Test is OK, but i strongly rerecorded Sandisk, in history LEXAR (but i find some issue)
It is easy, in SSD best chip make SAMSUNG - and all other SSD is sh* - exept intel 😉

In SD card only some brand make chip and all other buy it a create own, often is diff. controller and some patentet feture.

All camera have compatibility list, everytime sandisk a sometime lexar and this is END.
For old camera is maybe OK kingston - in CF - on D200 work perfectly, on D810 - card error if rou use continous sghooting

SD is more funny, because never report error a continue - this is video feture, don't stop, drop some data and work - special Adata, patriot etc. is funny, if you do continuous shooting or make video etc, no card error detected, but you lose data, corrupter RAW, on standrad shooting all work - don't experiment 😉

SD is: SanDisk, Panasonic (Matsushita), Toshiba and SONY - this brand is in SD consortium, next profi brand is LEXAR, but is more expansive that sandisk - i prefer sandisk_pro UHS-I (excellent product and cost good money, yep UHS-II is better, but cost double)

For slow device alternative relative work, but we use UHS-I/II - and this is diff. story.

Why is alternative garbage ? - because buy all and only consortium own patent for controllers etc. - if alternative buy everything, then cost more that sandisk - uups, what he do?, he buy alternative controller - save money, cost less, but is only trouble maker - now you know it and buy what you want, but never say that i don't warning you 😉

Test on link is completely bad (X-T5)- why? because diff. capacity - more capacity, more speed - because SD write data parallel - yep it defend how many memory chip is inside, often bigger capacity - more same chip's inside.

Buy same Sandisk speed family but 64-1TB and test it 😉 - i check why is SANDISK slower - yep 64GB VS 256GB and 512GB

but i often don't care about peak speed, i care about long speed with-ought OS buffer and reliability - if is speed sufficient for application (for example video - but you know, nobody write video to SD, professionals use some like atmos ninja and write through HDMI to inside SSD disk)

No one has even mentioned the best SD cards, and that would be Angelbird. They have the best-sustained write speed out there. Made in Europe and NOT China, customer service is excellent. I'm not sure why Sandisk is even mentioned considering the sorted past record of that company. They bought G-Drive Tech, a company with the worst customer service ever.
