These are great, absolutely first rate cards with read speeds up to 90 Mb/sec, write speed up to 40 MB/sec. I own 2 of them, just bought two more.

Adorama has the 32 GB size on sale for $34 for two cards, which I was about to buy, when I stumbled upon this deal, for $7 each for the 16 GB size.

That’s a great price (certainly beats Amazon’s $18), but keep in mind it isn’t exactly that fast and really only writes at about 30MB/s.
The spec is 40 Mb/sec. It's plenty fast. It's more than double the speed needed to be UHS-I. It's not the fastest card out there - but that's why Samsung is replacing them with stuff that's double the speed - but it's triple the speed of what most folks would consider an entry-level "fast" card like a SanDisk Ultra. I'm not talking about using it for 4K video. I'm talking about still photography in cameras that have 14-18 Megapixels per frame. It's plenty fast for that. Unless you were shooting high speed bursts in cameras that were over 20 Megapixels, this card's not going to be a limiting factor.

the item price is great, but their shipping estimation is atrocious (for Croatia, it's over $30).
Actually, they do that to discourage you from buying it - in the U.S. the shipping is free. They really do not wish to sell the cards internationally and deal with customs declarations. They have sold a couple of thousand of them in the U.S. in less than a day, and they are not set up to efficiently sell products internationally, so they force you to use a carrier that handles the customs processing for them (and charges them $25 to do it).

Thanks for posting this! I just picked up 4 of them, though the price is a couple bucks higher now. Still a great deal!
Likewise. I've got some older SDHC cards and at this price, I can see if my camera is any faster to clear the buffer with these.

thx for the reply, could be just that. Although i don't see how it affects them for stuff in this price range, there is no customs (at least not here).
