Do you need a class 6? Play.com have a class 4 which claims to have these specs:

Sustained write speed: 8 Mb/s
Sustained read speed: 20 Mb/s (133x)

Thank you for the link.

Funny that Class 4 would be faster than Class 6! Yet, if their description is correct it's a very very good deal. Hot!

Class 6 is the quickest rating. This is an excellent price for 16GB Class 6. Just ordered one. Thanks a lot webze.

Just proves how the original "spec" figures were misleading, to coin a phrase with a following wind ;-)

I'm glad they brought out the new classifications and agreed on the standard, this is a good proce for a 16Gig, all I need now is the SD200 Panasonic to put it in (only really need class 4 though at the mo for HD recording):santa:.

Panasonic and others have class 10 speed cards now.

Bargain but post and packing is a rip off.

Thanks for the heads up. Have just ordered 2 of them. According to customer feedback they can handle HD recording flawlesly and also work on a Panasonic TZ7 which is what I want them for. :thumbsup:

The Play one says 4 hours HD but my Hd camcorder on best quality will only get 2 hours out of a 16gb card,I think there basing there HD on 1080x720 not the newer full hd of 1920x1080,Probably class 4 is fine for 1080x720 but maybe not for the full HD.
#9
btw, for others that didn't know - the HTC HD2 uses Micro - SD cards (not normal full size SD cards - http://www.htc.com/uk/product/hd2/specification.html)

off topic, but I've got the HTC HD first one - whats the HD2 like compared with the HD? Worth the upgrade?
#10
I bought one of these to use with my new Nikon D5000. Certainly way faster that my older SD cards, so I'm impressed so far!

I'm no expert but if my understanding from the reading I've done over the last few weeks looking at the canon hf200 and panasonic sd200 it's more to do with what bitrate is used, the canon can recorde upto 24mbps while the panasonic is 17mbps. I think the figure that is given on play is for 9mbps(well the sandisk video hd ultra ii sd cards give it for 9mbps from what I gathered reading the 'fine print').

I was looking at getting the canon hf200 from play while they had it for £400 but kept putting it off while I was deciding between it and the panasonic sd200(would love the hs/tm300 but it's quite a bit more expensive and I'm a novice who wouldn't be using a high % of the features).

had kind of settled on the pny 16gb card but was wondering if the sandisk ones were worth double the price.

class 10 now :thumbsup:


[SIZE="2"]Actually I think this is the biggest and fastest SD card at 32 gigs and Class 50 :thumbsup: :?

[COLOR="Blue"]On March 6, 2009, Pretec introduced the world's first SDXC card with a capacity of 32 GB and a read/write speed of 50 MByte/s. [/COLOR]

The main trouble is that I don't think there are any products with the required SDXC slot.:whistling:

Info about SDHC cards:

http://www.wisegeek.com/what-are-sdhc-cards.htm

* Class 2: minimum sustained DTS of 2MB/sec
* Class 4: minimum sustained DTS of 4MB/sec
* Class 6: minimum sustained DTS of 6MB/sec

SDHC cards are classified to guarantee a specific sustained DTS. This potentially saves consumers money, as flash cards are priced not only according to capacity, but also to speed. For example, if a product's maximum DTS is 2MB/sec, dishing out extra cash for Class 4 or Class 6 SDHC cards would be a waste of money. Conversely, devices that can utilize the 4MB/sec or 6MB/sec DTR will perform significantly better with Class 4 or Class 6 SDHC cards, respectively.

I have HD2, is Micro SDHC so this card wont fit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is probably not worth upgrading to be honest! No stylus, no direct access to PocketPC OS but lotsd of tweaks and apps to get this sorted. Is good but eats battery!!!!!

Why not save some cash, the credit crunch is not over yet, and get the t-mobile pulse, which is a great little phone, and android is much better than WM6.1/5

I use this with a Samsung WB500 for HD Video Recording and it doesn't miss a beat - works like a charm.

Any good with PSP?

Yeah, unfortunately Class isn't the whole story as it's just write speed 'bars' that cards have to surpass so a Class 2 card could be faster than a Class 4 or even a Class 6, albeit unlikely - depends what's inside the card. As someone else said the idea was if your device writes slower than 2MB/sec then you only need to buy a Class 2 potentially saving you money; slower than 4MB/sec buy a Class 4, slower than 6MB/sec buy Class 6. But there's not a huge difference in price between Classes so I guess most people will buy Class 6 anyway as more likely to be useful if they upgrade their camera etc.

If your device writes faster than 6MB/sec it may be worth reading SD card reviews/tests/comparisons etc.

Class 10 is not official (yet.)

Hi,

I want to apologise about the confusion I've seemed to have generated. This card is indeed a normal full size SD card, not a Micro - SD card; therefore, it won't be any good for the HTC HD2 (my mistake - and I've learned the hard way, as I bought the card but can't use it on the mobile...).
I've edited the description and tags, hope it will be clear from now on.

Happy New Year everyone :)

I can't find it either :?

Might just buy an 8GB Sandisk from the same site, don't think I need a 16GB anyway.

Cheers for posting OP :thumbsup:

Did anybody else buy one of these Verbatum Class 6 cards from Base. I have only just put mine in my camcorder and it is reporting it as only a class 4 although it appeared to be sealed in a genuine Verbatim pack. My other cards report correctly as class 6. Before taking the matter further with Base i would be interested to here from others.
