paid 17.99 for mine and thought that was a good price.
Not compatible with some smartphones, like the HTC Desire, as I found out the hard way!!
I believe the write speeds shown on their website is wrong.

That will be because of capacity though and not this card. UHS-1 cards are backward compatible with SDHC.
Are zoombits trustworthy. I never heard of them
This might be a repeat but I didn't see the original posting so thanks, it's a bargain.
I'd steer clear of this card ....it get some VERY BAD reviews on Amazon here :

i have this card ordered it for galaxy s3 on 4/10/12 16.85 from play.com and until last week gave me no issues, now it is shown up in pc as 1.3tb of unreadable memory and the phone cant format it and neither can pc. tried sandisk recovery methods and using testdisk app nothing. in the middle of and RMA for this. read somewhere that s3 phones destroy these cards as they are not truly compatible and now found out that i should have got a samsung card instead. But Sandisk have released new cards that do work apparently. just an FYI on my experience.

Yeh I was put off because of those reviews, as I was after one for my S3...evereyone recommends getting a Samsung card and so I got this Samsung 32gb (even though it was class 6): hotukdeals.com/dea…550

But atleast it has excellent reviews on Amazon: amazon.co.uk/Sam…8-1

1.3TB? How did you get an extra 1200GB out of a 32GB Card?!
I would avoid these cards, I have had a few and they are not class 10, the quickest I can get for write speed is 7-8mb/s will stick to Samsung from now on.

Haha I know that would be a good hack. Its an mbr issue with no end cylinder sizing, something like that, it happens quite a lot with sdcards in varying sizes. Usually meaning they are goosed.

I think you'll find there's nothing wrong with SanDisk products. The problem is that we're awash with counterfeits. Not that I've any reason to believe this one's a counterfeit. It's unusual for SanDisk to ship adapters with micro SD cards though.

How sure are you they were genuine SanDisk? Were they in sealed packaging (hard to get into, not peel-apart)? Did they come with SD adapters? The answers would normally be yes and no respectively, the way I understand it.

As I've already said that thread has been 'updated with code'.As a result … As I've already said that thread has been 'updated with code'.As a result we have two threads the same, bit naughty really. Other thread should be put back to original details.



Other thread was posted first. The discount code to get item for £16.14 was posted on that thread by noddle36 (#18). Threads are updated with discount codes all the time
Oh come off it! This deal was sent to me by email from zoombits. I search for the 5% code myself and updated the thread. This was then even cheaper than your thread. The code is actually from a French website, does noddle know where, no, he copied it from this thread, fair enough, but credit where credit is due please.
And as I have already posted, this deal also gets new users a potential 10% off their next order, have not tried it yet, so can't confirm it works, but I do have a 10% off code, so in my opinion this is a better deal.
This deal isn't a duplicate, the previous deal was edited to include Zoombits after this deal was posted (now that edits been removed) so this deal is fine.
Thank you Bigflump, the other deal placed Zoombits in the title about lunchtime today, so all afternoon have been cashing in on my post, stealing the 5% discount code too... Now if I was a moderator what would I do....

They were both genuine, direct from amazon in sealed packaging with SD adaptor
i have always used sanDisk memory cards and NEVER had any problems
I received mine today, so I thought I share the read/write speeds I was getting with this and my old unbranded 32GB Class 10 micro SD card. I used the same 4GB file, and same setup, to do the test.

Unbranded 32GB Class 10 Micro SD (1 year old) paid £14
Read - very stable at 17.6 - 18 MB
Write - very stable at 11.1 - 11.4 MB

Sandisk 32GB ultra 1 Class 10 Micro SD (New)
Read - very stable at 25MB
Write - not so stable at 7.8 - 10 MB

Based on the above it seems that my unbranded card faired much better, as I think it is more important to have a faster write speed when recording data, I wish I could remember where I got it from.
I was always led to believe that SanDisk is a premium product, but from reviews of this Sandisk card I am no longer sure, I hope it do not encounter any issues.

Are you confident that it's genuine SanDisk?

I'm no expert but understand that genuine SanDisk products are likely to be difficult to open, perhaps needing to be cut open with strong scissors or a sharp knife rather than just peeling apart a couple of layers of paper/cardboard. It's probably perfectly genuine but it's very surprising that it was beaten by an unbranded equivalent. Did you use a tool such as ChkFlsh to run the tests or just measure manually?
It was extremely difficult to get out, I did have to finally cut it. In terms of measurement, well Windows 8 have a graphical window that shows you how quickly data transfer is happening, so that was my tool. I guess I could have used chkflsh, and I might just do that for you.

Please don't do it for ME! It sounds as though you have a genuine SanDisk product. If you do it for anyone, do it for you. ChkFlsh may give you a better idea of performance than Win8 does - I don't know (I'm still on Win7 where Chkflsh is very useful).

Fair enough that SanDisk did better with smaller files but still the unbranded does quite well. Not sure how important the small file read/write is to the grand scheme of things, maybe someone could enlighten me.

Here is another test done by msciazko, regarding Samsung 16GB Class 6 and this SanDisk card. Samsung outperformed SanDisk by a mile. Not quite a direct comparison as it is a 16GB Class 6, not sure if the capacity makes any difference, but the class should, so for a Class 6 to outperform a Class 10 is quite shocking. Moral of the story, stick to Samsung.

Moral of the story! Rubbish, I think most users are concerned with 1. Decent price for the best class and 2. The most storage per £1 than the write/read speeds. I took the plunge on this to replace storage capacity on my Airstash for streaming, this fast. if it was for my tablet I would have gone for a class 4 - why, because it's cheaper.
If someone is concerned about the card class, they are concerned about speed.

But I tend to agree that speed is generally less important than capacity or cost. The only time most of us NEED class 10 write speed is for continuous shooting on high-pixel-count still cameras. HD video doesn't need Class 10.

High speed is very desirable for file transfers, though, especially with high-capacity cards, but that doesn't have to mean high price or fancy brand. I've been very happy with some cheap Class 10 cards such as 7dayshop own-brand. Buy from someone reputable, test the card when it arrives and, if its no good, return it.

#Arold. Ordinarily I go for the cheapest I can get, but suggestions for my needs point to Class 10 for streaming through the Airstash. I am also using a Busbi class 10 64GB SDXC formatted to Fat2 (paid £17 for) and I see no difference in streaming speed between the Sandisk and the Busbi, I am so impressed with the storage space, speedand price of the Busbi! Waiting for a deal if anyone comes across one.
Well, the Busbi 64GB is only£23 on Play and the two reviewers using it for video are happy but the one using it for stills says "This card will not even cope with 3 fast manual single shots before the buffer fills and the camera stalls" which bears out what I said above - the key test of an sd card is continuous shooting on high-pixel-count still cameras. The Busbi is probably a decent buy for anyone who doesn't need fast write but no good to a lot of us. It certainly doesn't sound as if it's true class 10.
Finally got around to adding this to my S2.
Turned off phone, removed 8Gb card, copied all contents to laptop.
Put new card in phone, turned on and formatted.
Turned off phone again, put in laptop and copied all files from old card to new one.
Put new card in phone, so let's see what happens.
Wish the S2 supported hot-swap lol

Thanks to the OP for the deal
