Horrible Monster SDHC Memory Card | Ruined Most of Vacation Pictures

Jennifer from Spring, TX on 9/16/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I think this card Might work ok for a very basic camera, but not for anything high quality. I recently took 2 trips: -I recently took a trip to Chicago and took over 300 photos. I used my brand new (never used) Sony a6000 and the brand new (never used) memory card that came with it (Monster SDHC Memory Card). On more than half of my photos, large, solid bars ran across huge portions of the photos, and I am unable to recover them. The photos affected are ruined. -On my second trip (less than a month later), I still used my brand new Sony a6000, but used a new, better brand, memory card. The photos all turned out great for this trip. Overall, I do not recommend this product, due to it ruining photos.

Pros: Maybe price? But not worth it if you cannot rely on the product

Cons: - Inconsistent product - Unreliable - Cannot handle high-quality cameras

Great Memory Card

Sean from Puyallup, WA on 6/17/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great memory card for point-and-shoot cameras or any other application not requiring lightning fast transfers. It was included as a packaged item on a camera purchase and has worked flawlessly as expected.

Pros: Inexpensive and reliable

Cons: Not as fast as some high-end cards but that speed is not needed for all applications.

This does what it is supposed to do and capture digital images. The card seems fast; I have tried HD video a couple of times and it recorded nicely in 1080.

Good card

Pros: It came with the camera

Cons: none

Not fast, but not slow.

Rook from Far Rockaway, NY on 3/29/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a bad SD card. Only 16 GB, so if you use it for video, you'll have to clear some space more frequently than with a bigger card. The cards says it's a Class 10. On my PC I'm getting sequential read speeds of 92 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 20 MB/s, which is pretty good for most uses. Not a bad backup SD card. I received it free with the purchase of a camera, so I can't comment on price/value.

Pros: Good read speeds.

Cons: Write speeds aren't that high.
