Digital Camera World Verdict

The PNY EliteX-PRO60 is an ideal balance of price and performance. It's capable of read and write speeds fast enough for the vast majority of stills and video requirements, while being one of the least expensive UHS-II cards available. Offering such superb value, it's a smart choice.

PNY offers several classes of SDXC card. This EliteX-PRO60 is the second fastest model in the brand's SD card line-up - the top spot being occupied by the EliteX-PRO90. Naturally, the PRO90 boasts faster read/write speeds than the PRO60 we have here, but the PRO60 is still no slouch, thanks to its rapid UHS-II transfer bus. And the best bit is the PRO60 costs around one third the price of a PRO90 card of the same capacity (at the time of writing), making it potentially terrific value if it performs as advertised.
