I've had good luck with Transcend SD cards from Amazon before, so after two larger capacity and higher speed SD cards failed to work in the Optoma and had to be returned, I chose to go with it, trusting its claim to work with all SDHC devices.
Turned out to be a good choice at a good price, received in frustration-free packaging less than 18 hours after I ordered it via Amazon Prime 2 day shipping. Class 6 isn't quite as fast as Class 10 alternatives, but I'm not noticing any slowdown in using it on the Optoma compared to the also excellent but more costly Sandisk Class 10 45Mb/S non-micro 32GB SDHC card I also bought recently for use in the Sony DSC-RX100 20.2 MP Exmor CMOS Sensor Digital Camera with 3.6x Zoom.
To test the speed of the card I tested Transcend 8 GB microSDHC Class 6 Flash Memory Card by copying a large set of mp3 files totalling 638916 Kbytes. I measured CPU time and clock time. For comparison I including numbers for copying the same set of files from and to hard disk of my computer, and to USB2 memory stick.
I ran each test twice, and the numbers you see is the average of the two tests.
✔ Transcent microSDHC : 1.482s (CPU time), 1:33.97 (clock time)
✔ USB2: 1.358s (CPU time), 1:23.53 (clock time)
✔ Hard Drive: 0.703s (CPU time), 0:10.06 (clock time)
Good price, card works well, I would buy it again.
Ali Julia review
Well, 5 months or so later, I was installing a new ROM onto my Nexus 1, and got many errors. I tried doing wipes upon wipes, to no avail. XDA members tried to help unbrick me, again, to no avail. Having given up on that phone, I used this card to replace a 4gb car in my "backup" phone. Well..that phone started freezing up every time I took a photo, couldn't cache songs from Slacker reliably, and even Swiftkey's language module was acting up.
Lucky for me, this MicroSD started shifting to read-only before it completely died. I was able to do a complete backup, and my Nexus 1 is now working great, with a Sandisk Class 2 (which is somehow way faster) instead.
If anyone is wondering
- The item was direct from Amazon, and I verified that it is authentic
- I tried contacting Transcend tech support, and WOW are they beyond worthless! The hold times were 40+ minutes the first time I called (ended up hanging up), and 25+ the next time I called a few days later (also hung up). When I did get through, the human operator said they would send me an RMA email, but ended up sending me some generic message about checking the "lock" switch on the card (SD cards have lock switches, but MicroSD doesn't!).
I'm a huge Android fan, but incidents like this make me slightly appreciate Apple's keep it simple (at a rather large cost, of course) philosophy. I can't imagine Joe User trying to figure out why their camera won't work or how frustrated they would be if the card wiped everything out for good.
I won't bother getting too much into the technical specs of this card since that information can be found in the product's details as well as other reviews here. When purchasing a new memory card for various electronic devices, there is always that little bit of fear that it may not be compatible, so I mainly wanted to write this review to reflect my experiences with it in my htc EVO 4G.
My EVO came stock with an 8 GB class 2 microSD card. While it seemed to work great, I noticed a small problem after shooting some test video in 720 HD: Occasionally the video would freeze. Thinking it may be a playback issue on the phone, I copied the video over to my PC and the video freezes were in the same place. My conclusion was simple: The memory card simply couldn't write the HD data fast enough.
I don't really listen to music on my EVO (MP3s), nor do I typically watch a lot of videos on it either. But I wanted to know that should something come up where I wanted to record a video in HD, it would do a decent job at it. After shooting a couple 5 minute videos with the new memory card, I was happy to see that there were no freezes in the video, so for that I am happy. Will a faster memory card magically turn a cell phone into a professional video camera? Of course not. While it no longer freezes, it is still pretty typical cell phone video (particularly prone to motion blur) albeit probably better quality than many other cell phone videos (but that is the phone's hardware, not the memory card).
I had heard that a class 4 card would do the job as well, and I actually originally ordered a class 4 card from a different manufacturer but what I received was an empty box from the post office (no kidding, and it even had a USPS sticker on it stating that *they* received it unsealed). After shopping with Amazon for MANY years, this was a first for me and Amazon was quick with the refund as expected.
When I went to put another order in, I saw this one for a bit more money and went for this one instead. So far I am very pleased with this card's performance in my EVO, and certain other things on the phone seem a bit zippier too but it's really hard to gauge.
The bottom line is this: This card does work in the EVO, and it works well.
