Voted hot and ordered one!

voted hot and very tempted

Bought this last week... didn't think it was hot enough to bother posting on here as it is only a few quid cheaper than else where... there are some other comparative deals for HCSD cards at 7dayshop....

Just so you know, although they offer free deliver, my orders take on avaerage 7 - 10 days to arrive, so if you need it sooner opt for the faster shipping...

Also don't forget Quidco... its only about 1% but it all adds up

Heat and rep added

A few quid when the card is about 10+ pounds still means a good 10-30% discount :thumbsup:

may i ask whether there would be any disadvantages to getting the 8GB MicroSD with SD adaptor over just a plain 8GB SD card??

This way i can use the card in both my camera (SD) and my mobile (MicroSD).
would the speeds vary once the adaptor is used? i'm looking at the 8GB Class 6 type.

The transcend ones at £11.99 come with a lifetime warranty too, not sure if these do

Voted hot good find

Smart man, I do the same :thumbsup:, would also like to know if the adapter will slow things down? However, I only have a class 4 Sandisk 8GB (the one that comes with the micromate). When used with the adapter in my Lumix TZ5 recording HD footage most of the time its fine but occasionally I get a message: "The recording of motion picture stoped due to the limitation of writing speed of memory card". So I'm not sure if its beacuse its a class 4 (I think they recommend a class 6) or if its becuase of the adapter.

If your only going to be taking pictures \ SD video then you should be fine.

The adapter shouldn't slow things down as it's just adapting the size and contact position rather than doing anything electrical the only downside possibly is that these things are only rated at so many insertions so you may find they wear out sooner but the lifespan is still probably longer than the device you're putting them in

thanks for the replies guys.

was thinking about this one @ 11.49 and lifetime warranty:

Does anyone know if this is compatible with a Sandisk Sansa Fuze mp3 player?

Fantastic, was looking for a fast SDHC as I found out the one in my Canon 500D was Class 2! Now I can shoot RAW and not have to worry (as much).

Just a note regarding speeds of cards. Class only refers to the minimum write speed i.e. class 2 = minimum 2mb/sec, class 4 = minimum 4mb/sec, class 6 = minimum 6mb/sec. However, cards may surpass that by a lot (e.g. some will write at 18mb/sec!) so it's even possible to have a class 4 card that is actually faster at writing than a class 6 card. Therefore if speed is important to you try to find reviews first. Remember also your device (not card) will have a maximum write speed. No point in buying a Sandisk Extreme IV SDHC card for £90 if your camera/camcorder is not going to take advantage of it thus a £10 card would do the same job.

I went for the Transcend 8gb class 6 from 7dayshop but via amazon because it still came from 7dayshop but was a little bit cheaper (£10.49 I think) and still free postage - that may not be the case now but worth checking I reckon, especially if you have an amazon account but not a 7dayshop account set up.

Toms Hardware found the Transcend class 6 was very nearly as fast as its bigger brother (the Transcend "x150" card) and Lexar Pro etc - all the expensive fast cards. I'm not saying this is the gospel truth but, well, the card works as well/fast as my 2gb Sandisk Extreme III which I bought with the camera (Canon IXUS 850IS) originally 2 years ago.

I just picked up two of the Transcend 8 class 6 cards from 7dayshop today, whose price dropped to £10.99 each if you buy more than one.
