All the SLTs are capable of writing upto 45mbps but only A77 & A99 can write at UHS-1 speed. Sony says the A57 cannot write at USH-1 but it will work as a 45mbps card, source here

I think it is actually saying that all SLTs can write up to 10mbps (Class 10), but only the A77 & A99 get any additional benefit from the "UHS-1" cards that are 45mbps or 90mbps.

In other words, if you have an A3x, A5x, or A6x, there's no point spending more money to get a UHS-1 memory card or anything faster than Class 10.
