Anyone has a recommended cheap SD card?

Thu Jul 05, 2012 6:12 pm

Please share~!?

Thanks.

There is a big list of tested SD-cards in the Wiki.

Thanks

But the list is very long. I am really interested in getting what people have... many of these SD cards probably don't offer good speed for I/O operations. I've read many posts regarding how slow some of them are....

Thanks.

I have found the Sandisk Class 4, 8GB to be very reliable, and at less than £5 from either Amazon or Play, cheap.

Hi

Another vote here for that card. Paid £3.52 for mine from Amazon.

Cheers

I'm using 3 of these Kingston 8Gb cards which seem 100% reliable
http://www.ebuyer.com/130039-kingston-8 ... rd-sd4-8gb
The first 2 cost about £3.98, but the 3rd bought a week later cost £4.98.
Cheers,
Peter

I have had success with the 32gb Amazon Basics cards. http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-SDHC ... ds=32gb+sd

I have a 16 GB, Class 10 AmazonBasics SD card that is working just fine for me.
