good deal, voted hot. I just bought a sandisk 4gig sdhc class 2 from picstop for £12.99!

Even better I think, is one of these, which has an inbuilt USB plug. I bought the 2Gb version lat week and it's great. More portable and 50p cheaper too

It’s half the speed though. What makes this a good deal is that it’s the Extreme III which is rated at 20MB/Sec for read/write versus 10MB/Sec for the one you linked to.

please update the price to 17.99

Yep - price is showing as £17.99 - have Play put the price up or did the OP make a mistake? It's the same price delivered at ]picstop

That's true, it depnds what you're after. I decided 10MB/s was quite enough for my needs so the advantage of the inbuilt USB function was what sold it for me.
The OP didn't make a mistake, Play put the price up. The one I bought is still £16.49 though.

It's actually £1.50 cheaper, although it may be slower a lot of equipment (like compact digital cameras) wouldn't take any benefit from the extra speed. It seems a clever way to make the card portable and with no compatibility problems.

It is now that they put the price of the other one up! I use mine in my SLR so there's no benefit of a fast card other than download speed (which is quick enough anyway). If you have a camera with a movie mode you may need a fast card to be able to record in the highest quality but 10MB/s may still be enough.
I agree, it's a really clever idea and not much more expensive than the standard card. It feels pretty well made too, i don't have any concerns about it breaking, but I think it comes with a 10 year guarantee anyway.

Got one of these last week, £13, PC world selling for £49.99. price match +10%
LOL

I have a non-HD SD card camcorder (Canon FS100), and at the highest quality the data rate is 9 MB/s.
So I'm guessing if you were to buy one of the HD SD card camcorders you'd need to go for one of these faster cards.

It would certainly be the safe option. IIRC the write speed for the USB card is quoted as 9MB/s.

If you have a burst mode in your camera, then you will need a high speed card to get the fastest speed. I can only take 3fps with a card like this.

It probably won't make much difference in a compact, but a DSLR it will help you get the most out of you camera.

Would this work with readyboost?

Amazon had this for £16.99 acouple of days ago but was out of stock. Still out of stock but now 17.99 + free delivery with amazon prime

When I put mine in my laptop it lets me select Readyboost, never tried it though. Bear in mind thats going direct through the SD card slot, not via USB.

Good price, but I lashed out £10(ish) more for the 8Gb one posted the other day @ Memorybits. I can't be bothered with the maths but I imagine it'll work out as slightly cheaper per Gb if you wanna stretch the budget. Suppose it also depends on if you need/want the SDHC reader, I don't as I they are already built into my PCs.

Cool cheers. Yeah my laptop has built in reader. Humm may or may not work then, as it gives that option for every removable drive.

Never mind only 17.99 i'm sure i could sell it for that on ebay

Tried it and when you do it it writes something to the memory that takes up the remaining space. So looks like it will work.
