Received two of them from Adorama today.
When purchased in quantity it had an additional discount bringing the cards down to $34.95 ea. This is only $4.00 more than I paid for the class 10 Extreme cards so I just had to get them. :biggrin:

Popped them into the D-7000 and I can say at least formatting and review of images are really fast, noticeably faster than the Sandisk class 10 cards. I have not tried any burst shooting

My el-cheapo $1.99 card reader recognizes the card. My Lexar Pro card reader recognizes the card so I don't need to find a compatible reader.

Overall a great investment since the D7K can actually use the speed.

Yeah, I didn't even consider that when I ordered. LOL
Once they arrived I thought

Oh Sh"%, I wonder if my readers will work.

What will these cards do for me that my Transend C10 16GB cards don't do for less than 1/4 the cost?? I could care less if formatting in camera takes a fraction of a second less. Why do you worry about the time it takes to review images? Am I missing something? GH

The faster cards will allow the buffer to clear considerably faster. Dowloading images to the computer are also way faster. I also have the Transcend class 10 cards and there is no comparison. The performance of the D7000 is much improved. You do get a few extra shots before the buffer fills.

Thanks but clearing the buffer fast is not important to me but probably is to some. I am happy to say that I have reach a point in my life where I don't HAVE to have the latest and greatest gear. That statement coming from a guy that once paid $50 for a 56mb CF card! GH

It all depends on what you shoot...

I recently switched from D300s to D7000, and the lower buffer depth was a difficult pill to swallow. Anything that helps in clearing a full buffer faster mitigates the problem!

The Extreme Pro UHS-1 cards take about 9 secs to clear the D7000 buffer, at about 27 MB/s. Your Transcend cards take about 2.5 times as long! Check out this guy's performance tests here:

Download to the computer is also faster. I shot at my daughters wedding and 200 images downloaded in about 15 minutes.

Took longer to burn a DVD.

Just as a side note, one 16gig is cheaper than two 8gigs...... If you already have a couple of 8 gigs, you may want to get a 16gig and keep one of your old 8gigs in the second slot.
