Super-fast for an SDHC card on a 60D, with a 18.5MB/s write speed, the Lexar hits warp speed on the 650D, harnessing the camera’s UHS-1 potential.

At 27.6MB/s, it’s the fastest card in the group, edging the Transcend equivalent, though it’s rather more expensive.

Pros… The fastest SDHC card in the group, in both the 60D and 650D
Cons… Not quite the outstanding value of the Transcend competitor
