Kingston intros speedy Class 10 16GB microSDHC card

By on February 16, 2010, 1:06 PM
Kingston has launched a new microSDHC memory card that is among the first to boast the speedy Class 10 specification. The card offers 16GB of storage and has a minimum data transfer rate of 10MB/s, which is significantly faster than previous Class 2, 4 and 6 cards, making it a perfect match for devices like HD cameras. In fact, Kingston's Wendy Lecot says such devices are "being designed to optimize their write performance to take advantage of the more responsive memory card speeds."


Kingston is selling its latest creation in a few packages. It's compatible with microSDHC, miniSDHC, and SDHC readers and ships for $138 by itself, $139 with an SD adapter and $140 with both SD and miniSD adapters. Granted, that's over double the price of some 16GB Class 6 microSDHC cards, but the price will come down eventually. In the meantime, you can try to justify the purchase with Kingston's lifetime warranty.
