I tested this device under lab conditions. here are the results:

Testing conditions:
interface: Kingston USB card reader with USB 2 high speed PC interface.
Tested with and without the supplied uSD to SD card interface.

Write speed: 12MB/Sec.
Read speed: 18MB/Sec.

Capacity: 8,010,072,064 Bytes (after formatting).
Formatted file system: FAT32.

this uSD may be fast enough for full HD recording in real time, since it has a 12MB/sec write speed which is 96Mbit/Sec.

I bought two of these for an Android phone (Captivate) and tablet (Nook Color). The Nook Color is running Android (CM9) on the card itself, while the Captivate is using the card for extra storage. So far, both are running just fine without a problem.

CrystalDiskMark 3.0 benchmark using an IOGear GFR304SD USB 3.0 card reader:

Transcend microSDHC 8GB Class 10
Sequential: 22.717 MB/s read, 21.559 MB/s write
Read 512KB: 21.947 MB/s read, 1.037 MB/s write
Random 4KB (QD=1): 4.284 MB/s read, 0.010 MB/s write
Random 4KB (QD=32): 4.498 MB/s read, 0.010 MB/s

(I've also posted a snapshot of CDM & ATTO)

For comparison, here's the CrystalDiskMark 3.0 benchmark of the Class 6 version using the same reader:

Transcend microSDHC 8GB Class 6
Sequential: 19.044 MB/s read, 9.785 MB/s write
Random 512KB: 18.709 MB/s read, 1.578 MB/s write
Random 4KB (QD=1): 7.014 MB/s read, 0.021 MB/s write
Random 4KB (QD=32): 7.008 MB/s read, 0.021 MB/s write

As shown in the benchmark, this Class 10 is fast when it comes to large sequential access, but is a little worse than the Class 6 version when it comes to smaller random access. I think this card is perfect for a camera or another device that primarily read/writes large files. In my case though, since I'm using it on my phone and tablet where small random read/writes are more likely, I probably would have been better off with the older Transcend Class 6 card.

I have been buying a lot of Transcend memory products and have to say they are the best bang for the buck. I've seen some reviews that complain about speed and reliability but I have seen the same complaints about ALL the other manufacturers. Having been a computer tech for 16 years I can't find any fault with these.

I bought this card as an upgrade for my Android phone (HTC Aria). While in my phone, whenever I would transfer data to/from the card or even use apps installed to the card, the card would randomly disconnect and wouldn't be usable without a reboot. I have tried 3 other cards in my phone and none of them go nuts like this. The card seemed to work fine when inserted into my computer's SD card reader, so it might be some kind of compatibility issue.

Also, as the other reviewer mentioned, the speeds were unimpressive. I generally got about 6-7 MB/s writes, and the maximum speed I could eke out via any means (in ATTO) was 9 MB/s. Class 10 is supposed to indicate a *minimum* of 10 MB/s for sustained writes. If it ain't Class 10, don't write Class 10 on the box.

I've got the 4GB Transcend MicroSD card with adapter for my PowerShot to remember that my Powershot can only handle up to 2 GB, what a bummer.
I had it sitting around for a month and then got a Bluetooth Speaker with a tf card slot (microSD) and now I load it up with music and use it for that purpose.

Contents:
Plastic Case
MicroSD card
Adapter

The transfer rate was fine. I added a bunch of files and filled it to the max and there was no issues with card capacity.

I have had no issues so far and that's after a month of storage and around two months of music usage.

Now I just enjoy my music without draining my phone's battery.

Overall, a card that has not failed me yet!

Hope this has been somewhat helpful to ya! If not, leme know what you wish to know.

I don't have much brand loyalty when it comes to card based media. My Android phone's gallery and other functions were really slow with my out-of-the-box 4GB memory card. With this Transcend 8GB card, I can load podcasts, audio books and tons of high resolutions photos en masse and with blazing speed. My phone can now take pictures, write them to the card, and get back to taking pictures again in a few tenths of a second, compared to what took about a second previously.

So if your phone feels slow when you're using the SD card, try getting something least class 8, but the high the better. I'm definitely recommending this.

I bought this 16 gig class 10 card for my android phone to add additional capacity. I specifically wanted the fastest class I could get to aid in opening files, watching video content and to aid in saving photos and HD video. This card has functioned beautifully since purchase.

I have used micro SD cards for years. They are still the most convenient external storage solution for smartphones and other small electronic cameras. A micro SD card like this one that comes with an SD adapter is also a great way to transfer your files from the card to a proper computer.

I've gotten several of these Transcend micro SD cards, and have used for several purposes. One of them I use with the included adapter inside my Canon DSLR camera. It's good way of having the flexibility of directly transferring the photos you take either to the computer or to an Android phone/tablet. The speed of the card is pretty good for my purposes, including shooting HD video. It seems to be indeed a proper Class 10 SD card.

The second card I use with my Nextbook Windows 8.1 tablet. It's a very good way of expanding the limited internal storage that came with my tablet. The card was easy to install, and it worked without a flaw with the Nextbook.

I was also impressed with the packaging for this card. It is incredibly easy to open, and the inside packaging doubles as a storage case for the card and the adapter. This comes in really handy - micro SD cards are incredibly easy to lose.

An excellent SD card choice for the money! It performs all of the tasks that I need with my music and pictures at a fast pace on my Samsung Galaxy SII.
