I purchased this to get the free super saver shipping so it worked out to cost me about $1.50 instead of paying for shipping. However, estimated delivery was around 15 days? Doh! ;-)

Anyway, I wanted a card that was at least a class 4 to record HD video with my pansonic point and shoot camera. I've seen a lot of people argue about what the class of the card means and it's actual transfer rates so I thought I'd be safe getting one thats in the middle of the road. There are 4 classes, starting with 2 and ending at 6. Supposedly getting a class 6 doesn't always mean that it will perform better than say a class 2. The old way of classing these cards was to use the X factor. A 133X card would transfer about 20megs a second and so on but I've seen a 4gb usb stick that was 150x that transfered over 40megs a second. Even that way of classing the cards failed to hold up to the reality of benchmarks. So, if I'm going to write a review I may as well make it worth reading by doing some psudo-scientific tests and compare it to an older Crucial 4gb Class 6 card I purchased about 5 months ago. Technically the Crucial with it's mighty class 6 rating should blow the HP out of the water. We'll see.

To do the test, I installed the latest Sisoftware Sandra 2010 benchmarking software and gave these card the once over. Sandra is considered by many to be one of the best benchmarking software programs around! I conducted the test on my brand new Asus 1000HE Netbook which has a really nice SDHC card reader built in and running windows 7 premium. This is the true definition of a "real world test".

Sisandra comes with a large catalog of SDHC cards they tested themselves and this allows you to compare the results showing the best ones all the way down to the poorest performer.

HP's 8GB SDHC card appears to be one of the better buys at the time of this review, as far as price/performance/capacity is concerned. In my case, it fulfills the task assigned - store a large number of photos for an electronic picture frame to display. However, its relatively low write speed may NOT make it suitable if the intended use was in a camera taking large 'rapid fire' shots.


I would like to note that I did not test the card with a camera but it's stated 'Class 4' speed class, which is the equivalent of a 26x speed rating should guarantee a MINIMUM of 4MB/s.

Unlike the 'x' ratings, the speed class ratings are NOT certified by an independent body so, more or less, you will have to decide whether you trust the card's maker. It so happens that I DID test the card myself and I found that I could copy 1.6 GB worth of photos in about 5 minutes. This is 5MB/s for writing on the card for the first time, indicating that the Class 4/26x claim is honest.

Practically, if you are going to use this card in a camera, depending on the quality of the pics you are taking, you may or may not be happy with its performance. At 12 megapixels, a 100% quality JPG would produce a 2-3 MB file so, without even counting the overhead, your camera will spend about half second, possibly more to write to the card which may or may not be in line with your own expectation. For better performance, look for a higher 'class' number 133x/Class 20, for example, should support 20 MB/s or writing up to 10 12-megapixel JPG photo files per second.


The card comes formatted as FAT32 and my Vista Enterprise computer was able to write to it.

I was attracted to this HP 16 GB Class 4 SDHC Flash Memory Card partially because it is priced lower than other cards in the same class (such as the SanDisk Ultra 16 GB Class 4 and Kingston 16 GB Class 4). Another reason being that it is from Hewlett Packard, a company once known for cutting-edge technology and inventions.

Benchmark results (see my uploaded screenshot in Customer Images section) showed that the read-speed of this card is reasonable. It stays at about 18-19MB/s, similar to other class-4 cards. Its write-speed, on the other hand, is highly dependent on the file size:

- For smaller file size of 1MB, its write speed is only 3.7MB/s
- For larger file size of 5MB, its write speed is faster at 7.9MB/s
- For huge files (1GB), its write speed peaked at 10.1MB/s

For a SDHC card to be marketed as a 'class-4', it just needs to achieve a sequential write speed of 4MB/s under best-case scenario. The speed of this HP class-4 card is way above its requirement. A less honest company would probably market it as a 'class-10' card instead.

Considering its lower price, this HP card is a great value comapred to other class-4 cards.
To the average consumer, however, either an honestly rated class-4 or class-10 card will perform just the same in a digital camera. This is because the frame rate of a typical point-and-shoot camera is limited to under 1 fps.
