In explaining the products selected, the magazine wrote of the SanDisk Extreme III 16GB card: “Unlike competitors, it’s a tough-as-nails professional version with ‘extreme’ temperature and shock specifications identical to its 8GB predecessor – and despite its doubled capacity, no reduction in the previous 20MB/second data transfer speed.”
