Wonder what the prices will be..
B&H and couple of retailers have listed these cards on their site for quite some time now. Pricing is similar to Sandisk Ultra series of cards not too expensive.

B&H I am sure the price goes up as the write speeds go up
Kingston React $
Min write speed quoted is 10MBps while Sandisk Extreme has advertised minimum speed of 30MBps(V30 rating) so at best these Kingston cards are competing with Sandisk Ultra series of cards.

@Chaitanya there are 3 series of cards go select and react and react being the fastest go is on par with Ultra. You quoted 10mbs for the select series, click thru and read the specs on all cards
edit Sandisc according to this the kingston react cards are faster

edit 2 Sandisc Extreme Pro cards are just a little bit faster but much more expensive

There was a reason why I didnt mention Extreme Pro(Uhs-I and Uhs-II) or Plus from Sandisk, both those cards are significantly faster and expensive. Kingston seems to be just going for value market instead of targetting performance.

Actually they have hit both with the react series of cards and the others are close in their respective markets. 90mbs vs 100mbs, react vs pro models. Price point and performance, who will notice the 10 lost?

In the last few years i have only had bad experiences with kingston external memories, low performance for high price. I am not buying them anymore unless i see benchmarks.
