Kingston's Class 10 16GB microSDHC card has a data transfer rate of 10MB/s
As flash memory continues to push the boundaries of how much storage it can pack into its small frame, sometimes we forget about the time it's required to save information on them. That's where Kingston comes to save the day by doing something completely different by focusing their attention on the data transfer rate of their microSDHC cards as opposed to the amount of storage it holds. Kingston's Class 10 16GB microSDHC card has a minimum data transfer of 10MB/s – something that can have a direct effect on how long you'll be sitting around as it's saving something like a 1080p recording. Wendy Lecot, Flash business manager, said that "With the new speed class, host devices such as high-definition cameras or the latest smartphones are being designed to optimize their write performance to take advantage of the more responsive memory card speeds." If you plan on buying one, just be prepared to pay its $138 price tag that includes the adapters for SD and miniSD while its lifetime warranty will give you peace of mind if an unfortunate event were to happen.
