Sandisk Ultra 8GB SDHC mobile card review

SanDisk Mobile Ultra MicroSDHC 8GB is premium mobile card which offers great features and 8 GB storage space in a neat tiny package. SanDisk Ultra range of cards promises fast data transfer speeds as compared to the previous generation of mobile cards, The 8GB Ultra SDHC card I received was one of them, the package consists of a 8 GB MicroSDHC card which is of the similar size of any other MicroSD card and a tiny USB Card Reader which makes it easy to use the MicroSDHC  card as a 8 GB high speed pendrive. The data transfer speeds are the fastest if you compare it with the generic pendrives available in the market. If you have a mobile, digital camera that supports MicroSDHC cards upto 8 GB than this is a product to go for.

Real Life Data Transfer Speed Test:

SanDisk Ultra gives consistent high speeds in transferring videos, music and pictures. Usable capacity of 8GB MicroSDHC card is 7.59 GB.

Transfer of 700MB movie in .avi format took 55 seconds giving data transfer Write Speed of around 12.72 MB/s

From Card to PC

Pros: Features and Warranty:

  • 8GB Storage space,
  • High Speed Transfer Performance Rating: Class 4
  • Small form factor
  • Plug-n-Play

The tiny size of both the 8GB MicroSDHC card and USB Card Reader makes it easy to loose or misplace. SanDisk has bundled a cord for this reason.
