Experience: 8 Days

Strengths: Large capacity, price

Weaknesses: Speed

Summary: I bought it for my digital camera. It can holds over 1000 pictures if set at 1024 by 768 pixels and low compression ratio. Now I can travel without bringing my laptop. The downsize is the speed to save and transfer is a little slow. But given the capacity and price, it's worth waiting a few more seconds. Highly recommended!

Strengths: Great price ($89.88 after $30 mail-in rebate from J&R Music World). Excellent storage capacity, even for 7mp camera.

Weaknesses: None so far, except for download time when shooting multiple exposures.

Summary: I am using this in my Pentax Optio 750Z seven megapixel camera. For JPEG at maximum pixels and maximum quality it will hold 246 pictures. At one step down in pixels and average quality it will hold 703 pictures! Movie times on this camera range from 15 minutes at 640x480 and 30 fps to 47 minutes at 320x240 and 15 fps. When shooting multiple exposures at the maximum megapixel and quality settings the camera only handles 11 to 12 exposures before needing to download to the disk, and the download requires several seconds. This can be improved by using lower quality settings.

Strengths: Excellent price ($95 at Staples.com after price match), lots of storgage capacity, fast access times for this class.

Weaknesses: Not as fast as the type II counterpart, if that is required for high-end digital cameras.

Summary: (Edited September 17th by dbruntz) Excellent for Pocket PC to support full-length compressed Video, audio (e.g. MP3s), Mobile Phone memory, digital cameras, and other devices not required extremely fast read/write times. Good warrenty (5 years) and shock protection (can withstand drop from 10 feet).

Strengths: Very compatible with both my camera and my sandisk SD drive. Came through when I needed to go a live show. Overall, memory access time was almost simaltaneous.

Weaknesses: None, so far...

Summary: Nothing bad can really be said about my 1 GB SD digital card. I put the card to use right after taking it out of the case and it has yet to fail me since. A good purchase overall, but I did pay about $135 for it, which seemed like a good deal at the time. It is worth it for the $94 or so, I see it going for at this moment.

Strengths: Cheap and large capacity

Weaknesses: slow

Summary: This is a very good secure card from sandisk, and with 1GB capacity pretty much is enough for any long vacation.
and seems also very reliable, pictures are good when transfering to a PC. the only problem so far is taht transfering is a little slow, so if you need transfer large quality of pictures, better giving it enough time.

Have not experienced any problems.

Strengths: Now able to download several working maps for both land and water for my Garmin handled PDA. Wonderful for making sure you can lock in the data so no overwrites or erasing can be done.

Weaknesses: Wish it were 5.0 GB!

Summary: I have used other cards and found SanDisks to be most reliable. Great for pictures as well. The map data is large, and I expected no problems with formatting as I had with other disks.

Strengths: It just works the way it should, what more do you want from a product

Weaknesses: I found none, it was at least as fast as my 256 meg Transend card. But I have a liitle 3.2 mega pixel camera.

Summary: I paid $70 including shipping for a card that will hold more pictures than I'll ever take at one time, it does not get any better than that.

Weaknesses: Can't do the video recording.

Summary: A lot of Memory and storage for this memory! Can't do the video recording. Overall, I am Okay with it! If the price can drop more down, I will suggest to buy it. Otherwise, it is too expensive now.

Experience: 3 Months

Strengths: price, size

Weaknesses: none that I know of

Summary: Used it for a few months with my Toshiba e800. Didn't have a problem with it and worked as expected.

More recently, I purchased a Minolta Z3 digital camera. I was surprised to find that this 'inexpensive card' would enable my camera to write at 640x480x30fps in fine mode. The manual says that in 'fine mode' data is written at 1500KB/sec. Though I was taking movies for over a minute at a time (up to two minutes), the camera kept on recording which means that the SD card was able to keep up.
