This micro SD card came with my boyfriend's phone and we use it to transfer the pictures we take on his phone to the lap top. It is great that a phone comes with a removable storage device but in thia day and age 512 MB is very small and we regularly need to transfer our files and data in order to leave the micro SD card free for more pictures.
==Price and availability==
On eBay you can pick these up for around 90p. In my opinion this is a reasonable price to pay and I would not like to be paying much more for such a small capacity. Brand new, these will set you back around £4.50. For less than one pound more you can get a 1GB micro SD card. I would imagine that soon these little cards with miniscule amount of storage will be obsolete.
These micro SD cards are versatile and if you buy one, you will get it with an expansion card so that it can be used like any other normal SD card. The reason for making such small cards is that we like our technology to be as small and sleek as possible and obviously as this takes up hardly any room in the back of the phone, it helps keep things light and tiny!
The card measures 15 mm x 11 mm x 1 mm and is black in colour. It is really thin and I would consider it quite delicate!
With the Samsung phone, the SD card will hold around 200 pictures and a very short amount of video. It really is not enough for us.
The card comes with a 5 Yr warranty and is compatible with most Trans-flash devices. It is small and versatile and it is good that you get it free with a phone, although it would be much better if they game you at least a 1GB card or gave you the chance to upgrade the package.
The brand SanDisk is well known and has a good reputation for making good quality products. The quality of the product is excellent. The device is so small yet well made.
The speed of transfer from card to computer is slow compared with some of my larger SD cards. I tend to go for the cards nowadays that have a really high class; as time is money! This one is quite slow, although as we are never transferring that much data at a time, it does not necessarily bother me.
This card came with my phone along with the adaptor. I recently went on a family holiday and realised how little can actually fit in a 512MB memory card. I have had no problems in using it with any of my phones or on my PC, the speed is good. I do worry that I may lose/damage it as it is very small and fiddly when inserting into a phone. I believe buying a 512MB size is suitable only for people who have minimal requirements of musical or image files. It is most suitable for people who transfer files onto PC/Hard drive or print their photos straight away and then delete the files off the card. So in other words this size is good for frequent re-use and not storing your music collection or backing up your favourite photos. If you require a large variety of music on your mobile while out and about or wish to go on holiday a minimum of 1GB is advisable.
Flawless use so far. I have no worries when using this card. I purchased it about 10 months ago for use with my Motorola Razr. I am an avid user of my phone's camera for pictures, and this card serves my purposes just fine. Currently I have 152 photos stored of 640 x 480 resolution and about 20 minutes of video (174 x 144) with room to spare. It is simple and fast to transfer the data to your computer if you purchase an adapter. The only negative thing about this card - in relation to the Razr phone specifically - is that I find it difficult to remove from its slot. Not impossible, just takes me a few tries. Other people I know don't have as much trouble. This SanDisk micro SD card is very very thin and small! It's about 10 mm x 15 mm, I'm estimating. So you can lose it if you remove it, be careful! Lastly, I have dropped my Razr a LOT (oh I'd say twice a month) and the card and the data have been fine. I'd recommend this card if you like to take pictures daily and don't mind downloading data them occasionally to clear space.
