Mechanically: Both the SD Card and the adapter is very tightly built are advertised to be X-Ray Proof, water resistant, and shock proof.  Kingston built a very durable card for this speed card considering the ways it can be used out in reality.

Overall the Kingston SDCG 64GB has stayed within specs of the cards advertised performance and great for camera’s adapted for this format and speed.

The Fill’er up Test.  Which is transferring 52.5 GB of media files to the disk from my desktop and timing how long it takes to transfer that 52.5 GB to the Kingston SDCG/64GB via Card reader plugged into a USB 3.0 connection. At full transfer speed from desktop to the Kingston SDCG/64GB it took this card 34 minutes and 7 Seconds to transfer that 52.5GB file of media.
