What difference does class rating make? ( sorry if stupid question)

What difference does class rating make? ( sorry if stupid question)



Perfectly valid question!

The speed and performance is the main difference, as anything Class 6 or over is more for High speed Digital SLR (RAW) or HD Video use - the reading and writing to and from is faster.

Below is the classification:
* SDHC Class 2: 2 MB/sec (16 Mbit/sec)
* SDHC Class 4: 4 MB/sec (32 Mbit/sec)
* SDHC Class 6: 6 MB/sec (48 Mbit/sec)
* SDHC Class 10: 10 MB/sec (80 Mbit/sec)

Although Transcend say this on their website:
"Adhering to the new Class 10 specification, Transcend’s SDHC cards perform at a transfer rate up to 20MB/s on devices supporting SD 3.0, ensuring your device remains quick and responsive while recording and viewing files."

No probs! I got the Samsung 16GB's from play.com last time round (though only Class 6), but same price hence this is a bargain!

I guess it's not getting enough hot votes! ... there's so many SD card deals on at the mo... you think they are trying to get rid of them to make way for SDXC cards or something!

How would these compare to the Samasung's? Apparently these aren't as fast as they say they are...

I'd say they "should" be faster as the "Classing" is fairly strict I think, but have a read of these reviews to see real life test results. I'll need to wait for my order to arrive till I can do some tests myself!

Sorry, not the sharpest knife in the box here. Could I get one of these to go into a digital camera ~ Kodak CD82 to be precise?
Thanks for any help

Thanks ordered the 8gb for my Nikon D40 - I assume it will work fine in that camera?

Any deals on MicroSD?

Yes, looks like your camera can take SDHC and normal SD cards - go for it quick!

Good choice, I used to have that model too! It will work fine with 8GB (probably 16GB too).

I have a D90 now...just eats memory up!

Pretty sure that it will, your camera does use SD cards and it is HCSD compatable which means it should cope with a card up to 32gb

Sorry should have mentioned I'm looking for MicroSD 4GB/8GB Class 6+...not many deals around! This is cheap for fullsize SD

Good Price

Thanks

Very good. Sadly can't use them in my Sony.
I only wish they did micro sd's like this at this price.

Gone for a 16GB one for my SD Camcorder! Heat added! Cheers!

Ah... how about this 8GB Class 6 from Amazon £13.99 delivered ?

Fast MicoSD is pricey!

[quote=sds1493] ... as the "Classing" is fairly strict I think ...



Now that's very funny - if there is one thing that is downright dishonest it's the Class rating for SD cards! It's just a marketing gimmick.

The SD Speed Class Ratings specify a MINIMUM sustained write speed for SD cards (Class 2: 2 MB/s; Class 4: 4 MB/s; Class 6: 6 MB/s; Class 10: 10 MB/s; Class 16: 16 MB/s) and that means nothing - since some Class 4 cards actually deliver better write performance than some Class 6 or even Class 10 products!

There's a lot of rebranding going on by SD card vendors. Panasonic now has a range of Class 10 SDHC memory cards. On closer inspection, it turns out that they are, in fact, Class 6 cards that meet the requirements of the Class 10 category. In other words, they ensure a minimum write speed of 10 MB/s, as most SDHC cards already do. Tests here ...

digitalversus.com/pan…tml

confirm that the new Panasonic Class 10 memory card is just a renamed version of their existing Class 6 card. The cards writing data transfer speed just managed to scrape through into the Class 10 category at 11.7 MB/s.

Original Poster

@grumyone - tbh I couldn't agree more... Sandisk have a Class 6 and Class 10 Extreme 30MB/s card - almost identical to each other, but the Class 10 just scraps it!

Back to the deal - the Transcend card scores very highly in the same review site.. if we see some Class 10 Pani deals are posted here, it will be met with ice for sure!

bout this for a £1 more over the weekend.. at mymemory..

very good deal - fluctuates around the £11/£12 mark at Amazon via mymemory etc.
thanks op

Would the 8gb card work ok in a FUJIFILM FINEPIX S8100 FD ? sorry not to up to date on all this stuff, many thanks

Just bought a camera that can take SDHC and SDXC but my question is will my old pc with a 6 year old SD reader be able to read it

I just clicked expire on this by mistake! Hopefully it won't affect it! Meant to be clicking on the deal below!

Its likely that it won't read SDHC and just reads SD cards. You will need something like amazon.co.uk/Int…8-1
