This is gonna be hot!

Question is which one is the actual 'Real World Fastest' between this and the class 2 Sandisk?
#3
Class 2 = way too slow!
#4
Wow, crazy cheap!

For doing what exactly?

I transferred roughly 2GB of images from a class 2 4GB micro-sd the other day and it was done within a minute. That was while browsing the web AND listening to music.

So what if a Class 'X' is 50% faster? Some people like me aren't in that much of a rush to save precious seconds transferring files.

I misplaced my wallet the other day. I spent the best part of 20 minutes looking all over the house for it. Does this mean I have to go down the road of buying one of those chains you see hanging from emo's trousers so I don't lose it again, and waste another 20 mins? Of course not.

On topic: Very good deal, and I wish I'd waited a little more now. The 4GB card I purchased last month was on offer for around £7 and I thought that was good. Thumbs up from me.

The class of a card indicates a minimum, not a maximum transfer speed too. It's totally possible for a class 2 card to consistently transfer faster than a class 4 card, for example.
#8
The speed does matter when you're reading data from the card. If you're watching a video and it can't read it fast enough for example, it'll start to skip.

Yeah you know that the class thing isn't an ISO standard with manufacturers claims largely a load of pap?
#10
Does anyone know if this card can be used for recording 720p video on the HTC Desire? The ability has only just come out in the Android 2.2 update and there doesn't appear to be a great deal of information out there.

Hot price, but isn't this just taking the current hot post of the day, reading it and taking one of the links posted as a comment as your own deal?
I don't really care, as you've highlighted the price, but surely Kudos to

Not quite, if a card did consistently write faster than a Class 4 card it means the card can maintain a minimum write speed of at least 4MB/s, if it did the manufacturer will certainly advertise the card as Class 4, and not Class 2 as it can sustain a minimum speed of 4MB/s. ;)

The SD Class 2/4/6+ specs are minimum read/write speeds, not maximum.

Dont forget Quidco for a whopping 1% cashback. Every little helps......

A quick google search for reviews on toshiba micro SDHC cards show this to be a remarkably slow card. I found this the yesterday (before originally posted in the sandisk thread) and did some checking then bought the Sandisk.

not compatible with standard microSD-enabled device/readers

what does that mean - does one need a non-standard reader to use this?
can i use this in my nokia xpress music phone (currently has only 8gb)

It means it only works in microSDHC devices not microSD devices a lot are still different.
Micro SD or SD can only accept upto 2Gb when Micro SDHC or SDHC can accept over 2Gb
#17
Fed up waiting for the 32gb's to come down in price so this'll do me just fine for now :-)
#18
wow these just keep getting cheaper and cheaper. fantastic price
#19
Same question for recording HD video :) If it's quick enough to do a straight recording using the Galaxy S I'll buy it now.

ordered something the other week from 7dayshop, thenabout a week later had e mail saying the item was no longer available, then another e mail and about 200 more! over the course of the week, what the hell's going on there? i had to block them in the end.
#21
Don't suppose anyone's seen a good price for a 16GB or 32GB Class 6 (or even 10) card have they...? Doesn't have to be micro necessarily. Thank you! (Hot BTW!)
#22
All this talk of classes and you seem to have missed that this isn't even a Class 2. So it probably can't meet the spec of 2MB/s sustained write speed. I've had unrated cards like this that write at about 900kB/s. And of course they can be even slower if writing a lot of small files.

Whether that's a problem depends on how you use it. If you progressively add small files and use it as read-mostly it will probably be adequate. If you use it as a temporary store to transfer large multi-gigabyte wedges of data the lack of write speed could be incredibly frustrating. I personally wouldn't have a card like this for free.

I will go for sandisk rather than this card, read description carefully: Please note: You may receive a card that differs from the image shown: they may have no sticker and be 'bulk' packed (no horrible plastic packaging!) but they will come with a protective jewel case and are 100% Toshiba OR Samsung guaranteed!
don't trust it at all

Arghh the exact same thing happened to me. Bought an R4 card, they emailed to say there were none in stock and then they emailed the same thing nearly 300 times over the weekend! I wrote them 4 shouting emails entirely in capital letters. Although to be honest I should have emailed them every 15 minutes with the same thing for 4 days like they did to me. They've stop now which is a huge relief. Nice to know I wasn't the only one!

