    I got mine from NewEgg for $63. It is toooo slow to delete anything though. I will try reformatting on my PC. I thought it would default to 32k though?

    HI, Im using the sandisk micromate. It takes me 16 minutes to copy my 2 movies of 356mb each to the 8 gig transcend. 2 minutes for the 700 mb is very fast. How did you format your card? Could it be that your built in card reader is faster?

    I just wanted to share my experience:
    **I** needed AN SDHC READER to take advantage of this.
    Reading and writing is swift. I was using missing sync but it was a SLOW and excruciating process.

    I bought this reader:
    Bonzai Mobile Card Reader USB 2.0 Sdhc/mmc

    From amazon for $10... it works!!!

    I am using the 8gb sdhc transcend card...

    $67 versus how much for an apple iphone with 8gbs?

    THAT is why i love my TREO!!

    Anyone use their 8gb card with isilo?
  8. #188  
    so has the answer been answered yet as to the speed of this card? How does it compare to the other 2, 4gb'ers out there?

    Not too cool if we have to use a particular card reader with it as I am constantly moving around from comp to comp and use the built-in media reader.

    *sigh* no you don't and please dont listen to this if youre thinking of buying. You can use Card Export 2 on your treo to turn it into a card reader. Yes, it is slower than a reader, but provides the same result. Its what I use with no problems.

    cheers

    Hmmm, seems missing sync WON'T recognize the 8gb SDHC card now... =/

    THAT was one simple statement that I DID NOT OWN... o_O

    For me it works... though I may look into card export 2 now tho... dang missing sync/mounting has been an invaluable tool... =/


    OR I guess not... there's some sort of s/w conflict with my set-up and card export II... THAT would therefore not be a solution for myself...

    Class 2 supports a minimum data transfer rate of 2MB per second; Class 4 supports 4MB per second; and Class 6 6MB per second.

    thanks for the answer. I will return my class 2 & get a class 4. are the class 6 available yet? just last week newegg only had class 2 but now they have a class 4. the prices are insanely low too. maybe it's because these aren't compatible with a lot of existing devices...

    Has anyone benchmarked the speed difference of class 2/4 8gig card on the treo as far as save/delete are concerned? anyone have experience with these cards to know if class 4 has a any noticable speed advantage over class 2 on the treo itself? thanks in advance.

    I haven't bought one of these 8GB SD cards yet, but according to the standards, the SDHC cards ARE really slower. There are three classes of SDHC (or SD 2.0):
    * Class 2: 2MB/s
    * Class 4: 4MB/s
    * Class 6: 6MB/s

    On the other hand, normal SD cards (SD 1.0) which are smaller than 2 GB (with some non-standard-compliant 4GB available) max out at a much higher speed. When you see an SD card says 150X( or 80X) it means it is 150 times (or 80 times) faster than a standard CD-ROM device (150 KB/s). Some common speeds are:
    * 8X = 1.2 MB/sec
    * 12X = 1.8 MB/sec
    * 20X = 3.0 MB/sec
    * 25X = 3.8 MB/sec
    * 30X = 4.5 MB/sec
    * 40X = 6.0 MB/sec
    * 45X = 6.75 MB/sec
    * 60X = 9.0 MB/sec
    * 66X (SD 1.01) = 10.0 MB/sec
    * 80X = 12.0 MB/sec
    * 90X = 15.0 MB/sec
    * 133X (SD 1.1) = 20.0 MB/sec
    * 150X (SanDisk Extreme III SD) = 22.5 MB/sec (minimum 20MB/s guaranteed)

    Note that by a quick search in newegg you'll find out that the cheapest 2 GB SD cards have 45X to 60X speed, 3-4 times faster than the class 2 SDHC cards.

    Now The speeds are improving, e.g. SanDisk UltraŽ II SDHC 4GB runs at 10MB/s, but it retails for $220. The normal SanDisk Standard SDHC™ Card 4GB which retails for $120 is a class 2 device though.


    So, You can decide whether it's worth it or not. You are looking at a 5 times slower speed. In my opinion it would be fine for mp3 and picture browsing, and perhaps watching video (although video takes much more bandwidth, and I guess you may experience choppy scenes sometimes, expecially on action scences where there are a lot of fast changing frames and the bandwidth requirement increases significantly).

    This would only apply to streaming video, right? If you compress your own DVD and put it on the card, does the card speed effect the quality of the playback?

    I haven't had any issues with playing videos.
