Which company Micro Sd cards are best?

Hey guys,

I wanted to buy a 32 GB memory card for my phone so i thought i should first ask your opinion about the Memory card Manufacturers ..

so tell me which memory card manufacturer is best for MicroSD cards sized 32 GB

and is it true that The higher CLASS card the better..

by Class i mean class 6 class 8 class 10 etc..

also tell me the current market rates and availability with class and manufacturer name..

Thanks

Sony & Kingston are best in Memory Cards.

Don't know about 32GB, but 16GB regular Kingston SD memory card costs around 2500.

If you want to buy locally (which is hard to find, I think) then forget brand. You wouldn't get any original thing.

If wanna buy from abroad, look for SanDisk or Lexar.

Class number is speed of data transfer (as SD cards are serial devices), the higher the better but more expensive. For HD videos read/write, use at least Class 6 (6MB/sec)

It would still be interesting to see if the controller on the device can actually use the speed. In some cases it doesn't matter how much speed the card has because the device cannot use the card at its highest speed.

I would like to know if 32GB is available locally and for what price ?

best is transcend

check right product for you here Transcend

higher class cards are only essentials for fast data writable gadgets like newer camcorder dsl cameras etc. so its not necessary for mobile phones

transcend is good, however I am just saying this cuz it the most expensive brand I guess. Money = quality

You can find original Kingston ones in Pakistan as well. I have a 4GB Kingston MicroSD, got that from a sale at expo Karachi. The built quality is way better than those sold in local markets.

Why are you spreading lies like this? Kingston original ones are available everywhere.

^ I guess they might not be available in Islamabad, Us Karachiites (did i spell it correctly) can find the original stuff easily. :D

People might have to come out from Islamabad (capital) where most of the stuff being sold is overpriced & lower quality

even many rawalpindians goes to Lahore for buying original stuff with reasonable/msrp prices

Lahore has good stuff in markets but most of vendors there are fradiyes so be careful when buying something :D

In a market where imported items are mostly smuggled and repacked here, what is the guarantee if an item is genuine ?

Yesterday I bought a 16GB memory card for Rs.2500 and it was in lose packing, guess what the company name was on it ? It was LEXAR, an american company and card is without packing. Why on earth should I beleive that it is original LEXAR card and not a chinese one with fake printing.

There are numerous other examples and based on those, I personally believe that we get mostly fake items. This is my opinion and no one needs to agree with me.

Does any one remember the days with dial-up internet and Intel modems were very popular. As a matter of fact, Intel never made any modem.

Kenwood is a leading manufacturer of audio equipment, they don’t make AC, washing machines and juicers but we have them here.

Tell me, are those items original ?

Completely agree with you mate. This illegal business goes very deep in Pakistan. Even when buying something from an authorized reseller, I wonder if they are giving me something original or just a ripoff.

On a sidenote, there are two companies named Kenwood, i.e. Kenwood Corporation (they make audio equipments) and Kenwood Limited (they make kitchen appliances and other household stuff).

Good Info, thanks. I searched a little and came to know that there is KENWOOD and KENWOOD Limited. After exploring these websites, it is a surprise that we have a third Kenwood here in Pakistan because Kenwood Limited is limited to kitchen products mainly (http://www.kenwoodworld.com/en-int/Products/)

While I receive promotional offers from credit card companies offering Kenwood AC, Washing machines, microwaves etc… It’s really hard to believe if something is really original or you are deceived.

Anyway, the nation who can sell fake Life Saving Drugs can do anything, this I say with a heavy heart… God bless us

You can verify it on the Kingston site.

http://www.kingston.com/asia/verify/

And BTW kingston has authorized distributors in Pakistan. So why don’t you contact them and buy from their authorized dealers if you are so afraid of fake products?

More falsehoods. I actually own an Intel dial up modem. Bought it for just 600 back in the day. Here you can see Intel says they made modem chipsets:

I still own my words and my statement "Intel never made any modem. Intel do make chipsets for modems but they never made a Modem."

Here Intel says itself - http://www.intel.com/support/network/modemchipsets/sb/CS-030493.htm

56k modems are now obsolete. So they don't make them anymore. They used to make them:

"Note that Intel acquired Ambient Technologies which was a spin-off of Cirrus Logic created to handle just the modem portion of Cirrus/Amibent's business."

http://www.modemsite.com/56k/intel.asp

You can search for Intel HaM modems. You'll get lots of hits.

Intel designs modem chipsets – it does not manufacture or support modems. For service and technical support for your modem, please contact the modem manufacturer.

There is a big difference in making a chipset for modem and manufacturing a modem. A practical and usable modem is lot more than just chipset. Intel made chipsets but never made and marketed modems. A modem using Intel chipset (may or) can not be called an Intel modem.

When Intel says it does not manufacture modems, why are you trying to convince me that Intel actually made modems ?

You or me can only state facts, but can not change them :) I believe that you think a cheap chinese modem made with Intel chipset is actually Intel modem, manufactured by Intel.

Let's put our energy to something useful :D

Sorry ShoukaT, the thread went far away from original topic...

Aaaa buy whatever you like, no one knows what are classes! and wth are you talking about brands which brand is being originally sold in paksitan? i guess none!

You'll be actually wasting your money buying it from here. So buy it from abroad or order it from some ebay kinda thing.

Guys ShoukaT is looking for an exquisite brand for his exquisite Nexus S, or most probably the next Galaxy S2 he will own. Therefore brand and class do matter if you do not want to corrode your 60k phones Micro-SD slot with broken plastic chips of a cheapo card.

This ‘‘third Kenwood’’ is Kenwood Licensed in Pakistan. The word ‘‘Limited’’ stands for, the company has limited public shares.

8 years ago, I had a dialup modem made by Intel, sold by Intel, contained chip of Intel with Intel drivers. This is not a big issue, you do not know everything. Old P3 and P4 motherboards made by Intel often contained built In Intel modems.

Classes represent different speeds of memory cards. For example, HC Class 4 memory cards have higher speed than HC Class 2 memory cards. Now a days, HD digital cameras, high mega pixel cameras ask for higher class memory cards. Classes usually come in SD cards.
