From the Manufacturer
In order to meet growing consumer demand for storing lots of pictures, movies, and music, a dependable high-speed and greater capacity memory card is indispensable. Transcend's SDHC cards use brand name NAND Flash chips and premium quality components to ensure robust, long-life durability and excellent performance. For added convenience, Transcend currently offers a combo package that includes a SDHC card together with a Compact Card Reader S5 to make transferring data easier than ever. Just slide the SDHC card into S5 and plug it directly into any USB 2.0 (or 1.1) port and is capable of data transfer rates up to 480Mb/s. The reader works just like a standard USB flash drive, and supports the latest SDHC standard for hi-end large capacity memory cards. The Card Reader S5 also has a sleek design with industry-leading thinnest size that makes it compact and portable, with rounded edges for easy handling. Transcend's SDHC + SD/MMC Card Reader S5 is the perfect combination for your mobile lifestyle.
|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:
*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.
Top Customer Reviews
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.

I have purchased a total of three Transcend SDHC cards (two 16GB + one 8GB) in the past 10 months.Read more ›
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.
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 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.
