Although this sd card is approximately double the price of normal 4 GB sd cards the premium is well worth the versatility. Not only does this card make transferring pictures from cameras to computers and other devices without sd card readers simple and cordless, but it can also replace a USB flash drive (thumb drive) of the same storage capacity and it is so small it can fit unnoticed into a wallet!
If you want USB ease built-in, then these are the best SDHC you can get currently, at least that I can find. Other companies introduced comparable products, such as the Duo SD product of OCZ Technology and the 3 Way [microSDHC, SDHC, and USB] product of A-DATA, which was available in 2008 only.) This is also Class 6 (minimum 6MB/s) and the all black ones are only class 4. That's fast enough for whatever you are doing unless it's lots of HD video. At 4GB, I use this as a jump-drive for everything I do (pics, docs, music, videos, etc), and carry it around in my camera all day for use on any computer. Super convenient.
Love, love, love these SD cards. The ease by which you can just plug them into a usb port without any other appliance is more valuable than one might first think.
I love these cards. I've been using the Ultra II SD Plush cards for a few years now and when I purchased a new camera I decided it was time to increase the memory capacity and speed. While I do wish they came in class 10, class 6 is still speedy enough and works fine. It is so convenient to be able to take the card out of the camera and plug it directly into any computer. I am a little surprised that SanDisk hasn't continued making these with faster speeds and higher capacities. Maybe I'm even more surprised that these didn't become so popular that SanDisk would have had no choice but to keep advancing them. Sure, you pay about twice what you could for a normal SD card, but in my opinion, memory has become so cheap that the extra expense is worth the convenience. I now carry one of my older Ultra II 2GB SD Plus cards on my keychain in a little SD card carrier for backup (whether it's for my camera or to just use as a USB drive, I have it). Everyone I've introduced to these absolutely love them!
