This review is from: SanDisk 64GB Extreme CZ80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 245MB/s
Pros: Definitely strong reviews, maintained a strong competitive edge and has many fans.
Specs looked good considering the time of its initial release, and read/write benchmarks have been consistent, but a few newer models are beginning to outperform for the same price.
Cons: --Initial release approximately mid-2012.
--Prices should have fallen more before now and I would not consider anything above $30 for the 64GB model competitively priced, especially when models nearly twice as fast are a few dollars less expensive.
--Aging reports indicate this nearly 4 year old model is nearing its retirement stage (aka Lifetime or EOL “End Of Life”).
--Hence, lifetime warranty might end soon if you purchase products now. Read vendor’s small print defining Lifetime Warranty.
--What then are your warranty options and outcome if you receive a defective product and use the RMA process?
Other Thoughts: --Do lots of research before buying so you know whether you’re getting an older model or a second generation. There are differences in specs for models ending in -A46 -A75 -G46 -GAM46.
--Has production ended, and are recent/current purchases old merchandise where vendors are clearing inventory? Beginning to see “discontinued” disclosures on a few sites. Might have just convinced myself to settle on the competitive P20 drive which is 1.5 years old, twice as fast and less expensive.
Pros: Capacity, transfer/write speeds, price if similar to competitors.
I've used a couple lower capacity UHS-1/U3 cards in an action cam and dashcam, and they are fast.
My other PNY cards have all been reliable--both SDXC and microSDHC.
Cons: The everyday price as of now is already $49.99, the Egg is $10 above that, so even if it drops $10, that should not be considered a Shell Shocker. Shop around where you buy this item and don't be fooled.
Other Thoughts: Put this to go use in any hardware that shoots video. This is too expensive for use in a cell phone or slow tablet.READ FULL REVIEW
1. Price, only if found below $20. Price was $5 higher during a shell shocker to bring it to today's price--there was no deal--real shocker is the price game.
2. Arrived formatted FAT32 with 29.71GB available space even after a complete Windows 8.1 reformat
3. Compatible with SJCAM SJ5000 wifi sports cam and E-Prance ARX11 rearview mirror dash cam
Cons: 1. Tracking delivery is always an issue within the NewEgg/DHL/USPS partnership.
2. Don’t believe it’s worth nearly double the price of a Class 10 UHS-1/U1 card unless your application is something like continuous fast motion, 3D or 4K HD. Higher read/write speeds are fine if your hardware can handle those specs.
Other Thoughts: Only bought this for use with a sports cam and vehicle dash cam.READ FULL REVIEW
