According to Wikipedia, that's what Class 10 means.

I bought 2 of the 32gb versions of this card and have been happily using them for 50mbps 1080p video in my t2i (more or less the same as the t3i) for about a month with no problems. I think they are plenty fast for HD video.

You can get a much more reliable class 10 memory card like from Sandisk and not have to worry about it deleting all of your data - AND it will most likely have a higher GB/sec than the bare minimum to call it a "Class 10" (which is 10GB/sec like this one has).

I don't know about you, but when it comes to recording home videos and taking pictures of my family and friends, I'd like to keep them safe and not have to worry about it becoming corrupt. I'd drop some extra $ just for the peace of mind.

As one who bought the Thrive - I agree it'll find a good home in that upper righr SD card slot.

I wonder how the "failed" cards were treated by their owners. All it takes is some mistreatment (a toss into the car seat, get too hot or too cold, setting it on top of a speaker, etc.) and things will go whonky on it JUST like any other manufacturer's memory card. Treat it bad and it will be bad. Speaking from a lot of experience with these, a little decent care goes a long way.

Someone already answered this: Class 10 means 10 Megabytes per second.

However, people who ask this question are probably under the wrong impression that Class 10 should be faster, because of great companies like Sandisk make their Class 10 cards go much faster.

Class 10 is simply an old classification, mainly certifies that the card in question is "good enough" for certain applications.

Sandisk Class 10 SD cards also come in different speed categories such as 20MB/s, 30MB/s and 45MB/s.

So far the only 2 applications I can think of that really takes advantage of the super fast speeds are DSLR's RAW captures and OS load time.

This is actually what I have in mind...small, bootable Linux distro. I'm not familiar with the brand and the negative comments about speed make me question whether it is reliable. I'm still debating on it though...

On the topic, off the topic:
If you want reliable cards, go with Hoodman cards. Made in the USA and use a newer, more reliable die. Supposedly, and with report, no errors or corruptions like San Disk, etc.

I once bought a 32 gig because I thought using a huge card was a great idea so I wouldn't have to stop to change cards in the middle of a photo shoot. 2nd job using it, about 3 hours into a 4 hour live event its board fried. Everything was gone, including my client. That was an expensive mistake, but lesson learned...now I carry a card wallet full of 4gig cards, by the end of a shoot I've filled 6 of 'em, which means if 1 fails I still have over 80% of the photos I was hired to take.



You are correct sir.

Along with testing regularly helps. Using the disk utilities in Ubuntu and Windows to check.

Of course, are several flash memory tools and diagnostics from the vendor and third parties.

IMHO card is good for storage, and not really designed to be used for heavy repeated read/writes.

Why is everyone down on Centon flash memory cards? I have never had one fail. And even if I did, there is a 5 full year warranty - free replacement. There you go. American made my friends. Keep it in America.

I trust you are getting the files copied to some other media, the more the merrier. You need to play the odds when it comes to changing tech. USB will be gone in less than ten years, and who know what cards (if any) there will be. Remember serial ports?

Got 2 Centon 32GB Class 10 cards from Woot last year also. They are junk. They worked OK in still cameras (Canon SD960, SD550), but would not work on Canon HD camcorders (M40, HF200). The camcorders would not accept the cards as they are too slow. That is worse than a Sandisk class 4 which works fine in the same comcorders at highest bitrate. I am not surprise to hear so many complaints here either.

I'm shocked that none of this discussion has focused on the copy Woot! wrote for the SXDC card:

"How can you not even own a camera in 2012?



It's just that the last Woot!Off was focused, I mean, themed cameras. I know these deals deserve to be discussed, but lets show some love for the writers and admire the copy for a moment, shall we?

This kind of witty repartee can't be bought. After all, no one really buys it now, do we? Moment over; as you were.

I would've bought this memory card, but only if it were on an American Apparel blank.

In all seriousness, 64 GB is a lot of space. It would scare me to have that much data in one little card, waiting for me to lose it.

If it's dropping out on a Canon DSLR, it's not a real Class 10 card. The Canons all write at 44Mb/s ('cept the new EOS 1Dx, which has faster modes). A class 10 is supposed to support 10MB/s = 80Mb/s sustained writes.

Probably not a problem for camcorders, though. The standard AVCHD 1.x camcorder writes at up to 24Mb/s; AVCHD 2.0 is up to 28Mb/x.

Class 10 means 10MB/s sustained writes. If a card went much faster, a company's marketing department would certainly call it a Class 12 or Class 15 or whatever.

But they don't specify the read performance, because that's not a critical issue on a camera, just nice to have when you're transferring files back to the PC. SanDisk has their own performance specs related to read speeds. There are no standards for this here.

Mine's reading 29.8GB in Fat32, NTFS and exFAT... did they mislabel a 32gb chip or am I missing something here? I tried using Acronis Disk Director and FAT32Formatter but they all read 29.8GB. What do I do?
