Kingston Class 10 UHS-1 Ultimate SDXC Card (64GB) Review
     Wed, May 28 2014 | 4:05P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For todays review we have the Kingston Class 10 UHS-1 Ultimate SDXC 64GB card. Kingston has been making reliable, high performance memory for many years. This SDXC card is no exception. It supports UHS-I technology and supports Class 10 performance when used in a non-UHS-I capable device. What is UHS-I? UHS stands for Ultra High Speed. The -I denotes that the card should have at least a minimum write speed of 10MB/s, aka, Class 10 performance. You will commonly see this as a U with a 1 inside it. The Kingston Ultimate easily meets this spec. and is rated at 45MB/s write and 90MB/s read speeds."

Up for review today I have the Sacool Bluetooth stereo headset from Avantree and its aimed at active people as it is lightweight and even splash proof so you could take it running outdoors and not worry about the rain.
