I bought this to replace the paltry 128GB memory card that came with my Sony Ericsson phone. I needed to put enough music on to get me through train journeys, dog walks etc. as I don't have a specialist mp3 player. I didn't have a large music collection at the time (about 400 songs) so this memory card at 2GB was just right. I also wanted to store a few photos that I took on my phone.
The first thing that surprised me about these M2 cards is their size. They are absolutely tiny (about the size of my little finger nail)! So they are quite impressive just to look at and marvel if anything. I trusted this card as it is made by Sandisk.
I have had the card about 2 years now and it is absolutely fine still. I have taken all the content off it a few times and put new stuff on (Craig David isn't cool nowdays) and it still works ok. When I put it into my phone it sometimes doesn't read it but I just take it out and put it in again and it's been fine every time.
It transfers data quickly enough for what I need.
It also came in a handy plastic case which keeps the card safe if it's ever out of your device.
I'd give it 5* apart from the phone issue (which I personally think is the phone's fault not the card's)
If 2GB is enough then I'd recommend this card.
I bought this memory card so I could listen to more music on my mobile and install more games. Unfortunately, according to my phone's manual, 2gb is the maximum amount my phone can support, which seems to get filled up quickly with music and gps maps.
The sandisk card seems fast to access, and I can quickly transfer lots of files from my pc to the memory card using the supplied m2 to memory stick adaptor, so it can be used in a standard memory card slot. I've never had any problems with the card being recognised and I can always access the card quickly and transfer files without any errors.
The card fits easily into my phone, and I store almost every application on my phone (and all my games) on the memory stick. My phone always recognises the memory stick in a few seconds and the applications run off the memory stick as if they were stored on the internal memory (i.e. they load fast, run reliably and save settings fine).
I would recommend this card to anyone who needs more storage on their mobile (with an m2 slot). I would buy the largest capacity card that your phone supports (at a reasonable price), as it's surprising how quickly 2gb can be used with music, videos, games, etc.
I purchased one of these for £20 from argos around 9 months ago now. I bought it so I could listen to music on my mobile phone whilst on the train - its served me well and still retains a place in my phone.
It can store approximately 35 albums on it, which provides more than enough variety for my needs. I also use it as my main storage for pictures when I take them on my phone. It has always been reliable - and although its small, I've never had the problem of misplacing it as its always inside my phone. Keeping tabs on my phone is another matter completely!
At the time I really couldnt afford a larger capacity disk, and looking back I'm glad I didn't waste money on more. Within the package I purchased from argos I also recieved a converter, which you can slot the m2 disk in and it fits in larger slots of other devices (card readers, digital cameras etc.) which was an added bonus. I have problems with the USB on my PC, so its faster to just chuck the memory card into my girlfriends laptops card reader (with whom now I live with) and transfer the photos off it that way!
I bought this card for the whopping price of £44.99 when it first came out. I needed it to back up precious photos etc from my mobile phone (my only digital camera). When my mobile recently went to the little place in the sky for mobiles, I was relieved I had my little Sandisk to see me right. That is, until I actually went to try and retrieve my stuff from it (I had files on there as well as photos) and found that since October 2007, it had not saved anything at all.
I don't know why this is, and I have written to the manufacturers to see where the problem lies, but in the meantime, it has left me disappointed to have lost some sentimental items (referring back to the photos) which I had not yet transferred to a PC as I just got a laptop and am still figuring out how to use it!!
As I don't know where the fault lies, I reserve judgement on most aspects other than its reliability; surely you should expect it to save things?
