my krzr loves it, February 8, 2007
Worked out of the box for my krzr, no need to format. Not sure what the difference is between this "bulk" item and the retail version is, aside from price
I love how cheap memory have become, March 16, 2007
I remember paying $100 for 512 megs. Heck, even before that I once paid several hundred dollars for a 170meg DRIVE. I love that memory chips are presently a) cheap and b) TINY. This is so cheap, it's practically free. 1 GIG for 10 bucks!? How can you lose? I bought this mini card for my Motorola KRZR phone. Worked perfectly. You plug the card into your phone (under battery) and it instantly recognizes and creates directories surrounded by it (photos, music, sounds). SO, if you want to upload your own music to your phone, take the card out, use the included adapter, and plug it into your laptop. If your laptop doesn't have a memory card slot, Sandisk also make a (cheap!) USB adaptor that accepts both SD and MINI SD cards. Copy music onto the card in the "music" directory, plug card put a bet on into phone, and viola: no need to bother with the Verizon on-line Music debris. Easy. Works great. In another week, you'll be able to buy 100 gigs for 10 bucks!
Works great with VX-8300, February 6, 2007
Great price, arrived sooner than expected...but survey out for the shipping charges. Cost $11.00 to ship standard a practically weightless padded envelope containing two memory cards. Guess that's how they can submission sucha good price on the cards.
BIG RIPOFF by eek technology, April 5, 2008
eek technology - Watch out on this one - the shipping and handling listed is not per proclaim, or even pro-rated based on any factor (weight, size) other than greed.
Buy one, you repay one shipping and handling
Buy ten, you pay ten shipping and handlings!
So, on a recent order from eek technology, my merchandise direct of ten mini-SDs was about $20.00 but the shipping and handling be $50.00!
1GB Sandisk MicroSD TransFlash Memory Card (Bulk), January 9, 2007
This is a great deal! AND, it includes the card sleeve! Buying "bulk" simply means minus the retail packaging. Everying else is the same, but the price is just about 40% less. I will always buy "bulk" items of this type, because you are not sacrifice anything...just saving money!
Glitch card, May 30, 2007
This chip is billed as bright and NEW means "completely compatible" with the products intended for use. It functions in good health in my Samsung A707 when it is recognized by the phone. You see, respectively time you turn on your phone the chip is not recognized. You need to unseat/reseat the chip for the phone to see it respectively time it is turned on. This is annoying since you need a nice strong, long, fingernail to do it. A random glitch? No, equal thing occurs next to at least 4 other A707's that I know of. These include different discount Sandisk chips bought from different vendors. Either the phone have the issue or the discounted chips were defective. When your phone says "memory card have unrecognized format do you want to format?" SAY "NO." Just reset the card and look for the card icon in the upper right foot display.
WORKS WITH LG CU500 -- This is the card Cingular recommends., January 18, 2007
Cingular sells this card online near its phones (like the LG CU500 I just bought) for $49.99 delivered. Digital Media Source, the Amazon Marketplace partner, sell the bulk version for $25 delivered. It comes in the blink of an eye by first class mail and the delivered price is still partially that of Cingular.
Cingular apparently sells and recommends the actual SanDisk card near the CU500 because of many reports that other manufacturers' cards don't work with it. Personally, I reason that this is either a manufactuing quality issue or a user-installation issue (not spaces the card properly), because all MicroSD cards should meet indistinguishable standard. Nevertheless, Cingular sells and recommends the SanDisk card, and the Cingular user forums come across to have basically no complaints roughly speaking the SanDisk product and random complaints ("My Kingston card didn't work" "Mine did." "Well, mine didn't" etc.) about cards from other manufacturer with regard to the CU500. Sandisk invented the concept of MicroSD and is a entrepreneur with a reputation for the highest level, so the big complaint on the forums about having to use the SanDisk card is that it is expensive.
So SanDisk it is if I want a minimal hassle. But as expected that $49 price from Cingular is frustrating when you can get a non-SanDisk 1GB card from a site like Newegg for $17. Enter the best of both worlds from Amazon: an actual no-kidding *official* SanDisk card for $25 deliver. Now that's worth my money. The only concern that one might have is that adjectives you get in the little envelope from Digital Media Source is for a while soft plastic container with the Sandisk card and an adapter in it. That's it. No instructions. No other information. Nada. However, given that Cingular provides detailed instructions online as to how to install the card contained by your particular phone (like my CU500), you don't need anything more. I am totally delighted with my purchase, which arrived at my door in NYC 3 days after I ordered it (one daylight for the USPS to get it here, 2 days for Digital Media to send it). Highly recommended.
This is So Great, August 20, 2007
Freakishly simple, effectual and well designed. I got it for my LG AX8600 cellphone (Alltel's newspaper of the LG VX8600), and after a bit of worry (the SanDisk MicroSD is not built like a tank) I finally took the plunge and stuck it contained by my phone. A neat click -- on my phone you remove it by pressing on it again so that it will eject -- plus a simple format process and the little MicroSD card was geared up for photos, video or music. To load or delete files place the MicroSD into a transflash adapter, then put the transflash into a SanDisk SDDR-103 MobileMate SD+ 5-in-1 Mobile Reader (SD/ MiniSD/ MMC/ RS-MMC/ TransFlash, Retail Package), which you plug into your computer's USB slot. From in that you drag and drop whichever files you choose (though my phone does not seem to see mp4s.) Overall a great package.
Great price, great product but..., March 26, 2007
All things considered I give the product a 5 out of 5 stars. It was as described and has be functioning as expected. Little to no problems with the install. Transfer of data be also a snap once the adapter problem was addressed. Fits my motorola KRZR approaching a glove.
Two points of caution and concern:
1. The adapter that came near the micro has a port that fits so snugly that without great restraint, care and jewelers tools I almost couldn't get the card stern out of the read adapter without force. Fortunately I own another reader that doesn't require the adapter, so I just round file the piece of crap adapter that came with it, once I get them apart!
2. The corresponding shipping policy for this product is less than satisfactory and leaves me thought like they've taken advantage of me and pocketed the harmonize of the exorbitant "Per item/Per lb." shipping rates.
The final analysis... Because of the impacts of both poor adapter functionality and questionable shipping policies, they get 4 out of 5 stars.
Works fine surrounded by Samsung SGH-A707 phone, January 15, 2007
I bought this sandisk 1GB microSD (bulk) from Digital Media Source through amazon. The shipping is smooth and fast. The card is working well beside a card reader in a PC and in the Samsung SGH-A707 phone. I can whip pictures, videos, and play MP3 music on it. I have used SD for heaps years, but it is the first time for to use the microSD. At first try, the memory card wasn't recognized in PC and phone. I used a bathtissue to erase the contact pins, consequently it works fine. The bulk package is about partially price of its retail package. The only difference is that it doesn't come near a plastic package cover with a warrantee quality newspaper card. But it works great. The microsSD is tiny, it is weak mechanically. Besides cleaning the pins, the alginment is as vital when you plug in the socket.
