    2. Die SanDisk Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I Speicherkarte mit 128 GB hat mich wirklich beeindruckt.
      Als Fotograf und Videofilmer ist Speicherplatz für mich von entscheidender Bedeutung, und diese Karte erfüllt meine Erwartungen in vielerlei Hinsicht.
      Was ist denn kaputt kaputt kaputt gemacht
      Zunächst einmal bietet die großzügige Kapazität von 128 GB viel Platz für RAW-Fotos und 4K-Videos. Ich kann viele Aufnahmen machen, ohne mir Sorgen über den Speicherplatz machen zu müssen.

      Die Geschwindigkeit und Leistung dieser Karte sind hervorragend. Die Schreib- und Lesegeschwindigkeiten sind schnell, was besonders wichtig ist, wenn ich hochauflösende Videos aufnehme oder viele Fotos hintereinander schieße. Es gibt keine Verzögerungen oder Aussetzer.

      Die Robustheit der SanDisk Extreme PRO ist ebenfalls ein großer Pluspunkt. Sie ist stoß- und wasserfest, was sie ideal für den Einsatz unter verschiedenen Bedingungen macht. Ich habe sie sowohl bei extremen Temperaturen als auch bei Regen verwendet, und sie hat einwandfrei funktioniert.

      Die mitgelieferte Software für die Wiederherstellung von Daten ist auch nützlich und hat mir bereits einmal geholfen, versehentlich gelöschte Dateien wiederherzustellen.

      Insgesamt bin ich äußerst zufrieden mit der SanDisk Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I Speicherkarte. Sie bietet nicht nur viel Speicherplatz, sondern auch beeindruckende Leistung und Zuverlässigkeit.

    3. Estoy usando una tarjeta SanDisk SDXC Extreme PRO de 128 GB junto con la suite RescuePRO Deluxe y quería compartir mi experiencia personal hasta el momento.

      Desde que comencé a usar esta tarjeta, noté un aumento significativo en la velocidad y el rendimiento de mi cámara y otros dispositivos compatibles. La capacidad de 128 GB me brinda mucho espacio para almacenar fotos y videos de alta resolución sin preocuparme por quedarme sin espacio mientras tomo fotos importantes.

      La característica que realmente se destaca para mí es la velocidad de lectura y escritura. Grabación continua de fotos o videos HD más fluida y fluida gracias a la rápida velocidad de escritura de la tarjeta. También he notado que transferir archivos a mi computadora es mucho más rápido que con mis tarjetas anteriores.

      La inclusión de RescuePRO Deluxe ha sido un salvavidas muchas veces. En mi mundo de la fotografía, nunca se sabe cuándo un archivo importante puede corromperse o perderse. Este software ha probado ser efectivo en la recuperación de archivos, lo que me da mucha tranquilidad sabiendo que si algo sale mal, tengo una herramienta confiable para recuperar mis preciados recuerdos míos.

      En términos de durabilidad, he usado esta tarjeta en situaciones difíciles, desde sesiones de fotos al aire libre en condiciones climáticas adversas hasta aventuras al aire libre. La tarjeta demostró ser robusta y confiable, lo que me permitió concentrarme en tomar fotografías en lugar de preocuparme por la integridad del archivo.

      Si bien esta tarjeta SanDisk SDXC Extreme PRO y el software RescuePRO Deluxe son sin duda una inversión, puedo decir con confianza que han mejorado mi experiencia general de fotografía y almacenamiento. Si valora el rendimiento, la velocidad y la seguridad de los archivos, esta combinación es definitivamente una excelente opción a considerar.

    4. I bought a couple pairs of these to work with my Sound Devices 8-Series mixer. The cards work exactly as they are supposed to. They are cost-effective and deliver a large storage size for multiple days of recording. I was using 32GB cards and the 128GB size is great in that I do not need to switch cards nearly as often and likewise have no fear of running out of space, as long as I practice good file management and back data up regularly. The 128GB cards permit me to mirror the drives and thus give me redundant recording to multiple drives, regardless of the number of tracks I arm for a recording session.

      these cards have provided me with a great measure of peace of mind due to the larger capacity storage and their seamless function with my sound recorder.

