    And the Sandisk is still cheaper, even with the Lexars on sale.

    Are you sure the Sandisk is cheaper?

    A single Sandisk 32GB 45MB/s is $43.95.
    A single Lexar 32GB 60MB/s is $37.86.

    I just ordered a two-pack of Lexar 32GB 60MB/s SDHC cards for $70.54.

    It depends on the specific comparison. I think he was referring to the <a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/868906-REG/SanDisk_SDSDU_016G_U46_16GB_SDHC_Memory_Card.html/BI/1848/KBID/2491/kw/SAUSDU16GBU/DFF/d10-v2-t1-xSAUSDU16GBU" target="_blank">Sandisk 16GB 30MB/s card</a> ($16.95) I linked vs the <a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/841481-REG/Lexar_LSD16GCTBNA400_16GB_SDHC_Memory_Card.html/BI/1848/KBID/2491/kw/LESD400X16GB/DFF/d10-v2-t1-xLESD400X16GB" target="_blank">Lexar 16GB 60MB/s card</a> ($21.31), which isn't quite apples to apples if those max speeds are accurate. The Lexar performance would put it in between the 45MB/s Sandisk ($22.95) and the 95MB/s Sandisk ($43.95)


    After looking at it closer, I ordered a <a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/841559-REG/Lexar_LSD16GCTBNA4002_16GB_SDHC_Memory_Card.html/BI/1848/KBID/2491/kw/LESD400X16GP/DFF/d10-v2-t1-xLESD400X16GP" target="_blank">two-pack of Lexar 16GB 60MB/s cards</a> for $36.72. Seems like a great deal for a card that will outperform my old standby, the Sandisk Ultra.

    Amazon is charging $55.64 (52% more than B&H) for the same Lexar two-pack.

    Yes, I was looking at the 16 GB cards. I tend to prefer to have multiple smaller cards than one really big one. In the event I lose or break one, or one simply fails (happened to me twice over the years), I won't lose as much. I generally stick to 8 GB cards, actually.

    I should have realized you were referring to different cards. I have need of faster, larger cards for use with a Canon XA10 video camera. I want to just be able to grab a card, insert it in the image capture device, format it, and resume shooting. I also will back up smaller cards to larger cards and FLASH drives when traveling.