What class is this, though ?
See no mention anywhere.

Absolutely. Although they do say it WILL be a Toshiba/Samsung. Whats the minimum it can be ? A Class 2 is the minimum anyways.
Easy way to tell - put in your phone, if it doesn't work, it isn't what they say it is, and return.

HTC desire HD video is 16 FPS or something - WTF - jerk vision
#28
Well I bought both this and the Sandisk. And I am not getting ANY emails from 7day. And there is no dispatch date on the Sandisk, so I've asked to cancel. I'll look elsewhere for a class6 for my Pixon 12
#29
Some people are missing the point when it comes to class speed. It's not that you can transfer files to and from your computer at speeds that are fine, it's that people use these cards on new technology such as HD cameras (HD even on phones like mine) which require the ability to transfer at fast speeds.

If your hardware is fast yet your card is slow, it's going to cause issues because the hardware is going to end up getting bottle necked. Even a digital camera will respond slower while it transfers the image onto the card.

If you're looking to use HD cams or other tech that requires writing large files, I'd stick with Class 4 AT LEAST. Class 6 ideally.
#30
Why does the description on 7dayshop talks about Dane-Elecs microSDHC then say that you will receive either a Toshiba or a Samsung... 7dayshop certainly are not very good at making themselves look like a professional company that is worth the time and effort to do business with :-(
#31
These Toshiba cards are exactly the same as Kingston/Integral/PNY. I got 2 of these and the write speed through my card reader is 6.5mb/s. Write speed when inside my htc desire is around 4..5mb/s

This is true, especially when using in a camera. I use at least class 4 so the write speeds are good enough.

would that suggest the desire is bottle necking the speed?

That 'hottest deal of the day' came from someone elses post inside another thread just the same as this one - often the way on here.

consistently does not mean always so he is indeed correct.
if a class 4 writes at between 4 and 5 then its class 4
if a class 2 writes at between 2 and 10 then its a class 2 but the class 2 can be consistently writing faster than the class 4
eg sandisk usually have good average transfer rates making them good for storage but as they are only class 2 then you may get 2Mb/s at times which may or may not cause problems where consistency is required eg recording

Of course it can, the HTC Desire records at 720p at 21-22fps. There's no way its going to be recording at anything over 7-8mbit a second (chances are a lot less). 8mbit is about 1MB...

Even a class 2 will easily handle it without a doubt.

i purchased a 16GB class 2 microSD card a few days ago, put a 20 min show on it and it played fine with no skipping or other problems

i'm not saying this will happen with all of them but this was my experience, not just what i think could happen
#37
hmm will order, lets hope it doesn't go out of stock and take 6 weeks or so like the last cable I ordered :-P

Okay, well I'm not impressed. They've sent me a completely generic card. It doesn't say Toshiba anywhere on it. I know a lot of people are going to call me an idiot and say things like 'they're all made in the same factory, the branding just gets put on later, durrrrrrr', but that's not the point.

I bought a Toshiba memory card because I don't want to worry about my data being corrupted. I could have got the play.com card for the same price, but a lot of the reviews for play-branded memory cards are not positive. If I'd known they were going to send me some no-brand memory card instead, I wouldn't have bought it in the first place.

So what should I do? If I'd paid by credit card, I could just do a chargeback, but my credit card hasn't been set up properly for SecureCode or whatever and since 7dayshop deals are always being posted on here so I thought it was safe to use my debit card.

How are their customer services? Do I just have to shut up and accept the no-brand, potentially unreliable, memory card? I don't want it to be a case of me having to send back the memory card at my own expense and then hoping that they'll decide to give me a refund.

Has anybody else had this problem?
#39
Definitely e-mail them, its well within your right to do so. Or perhaps give them a call if they have a number. Mention that if you wanted an unbranded one you could have spent less, and they may refund you a couple of quid, otherwise get a refund.
