What are the best SD memory cards and how do we recognize them - video tutorial

Hi friends, in this video tutorial will explain how things in the world of memory cards, specifically we discuss cards flash SD or Secure Digital, they are classified in a certain way, the importance is not only choosing the card but choosing the device will use this card.

A man with his head on his shoulders must think of everything before not "crying" after that, I mean first of all the purchase of the device that will carry the memory card, it must be "future proof" meaning to have support for as many technologies that will appear in the next period, we in this tutorial are interested in everything related to the memory card, the types of cards more precisely.

When purchasing the gadget we must pay attention to the supported memory card formats, the most common nowadays is the SD or Secure Digital card and its "successors", it is Mini SD and Micro SD or Micro SD HC, The latter has become overnight the most popular memory card used for storing data on portable pocket devices and more. I told you that we must pay attention to the formats supported by the future gadget, the most important thing that a portable device must have vis-à-vis the release, is the support for SD 2.0 or SD HC, this means that the device is ready for the future when it comes to storage and we will be able to upgrade our storage space in the future, using HC SD cards with hard to imagine capabilities today.

Another thing you have to be very careful is speed class card or CLASS, this shows how fast is the card you are going to buy it, classes of speed SD cards start at number 2 until now arrived at 12, can exist in laboratories and in may peform cards available on the market but to 10 or 12.

In our market you will find very often cards Class 2 and 4, rarely you will find cards Class 6 and most often you will find class 10 but they are extremely expensive and are used in professional environments, SD HC CLASS 10 are devices used in DSLR and HD camcorders, which require a small and fast storage solution.

The price difference between a card CLASS 2 and one CLASS 6 is not very high, I think it deserves, for an amount small enough to make compromises card CLASS 2 have a write speed of 16Mbits or Explained 2 MBytes card, CLASS 6 has a write speed guaranteed minimum of 48 Mbits per second or Explained 6 MBytes in principle is simple, CLASS equals write speed minimum guaranteed in MBytes, a file 6 Mega will be written CLASS 6 card in one second and one in 2 3 CLASS seconds difertenta is great, right?

Whatever your choice, choose carefully studied before offers several shops, remember, and the device will accommodate SD card must support SD HC or 2.0.

    I admit I haven't seen HC cards on the market yet, but with 30 RON I bought a 2G one and it has similar parameters to the one you tested (HC), only the access time is longer (I could even say double). this way of testing to see what kind of flash stick the people from Dep de Calc sent me in exchange for one with a lifetime warranty (which gave its spirit) on which I gave a lot of money and surprise with very little raises above the performance of the memory card mentioned above. The conclusions… are obvious, but they threatened me that if I don't pick it up I give it to abandoned objects

  22. I bought a Micro SD card, and on it than nuscrie: GB SanDisk MicroSD 2.0, Made in Taiwan, and a series of genu 0980629863, 2.55 lam checked with HD Tune and the result was: Transfer rate: less than 7.5 Mb / sec | 10.4 maximum Mb / sec | Access Time ms 0.8, what a class it be ?? thank you.

  23. But how do we make these cards ??? As the sites I saw that there are specifications of all kinds (each more wrongheaded) For example advertise as her class 6 but performance is guaranteed 4 MB or minimum selling class 6 but the card does not appear nothing engraved on it. (And eventually it would be so hard to burn one and it be something else?!? So say brands trustworthy place purchase and whether (following the tests) you have come to the conclusion that it is or is not what you were told at the time of sale… To really help us!

  24. Anyway Cristi,… thousands of thanks for that you're trying to open our eyes and protect our pockets. Respect.

    The DVD player in the car or its user manual (if you no longer have it, you can find it in .pdf format on the manufacturer's website most likely) must specify which video formats your DVD player can play: avi, vmw, mp4 etc.… Depending on what formats your DVD Player supports and can play, you will need to convert your videos to a format supported by your DVD Player.
    For this you can use a lot of free software that can convert a video or movie video from one format to another.
    To find those software, write in the box top right sidebar SEARCH: video conversion software, or video conversion and video converter, hit enter and you will find the tutorial

  48. Hello, I have a question there is a difference between cards MICRO-SDHC and the SDHC, besides their size. I refer in particular to their performance, and in deeds if the micro heat up as the worst SDHC.

    One problem that I do not know if anyone noticed it, or if you give me clarify. The memory card comes FAT 32 Il bag in the room and I noticed that often has small interruptions after a longer time of continuous shooting. I guess it's formatted NTFS files that leaves whole and not know if I can do on the computer and then put him in the room. Formatting native 32 room is FAT. if I do ntfs possible to have trouble shooting?

    Hello Cristi,
    If you have time please give me a suggestion regarding the choice of an sd card.
    I bought a Samsung Galaxy tab S 6 Lite tablet, the one with S Pen at 1800 and, from Orange based on a love bonus but also supplemented by me. I would like to buy a 256 gb memory card at the price of 250 lei, if possible under it. I also searched the net for information on this subject, but the dynamics, the evolution of IT technology, the specialized terms and especially the interests (what I feel) that are behind the reviews confuse me a bit. A piece of advice from you would be a priority in my decision. Thank you in advance.
