Lexar Professional 600X UHS-I

RH Numbers

The Professional family leads Lexar's wide range of Flash-based media. The Professional 600X SDHC UHS-I range uses UHS-I (Ultra High Speed I) technology. The UHS-I controller has a bus interface speed of up to 104MBps, making it the fastest category of card available with some very impressive transfer rates. Lexar quotes 90MBps read speeds.

Bundled with the card is a download offer for Image Rescue 4, a really useful piece of software which aims to recover lost or deleted photo and video files.

The Professional 600X SDHC UHS-I is undoubtedly extremely fast but you pay a hefty price premium for the privilege.

Samsung SDHC Plus

RH Numbers

We’ve all done it: dropped things that really should be better looked after, such as hard drives (ouch) and SSDs (nothing to fear). If you are similarly accident prone, then perhaps one of Samsung’s SDHC Plus range is the card for you.

Samsung has given the NAND chips a coating which makes them waterproof (ideal for underwater cameras), shockproof (up to a colossal 1.6 tons) and even X-ray proof.

The cards even look better than your average SD card as they have a metallic finish. And they also have pretty good performance to boot: Samsung gives the cards 24MBps and 21MBps speed ratings for reads and writes, respectively. Capacities don't extend very far, though.
