This micro SDHC card is the best in the US market. Samsung has developed a 32GB one but it is only available in Asia at the time of this writing. With that said, this is a good card. I bought it for my Blackberry Curve 8300. If you are going to use it for a Blackberry, make sure that you have the Blackberry OS 4.5 or later as it will not read the whole 16GB if you do not.

Even though this is a Class 2 card (the 16GB Class 4's, like the 32GB cards, are only available in Asia right now), it reads and writes fairly quickly. The card is fast enough to record and play videos on my Curve, and saving a couple minute video after shooting it literally takes seconds to write.

I have two minor gripes about this card, and they aren't that bad. One is the price. You can get an 8GB card for less than half of the price of this one. However, it is still "new" so that's the penalty for being an early adopter.

The other gripe I have is that with the Samsung reader (see the bundle Amazon sells with this card) will NOT format this card in anything other than FAT32. Now the Curve can't understand NTFS, so for me it's not a big deal, but for someone who may want to use this as take away storage, just be aware of that.

Other than that, I think this card is great. Also please note this card DOES come with an SD adapter. Don't let the Bulk Packaging fool you. If you have an SD card reader, you will not have to go out and buy a separate card reader for this. Save yourself the 5 bucks if you can. I hope this review was helpful.

The card arrived when they said it would. Took it out of the box and stuck it in my MP3 player, the Sansa Fuze (2GB model) and it recognized it immediately and I was able to start putting music on it (didn't need to format it). I put about 10GB of music on it which took roughly 2 hrs to load. After the initial upload of all my music. Adding a new album only took a couple of minutes. After I disconnect the Fuze from the computer it took approx 8-10 minutes to refresh the media library. I have the latest firmware update for the Fuze (maybe older firmware versions are slower - I don't know). The upload speeds didn't bother me because I'm only loading my whole library once and then its only a song/album or two at a time and that's only a few minutes. The card came with a SD adapter - so if you have a SD reader your set. I now have a 18GB MP3 Player!

I bought this card in February 2009 and it eventually failed by May 2009. I have of course only anecdotal evidence, but if you search around the Sandisk support forums and other places, you will find a lot of very upset customers complaining of the high failure rate of these Sandisk 16GB SDHC cards after a 2-3 months of use. To compound the problem, Sandisk only offers a 30 day return or refund period warranty on their flash memory cards which is atrocious in my opinion!! Unfortunately, most resellers here on Amazon only have a 30 day return policy as well assuming you have the product still in the original packaging. So overall, you are screwed if and WHEN the card does eventually fail. Thus, I recommend you not rely on this card to store important data like pictures and such. I unfortunately found this out the hard way. It just seems that this card is just not as reliable as advertised, and I am quite disappointed in the lack of at minimum one year manufacture's warranty for these cards by Sandisk. Buyer beware!!

BEWARE: This is what bulk packaging means for Sandisk: it has no warranty. Zilch. That's the answer I got from Sandisk. When I asked if the reseller was authorized to sell the product, they said they don't know, even though I provided an invoice from the seller.

I've bought CPUs, optical drives, hard disks in bulk packaging. All of them came with full warranty. This sounds like an outlet for cards that don't pass QA for Sandisk. I'm shocked that a name brand will do this.

I bought the SanDisk 16 GN Flash Memory card for use with my VHOLDR camera. To say that it took 3 months to fail is misleading. I only actually recorded on it a handful of times, maybe a dozen or so, before it failed. Extremely disappointed.

My memory card failed after 9 months. I contacted SanDisk to have it replaced under the one year warranty. I supplied a copy of the invoice etc. I was denied a replacement because a "bulk purchase" on Amazon did not prove that it was new in retail packaging. It WAS new in factory packaging so you should not fear purchasing here. However, you may want to consider a different brand when purchasing larger and more expensive memory cards as you are basically buying them without warranty. For the record I have had very good luck with Kingston. Below is the exact email verbage from SanDisk below the notice telling me it was "CASE CLOSED".

Dear XXXXXXX,

Thanks for emailing SanDisk Technical Support. It is our goal to make sure you have all the resources you need to get the most from your product.

As the memory card is freezing on multiple computers and format fails, it appears that the card is no longer functional.

However, please note that the terms of SanDisk's warranty policy apply to Brand New in Factory Sealed Retail packaged products only. From a review of your documentation it appears that the purchase of your Mobile Memory Card micro SDHC 16GB was packaged as bulk, with no indication that the Mobile Memory Cards micro SDHC 16GB was new in factory sealed retail packaging. We would, therefore, recommend that you seek service from Amazon.com as they may be entitled to warranty support for this product.

I bought this memory for my HTC Touch Pro. I wanted to sync my music with windows media center and backup another USB flash drive. This card should only be used for occasional file transfers. The class 2 card is painfully slow to sync anything. I would have gladly spend more money for a faster Class 6 microSDHC card if I was paying attention at the time of purchase.

I bought this six months ago (in January 2009) because it was the only 16GB micro SDHC card available. I needed it to dump as much of my music as I could onto my BlackBerry Bold. It has worked fine for the most part. However, if I were buying such a card today, I would search out at least a class 4 card and probably a class 6, both of which are now available here on Amazon (A-DATA MicroSDHC 16GB Class 6 Turbo With SD Adapter 16GUSDHC6 (Black);Sandisk 16GB Ultra microSDHC CLASS 4 / MobileMate micro Reader (SDSDQY-016G-S11M, Retail Package)).

To the extent that it is a problem, my BlackBerry scans this class 2 card when I do a restart -- and is sluggish during that time -- so because I have almost the entire card filled up, it can take the BB a good five minutes to scan the card because a class 2 card has a slower read speed. That's a good five minutes of unwanted sluggishness after a restart. A faster class 4 or 6 card would reduce that time considerably.

Bought this to upgrade my EVO 4G Android smartphone and have no complaints, works perfectly. Good value for the money (and now they're even cheaper!). Note when I bought mine it was delivered directly from Amazon (which I wanted as there are counterfeit cards out there).
