The PNY Elite Performance 32GB SD Card UHS-I features up to 90MB/s read speed. Previous versions of this card have been reported to offer 60MB/s write speed, however the current production card we tested fell short of this mark. The 90MB/s transfer speed is a read speed and PNY states "write speed lower."
Like most SD cards, the PNY Elite Performance is magnet proof, shock proof, temperature proof and waterproof.
PNY memory cards have a lifetime warranty in USA and a 5-year warranty in Europe.
Made in Korea.
Read speed of the PNY card was faster than advertised. Several card readers were able to reach 95MB/s sequential read. The higest read speed we recoreded was 95.857 MB/s in the Kingston MobileLite G4.

Write speed was a different story. We expected this card to be able to reach 60MB/s write speed based on product reviews on Amazon. When we tested the card in eight different USB 3.0 card readers it had a highest write speed of only 38.5 MB/s. In the Nikon D750 it achieved 31.1 MB/s actual write speed. We had a recent production card, made in Korea with a manufacture date of July 2014 purchased direct from Amazon. Most of the product reviews stating faster write speeds were for older cards produced in Japan.
