Disadvantages: there's a faster version with the same capacity for less money
Another day, another memory card review - this time for the 8GB Lexar 'Premium' SD which has a current retail price of £19.99 from amazon.co.uk. The price is a little odd to be honest, as the newer (and faster) version of this card costs only £7.99.
I purchased this particular card on the strength of the Lexar cards which I have previously owned and have been very impressed with. The card isn't Lexar's quickest on the market (that title is reserved for the cards in Lexar's 'Professional' series) - but I only use the card for transferring files between my computers, and not in any speed-reliant devices (high-res video recorders, or DSLR cameras etc).
Design, Appearance & Performance

I know looks aren't important in a device of this nature, but the Lexar appears professional with a black body and a silver and blue trim. The write speed is rated as 60x, which, on paper translates as Class 4 (it can maintain a write speed of at least 4mbs per second).
In the five months that I have owned the product, I haven't encountered any card errors or random losses of data - so no issues to report performance-wise. As I previously mentioned, the card isn't specifically designed for devices which require blistering write speeds - however, it *can* actually cope with whatever i've thrown at it. For the purposes of this review I gave it a once-over to check its speed, and it just about manages continuous shooting mode in my Nikon camera, and 720p video is similarly not an issue.

Overall, the 8GB Lexar Premium SD is a good product which combines reliability and a solid performance. However, in regards to value for money the card isn't the best - the sensible thing to do would be to buy the faster version of this card which costs over £10 less.
Summary: Reliable sd card
