5.0 out of 5 stars The Fast and the Spacious, June 9, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kingston 8 GB microSDHC Class 4 Flash Memory Card SDC4/8GBET (Personal Computers)
The Kingston 8 GB microSDHC Card works flawlessly with all my memory card readers: Kingston Mobilite, Kingston microSD Card Reader, and SD Card Reader. Windows (XP) has no trouble recognizing it as a removable drive.

- Device Compatibility
Using a microSDHC to MS PRO Duo Adapter, I am able to use the Kingston 8GB microSD in my Sony Cybershot DSC-W170 Camera -- it works like a charm; the camera has no trouble capturing pictures and videos (at a frame frate of 30 fps and a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels). All of my devices, such as my Garmin nüvi 360 and my HP iPAQ 111, are able to recognize the full capacity of the SD card.

- microSDHC Format
microSD cards of 4GB or larger are known more specifically as microSDHC cards. This 8GB Kingston card is therefore a microSDHC card. Beware that some older devices are NOT compatible with the microSDHC format. Such devices will only work with microSD cards with capacities of 2GB (such as this Kingston 2GB microSD card) or less.

(The technical specification for the SDHC/microSDHC format supports capacities ranging from 4GB - 32 GB. microSDHC cards of 16GB, such as this Kingston 16GB microSDHC card, is the largest capacity available as of this writing.)

- Class 4 Speed
This SD card is rated class 4 (data transfer rate: 4 MByte/sec, or 32 mbps) - sufficiently fast for the majority of electronics. A decidedly small number of electronics, most notably some camcorders and high-end cameras, require a class 6 SD card (the fastest transfer rate as of this writing). Transcend makes one that's rated class 6.

- Frustration-Free Packaging
Kudos to Amazon for their Frustration-Free Packaging efforts in using only recyclable packaging materials and in keeping the amount of packaging used to a bare minimum. As a giant in the e-tailing industry, Amazon's move will no doubt serve as an impetus for getting the rest of the e-tailers to follow suit!

---
The Kingston memory card is compatible with devices that support the microSDHC format. It is a fast (class 4) memory card with plenty of storage. Definitely recommended if the specs meet your needs!

Hi James,
When I reviewed the product (8GB SDHC), it was made under the 8GB SDHC page (which is evident from the Amazon Verified Purchase label under my review). But Amazon has since combined the 4GB and the 8GB reviews into the same product page, which is unfortunate.

Amazon did include the line "This review is from: Kingston 8 GB microSDHC Class 4 Flash Memory Card SDC4/8GBET (Personal Computers)," which is easy to miss. I hope other shoppers will be as astute as you are in recognizing that this review is for a 8GB SDHC, not a 4GB SDHC.

I want to say that i recently ordered this memory stick because it said it would fit my Olympus 550WP camera, but it didn't. I have discovered that older cameras can't use cards with larger than 2 GB memory,so PLEASE READ your manual before buying it. But i will say, QUICKBUY1 was very prompt in sending the order out, and also very very prompt in receiving it back , refunding my whole amount including shipping fees. THey are great to work with and I recommend them highly for their customer service.

Sorry to hear about your misadventure with this SDHC card. You are correct in stating that older cameras (and for that matter other older devices) can't use cards with capacities larger than 2GB. Older devices use microSD (or the standard size SD) cards, not the newer microSDHC (or the standard size SDHC) cards.
