"Our 16GB Class 6 Micro-SDHC memory cards will transfer data faster than most other memory cards available. If you often transfer large files on your phone such as video or HD video files then you probably have to wait a long time for the memory card to process the data. With a high speed memory card that transfer time can be substantically reduced.

Our 16GB Class 6 Micro-SD card has a read speed of over 9mb/s and a write speed of more than 13mb/s (tested using h2testw software) making them one of the fastest micro-sd cards available.

We are supplying these high speed micro-sd cards with a 5 year warranty.

The Low Price Memory card is supplied in a plastic case with no other retail packaging."
This has been posted before, but with the ever increasing number of people using smart phones and the fact they're generally supplied with low class, small sized MicroSD cards I thought it was worthwhile posting this.
A post by "nerner" in the old, now expired, deal sheds light as to it's claims of being class 6:
(Class 6 = 6MB/s transfer rate)
(S)he posted "Just tried a 2GB File test.
Tests may vary on different hardware. I'm using a Unibody MacBook Pro (Mid 09 / SD Slot)

AJA System Test (Mac) DiskWhackTest (Disable file system cache)

Average Write: 5.9 MB/s / Read: 13.9 MB/s
Max Write: 9.3 MB/s / Read: 15.5 MB/s"
Which is just as the device claims, albeit 0.1MB/s off (which is nothing, and is to be expected to have variations either way)
This is my first post, so please be kind! Free delivery 2-4 working days (I don't know about Quidco?)
Will be using this in my HTC Desire I recently got, most, if not all, modern phones will support 16GB but please check with the manufactures web page for support. (Most HTC's do)

Am I missing something here, this looks an excellent deal for a class 6.
#2
The only "issue" would be the fact it is not from a better known brand, though, as posted in the now expired post, the speeds it states are infact true. I see no reason as to not buy this purely because it is not from a more 'reputable' company - the speeds, and reviews, appear very positive.
This is a very good purchase if you have / are about to buy a device that would benefit from a large storage card (phone, camera, etc)

I have just had one of the 7dayshop toshiba class 4 cards, I would have preferred on of these though.

I think people vote without looking at the class.
#4
Maybe, the toshiba is a more reputable 'trusted' brand, and so it does appeal more to people. The reason I didn't buy it is simply because I wanted the speeds of class 6, and the price difference wasn't drastic.
On any phone capable of recording video, especially when recording in high definition (720p+), a higher card speed is much more beneficial. The phone I have allows for DATA2EXT, ie, running apps/games off the SD card, which means games/apps will load & perform much better with a higher class speed. Of course, class 4 would still work, and likely fine.

looks good, need comparisons to the 16quid class 2/4s though to make proper decision

Here you go:

This Toshiba one here is £16.49 --- £3.50 cheaper for a class 4 card.
This Kingston one here is £21.89 ---- £2.00 more expensive and only class 4 again. (This is a more 'recognised brand'.
This one here from Play.com is only £15.49, though it says class 4, comments suggest otherwise. £4 cheaper.

Wikipedia:
"Class 0 cards do not specify performance, which includes all legacy cards prior to class specifications.
Class 2, 2 MB/s, slowest for SDHC cards. <-- not recommended, too slow, though adequate for some devices/uses.
Class 4, 4 MB/s. <-- cheaper by roughyly ~ £3 though possibly lacking sufficient speed for some uses /devices.
Class 6, 6 MB/s. <-- sufficient for more demanding purposes, and due to the minimal price difference, highly recommended.
Class 10, 10 MB/s." <--- harder to get hold of, and generally a fair whack more expensive.

by comparisons i dont mean a calculation of price difference and funnily enough i can do that either in my head or by those new fangled calculator thingies.
i mean a proper performance comparison...stating class isn't a performance comparison in any way.