    5. Sicuramente la SD piu’ veloche in scrittura che ho, misurato da pc ha mantenuto la media di 24Mb/s contro la microSD Sandisk Ultra a 18Mb/s.
      In lettura un po’ deludente a solo 30Mb/s contro i 80Mb/s della Ultra.
      Nel test di scatto continuo in modalita’ sport con Sony A290 mostra i vantaggi con scatti in RAW, se si salva solo in jpeg nel mio caso anche la Ultra e’ piu’ che sufficiente.
      Se non si ha necessita’ di fotografia sportiva questa scheda dovrebbe essere abbastanza veloce anche per macchine fotografiche amatoriali piu’ moderne, la A290 ha solo 14M e salvando raw+jpeg si arriva a a un totale di circa 20Mb (test nell’immagine).
      Le dimensioni sono piu’ che abbondanti con piu’ di mille scatti (RAW+jpeg). Avrei preferito 8 o 16 GB perche’ e’ sempre meglio archiviare le foto e tenerne di piu’ per fare rotazione d’uso. ma a questo prezzo direi che va benissimo.

    6. Great value for the amount of space u get it’s definitely worth the money. Comparable with a lot of cameras just google the camera u got and this brand to know if it will be compatible with ur device.

    7. This is perfect size so that I don’t have to switch out my as card during fashion shows and completely miss the good shots.
      The storage capacity is excellent and the proeformance of the se card is top notch!
      This is very easy to use and at the price I purchased it a great. Slur for my money but also my time

    8. Installed in my vette in my PDR slot. Worked instantly. Great to record your rides. Can be used to record anything that happens on your trips. With all the crazy drivers out there on the road, may help with an insurance claim. Or with a traffic stop. Records and displays dates, times speeds, etc. Card has over 1k minutes of record time. Can be deleted as viewed, also saved. Easy to install. Won’t go in incorrectly. Quality of recorded video is great.

    9. Meine Musik-Bibliothek hat mittlerweile doch recht ordentliche Ausmaße angenommen und da bei den MacBooks interner Festplattenspeicher teuer ist, wollte ich diese auf einen externen Datenträger auslagern. Eine weitere Festplatte war mir zu fummelig für unterwegs. Außerdem brauche ich die Anschlüsse dringender anderweitig.
      So habe ich mich entschieden, dass diese Dateien auf eine SD-Karte ausgelagert werden sollten.
      Audio-Files abspielen ist natürlich rein von der Performance her eine nicht sonderlich fordernde Anforderung an diese Karte, dennoch wollte ich ein vernünftiges Produkt.
      Die Karte war mit “bis zu” 200 MB/s angegeben und der Preis ging für mich auch klar. Mit AmorphousDiskMark kam ich auf etwas 92 MB/s (s. Abbildung). Das mag auch an der Infrastruktur des Macs liegen und bei anderen Geräten kommt man da vielleicht auf andere Werte. Sei’s drum: die Karte liefert für meine Anwendung genügend Performance und erfüllt damit ihren Zweck.

      Nachtrag 19.10.2023: Die SD-Karte hat letztlich bei erneuten Einstecken unter ExFAT etwas länger gebraucht bis sie vom Mac OS erkannt wurde (über 30 Sekunden). Außerdem habe ich beim direkten Auswählen einzelner Musiktitel bemerkt, dass die Musik-App noch einen Hauch länger braucht bis der Titel läuft. Ich habe die Karte daher mal als APFS formatiert, da die Karte exklusiv für den Mac vorgesehen ist. Jetzt wird die SD-Karte deutlich schneller erkannt und die Musik-App reagiert wie gewohnt beim internen Speicher. Das hat aber keinen Einfuss auf die Schrei-/Lesegeschwindigkeit, die ich bereits gemessen hatte. Da mir das Phänomen nicht ganz neu ist, denke ich, dass das eher mit Mac OS als mit

    10. I purchased this product to be the dashcam/Performance Data Recorder for my C8 Corvette Stingray. Several other SD cards received poor reviews because the read/write speed was inadequate.

      After the install, it worked great. An estimated 1,000 minutes (over 16 hours) of 1080p recording. Playback and skimming are flawless. Recommend.

    11. Nothing fancy, or ground breaking. Speed is on par with all the competitors (even though in most cases sandisk was first). I’ve been using these cards for over a decade. They are dependable. Would, and will buy again. Just be sure to get them when they are on sale.

    12. Bon produit et peu onéreux en comparaison de certaine grande surface ou j’ai vu ce même produit au prix de 52€! .j’emploie cette SD carte sur l’un de mes reflex (Canon 7DII) depuis des années et aucune panne à ce jour

    13. This SD chip is screaming fast! Much faster than it is rated! I had an older 32GB chip that had all of the same codes attributed to writing to the disk and it was so slow booting up that because I had a Granddaughter who always seemed to swing at the first pitch, I was missing many of her at hits if I wasn’t right on top of the game, giving that chip the 10 or 12 seconds it needed to boot up. And it was also a SanDisk chip!

      Apparently this 200MB/Sec read speed buys you more than just the read speed. It must buy you boot time too, which translates to not missing your Granddaughter’s hit!!!
