This product has some serious issues... – Genuine Kingston 8GB SDHC MicroSD/TF Memory Card (Class 4) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- 8Gb (but 7,42Gb usable)
- Well packed
- Comes with an adapter for MiniSD.
Cons:
- It´s not class 4 as advertised, neither class 2. (check the pictures i uploaded, i mean, if they are going to be published)
- It doesn´t even achieve 1mb/sec transfer (below class 1) =(
- The microSD shows made in Japan, the adapter shows, made in China, the blister shows made in China. Just getting a little confused and untrustful right now... =\
- Big transfers of about 4Gb ISOs, overheat the card, and i suppose it´ll decrease its lifetime, or evenworse, fry during the use.
Other:
Sincerely? This is a bad choice for a 8Gb microSD. It has real capacity of 7,42Gb formatted in FAT32. The transfer speed is slower than my first generation microSD of 1Gb.
Maybe i got a bad one, or a bad batch.
Unluck?
Don´t know... but i don´t recommend this product for sure.
And the price... well... it isn´t that cheap.
Bottomline:
Regret? Tell me...
This should not be classified as original nor class 4 memory.
