Good find, exceptional price for a class 10 card, heat added.

'Sold by KOMPBAY and Fulfilled by Amazon.'

Just a little warning, though: there seem to be a lot of these Transcend class 10 cards that actually perform at nowhere near class 10 speed and are presumably fakes. As this card is sold by an 'Amazon affiliate', rather than Amazon themselves, if you buy one, I would advise downloading a speed test program like Atto Disk Benchmark (just type it into Google) and if it is not true class 10 speed, send it straight back for a refund. At least Amazon are very good for after-sales and should be no problem.

Sandisk extreme III class 10 32gb cards are near £100, if this is genuine then this card is amazing value...
#3
They are genuine. This was posrted about a fortnight ago and I got one then. Verified it on the Transcend web site. Its also the only SD card of all the ones I own (including three 8gb Transcend Class 10 cards bought last month) that is fast enough for Windows 7 to allow it to be used for the Readyboost function - so it is even faster than the 8gb class 10 card of the same type, somehow.

Also bear in mind that these come with a warning on the packet that you shouldn't re-format them on a PC, only in the device you want to use them in, as formatting them on a PC can make them slower as a PC format doesn't use the most optimal cluster size by default.
#4
Also bear in mind that just because a PC reports a size slightly smaller than written on the card doesn't mean its a fake. There are actually 1024 bytes in a "kb", so a MB = 1000kb = 1024000bytes.

This 32GB card is reported by Windows as having 32,450,281,472 bytes - over 32,000 million bytes, but it is reported by a PC as 30.2GB.
#5
Also bear in mind that on Transcend's own web site, it states that these cards are SD 3.0 compliant (the new standard it says) and that you can only expect full performance from an SD3.0 compliant device.

Testing the speed of these faster cards on devices that aren't SD3.0 compliant will give false readings as only SD3.0 devices can take advantage of the faster speed....

The botton line is that these are the fastest SD cards I have and the "price per GB" is very good. Whether my devices are SD3.0 compliant, I don't know but at least I know I'm protecting my investment and they'll be good in any future devices I buy....

How about benchmarks then!!
read and write
#7
Anyone remember buying a 1gb around this price???? I do!!
#8
1gb? I can remember when you got 1mb for this price!!!!!!!!
#9
Shonk
How about benchmarks then!!
read and write


Well stuffed into a cheap SD/USB adapter (cost me £1.50 delivered....) which is stuck into the back of a seven year old laptop running Windows XP, I'm getting a write speed of 15mb/sec and a read speed of 18mb/sec.
The 8gb Transcend class 10 card I've been reformatting in different ways to try and see what format setting is fastest will only do a write speed of 10mb/sec but it will match the read speed of 18mb/sec.

Good idea.

Just to give people something to go on I tested my Transcend Class 10 16GB SDHC and a couple of other cards with ATTO.

Near as damit results for transfer sizes over 128KB:

Card..................................................................write......(MB/sec)..... read
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Transcend Class 10 16GB SD....................14.5............................20.5
Kingston Class 4 Micro 16 GB SDHC........10.0............................16.4
SanDisk 2GB Micro SD....................................6.0............................11.0

Has anyone tested the transfer rates for SanDisk Extreme III cards with ATTO? - be interesting to compare the results with the Transcend class 10 cards considering the price difference.
#11
I bet the read speeds would have been even higher had USB 2.0 not had the limit of around 20mb oO (i know it's stated as 480mbps).

Just breath taking that so much data can be stored on one single card :D Very nice price!
#12
Using ATTO - 16gb Transcend Class 10 and Sandisk 8gb MicroSD Class 6 both gave 17mbs write speed and 20mbs read speed..
Both my 8gb Transcend class 10 gave 13gb write speed and 20gb read speed.
#13
any tips of how to use atto properly?
reported read/writes vary alot with different settings

Be very wary of this - it's not Amazon, and, unless HUKD policy has changed, should not be listed here.

At the time it was posted it was 'Sold by KOMPBAY and Fulfilled by Amazon' although that now appears to have changed, so expired.
#16
I bought one of these, should get it tomorrow, will try and test it out. Not used Atto disk benchmark before, from the screenshot it seems possible to completely read/write the whole card for testing?

voted hot
#18
why has this expired? its still available?
#19
It went out of stock with Amazon and went up in price slightly, but probably back in stock.
Can't comment on write speed but read speed was 18.9 dropping to 18.7mb/s with h2wtest 1.4 software. Was using a poor card reader before swapping as was getting lower than 5mb/s which is much lower than what the card can do....

h2wtest is a good software to write 100% to the card and then read it back to make sure its fine.
