SD Memory Card Choices Confusing

Hi, Not sure if this is the correct subform or if this topic has been covered before (quick search didm;t come up with much)

I need some new SD Cards for my Cameras. I'm looking at probably 16 or 32GB Class 10 UHS cards.

When comparing Sandisk memory cards between sites i get totally confussed.

What I can find online and in store locally - totally contradicts from websites to website and even the official Sandisk site. What I mean is the label, colour of the label and description;

For example at my local camera / chain stores around town I can buy;

Black coloured extreme  at 85mb/s 32gb size and 40mb/s for the 16gb

Gold Coloured  Extreme pro - one with 45mb and one with 95mb/s (from different stores) depending on the size of the card.

Gold Coloured Extreme Plus 80mb/s

Black and Gold coloured extreme pro with 280mb/s

(prices vary so greatly that the slower cards are often more expensive)

Looking at the sandisk website - some of the cards in the stores and online don't even match those from the official website. Then if I try and compare to other reputable brands they state their speed in times (200x) so I can't directly compare what I'm buying.
