SanDisk is dependable - unlike many other companies when they list info such as speed it has been accurate and most often on the conservative side whereas most other brands end up slower than they advertise.
I have not lost a single picture to a failed card. On two different occasions overly helpful family members have machine washed my clothes and
a SanDisk SD card
(For some people pockets seem to be decorative). The results - nice a clean card. No damage & still ticking.
And no I do not keep my cards in my pockets - they go strait into my case. The 2 instances were just unusual flukes.
I have to admit I definitely come across as a fanboy and it's a bit embarrassing
. It feels quite weird cos I'm normally jaded and pessimistic.
Now I have to go knock on wood - no darn it I will go hug a tree just in case - better safe than sorry!
If you keep watch for sales you can find some awesome SD card deals.
