Which microSDHC Card Is Right For You?
All of the microSDHC cards we tested perform as their vendors advertise. As a result, prospective buyers can be confident in the performance each of these models delivers.
The packaging tells you what class within the SD 2.0 specification your favorite card belongs to, indicating the minimum data transfer rate you can expect from it. We did not find a single performance disappointment. To the contrary, we found one sleeper. Although it's advertised as a Class 4 card, SanDisk's Mobile Ultra microSDHC matches the performance of the Class 10 cards we tests, going so far as to win the sequential read speed metric.
Only few manufacturers ship microSDHC cards without accessories. A SDHC adapter, which allows you to read the microSDHC card in a SDHC card reader, is included with nine of the 15 tested cards. Comparatively rare are USB readers, which are included with both Lexar cards and the SanDisk Mobile Ultra microSDHC. You'll predominantly come across USB readers when buying microSDHC cards that are not exclusively intended for mobile devices, but also for data exchange with a PC. However, none of the 15 tested cards include both adapters. The other extreme, no accessories at all, is rare: only the Adata cards and the other SanDisk model do not include any adapter at all.
