After having three Lexar SD playing cards fail on me in a single yr I swore off Lexar. The playing cards have been purchased shortly after the unique Lexar was bought. They could have improved their high quality management since then. However, I now attempt to purchase solely SanDisk and ProGrade, with an occasional Transcend. By no means had any issues with any of those. I used to have largely Lexar playing cards, however I simply do not wish to take the possibility anymore.
