Default Buffalo Micro USB memory stick - RMUM-8G/BK - 12-11-2008, 02:47 PM

Thinking about picking up one of these to keep my iTunes on when I install OS X. It holds an 8GB class 4 Micro SDHC card. What do ya think? I like it because of how small it is.

Yeah, I thought so too I like the fact that it does not protrude out of the case so much. Alot similar to some bluetooth modules.

The thing that I am most curious about is will it hold a bigger card. They sell a 1gb model of that for less than 20bucks. The one listed above is about 60bucks. I am curious if I get that 1gb model and buy another brand of sdhc with bigger capacity if it will work. I can get a 16gb micro sdhc for about 60 more bucks so total would be 80bucks for the 2 pieces. Just wondering if it will accept it??

One more thing I am curious about. If a bigger card would fit and I did get the 16gb. It is only a class 2. Would that be suitable for my iTunes and possibly reading movies from that drive??

Anyone

Any Micro SD card should work with that reader and yep, class 2 will play music and my 700mb divx movies no problem.

That is an awesome looking reader! Even smaller than SanDisks!
Looks perfect for netbooks.

Then I would have to say it is a done deal then. I will pick up the 1gb micro usb and buy the Sandisk 16gb micro sdhc card. 80bucks well spent. Thanks.

Oh, yeah. Did I mention that it comes in white too.

They have not even released them here in Japan yet. Should be "middle" December. Soooo, I am assuming it will still be a while before they are released in the US.

List price of about $75 for the 8G model???? I suppose one could buy the 1GB model for about $20 and then add their own MicroSD card, which seems to be what you're recommending.
