Big Savings on Sandisk SD and CF Memory

By Anthony Thurston on May 15th 2015

Most of us do not shoot with cameras that have any sort of internal storage. We need memory cards to save images and get them to our computers. Sandisk is one of (if not the),  premiere brands that produce the SD and CF memory cards that we use every day.

Today, we have received word of some great deals currently available on Sandisk SD and CF card two packs over on B&H. The savings are applied instantly when you check out but are only available for a limited time, so take a look below and see if you need any new memory cards.

Sandisk 2-Pack Discounts at B&H

I have a ton of SD cards, but I may just grab a couple of these packs for a rainy day. These are some pretty significant savings, and if you have the money, I highly recommend grabbing a pack or two. Maybe it’s time to rotate out some of your older cards.

What other type of deals are you interested in seeing on SLR Lounge? How often are you interested in seeing them? Your feedback is appreciated and will help us shape the content you see here on a daily basis.

    U1 and U3 are speed grades, like the old Class system. The old Class 2 through Class 10 specs stopped at 10, replaced by the “U” rating. Just as Class 10 was 10MBps minimum write speed, U1 means 10MBps minimum write speed, U3 means 30MBps minimum write speed. This is the number you want to see for things like writing fast video, particularly with today’s 4K and AVC-Intra cameras.

    U3 is independent of the bus interface: both UHS-I and UHS-II cards are available at U3 speed grades. As well, these specs are independent of the SDHC vs. SDXC card type, that’s only about the memory size specs, and whether the card get FAT32 or exFAT as the file format (yes, that’s a mandatory part of the spec, though obviously you could put on any format, but don’t expect devices to understand it).

    It’s worth considering the extra cost if your gear doesn’t yet support UHS-II. It can be a bit confusing. Though this is a decent price on the UHS-II cards… I bought a couple UHS-I cards last month for just over thirty-bucks each.. the extra ten bucks is worth it since I have a UHS-II supporting camera, but there’s also some investment value there, for your next body.

    UHS-I and UHS-II are bus interface specifications. The UHS interface determines the maximum possible read or write speed, which is 50MBps or 104MBps for UHS-I (depending on mode) and 156MBps or 312MBps for UHSII. These are physically different cards, and if you put a UHS-II card into a device that only supports UHS-I speeds, you will get only UHS-I speeds no matter what you do. Which are really, at this point, only an issue for reads anyway. If you card doesn’t indicate UHS (Ultra High Speed), it will probably be a high speed card these days, which has a maximum interface speed of 25MBps.

    Looking at the card, you can easily tell if you have UHS-I or UHS-II. The UHS-I interface is built on top of the same 9-pin interface SD cards have had pretty much forever. UHS-II adds a second row of 8 pins that implement the high-speed interface. This is true of both full sized and Micro-SD cards.

    This is awesome – those 128GB 95mb/90mb SDCards look yummy – just right for my D810 (perfect write speed).

    I just wish they had 128gb microsd cards with same U3 / class 10 for my phone – just sayin’…
