Speed Class 4: 4MB/sec. guaranteed minimum data transfer rate

Unfortunately, the speed isn't much cop, especially when you see SSD drives with 143 MB/s read and 93 MB/s write (OCZ Core).

You are actually comparing an SSD drive to an SD memory card? Its like comparing an Atom CPU to a Conroe. Well done.

SDHC is strictly for storage, not for booting your OS from. It may not be an SSD, but it beats the hell out of optical storage.

I guess the image of the SD card above can look like a hard drive if someone had never seen the real size of an SD card :P

I know, which is why I posted it. New hardware, even flash cards, are important to our members. We have tons of camera owners and photographers here who should know as quickly as possible that there is a new card that can hold 6 THOUSAND images on a 10MP camera. I'd LOVE to have one of this. I would have been able to go on my last vacation and wouldn't have had to carry around 3 cards with me to swap out.

The price is quite high right now, but hopefully it comes down to a more affordable range within time.

It is news but not for the main page. It just detracts from the more important stories. If it was put in a dedicated hardware / reviews section then it would be fine but now I have to wade through loads of reviews, or posts informing us that reviews are going to be posted, on the frontpage. Recently it's become more of a chore to keep up with the frontpage thanks largely to posts like the one here.

32GB CF cards for PROFESSIONAL cameras have been around for a while now, and they're pretty affordable. I have a 16GB CF card in my D200, CF is the way to go.

ADATA 32 GB CF Card 92$
Transcend 32GB 133X CF card 104$
RiDATA Lightning 32GB 233x 126$

so for the cost of one of these stupid things, I could have 96 GB worth of CF storage space...great on a H2 or 645 AFD with Leaf back.
