Get More Out of your Mobile World

In capacities ranging from 4 - 128 GB*, microSDHC/SDXC cards offer higher storage for more music, more videos, more pictures, more games - more of everything you need in today’s mobile world.

The microSDHC and microSDXC cards allow you to make the most out of mobile devices. Kingston’s microSDHC/SDXC cards use a speed class rating that guarantees a minimum data transfer rate for optimum performance with devices that use microSDHC/SDXC.

To ensure compatibility, look for the microSDHC, microSDXC or SDHC/SDXC logos on host devices (e.g. phones, tablets and cameras).

* Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and is thus not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston’s Flash Guide at kingston.com/flashguide.

Before getting to the actual memory card, I'd first like to mention two things I like:

1. It comes with the MicroSD adapter - something I find very useful.
MicroSD is almost *the* standard for mobile phones (with even stubborn manufacturers like Sony Ericsson slowly ditching their proprietary formats in favor of this) but the problem is, a lot of larger products (like cameras and laptops for instance) take only the standard SD card.
Here, it is advantageous to have the adapter because all you have to do is plug the card in your adapter and you're ready to transfer your pix/files from your phone to your laptop and vice versa.

2. The packaging won't injure you.
Quite frankly, I'm sick and tired of those horrible plastic-clamshell packaging which takes a knife and two steady hands to cut open; fortunately, this card ships in a neat cardboard cover which surrounds a re-sealable plastic 'case' that can also double as a storage case in case you need it (although wasn't probably intended for that purpose).

Getting to the actual card, I found the card reasonably fast with okay read and write speeds; this is most likely attributed to the "Class 4" speeds it carries, but to be honest I'm not too sure what that means for the average joe (who's probably only going to use this on their phone or whatever)

The only (small) complaint I have is that its a tad bit difficult to pull the memory card out of the adapter, but then that's hardly a complaint considering the performance and the price, so I gladly give this five stars.

There are far too many fakes about and its essential you test your card on receipt, some fakes will pass some of the test programmes, so test with ChkFlsh, Crystal Disk Mark & especially H2testW. H2testW tests the full capacity of the card, so will catch any using aliasing to fake larger than real capacity. A card with full capacity but high error rate/slow write speed indicates a 'ghost run' fake.

I`ve added images to the product gallery to assist in visually identifying genuine & fake cards.

Good results:
A 32GB card should have a formatted capacity of around 30GB, format in FAT/FAT32 only (NTFS shortens life of flash media & wont improve performance)
A class 4 card must have a write speed of 4MB/s minimum (large files) the first result in Crystal Disk Mark should indicate that.
Read speeds should be over 12MB/s.

I bought three SanDisk equivalents and then bought three of these. Don't bother with SanDisk, these are twice the speed for the same money.

Kingston 8GB Micro SD HC - Class 4

Bought this item and the memory works well in the phone. But the adapter doesn't work; it's useless. I contacted the company customer service, but they are useless, too.It seems to me they didn't understand what the problem is. There are 2 items in the pack: the memory card itself and the adapter.You can put the memory card in the phone and use it, no problems, but if you want to store data (e g music) on the card you better use the adapter and plug it in your laptop slot.But, surprize! The adapter doesn't work! I only managed to store data on the memory via USB cable conected to the phone (sluggish!).

I purchased 2 of these Kingston cards in December 2012 via Amazon. Used them in Android phones for wifey and me. All went well for about 5 months then first 1 card, then a couple of weeks later the 2nd went unreadable. The cards had been mounted in the phones throughout with only normal use. They had never been extracted. When they went u/s I tried them out on desktop and laptop computers to re-format but they were not recognised. Not sure if it was a batch fault or what. The good thing was that Kingston have their warranty department in the UK. I filled in a form by email and got an RMA number with no quibbling. I sent the u/s cards back to Kingston on Friday and received 2 brand new replacement cards through the post 3 working days later! So far both cards are working fine. Kingston are a very reliable supplier. But I am not sure about the life of their micro SD cards. Time will tell. As it happens we did not have any vital data on our cards, but I will make backups of anything important from the micro SD cards in future.

Cautious to find the fastest, biggest microSD for reasonable money, this Class 4 Kingston chip is brilliant value for money and works superbly in my HTC Desire. Adapter was sent for the larger format SD also which was a bonus. And still not seen anything for better value since!

Ive just purchased this card due to all the hype its been given and some of the reviews indicating that you can transfer 10.8gb of data to it in 27m 59s and another guy that mentioned a read speed of 15 MB/s and write speed of 5-6 MB/s.

In reality the speeds are garbage. It took me almost 2 hours to transfer just short of 16gb of mixed size data, ranging from a few kb to a few hundred MB using a high speed memory card reader plugged into a USB 2.0 compatible port...it took the same time as having the card plugged into the phone, acting as a glorified card reader. The card was formatted with a cluster size of 32k and actual formatted size was 14.8gb

With all the benchmarking tools ive used it also gets awful marks when compared to my previous Duracell class 2, 16gb micro sdhc card. The Duracell branded one is an unsung hero. I can get write speeds of 6mb/s and read speeds of 15mb/s with that.

Using the "AnTutu System Review" app it shows a SD Card Write speed of 2.6 to 3.6MB/S and SD Card Read Speed of 8.9 to 9.1 MB/s, with the CPU running at 998mhz. Nothing is reading or writing to the card when im running the tests, its performance is unfortunately garbage. I get even poorer results when im running the CPU slightly underclocked at 844mhz, which isnt exactly slow for a mobile phone ffs. This didnt used to be an issue at all with my Panasonic card. My Panasonic card used to get a result of 13 MB/s read speed and 6 MB/s write speed, not too shabby to say that its only a class 2 card...

Using the "SD Card Speed Test" app (also known as just "Sst") it gets the following results:

Files of 1MB in size - Write Speed - 3MB/s and Reading Speed 8MB/s, measures as a class 2 card.
