In my experience they've proved a lot more reliable.

No he is right they did show at £7.99 . The site has just been changed back again. Problem on play the link add to basket charged 7.99. A search showed 7.99, yet when you added them from the search it went in at 5.99.

The Play.com ones are Toshiba's hardly what I'd call an unreliable brand, never had one let me down yet. ;-)

Methos.

I bought these a couple of months ago - worth checking if you do buy, as one of mine was actually a 1GB card....:roll:

I got these last week and they are fantastic for the price. They are Toshiba made and are very reliable.

All depends on what you are going to use them for. IMHO for taking pictures I would get the ones for 7.99. Clearly SanDisk alone with crucial are the experts in this field. Toshiba are like Jack of all trades, master of none.

Just bought several Toshiba 2Gb from 7 Day Shop for £2.99 each post free (think I had to buy 3 or 4 min to get that price).

There's no doubt these are a good buy but that price is no longer exceptional from web retailers (though DSG probably still want an arm and a leg for them and presumably some people fall for it).

Even if they are 'bought in' and rebranded Toshiba I think it's fair to assume that Toshiba wouldn't risk their good name on rubbish. Mine have always been fine.

Re SDHC: even if your device takes them your reader may not so beware - it can be inconvenient though a £1 reader from Poundland solves problem; but do you really want 4Gb+ of your precious files (eg pics) on one card? More difficult to manage and even more of a problem if lost - just a thought. I have 4Gb and 8Gb SDHC cards but for these reasons have reverted to 2Gb SD. And now they're so cheap you can afford to treat them as film and keep as backup rather than wiping them.

Has anyone really ever had a problem with SD cards? If so that further supports the argument for not going too large.

I've never had any problems with SD cards (so far touch wood) but know a few folks who have ended up with corrupt data, but not necassarily caused by the card itself.

Like you I would highly advise against "filling up" 4gb, 8gb or bigger capacity worth of precious pics all your eggs in one basket is a risky thing!

I use my cards in a kind of "session" order switching to another after each, they're so cheap as you said its madness to put everything on one card.

Methos.

I didn't say they produce **** media, I merely said I believe the Sandisk ones are more reliable.
In the middle of a wedding my Toshiba 4gb let me down and has malfunctioned a number of times since which is why I now only use Sandisk and my Toshiba is now in the bin.
Sometimes it's not worth the risk, especially for the sake of £2.

I prefer larger capacity cards in case I need the capacity for one large session. It would be too much of a hassle to swap mid-session (plus, there is the added risk of dropping it, misplacing it etc.). Madness to me would be to not backing up the cards to one or even two storage devices after every session. Having said that, those 2GB cards are good buys for the Wii since it only accepts standard SD card.

As for the SanDisk vs Toshiba. I am going to go ahead and say 'risk, what risk?'. There are going to be failing Toshiba cards, just as there are going to be failing SanDisk cards. I can understand why having a storage drive fail can leave a sour taste, but it doesn't mean very much when it comes to determining the reliability of each card. Ironically, SanDisk and Toshiba are actually working a lot closer than some of you may realise: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/10/20/toshiba_buys_some_jv_fab_capacity/

Yeah, for all you know, those cards came from the same factory. Still, amazing how important branding is in business. Wouldn't surprise me at all if elsewhere in the world, people views Toshiba as the more reliable brand and SanDisk as a second class manufacturer.
