Some are branded some are not. It's like comparing proton with toyota. They are different in price and speed mainly.

U have to compare price and the speed (How many times & what chip are using i.e: SLC or MLC) of the card..I like Trancend very much compare to other cards in same range,they are much faster a bit, my all of gears are using trancend high speed card,its served me well. Just my 2cent.

IMHO just go for sandisk...its fast and reliable and compatible

lexar has issues at times with windows, they'll randomly tell u the card isn't formatted..ionly had this prob with lexar (and one time with kingston)..

most brands will tell u its 50x or 133x or 1982371098471924x but it seems the same as a normal card..like the A-Data 133x its rubbish
