Transcend’s SDHC card is based on the new generation of SD cards (SD 2.0) that support the FAT32 file system format. Fully Class 6 compliant, the card features fast data transfer speeds (guaranteed minimum write speed of 6MB/s) and satisfies the high-capacity demands of today’s new SDHC devices such as high-end digital cameras or digital camcorders. You can store your entire music or picture collections, video clips, or even complete full-length high quality movies.
Transcend’s SDHC card also includes special features such as a mechanical write protection switch that keeps your important data safe from accidental deletion or over-writing. Transcend’s SDHC Class 6 series features ECC (Error Correcting Code) to automatically detect and correct errors during data transfer, preventing data corruption and missing files. Transcends manufactures all of its SDHC cards using brand name NAND Flash chips and premium quality components to ensure robust, long-life durability and performance. For further peace of mind, all SDHC cards are comprehensively tested for compatibility and reliability, and carry Transcend’s renowned Lifetime Warranty

I was recording a stunning rainbow when my first one kept running out of space. Each time I frantically deleted a video - I knew they were backed up but I'm a belt and braces person so was loath to delete en masse - to gain space but each time never enough; I swore that wouldn't happen again. (It's usually my battery that dies on me at crucial moments and I still need to buy a second one of those!)
As I was going on a short holiday anyway this was my obvious choice. I have several Transcend data storage devices and none have ever let me down (I hope I'm not tempting providence!) over many years. This was no exception and I have a lovely (subjective, of course) set of movies and photos, many of which I've uploaded to my YouTube channel.
As I said in my review for the first card and reader there is no delay when I record videos - this time I recorded them all in HD with absolutely no problems.
You should bear a couple of things in mind prior to bouying this card. You need a card reader that can read SDHC cards if you're going to use it as a separate memory back-up (if you try to force the card into a standard SD slot, you'll damage the card). Alternatively if you can, connect your device to a computer via USB/Firewire. Then there's the issue of compatibility - please check with the manufacturer who makes your camera/device if the card will work with your device.

represents excellent value for money. bought for my Canon EOS 1000D. However, its fine for MOST new SD & SDHC Compatible digital cameras made in 2007 and AFTER.
Transcend are market leaders in high quality SDHC Memory cards. 5 Stars.!
lifetime warranty - Great SDHC CARD for: Pentax K200D, K20D, Canon 450D, 1000D, Nikon D90, D80, D60, D40X, D40,
Im very impressed with how well the card is made, pure quality.!
Update: I have today (04/12/10) received a replacement card from the manufacturer which means they have, belatedly, honored the promise they made in August.
The card came without a little plastic case. This may sound trivial, but I intend to keep the pictures on the card indefinitely, using the card as the ultimate backup store. A case is necessary for this. It protects the card from damage and dirt. Also, putting a label on the card (for example, to say what dates the pictures on it are from) will stop it from going into most card readers - it it certainly won't go into my camera with a label.
So Transcend, nice card for a good price but it needs a 10p (at most) case, and until you do that, I'll have to buy someone else's cards.
A good, reasonably quick card but not perfect.
Cards have never been cheaper, faster or more secure, and this class 6 Transcend, with its little safety switch, is the deal of the moment. In fact you can buy three 16 gb cards for the price of one 32 gb card, so proving my theory.
The only downside is its size. Its just so tiny that you could easily lose thousands of photos, hours of music or whole weddings shot in hi-def should it disappear behind the sofa.
