Summary: If speed is your priority you might want to go ahead and obtain a Sony Mark II or higher. I'm relegating the Lexar to audio duties in a Sony PCM D-50 and we'll see how that goes.
Pros: Fits in the Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo slot and does read/write.
Cons: I have Sony Memory Stick Pro Mark II and thought I'd save a couple bucks, but in both my HC-7 and HC-9 cameras, this Lexar takes literally three times longer to write .jpg files than the Sony Mark II.

Summary: Sony's duo pro memory cards are finally coming down in price (though still above comparable SD cards). Others have reported some problems with using NON-Sony duo pro, but I had NO such problem with this Lexar memory stick.
Summary: Doesn't bear the Sony name, but don't let that deter you, as this Lexar is fast, and pretty cheap compared to the Sony's or even the Sandisks. Includes full sized adapter so you can use it in your older cameras, etc. There is really no reason to buy the full sized sticks anymore.
Pros: Fast speeds, includes full sized adapter for all your older gadgets.
Summary: Purchased this little card for my new Sony T9 camera. At 6MP Resolution, it holds close to 300 pictures, which is amazing. It's perfect for long trips where you may not have access to a computer for downloading images.
Summary: Works fast and without any problems. Comes with the adapter, which allows you to use this card in regular sized memory slots. It's also backed by a lifetime warranty by Lexar, although it only applies towards the original buyer.
