      Bog standard MicroSD

      Although their minuscule proportions can often make them frustrating to use, MicroSD cards have quickly become the industry standard mobile storage media. For the last couple of years i've used Integral's 2GB MicroSD card, primarily because it's the one which came free with my phone.

      Price & Specifications
      - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
      Costing £3 from Amazon, the 2GB Integral MicroSD is reasonably priced - that said, it's a bog-standard model which isn't particularly quick to read or write files. Most card readers have a 'class' number printed onto them which determines their speed (Class 2 has a minimum read & write speed of 2mbs per second, Class 4 = 4mbs per second etc) - but the Integral's class isn't shown. This often means that the card falls below the necessary requirements for grading - but how does it perform in practice?

      - - - - - - - - -
      When using the card with my phone the lack of velocity hasn't been an issue, as the files I store (predominantly photos) are of a small file size - however, on the rare occasion when I put the MicroSD into an adaptor and use it on the PC, i've found myself waiting quite some time for file transfers. In the card's favour i've found that its reliability has been especially good, and i've no issues to report regarding card errors or mysterious losses of data.

      Final Word
      - - - - - - -
      Overall, the 2GB Integral MicroSD is a respectable card which represents a good 'value' option for those who aren't keen on spending masses of money on a tiny bit of plastic. To be honest, Its performance will depend on what you're using it for - those who frequently shoot video clips and high resolution photos will certainly need to look elsewhere.
