Default SD HC or XD cards

I recently received a Verbatim SDXD card as a gift. I have been using the SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-I Memory Card 32GB until now and have been happy with it.
I tried the new SDXC card and it seems to be faster than the ScanDisk however its a fraction of the price.
What is your opinion on this?

I think on each choice you should evaluate the price / performance ratio and the level of compatibility with your camera.

Hi alessandro
As mentioned where I am the price of the SD HC is very high, the SD XC is about half and seem to give double the performance. Asked about it at the shop and the person said demand for XD cards are low, as there is not a lot of cameras in circulation that can use them. Do you know what the advantages/disadvantages would be HC vs XC?
