The Transcend card performs extremely well with the fastest read and write speeds. As you can see from the results, simply having a "Class 10" card doesn't mean you're going to get a high-speed card. Class 10 simply means the card is capable of up to 20MB/s read speed with no garantee of anything quicker than this, and write speeds can be even slower, as is the case with the card we tested. Test settings were: 50mb to emulate size of RAW files (Sequential), USB3 reader, USB3 port, Windows 7 64bit.
Value For Money - The card is available for £27, this makes it cheaper than the Sandisk UHS-I (upto 45MB/s card) and around the same price as the 400x / 60MB/s Lexar UHS-I card. As the Transcend UHS-I card is a faster card, this makes it good value for money.
