Strengths: High speed, appears to be reliable.

Weaknesses: none

Summary: (Edited April 25th by yijiepeng) I needed a high speed Secure Digital Card for my new canon SD400 (BTW, the camera is very very good),This card is one of the fastest ones on the market,and at that time, buy.com had slick deal for it, so I bought it at quite good price after rebate. I put the camera in continuous shooting mode and see how the memory performed. It worked flawlessly. I also have used the camera in movie mode, it works flawlessly too. So far So Good.

Strengths: Fast Speed - Cheap Price - Good quality

Weaknesses: None

Summary: I've paired this with my Nikon 3700 and had great performace. Now I can finally shoot in 640x480 30FPS for as long as I want. Great performance on this card and 512mb is plenty for the amount that I shoot.

Grab it while you can. Its a great price on a great card!

Strengths: high capacity, relatively cheap price (after rebate)

Weaknesses: did not solve my problem of long write times with my Canon A510

Summary: I recently purchased a Canon A510 digital camera and noticed that it took my camera around 5 seconds to store a picture into the original SD card I was using. I figured that it was an issue with the SD card, and that a faster SD card would help.

I found the Kingston Elite Pro after searching on the net. It looked like the solution for my problems. Having a 65x write speed was impressive. But for the price (after rebates) that it was being sold for online, it sounded like a steal.

However, after trying this SD card out with my Canon A510, I still have the same issue of long write times. Effectively, I can only take shots every 5-8 seconds due to this. I find this to be a significant inconvenience.

Now I must point out, that the problem may be with the camera, and not with the SD card. And other than the issue with long write times, this SD card works great.

Strengths: Super High Speed, Made in Japan, White Attractive Color

Weaknesses: None

Summary: A great SD card for its price. I used it for my sd300 which is great because I can record clips with 30 fps with over 3 minutes. Most Secure Digital Cards can't do that. They don't have to speed. Compare with the other cards i have this is the best one. This is even better then Lexar's and other high speed ones. When transferring movies and pictures to the computer. It takes only a few minutes to copy all the files. I would highly recommend this!

Strengths: High Speed

Weaknesses: No rating about speed.

Summary: Its rated as high speed but the leaflet that came with it did not state the speed ! Bought this to be used with a Kodak DX 4530. There was no noticable speed increase and require formatting from the camera to be use. Its take awhile for the camera to acknowledge the card but so far there is no compatibility issues, but after formatting it works fine. Speed is the same as a normal speed SD card for this camera.

Weaknesses: Not a well known brand for Flash Memory(Lexar, Sandisk are better brands)

Summary: I bought this card for my Dell Axim X30. I use the Axim for GPS navigation w/ a bluetooth GPS. The Axim has only 64 MB Memory - the Texas map alone is 120 MB!! I loaded the Maps on the SD Card- it works great. The access time from the card is really fast...my GPS works flawlessly.

I recommend the card for nayone who needs a high speed card for digital cameras or PDA's.

Strengths: Fast read and write time, affordable price

Weaknesses: Not the fastest in the market!

Summary: I was previously using a regular 256MB Kingston SD card for my Panasonic FZ-20 camera. There was significant lag time between shots, particular when I took several high resolution shots in a series and the built-in buffer memory was filled up. After I switch to the Elite Pro, the lag is practically eliminated. There is only a slight pause even when I take multiple shots or long video clips.

Strengths: Cheap price, good product, fast speed, large capacity.

Weaknesses: None!

Summary: I recently upgraded from my old 128mb card. Before, I would have to worry about how many photos I took, because it would fill up quickly. Now I can take as many as I want. I have noticed that this will record videos much faster, and will upload pictures to my computer in about 1/4 the time. This is not faster when you are taking photos, though. You get an incredible deal for the price, with a trusted brand name (Kingston) and a lifetime warranty, while getting large capacity and fast speed. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.

Weaknesses: None so far

Summary: This card is a great addition to my Canon Optura video camera, as well as my digital point-and-shoots. It definitely loads pictures faster, and appears to write the images faster after snapping a photo. With the rebates available, this thing is a steal! It even cost less than the regular 512MB Kingston SD card I just bought a couple months back!

Strengths: high speed; low price

Weaknesses: none

Summary: I use it with my 3MP digital camera. Compare to the SD card that came with my camera, this Kingston high speed card does not shorten the time between photos. My camera is a Canon SD110 and it is relatively slow between successive photos; it's unable to take advantage of the Kingston's high speed. But for the after-rebate price I paid, it's comforting to know my SD card is not the weak link in my camera.

Summary: This card is one of the faster ones on the market, so it's about as good as it gets. It's certainly faster than what I experieced with high speed CF and standard SD. You should be pleased when you put it up against the average memory card. It does the job, does it well, and pushes us towards the day when we'll finally have digital cameras that respond in real time.

Strengths: FAST!

Weaknesses: none

Summary: This card is amazing! Before, I had been using a standard SD card for my digital camera. But then I bought this. This card is faster not necessarily when you are taking pictures with your camera. I notice the speed difference only when I am transferring data from the card to my computer using a card reader. Then the data travels significantly faster than it did with my old SD card. This is the card to get. Kingston is a more reliable brand than SanDisk, so this card is worth it.

Weaknesses: None.

Summary: Get it for $31 after rebate. The write and read speed is about 50% faster than my Viking 256 SD. Works well with my Panasonic SD video Camera for I need a high capacity SD for recording good quality video. And it works with my Canon D100 camera. But, its performance is pretty much the same as my SanDisk 512 SD which is not marked as high speed SD.
