I had emailed cex to make sure the card was covered and to see how they'd go about removing my data. They said they'd try formatting if not the card would be destroyed. Took it into my local cex and had been given a 128gb Samsung U3 card as a replacement. Just worried to test the card in my phone as the phone caused 2 cards to corrupt. Think the most recent camera update has caused issues. I've reformatted my phone but need to find a space smaller SD card to test video (10min slow Mo recording seemed to cause the first 2 cards to die).
Price still same. Go through TCB today and get an extra £3.00 off. Mine has tracked already
Samsung warranty involves an email, several online forms and then you have to send it tracked to Holland yourself.
Cex warranties are totally worthless
This deal expired, it's this new one at new lower price https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/transcend-microsdxc-memory-card-uhs-i-u3-v30-a1-class-10-128gb-1799-7dayshop-3130834 That deal poster @Chanchi32 did not tell @Terrahawks to update price to the new lower price, went ahead and posted a new deal for the same product, same seller?
Came up at £17.99 delivered when i went in. Good price. Thanks
Not worth using - the wireless connect is too slow. Easier to pop out the card and slot into the computer. Ours are working really well two years on. The only annoying thing with these is the capacitor that holds the date/time drains within a couple of days - maybe these are a newer model with a battery now?
In my 4th year of ownership now and it still works. Considering I went through 5 different cheaper Chinese alternatives in the space of 2 months, this Transcend is well built. Image quality these days isn't the best, there are now better out there. Don't expect to read registration plates if moving at high speed.
Have one of these. Great little camera
really good camera, had it for a quite a while now and can't fault it. pretty much never used the app, but nice to have to review video clips on your phone. Would recommend getting the suction mount as well: Transcend DrivePro Suction Mount
Anybody else think it was a washing machine on first appearance ?
Yeah I hear you. Similarly, I've had plenty of headphones and USB drives go through the wash in error without a single loss, but I don't reckon they'd be labelled as washing machine safe :D it's all designed to sell. I'm sounding awfully cynical and rose-tinted...I shall be quiet now!
I'm in IT, We've had Transcends before, if you drop them they fare more or less the same as most drives, basically its got rubber on the edges, and a bit of rubber inside the drive itself, all to try and cushion the impact and so prevent the heads bouncing over the disk surface in the event of a fall. Of course SSD's (although a lot more expensive for 4TB) negate this entirely as there no moving parts.
Genuinely useful but terribly misleading at the same time (the standard not your message). God bless marketing (I've worked in marketing).
Military standard Drop test mean it should survive a 4 foot drop onto 2inch plywood covered concrete, which is the standard the US Military set (MIL-STD-810). In real life terms think something knocked off a desk onto the floor. However the test is done by the maker, not any given standards testing agency and it just has to work, not remain intact or cosmetically complete. Its also done on a small number of drives (usually ten to twenty) in the design/prototype stage of any given design and NOT each production unit. faults in production units could void the results.. For those reasons .it should be considered an indication of how rugged it is but not a guarantee.of any given unit.
I always wonder when these say "military grade", as to which military exactly tested them or provided the parameters for it to be classed as such. More likely the marketers, but still...
Thanks guys amazing
Yes, you can buy an SSD enclosure to use it as a portable drive too. I use mine old ones using it.
with a usb to sata cable you can use it as an external drive. I use mine as an external drive - it does not need an external power cable. Its powered directly via the usb to sata cable
States internal in the title on Amazon
Anyone knows if this have to be inserted inside the laptop or does it connect externally like an external wd hard drive ?
Thank you ordered... It works a treat in my GoPro (y)
Celebrity Death Match anyone?, hehehehehehehe. :-D
Not just the speed to be honest with you ... But more importantly than that, the quality of the card is as well, basically?. :-) But in answer to your question, then yes, it would be fine (by the looks of it).
Would this be a good card for a DJI mavic air with a 4K camera? I read somewhere that the speed of the card is important. Thanks.
