Storage Capacity Table

Memory cards should be purchased according to how high the resolution or DPI (dots per inch) of your digital camera is (i.e. how many megapixels it has), and how many pictures you plan on taking at a time. Transcend have provided the following graph to assist you in buying an appropriate capacity card for your camera:

Storage Capacity Camera Type
2MP 3MP 4MP 5MP 6MP 8MP 10MP
4GB 4550 3412 2048 1638 1280 1048 816
8GB 9100 6824 4096 3276 2560 2096 1632

*The "File size" represented in the graph below assumes that the highest resolution (DPI) your camera supports is used and that pictures are stored in standard JPEG format. 
The actual number of pictures you can take will vary depending on your digital camera's resolution and compression settings, composition (complexity) of the images taken, as well as lighting and exposure factors.

I purchased the 16GB version (Transcend 16GB SDHC CARD with Compact Card Reader) of this package a few months ago. The card was meant to be used in my Canon S5 camera. But I soon discovered that it works extremely well with the included card reader as an USB flash drive (much larger and faster than my SanDisk 4GB Cruzer Micro). So I ended up using it mainly for data backup and transfer between my laptop and desktop computers. The card has proven to be fast and reliable in the past 2-3 months of daily usage.

As first I was skeptical about Transcend's speed rating of 'class 6', which means minimum 6MB/S when writing. But my own benchmark results (see Customer Images) showed that this card is capable of writing typical photo files at 10.5MB/S - nearly twice its specified minimum data transfer rate. Just for reference, the Sandisk 8GB EXTREME III claims a faster speed of 20MB/S, but it costs about twice as much.

Considering its low cost and respectable speed, this Transcend card is an excellent buy. But please make sure that you order it from a reputable vendor only. Several reviewers who ordered the 16GB version from TheMemStore complained that they received some no-name card reader (instead of the Transcend DRS5). This may explain why some people have encountered problems when using this card.

[update on June 8, 2009]
I have purchased a total of three Transcend SDHC cards (two 16GB + one 8GB) in the past 10 months.

Although the card is fine, which I the main reason I purchased, the reader doesn't appear to be properly recognized on any USB port on either my desktop or laptop, both running XP. Both computers 'see' the drive and I can navigate to the files on the card, however, if I try to copy any files to the card, I get a message indicating the card is locked...which it isn't...I've set the lock on the card to both positions several times to make sure. The card reads fine in the built in SD reader on my laptop and through a SanDisk reader plugged into my desktop.

I tried downloading the driver and app from the Transcend website but it aborts because it doesn't 'see' that the reader is attached...tried it with the card in and with the card out...same result.

If the main reason you're buying this combo is the nice little reader, you might think twice.

Needed a larger capacity SD-HC memory card for my digital camera. Saw this card/reader combo on Amazon for a great price, easily half of what I could have bought locally. Very happy with the card so far -- NOTE: The only problem with these high-capacity cards is that they apparently can't be read with a normal SD reader.

I bought this for use in a canon hf100 camera and so far it works fine. I'm buying a second one. I like the card reader. It makes it much easier to transfer files to my computer as opposed to using the usb cable that came with the camera. I can also plug the card reader in my ps3 and play the video directly to it.

I have purchased multiples of both the 8g and 16g Transcend SDHC cards with the bonus reader. Simply put, they deliver as promised. Fast and reliable. I use them with my Canon Rebel XSI.

One vendor I ordered from sent me a Digitalmatrex USB reader instead of the Transcend USB reader. The Digitalmatrex USB reader was less than half the speed of the Transcend USB reader (with a Transcend 16g card). For example, "Test Card" from Lexar diagnostic tools took over an hour with the Digitalmatrex SDHC 150x Card reader, less than 30 minutes with the Transcend USB reader (same 16g card). Do note, the name is indeed Digitalmatrex, this is not a typo. I recommend the Lexar Image Rescue suite too, but that is another review :-)

To their credit, the vendor refunded me in total (item and shipping) for their incorrect shipping. If you look around a little at Transcend reviews on Amazon you will infer who the vendor is.

The card has a lifetime guarantee, the reader two years. You really can not go wrong with this combo.

I was a little dubious about buying this card and reader after reading some of the reviews. I usually buy SanDisk products but this card had both the features and the price that I was looking for.

I bought the Transcend 8GB SDHC Card to use in my Samsung SC-HMX20C High Definition camcorder. Although the camera comes with 8GB internal memory I wanted to have more since I plan on using it for video taping wild birds in the field and might not have access to my laptop for downloading the videos. It was essential that I have a Class 6 card since I will be recording in High Definition and will need that kind of speed.

This card worked perfectly in my camcorder, giving me another 70 minutes of HD recording time. When I plugged the reader and card into my laptop it was recognized immediately. I then downloaded the files to my desktop and viewed them right away. What more could you ask for? I liked it so much that I bought a second one, this time the 16GB. I have tested both of my cards in the field and they live up to my expectations.
