Was about to pull the trigger but the specs on Adorama say 10 MB/s write speed (30 MB/s read). Kind of a bummer for a UHS-I card. Can anyone confirm those speeds?

I thought that was what class 10 meant. Minimum of 10mb/s write speed.

SD classes are pretty fluid anyway (many SanDisk class 10 cards write at ~20MB/s). SanDisk must be feeling pressure to conform to other mfgs who stretch their performance ratings to near exaggeration.

I bought one from Amazon a couple of days ago, with standard shipping (even though I have Prime... Amazon lures you to choose slower shipping by giving you some freebie, They gave me $1 VOD credit). Well, today I went shopping to Costco and found the micrSD version for $15.99 (SDSDQU-032G-AC11A). I ended cancelling my yet unshipped order from Amazon and got instant gratification at Costco.
Someone earlier asking about transfer and read/write speeds. I was looking for a microSD card to use with the deal from Gander Mtn on the GoPro Hero3. I read in a GPH3 forum on DPReview, that the speed is plenty with 30MB/sec for the performance of the camera. Please note the subtleties between "Mb" and "MB" Comments from the forum:
===== By Francis Carver (3 weeks ago) You maybe talking about 95MB/sec capability with the SanDisk MicroSD cards, which would come to about 760Mb/second. And that should plenty good cover the 45Mb/sec recording codec's data flow requirements, since 760Mb/sec is way north of what you would really need w. the Hero3 Black Edition using the highest resolution and quality: 45Mb/second.
And even the SanDisk Ultra edition cards provide 30Mb/sec = 240Mbit/sec, once again plenty fast when your recording bitrate in the camera is only 45Mbit/sec. =====
My take on those comments is that if read speed for the Ultra cards is 30MB/s (240Mbit/s), then the 10MB/s (80Mbit/s) writing spec is still satisfying the requirement of the GPH3 (45 Mbit/s). Check your camera Mbit/s recording requirements. You can always go with the Sandisk Extreme version for a whole lot more mulla, if you want to be on the safe side.
By the way, the product packaging has the following notes: Up to 30 MB/s read speed, write speed slower. Based on Sandisk internal testing; performance may be lower depending on host device. Full HD video (1920x1080) and 3D video support may vary. See http://www.sandisk.com/HD
