Hi Cokeman, care to post the details of where!

Play do their own make class 4, 16gb micro sdhc for the same price... you might refer sandisk over play - I personally wouldn't care.

Play cards are crap for mobile phones though... writing speed of many small files is just terrible...

they are OK with their writing speed when you write big files though... like couple of MB each... if you got say Symbian or Android based phone and these tend to write to memory card lots of small files... writing speed reduces to crawl.... in such scenario class4 Play branded card can be 10 times slower than class2 sandisk...

I have one class4 8gig card from play and using it now only as additional memory for my sansa mp3 player, mp3 files are big enough to not hit this card performance too badly...


small test... writing 5000 small files (each approx 10-30kB in size)
Play branded 8GB class4 - takes approx 1 HOUR !!! (never seen card as slow as that before)
Sandisk 8GB class2 - takes approx 4 minutes

same with deleting such files from the card...
Play - took 30 minutes just to delete these....
Sandisk - deleted files in 30 seconds !

again... reading and writing bigger files is just fine

I was considering grabbing one of these, as it seemed a good deal to me, Class 2 is a bit slow (want for my blackberry pearl 3G) but 16gb is a lot of storage on one of these sized cards.

surprised to see it such a cold deal here to be honest, even if it is available at the same price at amazon

£22 for Kingston Class 4 is not too bad
