REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
The Lexar SD card provided us with some great results throughout our benchmark tests, proving to us that it will supply you with consistent performance. This can be crucially important when it comes to capturing those great opportunities, or when taking 4K and 3D video. While it would have been an added bonus to see this SD card listed with a speed class 3 rating, we can still see that the Lexar SD card has continuously provided write speeds that are greater than the 30 MB/s mark.
A quick check on Amazon shows us that the Lexar Professional 600x SDXC Cards are available for $113.95 (64 GB), $216.95 (128 GB) and $494.99 (256 GB), which is pretty awesome considering that Lexar has the 256 GB SD card listed for $629.99. On top of the SD card, you are also going to receive free Image Rescue software that can help retrieve those precious photos that may have been erased or corrupted. Going one step further, Lexar has also included their lifetime warranty with the card as well.
The Lexar Professional 600x SDXC Card is an amazing storage option for your camera, especially if you are a wedding photographer who wants to ensure that they do not make the same mistake as our friend from the beginning. For a SD card that has a reasonable price, has a bunch of features included with it, and can provide consistent performance, it deserves nothing less than The SSD Review’s Editor’ Choice! After all, this is the largest SD card available on the market right now…and fit’s just right in my Canon EOS 6D!

I have actually been considering a high-capacity card such as this to use a semi-permanent storage drive in the card reader slot of my MacBook Pro. The computer came with a 512GB solid state drive, and this would effectively increase that by 50%, while allowing it to be removed with exceptional convenience.
The one downside to using a card this large as a professional photographer is that it inevitably leads you to put all of your eggs in one proverbial basket. If you shoot a large event or project all on one card, and it fails, then you’re in big trouble. Splitting up events/projects onto smaller capacity cards can sometime be a huge advantage if a card becomes corrupted or fails. That way, you are only losing a small portion of the coverage, and not the entire thing.
You can use a small sd card for that purpose like the Transcend JetDrive or a Nifty MiniDrive (you have to put in a microSD card of your own. Be sure to check the right model either 13-15 inch and year, some models have a deeper sd card reader than others. Mine stays flush to the macbook and is very hard to get out, and will never fall out.