Thanks ordered,needed for a dash cam, heat added
Yep works like a dream in both hero 2018 and hero 5
Try this: https://www.hotukdeals.com/vouchers/10-off-all-memory-cards-with-code-memz-save-now-at-mymemory-3077333 That works.
Bought this, it just arrived today. Popped it in and it's coming up stating it's write locked and I can't put any data on it?
I thought it was funny
Ha ha ha ha, ha, ha, hmmmmmmmmmmmm. I get it now, as in the V2 bomber's, etc? (the penny finally dropped!, lol). Classic misdirection there, hehehehehe, no problem. :-D Does anyone else know as to what happened to the V2 prefixing? (infamously missing from memory card's?), thanx. :-)
If same price id personally go for this. Really id even go for Samsung over sandisk after hearing their write speeds being slower than stated and their fail rate being quite high.
I got Samsung for £3 more a week or so ago with the 10 year warranty.
should i get this vs sandisk ultra u1 for a switch? thanks
Or create another account. Voted hot and bought
Possibly do a 'guest checkout' ??
Camelcamelcamel is your friend ;) I'm looking for a pen drive/flash drive/memory stick (whatever you like to call 'em) and this thread popped up, from doing a search. I actually have a Transcend Ultra Speed 32GB Pen Drive that's lasted me for years, so I'm guessing this brand is reliable enough. The one I want to replace, the 7dayshop-bought Grixx USB 3.0/128GB, was hardly used and crapped out on me months ago.
was this ever £151 - showing up as £288 now
It would be nice if everyone stuck together and returned there purchase for a refund and said we wont tolerate price rises .one price for all.BUT its never going to happen.
Updated to latest price, seems amazon are raising the price from reacting to hits/sales against the product.
Works perfect in a GoPro hero 2018 and hero 5
Do MyMemory actually post negative feedback reviews of their products? Posted mine but it never appeared.
Indeed we are Android users. I'm fairly aware of personal data security (as you might have guessed?) and only trust companies I feel are reputable. Given my experiences with Transcend, I feel they're anything but...
So in summary, you don't know what cards are or are not suitable - only that they should be something vaguely "modern day" (whatever that means). Glad everyone is clear on that.
look we both know that no matter what i say you'll just try and troll it so why bother? the other interpretation is its obvious and you are just a bit slow
Are these good for gopros?
Hahahahahahahaha, I'm loving your use of light banter and humour there, loooool. :-D Keep it up. :-)
i'm exactly the same and voted hot, my Transcends have all transcended my Sandisk SD cards.
Good to hear a different comparitive balance of sorts (on pretty much the same previously above mentioned as well). :-) Balance is always a good thing. :-D That aside, you'll never get a Samsung coming up at around the price I've previously quoted above from before ... As already mentioned above there, there's often at least a £3 price (increase) difference between them?. Allllll Memory Card's (including my above stated Deal), have had a tendency both in the past + of late too, to fluctuate allllllll over the place?!. The real 'key' here, is catching them at the right/appropriate time, or whatever?, that's all ... I've seen Transcend 128GB Memory Card's going for upwards of £30+. I've seen SanDisk 128GB Memory Card's going for upwards of £35+. And I've also seen Samsung 128GB Memory Card's going for upwards of £40.+. It's alllllll about that catching it at the right time thing I mentioned before?. (As well as a gooooood sprinkling of 'balance' too I reckon?). Transcend, SanDisk, and Samsung are all very good Memory Card Manufacturers without a doubt. :-) So go with whichever brand you feel most comfortable with? (one day to the next ... )
I was interested in this over the SanDisk because never had a SanDisk last more than 6 months and never had a problem with Transcend so thanks for posting. Having said that I'll wait for the samsung to reach this price since its been brought up in this post.
