I assumed it was all high speed. Now I see it's only 20 MB/s. So these cards aren't (that) good?

In my past experience with Lexar these large GB cards become unwrittable without warning. I never found a fix online so watchout.
Same my lexar just died this weekend

SD card technology seems to be extremely flaky and unreliable in general. Go to Amazon, look up any popular SD card, and you will have many reviews that read like OMG CARD DIED AFTER 3 MONTHS UNACCEPTABLE!

I sure would never store anything important on an SD card.

I just received mine and it is made in Korea. And it has a limited Lifetime warranty. Not bad for $16 tax-in! (I ordered it as a filler with the Asus Blue Cave and used a $10 off coupon - Staples ran out of stock on the Asus so they only shipped the card and kept the $10 off on the Lexar card!)

I've actually bought 3x Lexar cards for a motion-activated camera(read: does not record 24/7), and all 3 failed within 1yr. Replaced with 3x SanDisk cheapos, and have been running over 2 years and counting.

Small sample size, yes, but I know where I would put my money.

I've also had SanDisk cards fail in my dashcam after 1.5yr (which is 24/7). But that's expected as they aren't high endurance cards.

Junk I've had two Lexar cards die on me in the last year! None of my cameras will read them (Nikon, Panasonic, Fujifilm).

SanDisk has been great! Kingston has been no problem either.
