This item came in a package with my Pentax *ist DS - my first digital camera - and I wondered how others rated it and what the replacement cost would be. <shrug> Too bad I am the first to review it.

While Kingston has a mediocre reputation, I have had absolutely no problems with my 1GB card, it has worked flawlessly for four months and many hundreds of pictures.

The working volume (after formatting, device files etc.) is 980M and this is enough to allow me to take 94 shots of EXTREMELY high quality - ~2000x3000 pixels and ~10.2M per shot - or - over 2000 shots at the lowest quality! I would not hesitate to go on a two week vacation with only two of these cards.

The card physically is not much larger than a postage stamp and has a tiny slide that allows you to "lock" it, so that no pictures will be erased.

I use an inexpensive card reader (USB 2.0) and can load 500MB into my computer in under ten minutes, so the speed is good.

I am very pleased.

Steve

I bought this card and a 150x 1GB secure digital card for video on my Canon SD-450. I noticed no difference when taking pictures or video when using this 'slower' card. For the price I paid for the higher speed card I could have bough two more of these.

I want to emphasize this is just with my SD-450. Results may differ for different people (or newer cameras?).

While it's not one of the newer-better-faster models of SD, if you're looking to store data, use it in an MP3 player, etc. You simply can't beat the price-to-performance ratio on this little guy.

It works perfectly on my new SD-based MP3 player for skip-free performance. Transfer time was negligible (don't get me wrong it took a few minutes to transfer 1 GB of data, but not more than I'd expect for a 1GB {!} transfer; maybe 8-12 minutes? Probably less...)

Took me a while to figure out that if you format it as FAT the player only sees 512MB of space. Whereas if you format it FAT32 it sees 1GB, and uses a few MB for formatting purposes, giving somewhere around 982 MB free. More than enough for hours and hours of MP3 play time.

I'd assume this card would work well in basic cameras up to 2-3 megapixels. For higher megapixels you'll probably want to step up to a slightly faster card. But keep it Kingston. They make good products at excellent price points.

I've used their desktop valueram for a while without issue, and their SD cards are certainly no disappointment. I rate this a must-buy. Aside from which it's the only card I've seen no really negative reviews for from any source I've checked online (unlike some other "name brands" like SanDisk, Lexar, etc.), hence purchasing this one. Seriously shop it around and go to a few comparison sites that use ratings and reviews. The Kingston cards consistently get good reviews (or at least lack bad reviews), whereas the other brands are about 50/50, 60/40, etc.

----------

Addendum:
with a couple months' perspective: again, the card holds up well. I purchased the basic low-speed model due to price (appx $27/ea at the time).

I have been using this card in a Palm T/X to store photos, program files, and mpeg4 video files. It's worked well with no problems.

The cards does everything it's supposed to. 1 GB seemed like a lot when I purchased it, but now I'm back, looking for more memory...anyone who has just upgraded their camera and is going to be shooting in higher resolutions (especially if they're considering shooting in RAW format) might want to consider a larger card.

This Kingston 1 GB Secure Digital Flash Card ( SD/1GB ) (Retail Package) is on the low end of capacity being sold right now. However, it's such a great value. No need to worry about SDHC compatibility here. Works with all SD devices and computers with appropriate memory card readers.

The only knock on this card is that it is somewhat slow. However, at this price it's still great as a spare.

This card is pretty widely compatible and will work in your Kindle and your Wii alike. Like I said, pretty much any camera that accepts SD memory will accept this one, though there are better and higher capacity cards available for newer cameras with wider support.

So if you have a really high end camera you will want to spend more for a bigger one. But if you need an extra memory card for your Wii, digital camera (Canon, Nikon) or PDA, this is a good one to get.

Enjoy!

This is a name-brand, reasonably priced and perfectly adequate SD card. I wondered if it would keep up with my camera, especially for movies...and it does. No discernable time-lag. It is a good option for any SD camera. I am quite satisfied.
