As well as the Lexar Professional 133x 4GB SD card, I also own the 2GB version, which I have previously reviewed.
Memory cards are often overlooked as pieces of photographic equipment. In fact, choosing the correct memory card may be the difference in capturing or missing a vital shot.
It's difficult to write a review about an SD Card, as there is only so much you can say about it - However, having a slow card can really let you down as a photographer.
After doing some research about the various memory cards available, I came to the conclusion that the Lexar Professional 133x SD Card is the best on the market for my needs.
Firstly in terms of the appearance of the product (not that the visual design should really matter, seeing as it spends its time inside the camera) - the gold and black colouring looks very stylish and fits in nicely with the other 133x cards which Lexar has on the market.
With my old card which I often used in my DSLR camera, I couldn't maintain more than 10 shots at the shooting rate of 3 frames per second. However, with the Lexar I can rattle through around 80 3fps shots without it breaking a sweat - this is the case with both the 4GB and the 2GB version.
I'm sure there are other cards as quick as this on the market, but this is a quality product from a decent company - highly recommended, for all devices which use SD cards - not just for cameras.
In fact, i'm impressed with Lexar as a whole - i've got an excellent card reader which i've had for years, which has never let me down. (review to come).
