Default Transcend or A-DATA SD Card? - 02-06-2009, 07:06 AM

I have a credit at New Egg and decided to get an SD card. I narrowed my choices down and would like some input on these cards. The price is close enough that it's a wash.

I am open to suggestions on any other Class 6, 16GB card from New Egg as well for under $40. Shipping costs will be covered by New Egg so shipping is not a factor.

Transcend 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TS16GSDHC6
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820208410
$27.99

A-DATA 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TurboSD SDHC 16G
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820211245
$25.49

Thanks in advance!

Either are good. I would buy the cheapest of the two.

I've been buying Transcend flash memory for some time now, and I have never had a problem. I bought the 16GB class 6 from Amazon, and it works great.

Thanks for the replies. The reviews were just a hair better for Transcend, so I went with that. The UPS Next Day service was as much as the card. I'm glad New Egg is picking up the shipping cost. Because of the weekend, I should receive it on Monday.

Now I have to figure out FAT32 vs. NTFS for formatting.
