Sandisk 8GB Micro SDHC card for £8.99 from Amazon. I think it's a decent price for a branded 8GB SDHC card.

This has been falling in price for a couple of days now; was £9.45, then £9.15, now just £8.99. Select the 'Frustration Free Packaging' option to buy at this price.

I've been looking at SDHC Micro cards since I bought my new mobile a week ago, I actually ordered this exact same card off Play.com for £9.49 yesterday because Amazon estimates delivery in 2-4 weeks. Still, a bargain if you're prepared to wait a bit!

calss 2 so slow (well, since it is sold as a class 2 its *potentially* slow but they do vary wildly between manufacturers)

Now listed as 'In Stock' on Amazon.

Personally, I would much rather spend £3.50 more and get the Samsung 8gb Micro SDHC which is Class 6 (so super fast) and which is dust, water, pressure and magnetic proof

Both amazon and play sell them for £13.49.

Hot though

Hang on. £8.99 + £3.50 = £12.50

£13.50 is £4.50 more which is 50% more expensive.

But it's probably worth £4.50 for the extra speed if you intend to use this in your phone to run apps off. For use in an mp3 player, for example, it doesn't matter.

was going to order this, but one of the most recent reviews said it was full after putting 1gb of music on it. so these could be dodgy cards

The dodgy card was probably supplied by a marketplace seller. If you get it direct from Amazon then it will almost certainly be legit.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, i have a san francisco phone with a 4GB scandisk sd card in it, what is the benefit of the Samsung 8GB Micro SDHC Class 6, what does it do that my 4gb scandisk one doesn't?

Yeah, more often than not, if your item's under a tenner, Amazon will ship it from Indigostarfish. Especially more mainstream items like CD's, DVD's & memory cards/sticks. I've ordered dozens of things off Amazon that were fulfilled by Indigostarfish and I've never had any problems.

Yeh, it just makes it a lot faster overall. It stops my htc desire stuttering or pausing music for a second or so if I am running loads of apps of the sd. You will be able to write data a lot quicker than a class 2 or 4 @ 17mb per second. Therefore, yes taking pictures on the phone and loading them will be quicker but you are talking miliseconds - maybe 1 or 2 seconds max. It's not gonna be a huge difference.

But the memory card is also a lot more reliable and robust. It's about as indestructible as a micro sd can be and is really quite unlikely to break. I've had two sandisk 8gb class 2's bought legitimately from amazon direct and both of them just started failing after about a year. These wont.

All in all, i'd say its £3 or £4 well spent. Cause if you buy a class 2 one and it breaks, its gonna cost me as you will have to purchase a whole new one.

For those who don't understand the 'classes' of card, you are much better off getting a faster one! If you record any video on your phone on a slow card, you will get a very stuttery video, that is not something you would really want to keep. On a fast card this will be super-smooth video.
A chap at work demonstrated it to me at work on his HTC Desire HD with two different speeds of card and the difference is amazing.

Honestly you do not really want to bother with a slow card IF you think you would like to record video.

Bear this in mind if you record the odd video on your phone.

I've just had one of these die on me after just over a year (of course...). Whilst it has a 5-year warranty you have to send it to the Czech Republic to RMA it, which is more expensive than just buying another one. I'll personally not buy Sandisk again, and have gone for a Kingston one which has the same 5 year warranty, but a UK RMA process.
