Lexar SDHC Memory Card Review!!

A couple months ago I purchased a new HD Camcorder for myself, as my old one is literally a dinosaur. (I mean, one of the first HD camcorders they ever made). Of course, with purchasing a new electronic, it also means buying all the accessories; extra batteries, memory cards, etc. I bought what I thought was a good memory card, a 32 GB SDHC class 10. Worked great the first time I used it, and I thought I was set. The second time I decided to record, I had been filming for about 30 minutes when a notice flashed on my camcorder screen. Something about the card overloading, and needing to reformat. It wasn't out of room, it just couldn't get the information saved fast enough. Of course, reformatting meant I lost all my video, and this happened twice within one evening. Needless to say, I was NOT happy! That started my search for a new memory card, one that would be able to record for 30 minutes straight without any problems. 

After a lot of research, my quest led me to Lexar, who graciously offered to send me an SDHC Platinum II memory card, with a 100x speed. 

I was both hopeful and yet worried, because I did not want to lose any more precious videos! I put it into my camcorder, and took it for a test run. It worked great, but I still wasn't satisfied. A few minutes wasn't enough to gain my entire confidence, so I took it to another event, and recorded for over an hour without any breaks. Guess what? The Lexar SDHC passed with flying colors, and didn't lose any of my data! Pictures and video were both captured and held securely on the card. When I downloaded the data to my computer, I was also impressed with the speed of transfer. The other card had taken quite a while just to transfer half an hour of video; the Lexar card had over 2 hours' worth downloaded to iMovie within literally minutes! 

The best, most reliable SD card I've ever used!
So, if you're looking for a safe place to record your priceless videos and/or pictures, I definitely recommend you get Lexar. They have become my go-to source for memory cards. You can't go wrong with Lexar!

  2. I just bought a new digital video camera, and was wondering which card to get. This sounds perfect. You didn't mention the retail value, but it is $70, so I have to think about that.
