About Kingston Technology

The Kingston Technology 8 GB Class 6 SDHC Memory Card offers larger-volume data storage and optimized recording performance with support for FAT 32 file formats. In addition, Kingston's SDHC card uses new speed "class" ratings known as Class 6 that delivers a minimum data transfer rate for optimum performance with SDHC devices.

Although identical in size to today's standard SD card, the new SDHC card is designed differently and is only recognized by SDHC host devices. For added reliability and durability, the solid-state SDHC memory card is built of nonvolatile memory components and has no moving parts that could wear out or break.

I now own two of these- really like them

I now own two of these and really enjoy having the 8GB of space for photos. The speed is great and the product has been reliable for thousands of pictures. I have never had a problem with these. I was unsure about buying Kingston because I had always previously purchased Lexar and Sandisk. I am glad I did though as these are a much better value and equally reliable in my experience.

Slow write speed at 11mb/sec

I was thinking whether to buy Kingston or Sandisk. at last I choose this product thinking that it has a writing speed of 133x that would be equal to 20mb/sec or maybe 15mb/sec and it was on SALE!! Well I was wrong after I received the product. I tested the product using crystal disk and the maximum write speed is only 11mb/sec. This should be categorized as class 2 and not class 6. If you think this is gona worth your money, I dont think so but is up to you people out there if you think i...

Gee... thanks Kingston for the great deal. I have always been using Kingston's products but after this I feel that this company is turning away from quality and going quantity instead. I guess this will be the last product I get from Kingston.

Canon T2i and SD6/8GB-U Format Anomaly

By

After an onsite visit to Kingston Technology, where they did additional testing, the conclusion is that their Ultimate 133x SDHC, when used in a Canon T2i DSLR will take 72+ seconds to do a low-level format. Other manufacturers' Class 6 SDHC cards typically take 3 seconds to do the same thing in the same T2i. All other aspects of data transfer and recording (including video) showed no signs of any speed issue. These cards were also tested in another T2i body with the same results. It is an annoyance rather than a serious failure. It also seems to format quickly in other cameras but they may not be doing the low-level format. Non-low-level formatting runs at a reasonable speed in the T2i. Kingston is gladly refunding me the price of the memory. Thanks goes to their expert technical assistance.
