Bargain price for top branded card,
This review is from: Sandisk 8GB Secure Digital Card [PC] (Personal Computers)
Just how cheap can this memory get ?
I am using this card in my Kodak Z1015 HD video capable digicam, the card is fast enough to cope with HD video to be continuously streamed to the card, I recently shot a continuous 29 min video with no problems whatever (8GB would have given me much longer)...it seems just great
This card is classified as a "class 4", which means that it must have a minimum write speed of 4 megabytes per second, this seems fast enough for my purposes, other cards are classified at class 6 (6 mb/s min), so its not the fastest, but it seems fine for video
Just a note though....make sure that the device that you plan to use this card with is SD HC compatible as some older devices wont recognise this card
I am sure that memory will get even cheaper, but this seems like a great price to me, high street retailers often charge three or four times this price...Sandisk is a well known brand name too...great value

can you tell me if this card is useable in a laptop? or is it just for cameras?

I use mine to load and unload photos from my Camera straight into the SD card slot on my laptop. I'm not techno minded but I have no problems using it

you have to be careful, SD and SDHC are to totally different formats dispite the cards looking identical . both are just memory cards, but if your device can only handle SD, the SDHC wont work. if you device can handle SDHC it will probably be ok with SD too. as far as your pc goes if you have a USB slot adapters are easily available and often cost less than £1, some are even given free when you buy the SDHC card.

I use it (8GB SDHC) on my Laptop (1 year old), PC (8 years old) PS3 and Digital Frame without any problems. A bargain.

Very good to know , I was totally unaware of the different ratings of cards ( 2 4 6 ) thanks, saved me a major headache also didn't realize the SD SDHC difference...another couple paracetamol staying in the bottle,
seriously, thanks for taking the time to write your review.

*deleted*. It seems these reviews are for multiple products (different sizes and classes of SanDisk SDHC cards).

I have used a micro SDHC (8GB) in my laptop's built-in card reader via an SD adaptor (whereby the much smaller micro card slots into the SD card.) My 3 year old mid-range laptop running Vista recognises the full 8GB.

When I wrote this review, the card was a class 2, I now note that it has been changed for a class 4....so now even better value VBB

You have written "megabites" in your review. I think this could easily confuse people who don't know the difference between BITs and BYTEs. I don't know if it's a typo or mistake but you could be leading people astray with this review.
If you don't want to look it up on the internet then basically a byte is 8 bits.
