This is a dane-elec 32GB microSDHC card
only weighs 1.4grams so wont weigh you down
and with Operating temperatures: -13°F to 185°F (-25°C to 85°C) you can still access in a freezer or in your tea(!)

Awesome price! Thanks

Can someone explain to me why 32gb is more then then double the price of a 16gb card?

Perhaps because they are not manufactured in bulk, as not many people buy them.;)(_;)

Im actually amazed at how they can fit 32GB on something this small!

The production costs will be higher

Same reason as 2Tb drives are more than double the price of 2x1TB drives, or double density DVD's cost more than two single density DVD's, or 16gb zip drives cost more than two 8gb zip drives ...... how many more examples do I need to provide?

The cost of condensing something down to half the size outweighs the cost of two older technology units.

They have to fit double the memory on the same amount of space. That takes more than double the effort. The smaller things are the exponentially harder it becomes to make (in computers anyway).

Anyone know what class this is?

Scratch that. Class rating two. Not recommended for HD recording.

They're also newer on the market so we're still waiting for the price to drop. Earlier on this year the cheapest price of the 16Gb cards was about £26. That's come down to about £16 now.

Shame its only class 2.

Good enough for watching hi-def shows though on a advent tab when they eventually come out ??

Wait till Class 6 comes down to this price.

seems to be an obsession with storage, bring back the paper and pencil dear

OMG 32gb on a micro card. Storage has come a long way. I am sure it will double in 18 months again. But am amazed at this now.

This is likely to be genuine capacity too. Most on eBay are fake.

Good size, but way too slow for most SD card uses nowdays

Cool i could put my boxsets on my HTC Desire . Thats mental . Heat added.

Good, yes - but still almost TREBLE the cost of 16gb - I just don't understand their reasoning with this. I won't buy a 32gb until it's less than a £1 per gb (and a good make - not eBay crap you throw out after a week of not working)

Ive got an adapter for my Sony camera. takes two sd micro cards
7dayshop.com/cat…092
For £3.99 - and works BEAUTIFULLY

Very expensive!!

I bought two of these from an eBay seller at £24.99 including delivery! Both worked a treat and are also class 4.

In terms of relative use, can anyone comment on how the class type would affect the performance on something like the new Advent Vega? I'm interested in knowing if the jump for class 2, 4 or 6 would make a significant difference in time, i.e. seconds or fractions of a second for a package to open or a HD film to play, etc?

Thanks

You are VERY lucky
I'd say at a rough estimate you are one of 5% who get good sd cards that actually WORK from eBay
Ive bought 2 and neither worked. One micro and that didn't work either
I'm the usual
Don't give people the impression that eBay sd and micro cards are reliable
I can't stress this strongly enough THEY AREN'T

Hardly. Same machine, same materials essentially.

For that price I'd say you've been had mate.

Try backing the data up and formatting the cards. Watch how after formatting your computer suddenly recognises them as only being 16Gb or 8Gb or maybe even less.

Scam eBayers are famed for getting Micro SDHC cards with a smaller memory size, badging them up as 32Gb and sticking a special file on them so devices mistakenly read them as 32Gb. After formatting the special file will disappear revealing the card's true identity.

Of course you'll never be able to store 32Gb on them and low and behold they were mysteriously available to buy on eBay months before proper 32Gb cards were ever released!

it costs more because you need to pack more memory cells/transistors into the same area (i.e the density of storage has to increase). This requires more advance fabrication lines and newer technology (more expensive r&d costs) this obviously adds to the cost.

Well the average price on a 16GB card is nearer £25+ so it really is only roughly double. (I know 7DayShop have some very good deals on 16GB cards though)

Just paid £35 for a Class II 16GB from eBuyer by accident.. forgot to send it back within 30 days *sigh*

16GB cards use 40nm chips whereas 32gb needs a smaller geometry.
Sandisk use 8 X 32nm chips stacked one on top of each other to get 32gb in a microSD.
A new chip fab costs billions to set up, so early players will set prices at whatever level the market will bear, regardless of unit cost. Also any new process, will have lower production yields.

the class rating is an easy way to know the lowest guranteed data rates for read and write , you normally get a higher rate nearly all the san disk cards(still around £100) are class2 so it can't be that bad can it?

for reading files (i.e. opening your HD film) I really wouldn't worry. The Class speed directly relates to the WRITE speed.

Class 2 = 2MB/s minimum
Class 4 = 4MB/s minimum
etc etc

And that is a minimum so many will actually perform much better than their rated speed.

The read speed will be much higher on almost on card and more than adequate for opening your videos. It might just take you up to 3 times longer to transfer them to the card in the first place

this is better from play.com since its a class 4 and the same price, pity about the review

Nice spot, gutted I wasted money on my Class 2 now!

If that reviewer really does have a card that bad then it's faulty..

How about this one?

It's not that hard. The biggest capacity of any medium always costs more than double the cost of half that capacity. It's simple market forces.

It's just the way it works. As demand goes up, costs go down, as demand decreases costs go up. That's why DDR2 is now more expensive than DDR3. DDR2 is older tech, but due to decreased demand it's more expensive.
