Hey all. Was in Tesco looking for cheap microSD cards, and found these. They are marked up at £10, but scanning for £3.50.
They were in the car section of Brislington Tesco in Bristol.

Wow, some people seem to have got out the wrong side of bed. If you don’t like the product/deal why bother commenting and making yourself look like an ass?

Don't be daft. I have a Class 4 no brand card that is absolutely hopeless …Don't be daft. I have a Class 4 no brand card that is absolutely hopeless for recording higher bit rate video.



Ehhh maybe because anyone who cares to check, knows Class 4 isn't for that type of application.
Extra storage in a phone, dashcam, Raspberry Pi, etc. all fine.

Why is it when any electronic device is posted, some one always ahs to try and state it is rubbish?

If I put petrol in my diesel car it won't go as fast as if I fill it with diesel (not fully true the engine will fail spectacularly much faster). Does that mean as a fuel for the right car it's useless?

Class 4 is absolutely fine depending on its usage, what a ridiculous thing to say, and besides this card performs well above its weight anyway.

Let's make it easy for you, perhaps you might learn something.......

If you were using a Class 4 card that actually has read/write speeds of a Class 4 card then you should already know that it is not suitable for recording large HD Video files.

Class 4? Jeezus H Christ! I thought they stopped making those in the early 2000s.

Performance is likely to be hideously slow.

Class 4 is absolutely fine depending on what you are utilising these cards for, to categorically state they will be 'hideously slow' is ridiculous.

Bought two this afternoon from a local Tesco for use in my PS Vita now it has customised with a SD2Vita adapter. Considering that the proprietary Vita memory card functions anywhere between equivalent of Class 2 - 6, Class 4 Micro SD will suffice for my needs.

Heat added, thanks for the heads up OP, 64GB worth of storage for my Vita for just £7. Emulation here I come.
Just to add they were in the car section of Stourbridge Tesco, bought two, two left on the shelf, no price shown on shelf rod.
Here are the results from Speedtest,

Given that gives UHS 3 performance of over 30MB/S write speed for a dubbed Class 4 UHS 1 class card, I think it is a veritable bargain.

Similar results from the second card I have.

Cards are branded Good RAM SDHC Class 4 UHS1

No, the product brand is Balance Point, the card itself inside the cardboard is actually branded Good RAM

Had an argument a couple of years ago with someone on here after I had posted a deal on a Kingston 64GB Micro USB stick. They were complaining it was worthless as the write speed was slow.

They just did not seem to get that once again it was all dependent on its usage. In our car for Ford Sync it is absolutely fine, it may take slightly longer to write the MP3 files to the device, but in reading them it does the job just fine.

Just so happens this card actually also punches above its class 4 branding, unless anyone feels that speedout is not an accurate utility and that I should try something else, happy to experiment.

I agree, bought 3 of those cheap dash cams from the post the other day, works fine. £6 for the cam, and £3.50 for the memory, I'm pretty happy.

LOL. Use a proper, established benchmarking tool like Crystal and ATTO, not that meaningless and unreliable 'SpeedOut' junk.

Can anyone test this card using H2testw?
Saw the label - but no cards - at Maryhill

Christ, for £3 what do you want?!
Well about the only sense that Picard123 has spouted in this thread is that Speedout is crap.

Just tested with H2testw

32081623-aUX3Q.jpg

Still a very impressive read speed of 38.2mb/s and at 7.77mb/s write speed still punches above its weight as a class 4 card, puts it closer to class 10 performance, in fact some class 10 cards benchmark around 8mb/s.

This card would function fine for general file storage, camera use and moderate video use, and an absolute bargain for £3.50

hey dude

does your vita have to be 'cracked' to be able to use this SD2Vita adaptor?

If you are above 3.60 firmware currently there is no way, otherwise look up Henkaku enso for jailbreaking the Vita and enabling the gamecard slot to utilise microsd cards with an adapter.
I can see myself driving around a few Tescos for this
is it only in store?

anyone able to purchase it online at Tesco website? If yes, please share link?

Or anyone please confirm if they are present in West Bromwich24/7 or Birmingham 24/7 Tesco?

Thanks
Only just bought one of those. Goddamn it.
great find, ideal for dash cam.

I appreciate the effort in getting a sheet with a pattern which matches the green branding on the SD card packaging. There are some very helpful people on here and a few miserable minnies!
Tried Tesco Litherland. Rubbish as usual.
Voted hot, great deal for those lucky enough to find it
Last one left on eBay if anyone wants
