Well I ordered this card to see if I could improve the "recording" speed of my wife's 2 year old Kodak DX7630. I had been using a couple of 512MB cards, also a couple years old, which would take 7-10sec between photos.

I got the new card and tried it, no big change!? I then plugged the card in to my card reader on my Dell to see if there was a big speed difference between it and the old cards. Nope!?

So now I get online and start checking. I find a speed utility, "HD Tach", and check both old and new cards. Results: 7mb/s for my 2 year old cards, 13mb/s for the new one. This is far below the 18mb/s (120X) rating (150kb/s x 120).

So I start checking info online (which I should have done earlier) to see if I'm missing something. It appears that you better have a fairly high end and/or new camera to get the best results from these "high speed" cards. The speed bottleneck may be the hardware on the camera, which I think would take some deep research to determine on Kodak cameras. I also checked in to why the card reader wasn't moving data very fast. Turns out you need a "high speed, USB 2.0" card reader to get 18mb/s. An ordinary USB 2.0 reader will only do around 66x or 10mb/s, as far as I can tell.

So what did I learn (and you should know): Your camera may not be able to move data as fast as this card, check first. It might be able to use it, but that doesn't mean at full speed. Your card reader probably won't move data as fast as this card can. So in the end, maybe I will get a new camera and be surprised at the speed, but right now I'm not really noticing a big difference, my bad. If I had something that would read/write at the max speed of the card, I would probably be impressed!

Just a note, check my math and do your own research, I was wrong once before, ;)

Bought the Ultimate 2GB 120X card as a deal with the Canon A570IS. Set my Canon SD400 camera for continuous shooting and held button for 1min fixed focused on a stop watch. With the Ultimate SD was able to take 95 shots, and the camera frequently showed busy. With my Kingston 2GB Elite 50X card was able to take 121 shots in 1min and camera never showed busy. Both cards were low level formated in the camera. Got similar results using the A570IS, but didn't count the shots. I'm very dissapointed the Ultimate performed slower than the Elite! Maybe a just got a bum Ultimate card? Also got the same good results with a Elite 1GB card. Maybe I should have just stuck with Elite, or another brand...

Just got this card for my Nikon D80. Super fast, holds a lot of images. Would buy another five of them. Nothing new to add, just my vote of confidence.

This card is the 2 GB Ultimate 120X It has a tested write speed 120 times 150kb/sec which exceeds 18 mb per second. Frequently card manufacturers advertise their read speed, which is always much faster. Analyze your file size for pictures you take and the speed in mb/sec will tell you how many of those pictures you can store in one second.

That impacts time between pictures. For cameras, write speed is the most important, but the speed rating of the card doesn't necessarily tell you its write speed. For music players and other devices, read speed may be more important. So you might choose a different card depending on whether you intend to use it to play music or take pictures. I'm currently shopping for SD cards for a camera with the capability to shoot 3 pictures per second with large file sizes. In order not to slow the camera down, I need a fast card. I have done some research and realized that the reviews here aren't necessarily even related to this particular card, but are for all different sizes and speeds of Kingston cards. Kingston has been in the memory business for a long time and they are conservative in their ratings. This card is #1 on my list right now because of its tested write speed.

OMG, this card is SOOOO much faster than others I have tried in my digital camera. There is no wait time at all that I can notice, and it stores approx. 556 photos with my Canon 8 megapixel camera. Paying a bit more for the speed of this card is definitely worth it!

I've had this card for just over a month. It's amazing how much space there is. In fact, I've never filled it up..

After shooting several days of photos and video, I download onto my computer. I've done this about 4 times so far. It's great to have such a large capacity. The Kingston seems like a very good product.
