  No problems with it

| | See all AzRarr's reviews (5)

for things like this I like to write my review 1-2 years after recieving it, and I have had no issues plus no issues with XP, Vista or Windows 7.

The camera is a Samsung not sure what model as it was a present for my partner and it is pink so I dont often use it, but it was for xmas 2010 so it works with older cameras if anyone is wondering.

  Great card

Firstly to clear things up - these do work on Vista (also works on my Win7 and Ubuntu)
Great card, actually bought this from here when it was 5.99 delivered so got a bargain (is now gone up to 9.99 at time of writing this review)
Bought to go in new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP3 (Slim line 4x optical zoom 14.1 MP camera) and this card gives you 804 pictures at the full 14.1MP settings. Perfect for holiday snaps and pretty good read/write speeds as class 6 - will work well if I want to take a quick HD video on this FP3 camera. I say quick as it's only a 4GB card.
Comes with nice rubber case and the SDHC card itself looks nice and is robust. Great value, nuff said!

  Not bad, but not the fastest card out there for photos/video

| | See all gcogger's reviews (1)

I compared this to a Sandisk Ultra II card (not the fastest Sandisk cards, but they're more expensive than this one). I ran some file transfer tests using a fast card reader. In brief, the Sandisk card was 71% faster writing large files and 44% faster reading them. The Samsung was 44% faster at random writes (lots of small files) and they were the same at random reads. Full results below:

Continuous write (using a 2GB file)
- Sandisk - 17.1 MB/s
- Samsung - 11.9 MB/s

Continuous read (using a 2GB file)
- Sandisk - 25.7 MB/s
- Samsung - 15.0 MB/s

Random write (using thousands of small files and taking the total time)
- Sandisk - 119 kB/s
- Samsung - 179 kB/s

Random read (using thousands of small files and taking the total time)
- Sandisk - 1130 kB/s
- Samsung - 1130 kB/s

  Good Value

| | See all Speake2097's reviews (19)

I have bought 5 of these, I have not used them much yet but they seem fairly robust, in the way of speed my Sandisk extreme III 30mbs reload 7 shots in 5 seconds on a D90 where these do it in 7seconds so there not as quick but they're half the price!!!

  Great Product.

Great value, fast and reliable. No issues so far! And the the poster below who claims these do not work on vista, they do. Your laptop just has a standard SD card reader and not an SDHC reader.

  Worth the extra money

Great product from Samsung. I use this in my Nikon D3000 DSLR. I take pictures in RAW format and the write times for theses large files are very speedy. So happy that I'm going to order 2/3 more!!

  HDSC cards do work on Vista

| | See all TerryJ80's reviews (1)

Sorry to "dancingtornado", and although i have yet to buy my one of these, (which i do feel will be of great value) - SDHC does work on Vista. I use many size cards on my Dell Lapatop Sd card slot. You may want to check your device drivers :)

  good SD card.. but doesn't work on Vista

| | See all dancingtornado's reviews (13)

I have a dell computer that has a built in SD card reader.
On vista when i insert this card it freezes the computer until you remove the sd card. I found out SD HC cards dont work on vista. So make sure you got your digital camera usb cables in order for this to work

  High Quality

| | See all Farine's reviews (1)

I know for the average when buying an SD(HC) card it usually comes down to one thing - price. Though by paying a little bit extra (costing 7.99 at the time of purchase) compared to the cheaper models you can get additional features that could be beneficial in the long run.

Features include:
- 4GB size
- Speed Class 6
- A 10 year warranty
- Water proof
- Magnet proof
- Shock proof
- Soft Case

So far I am very impressed with the overall design, features and cost of the product (though I am yet to test the water/magnet/shock). A great buy.
