely tell that my USB 3 card reader import speed is much faster when copying files to my notebook.
Bought a couple of these last year to finally try out RAW video on my 5D. They work like a charm. I've tried a few other brands of UDMA 7 cards and found these to be the most reliable as to reaching their spec read and right speed. Even over the flagships like SanDisk.
No disappointments. I own a handful of these and the 32GB versions. What's to say? They work. Use a USB 3.0 card reader, and be very satisfied with the speed of downloading photos and video. You get what you pay for most of the time. If speed of download is valued, and if your application demands a high write speed, then get this or a faster card. If not, that's why they continue to make the slowewr and less expensive cards. Save your money in that case.
I have had no issues with this CF Card and I find 64gbs to be plenty of storage space for my needs to include recording HD video on my Canon 1DX or 5D MkIII. I have yet to fill up the buffer shooting car racing in rapid fire mode (up to 10 frames per second).
