Sandisk Micro Secure Digital Card HC 16GB Review

SanDisk Micro Secure Digital Card HC 16GB is the newest format and capacity of cards of the SD family of SanDisk. It is a high capacity card designed to work with a range of portable devices such as music players, digital cameras and cell phones which carry a microSD slot.


SanDisk Micro Secure Digital Card HC 16GB has a speed rating of class 2, but actual testing shows much higher achievement. Class 2 implies a minimum transfer speed of 2MB/second. But when tested in real life, the card displayed a transfer speed ranging from 4 MB to 5MB/second. The card was tested with small files, large files and a combination of small and large files. Transferring a batch or group of files and folders all at once yielded the slowest transfer rate but it was still close to 4 MB/s. To test stability, SanDisk Micro Secure Digital Card HC 16GB was formatted repeatedly and tried with a variety of devices. The card survived the multiple erasures, rewrites and reformats without having a definitive failure, a common case with such cards. This ability to withstand re-writes and re-formats is especially crucial for high-capacity cards because one should not be stuck with expensive cards that quit on you or becomes unusable – even less so when they have all of your important files in them.


Cards of poor quality don’t work on multiple supposedly compatible devices. MicroSD cards from SanDisk, however, boast of traditional all-around compatibility and work on every device that they were tested on, including cell phone, music player and even a PlayStation Portable (PSP). Regarding price, this original SanDisk model is indeed quite expensive in its category, even when compared to other Class 2 microSD cards from well-known brands like Kingston. Like most cards, it is a good idea to shop online for the best deal.


Usually, such Class 2 cards are on the slower side. But as you can see from the tests, these exhibited a capacity and speed much higher than the usual. This is suited to the large files people like to store in high capacity cards. The speed and stability offered by this SanDisk microSD makes this card worthwhile buying when you shop around for a Class 2 card. This new memory card has been garnished with the latest in technology with a UHS1 rating. With the latest DSLR cameras catching up to this specification, upgrading to the Sandisk Micro Secure Digital Card HC 16GB is welcome especially for those who enjoy shooting full sessions in burst mode.


Moreover, it measures around a quarter of the size of the standard Secure Digital (SD) card, at 15mm x 11mm x 1mm (L x W x D). It is ideal to use in storing media-rich files such as music, videos and photos in compatible mobile phones. With its high storage capacity one can store essential digital content like high quality photos, videos, music and much else. It has optimal speed and performance for microSDHC compatible devices, and is built for sturdy long lasting performance with an operating shock rating of 2000Gs amounting to a 10 foot drop. It easily transfers files between your digital devices and computer. To top it off, an original SanDisk card carries a 2 year warranty.

  • Pros:
    2 year warranty; Latest technology and features; High storage capacity
  • Cons:
    Relatively expensive
Our score:
4.5 / 5
