Dear readers,

I'm searching a for a new SD card for my HD2 for a while now and wanted to buy a 32gb class 10 microsd card from samsung.
But then i saw a new cards with new classes called "UHS".
I also saw one of them having the class 6 and the UHS class.

I have a few question regarding this:

1. Does this UHS class work on the HD2?
2. Is it possible for a card to have a normal class and a UHS class?
3. if not, are UHS 1 cards as fast as class 10 cards on devices that do not support UHS?
4. How can UHS 1 be cheaper then class 10?

adata 32gb micrsosd UHS 1: cant post url...

the same card for 22 euro's: cant post url...

samsung 32gb microsd class 10 for 26 euro's: cant post url...

I hope this topic will answer the the questions i think other people have too.

kind regards,

4rjan

Can't answer for sure if they are 100% compatible with HD2 hardware(there is certain hardware requirement for UHS), but in theory any speed after class 8/10 is pointless. Class 10 is close to HD2 hardware bandwith limit. You won't benefit that.

I was also looking for a 32GB class 10 card and found the UHS-i type, but in the reviews i saw said about compatibility issues in non compatible devices or transfer speeds relatively low in devices without UHS-i compatibility.

To avoid problems i purchased one Samsung Class 10 card, works perfectly in my HD2 and don't have to worry.

Thumbs down
That is exactly what i thought, that the uhs-i has a lack of performance on not supported uhs-i devices and that they are not completely backwards compatible to normal class 10 speed.
Do you maybe have a URL of those complaints?

That would be expected for transferring relatively small files and using windows formatting as the random read/write speed (most frequently used) will be slower with a higher class, whereas the sequential read/write speed will increase. This may beneficial for users with WP7 but if you use it anywhere else it will seem much slower.

But do UHS class 1 cards run ass class 10 cards when they are used with non supported UHS devices? If it is true what you guys are saying then its not.
I can't find anything about it on the English Wikipedia, but on the dutch Wikipedia it says it runs like class 10 on non supported devices:
http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/SD-kaart

UHS: MB (Megabyte) Mb (Megabit)
UHS Class 1 10 MB/s (min) 80 Mb/s (min)
UHS-I 104 MB/s (max) 832 Mb/s (max)
UHS Class 2 105 MB/s (min) 840 Mb/s (min)
UHS-II 300 MB/s (max) 2400 Mb/s (max)

Home Frequently Asked Questions Memory Card
WHAT IS UHS-1 ?

"UHS-1" or more accurately "UHS-I" stands for "Ultra High Speed" - 1 and is a speed class for SDHC and SXDC memory cards.

UHS-I is the fastest category of card available today with a bus interface speed of up to 104 MB/s.

An SDHC UHS-I card will work in any SDHC compatible device at lower speeds, but to take advantage of the UHS-I speed, a UHS-I compatible device is essential.

the question is what are those "lower" speeds?

The speeds would be the Class 6 or Class 10 speeds, depending on what's listed on the card. Of course, even that can be bottlenecked by your device's cache.
