Here's a quick test I done using Crystal Disk Mark 3 (64bit)

I ran the 100mb test for the following three cards. I know it's not ideal as the PNY is only 8gb whereas the other two are 16gb. However, all three test different class ranges.

I'll let you see the results for yourselves.

There's nothing wrong with Transcend, they've been in the ram business back in the 90's from what I remember. They're well experienced in the ram/memory sector and from my experience reliable.

SDHC is the same as SD but with 'high capacity'

i've got one of the class 6 samsung and transcends class 10 and the transcend outperforms the samsung in-camera. those crystalmark benchmark tests are inaccurate, no slur on mith, they just don't work properly.

SDHC stand for Secure Digital High Capacity. I believe all cards of 4Gb and over are SDHC, only 'low capacity' 2Gb cards or less are 'SD'. Older cameras can't take SDHC cards, check that your camera is compatible before buying an SDHC card. nearly all newer cameras will be fine, though.

going to take a chance on this, I don't even have my camera yet

thank you very much

I agree. I bought one of the sandisk Cruzer Blade USB drives when they were on special last week from Amazon for £10.99. It arrived today and using it a few times it was quicker than I expected from what I had read. Tested it with Atto Disk Benchmark and it gave a maximum write speed of 2.5Mb/s, which I just didn't believe, so I did my own timed test with 200Mb of data, which it copied in 47 seconds, which is 4.25Mb/s, not speedy, but nearly twice as fast as the benchmark said.

Makes me wonder if any of these synthetic benchmarks are really accurate, there's no substitute for real-world testing, if it seems fast it probably is and visa versa....

Sorry, a bit off topic there. Heat added, BTW, this is an absolutely cracking deal! Well found, Mith.

Grrr, just got a ByteStor one with my Fuji HS10. Works fine, but looking at those benchmarks I would've preferred this card.
Edited by: "jukkie" 7th Dec 2010

I've had this for a few months now, using it in a 550d. Great buy, very quick and reliable.

8GB versions works great on my Canon 500D. Trying to stop myself spending more money now!!

got one, thanks for the info!

ordered to go with my amazon tz10!! cheers OP

Ultimately they offer a lifetime warranty. There's not many memory manufacturer's that offer that and I always look at that that they are very confident in their products (just remember to keep the receipt should anything go wrong!)

the crystaldisk agrees that transcend is faster.
Atto and co rely on test size etc and results vary between sizes.
wonder if using crystaldisk etc with a test size of your image - say 10mb and repeated many times would give a more accurate picture for them? guess thats the same as copying a batch of small files.
are pictures going on a card random writes or would small sequentials be the same?
if thats the case seems the samsung may be better for very small files but as they get bigger the transcends sequential speed catches the samsung?
(with micro sd cards transcend were pretty slow for access times on ds so slow seek matters for small files but less importand on larger)
will i stop now?

Great deal.Voted hot!
Whilst on the subject of memory cards I've just bought my young son a camcorder for Xmas.Only a cheap one (a Bush tdv552 from Argos) as he's only 9.I purchased the recommend card to go with it (a Sandisk sdhc 4gb class 4 card)and found that it worked great exept that when I played back a video on the camcorder itself the video paused every now and then.
As I've never had a camcorder with a Sd card before I wondered if anyone would know if this could be a fault with the camcorder or the card?

idiot

cameras for about the past 3yrs support SDHC, they usually have the SDHC logo on the camera somewhere. I get around 21mb read and 12+mb write with these, i bought the 8gb class 10 trascend a few days ago. Tested with a 175mb file, the write speed was increasing all the time, should have tried a 500mb file to file out what the write speed would have ended up as. The read was pretty much constantly 21. My class 6 trascend 4gb was around 12mb read and 7mb write so a big improvement.

if video plays ok elsewhere id guess the camcorder.
the read speed from the card is going to be double (or more than) the write speed so playback is the easy part vs recording for the card.
..maybe

not quite the cheapest yet as it was on Amazon this morning for less then £12

if it helps any, i can shoot non-stop 10megapixel (j-peg) photos at 4 frames per second with no delay when writing to the card, it would just keep writing till the card filled up. 1080p movies are obviously not a problem and playback is perfect.

For anyone looking at these for a HD camcorder - They work great on my Sony CX115 in AVCHD @ 24 Mbit/sec.

I think you'll find that was a marketplace seller, selling it for around £11.50 + £4.95 delivery. This card has definitely never been this cheap before, either from a reputable dealer like Play or from a questionable marketplace seller.

Don't forget Quidco to get an extra 0.5% off (yes, I know it's not much but it's still a little bit more of a saving)

you stick to 'sandisk and such' if you want. the same spec equiv from sandisk costs £60. rip off.

i have a transcend class 6 and a class 10, both 16GB and both work fine and i use them in two different camaras (panasonic g1 and panasonic tz7) and they are used heavily. never had a single glitch, never a single problem.

Nothing wrong with Transcend cards. Work perfectly on all my gadgets.

Good to know as I have bought one of these transcend 16gb for my daughter's soon to arrive Panasonic HDC-SD60 csmcorder.

can assure you that this card is very fast on writing and reading. I do not use software to test as that would be virtual, same if I use the ATTO SOFTWARE on my samsungs raid 0 drives which will read and write speeds of onev 250mb per second. In reality would not be more than 90 to 110 with burst of over 200mb but for a second sometime at the very begginning of the test. Anyway i test by transferring a certain amount of material in to the harddrive and viceversa which is the most reliable test we can do and this card gives me a read speed of nearly 19mb and a write speed of over 12mb. I also got an 8 gb transcend class 6 with a read speed of over 17mb and write speed of more than 8mb per second.
