What SD brands do you usually buy? Are the Sandisk Extreme range any good?

Sandisk, Lexar, Prograde. Depends on the application.

My raspberry pi doesn't do many disk operations so the speed isn't critical and 90 MB/s is plenty. My digital camera, on the other hand, has dual SD card slots, and can record uncompressed(!) 10 bit 4k video @ 60fps but needs 2 x 400 MB/s continuous write, which is... a pretty specific need. And cost accordingly.

I find Samsung much more reliable than Sandisk in my pis
