I seen on pricelist from SLS. But I still trust Sandisk or Kingston coz won't wanna try out something that ended up like Transcend. Buy a piece of mind. :)

Yes it's pretty bad, so far all the card failures I heard from my friends are all transcend.
Hrm, I bought a Transcend card back in 2006 when I had my K100D... It worked for all of 5 years... I think it was still working when I gave it away.

Perhaps along the way the QC got bad, but I have had a good experience with that card.

can't understand for sure their sd cards, but i have a silicon power class 6 microsd from memory world. i'd say its cheap and does its job.

of course if u can afford jus go for sandisk and the other well known brands.

Transcend is ok, no issues so far.

If u don't subject to abuse or extreme temperatures, should be fine

i still have a couple vintage of pieces of 2GB silicon power CF cards... now relegated to be thumbdrives. still kicking after all these years.

actually, reliability for individual batches is really down to QC. even sandisk and lexar can fail, if you happen to be suay enough to buy the wrong batch.

It all boils down to the QC ba.

Some brands have a history of 10,000 sales but only 1 complain about failure while others may have 1 in 100.

Personally I feel that Sandisk being such a well known brand, definitely have their fair share of complains, but if you factor in their sales, the chances that you buy a faulty card is low. E.g. both Sandisk and Transcend has 10 complains each, but Sandisk sold 10,000 cards whereas Transcend sold 1,000. Something along that line. :)

Very True abt the QC , doesnt really matter abt brands for me as long it works , well some brands have Big $ to spend on the advertisment so it has it fair share on branding , even top brands fails too at time -

i have Silicon , Kingston and sandisk and photofast - each i have bought several cards before , till today it some still alive and kicking , some already died ( including the top brand )
