    Picked one of these up on a NewEgg gift card for free. Has anyone used a beast card like this in their P3P? Any noticeable difference with 4K quality?

    Rated up to 95 MB/s Read and 90 MB/s Write.

    Good to hear. UPS just delivered. Think I'll wait until Monday before sending my bird off to DJI for a couple of months. Want to try this new card out over the weekend first. Not like they are going to be working over the weekend anyway.

    It won't make any difference to the quality of the video.....the only advantage you gain is in download speed to your computer with the 95MB/s read speed . The write speed is of no advantage, as the Phantom only has a bit rate of 60Mb/s,-(in 4K)-, which is less than 8MB/s.

    At least it's future proof for the Phantom 4 which will hopefully have a much higher bit rate.

    For multi bracketing raw files the requirements are higher than 4K.

    I don't know the maximum write speed of the phantom. It is probably way less than the specs of that card. But it's better to be above than below.

    My slow as card benchmarks around write 8MB/s read 40MB/s.
    The included card is closer to write 25MB/s and read 70MB/S (on my computer).

    I do notice quite a big difference between hem when taking multiple images fast/bracketing. So faster than 8MB/s is definitely noticeable when taking photos.

    It would however be nice to see a benchmark between different cards and how fast the phantom empties the buffer with each.

    Using exfat does this mean you can record over the 4gb file limit?

    Good question.. I looked back over hundreds of video files and nothing was above 3.4 gig or so.. and those were manually cut off. I tend to make a lot of small files rather than one big one.

    I bought a larger Lexar 633x card also rated at 95MB/s. I don't know how it compares to the Sandisk but it's pretty **** fast.

    No, this isn't the fastest, biggest or cheapest. This one wins hands down :)

    Whether you buy the fastest or most expensive card, it will not do anything to improve speed or quality in the Phantom.
    All you stand to gain is a faster transfer time taking files off the card.

    The Lexar has the same quoted read speed as the Sandisk, but is only rated at 20MB/s write speed. (Not that it matters for the Phantom)

    If you want to push it, you are wrong as well.. This is the fastest READ speed card. But the SanDisk is the fastest write speed.

    Unfortunately, Lexar high end cards have a REDICULOUS failure rate! Like 50% out of the box!

    I didn't realise they had such high failure rates :(

    Yeah, that's what we like to tell ourselves. ;)

    Before you know it, your "fast" and "big" memory cards are going to look like dinosaurs. I was just looking on Amazon and they have 256GB sd cards for $80. Probably not fast, but man... these things move very fast especially with all the new dlsr video cameras pushing the boundaries.
