Sandisk 512 MB microSD
Advantages: tiny card
Disadvantages: small capacity
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.
Summary: a small card for small things