You think I'm trolling? I tell someone to make sure they use the RMA service on their failed memory card that they used in a GoPro. Amour chimes in with an incredibly long, confusing post about dashcams and webcams, and how manufacturers aren't obliged to undertake their warranty responsibilities. He/she then goes on to claim that a GoPro is a webcam, and thus may not be eligible... And you say it's ME that's trolling?? :o
You click on their username, it'll bring up their profile overview. Then (it may vary a little depending on how you're accessing hukd) in my case, just scroll down a little to you see, mute member, and trolls are gone! I'm going through chrome on my mobile, but it's the same principle on the desktop.
How'd you mute people? (is it the 'Spam' feature?), or ... thanx. :-D
I understand as to why you brought forward such word's of wisdom now?, lol. ;( We live and learn, and all that ... (highfive) hehehe.
Cos I did a while ago!
you were 100% right - i installed from fresh - no problems previously i had cloned the windows 10 os via this guide carefully - which didnt work https://www.easeus.com/backup-utility/migrate-windows-10-to-ssd.html
can't see why not but why, not much space for games and ssd for system alone is not gonna change much that's certainly down to either formatting, partitioning or clonning. it should work.
if you happen to own an older hp compaq DC7800 model (or that ilk) - dont buy this or any other SSD for it - they'll not be recognized I cloned the os partition onto the integral ssd (deal of recent days) and it just will not see it (skeptical)
Ordered one from Amazon (cheeky) Better customer service and support over Ebuyer by miles. Bought a cheap Crucial 64GB V4 from those jokers few years back and when it died just few months after purchase, Ebuyer washed their hands off and didn't want to hear about it saying it's not their responsibility, when retailers is supposed to deal with RMA during 1st year of the warranty.
Amazon have it at 1p cheaper :D
Out of stock for me 13.54
How come expired , oos ? Back in stock for me , £49.97.
Decided to cancel my order anyway, dont really need it as I have 2 samsung evo 850's
Ordered mine on Tuesday @ £55.57, arrived today (Thursday) pretty good for free delivery (not Prime)! Came with Transcend 32GB High Endurance micro SD card (latest white version). I also ordered the MyArmour suction mount @ £6.99 but although it has a compatible mount it's going to need easing with a file to fit!!!
I've now expired the deal but it may be back! For those interested, there is a suction mount available here for £12.88 if preferred https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/body-camera-accessories/1239548/
Now £96.33 what a jump!
I bought three 520's then the price dipped on Amazon a couple of years ago . They have all failed, each from a different issue. Utter garbage and I will never buy another Transcend.
It’s now £54 8)
It's now down to Price: £63.48
You don't need to provide that information to anyone. Also it can backup an insurance claim for those of us that are safe drivers.
Some people prefer to keep their speed private, especially in the event of an insurance claim.
Always remember the wise old SD card couplet.... 'You must be quite round the bend To trust your data to Transcend'
cant comment on suitability for long term daily/heavy use in a dashcam but have been using one of these (64gb) in my Viofo A119 dashcam for over a year with no probs....dont use car everyday though... One thing I would say is that they do stand by their warranty....years ago I had one go wrong during a gopro firmware update...I think I may have unplugged too early or something...not sure but no matter what I tried the card was dead. It was about 18months old and I sent it back to Transcend and they swapped it no probs (was more expensive then so was glad about that)...never had another fail since and would definitely buy again.
Doesn't tell you all that much apart from confirming capacity and read/writes. Nothing to tell you whether it's genuine or fake.
Couldn't agree more. And some "expert" opinion posted on here by some are questionable. :) I've not come across any insurer I've had quotes from mentioning dash cams, but I'm not sure you'd have too much trouble with an insurer if you had a failed dash cam or card. Failure's happen. If you went off the road due to brake failure caused by a failed hydraulic seal, I'd imagine they'd pay up, subject to the usual vehicle maintenance conditions. Something that hasn't reared it's head is the subject of fake cards, and I've yet to see a reliable means of checking.
Seems to pop in and oos.
