From the Manufacturer
Because digital cameras are now designed to take increasingly high quality photos, there is a greater need for storage space to store the high-resolution files. The SanDisk Standard SD Memory Card lets you take numerous photos without fear of running out of space. With this card, you won't miss those special moments like a baby's first steps, a child's first dance recital, or a treasured vacation moment.
Storage for Music, Video, and Data
In addition to digital cameras, many portable media players feature SD card slots for storing music, video, and data. By using the Standard SD, you'll have space for all your tunes, TV shows, movies, and more.
Standard SDs are also great for moving files between computers, cameras, and other gadgets.
Reliable and Built to Withstand Harsh Conditions
With no moving parts, the Standard SD provides reliable performance. The card is also less susceptible to fluctuations in temperature.
SanDisk designed their Standard SD Cards to withstand extreme operating conditions. The cards have an operating shock rating of 2,000Gs, equivalent to a ten-foot drop (based on SanDisk internal testing). No matter where your travels take you, you'll always be able to capture the most memorable moments.

Top Customer Reviews
FOR KODAK OWNERS: In July 2006, I replaced a SanDisk regular SD card like this one with a SanDisk Ultra II card for my Kodak DX7590, because I was hoping that it would allow my camera to write high-quality 5MP pictures faster. But to my surprise, it timed exactly the same. So I emailed Kodak, and this was their response: "We appreciate your interest in high speed memory for your digital camera. Our cameras are designed to operate, write and read SD cards at set voltage speeds. Therefore, there is no advantage to using faster memory in Kodak cameras."
So if you use a Kodak dock or USB cable to transfer images from a Kodak camera to your computer, this standard SanDisk card is all you need...there's no advantage to paying extra for a high-speed card like the Ultra II. However, if you use a card reader to get images from the SD card to your computer, and speed is important to you, then it might be worthwhile to pay a little more for the Ultra II since read and write speeds through the card reader could be substantially faster.
Unfortunately, most USB media card readers (including Sandisk's own as well as Belkin ones) cannot deal with capacity larger than 1GB yet. So be *VERY* careful if you plan to use this 2GB SD card with a USB card reader: if you do want to do it, make sure you only read from it, not write to it, or you would risk corrupting the entire memory which would require reformatting. (Unfortunately, because most OS's write some extra system information to disks all the time, it's extremely unlikely you can avoid any writes when you insert this SD card into a USB card reader.)
While compatibility with my devices seems good so far, what I don't like is the card's speed. It's actually quite slow. Sure, this is a standard-speed card, the cheapest model in Sandisk's SD lineup. Still, it feels slower than my xD-Picture card, which itself is not a speed demon by any measure. So even though you get a lot of capacity (2GB formatted in FAT32), filling it up could take a painfully long time, even over USB 2.0 high-speed.
In the end, I think this is a good value simply because it's cheap. I've filled mine with MP3s and JPEGs and nowadays use it with my portable GPS. For MP3 playback, the speed is not a big issue, but when viewing large JPEG files, it can be a little trying to my patience.
I have no complaints about either of my SanDisk cards, but don't take my word for it, check out the News and Reviews link on the product page for yourself. While each supplier brand has its strengths and weaknesses, when you add everything up together SanDisk gives you the best bang for your buck.
I usually keep an SD card in my phone at all times to store everything from MP3s, videos, eBooks, photos, MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint files, and even a couple Palm applications.
This additional 2GB capacity not only allows you to store around 500 songs or photos, but even a compressed 1-hour video if you want to rip your favorite DVD or TV show.
The additional capacity offered by these cards begs the question as to why you would want to pay $200 (or more) for a stand-alone flash-enabled MP3 player when you can get a phone-camera-Palm Pilot in one convergent device.
Of course, this card is versatile enough to use for general flash storage tasks when coupled with an inexpensive USB reader, or to transfer files between desktops and laptops, digital cameras, whatever.
SanDisk offers rebates every few months so even if you don't need a card right now, put this on your wishlist and check Amazon frequently to take advantage of the next saving opportunity.
