5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: With the included adapters it should be no problem reading/using the memory card in any device.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: The USB adapter is especially useful for using the card from a PC or laptop, which may not include a card reader.

4 out of 5 eggsI've loved these for the past 2 years...

Pros: Small and compact... I love them! Small compact I've used them for a couple years now and I'll continue to buy the readers as they die.

Cons: Expect the reader to fail after about 6 months. It's a little annoying but the size well makes up for it, as far as I'm concerned.

Other Thoughts: Never can have too many SD cards around just wish they'd figure out a way to have the reader not fail after 6 months almost to the day. For work we bought 20 and all the readers failed within a month of each other (after 6 months of regular use) the cards are all still working great!

3 out of 5 eggs8gb microsdhc

Pros: free 3 day shipping, avg write speed of around 8Mb/s, with adapter and card reader

Cons: when using the SD card adapter in my laptop card reader, can read from it, but was unable to write any file in it. always giving me error like 'cannot read from source file'. using the included card reader solves the problem but still a hassle.

Other Thoughts: a class 2 card might still be faster than this card.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid value buy

Pros: Heavy usage and has not failed in more than 6 months. Only a handful of clusters were damaged. That is good if you plan to store your precious life memories on such a small thing. You want it to be reliable.

Cons: Not the fastest. I wouldn't expect to run a system partition with anything less than a Class 6. Not enough information to educate buyers.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my Nexus One when it was released, but I recently outgrew the 8GB capacity. I upgraded to a 16GB Class 6 card, and the performance boost on my phone is faintly noticeable, but I can tell there is a difference.

It depends on what you are going to use this for. If you are using to store documents or pictures then this card is far more than suitable for the price, but if you are expecting to play videos or partition this card for system storage you may want to purchase a card with better speeds.

1 out of 5 eggswhat a horrible product

Pros: very small

Cons: This is absolutely the SLOWEST flash drive i've ever used. Why go small if you can't still transfer quickly? I tried formatting as FAT32 and HFS+ and both produced the same abysmally slow transfer speeds. I will be returning this awful product.

5 out of 5 eggsIts cool

Pros: Bought it for my Nokia E71 for more apps music and video.

it works as it should. kinda hard to screw this kind of stuff up.

Cons: packaging was a nightmare, i had to cut the USB adapter out of the plastic wrap (they used just as much tap as plastic to 'protect it')

Other Thoughts: i needed it, the adapters were not cheaper to buy separate due to shipping charges to where i live. so this was convenient.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what i want

Pros: does what it should, price (cheaper to get it with all the adapters then alone)

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: transferred a 1.03GB in just under 5 min using the card reader in the usb of a mbp 2.5ghz 4gb ram

adapters work... tested them.

its a memory card... theres not much more you can say. it does what it should.
