"SanDisk... Why Pay Double?"

When it comes to memory cards, I have found SanDisk to be a fast, economical and reliable product. I recently purchased an 8GB version for us in my Sony camcorder as the one that came with it was full and because these SD cards are so cheap nowadays, I thought I would just keeping getting new cards as each one filled up.

The card that came with the camcorder was a 8GB Fujiflim SDHC which after a bit of searching around, I discovered I could replace for around £16.75 on Amazon, whereas the SanDisk comes in at £7.99 which was the cheapest I could find.

I wasn't sure how good the SanDisk card would be because it was rated 'class 4' and the one already in the camera was 'class 6'. But the only difference I noted was a slightly longer delay after taking some video footage as the files were transferred across to the card.

I have found that the 8GB card is more than adequate for my uses that involves taking some footage of my Clavinova Piano playing for Youtube from time to time and shots when I am out and about.

SanDisk also produces a micro SD card that I use in my phone to store photographs. This card is tiny in comparison, I would say less than a quarter of the size of the standard size SD card. However, I have discovered that I could buy an adapter kit for £8.45 (Amazon) for the 8GB size (that includes one micro card and the adapter that looks like a full size card). I simply slide the micro disk into the adapter and I can then use this in my camcorder too and I find no deterioration in the performance.

As I do not have a card-reading slot on my desktop computer, I have a card reader which I plug into the USB and then slide the memory card in. It then pops up like any other external storage device where I can load the photos or videos on to the main drive. My laptop, and many modern PCs today comes with a built in card-reader slot, so there is no need for a separate card reader.

Overall, I must say that I am pleased with the performance of the SanDisk, having used them for quite a while now and whilst I'm no expert, I cannot see why I would need to buy a more expensive card.

Thanks for reading.

    I agree why pay more for something that does the same job?
