Samsung MB-SP8GEU 8GB SDHC PLUS Class 6 Extreme Speed Memory Card £13.99 @ Amazon

Found 16th Nov 2010
Good price for a bullet-proof card.

I'm not sure what the 'Extreme Speed' version is, even the Samsung website doesn't, but the standard Plus card is about £18 most places.

I know this isn't the cheapest card available but I'm done with cheap cards after 1 got wiped by an X-Ray machine coming back from holiday and another broke inside the camera (which luckily they fixed under warranty).

'....after 1 got wiped by an X-Ray machine....'

That's a worrying bit of information. Are you convinced it was the X-Ray machine that did it and if so why would it make a difference whether it was a cheap card or not?

I don't mean to question you, its just that you've got me worried now....

Best find the delivery time, i ordered one a month ago and it says Nov 23 delivery on my account.

got a couple of these they are spot on

You might also consider this as it's a couple of quid cheaper

It has exactly the same specs as the SD and before you say oh it's micro sd so not comparable, it comes with an SD adaptor which works fine (even works in my supposedly non sdhc compatible card readers, interestingly my 'good' Kingston USB reader had terrible transfer rates)

On my system the max write I got was 10.3 mb/s and 16.3 mb/s read

Memory cards aren't affected by X Ray machines.

Thanks for that, I appreciate what you are saying, and if it never came out the camera I'd be all over it. I take my card out after every shoot though so I want a 1 piece robust card.

Don't know what it is. Worked on holiday, didn't work when I got back. Easy to blame a cheap card I guess but when you've lost all your holiday pics, I'm reluctant to risk so much data again for the sake of £5 or so. Like I said, a cheap card certainly fell to bits on me inside the camera so it's not just the x ray thing
