One of the very few SLC SD cards

Summary: What most people are not aware of, is that there are two distinct Flash RAM technologies: one is SLC (single level cell) and the other is MLC (multiple level cell). Without getting into the technical details of these technologies, the consumer should know that MLC offers savings to the manufacturer, because MLC Flash can store more data on the same surface as SLC.
Summary: I have purchased Kingston cards for years and enjoyed their quality. Recently got this card (blue sticker instead of brown) and my camera keeps saying "can't recognize file format". So I put it into the card reader and see what happens. Individual photos show valid file size but when you click the photo file, there is nothing to see. I have reformat this card many times using WinXP utility as well as my own camera.
Summary: I usually use SanDisc for my Nikon D40 and D60, but have some "regular" Kingston's as a back-up. I found the Kingston Elite Pro and decided to give them a try. I was not disappointed, they seem to write faster than my SanDisc Ultra's, and I get consistent performance with the read process. I have decided to make the Elite Pro my SD card of choice.
Summary: As they said, poor men pay twice. Don't buy the regular SD card for your digital SLR. Get the one supports higher write speed. I shoot RAW+JPEG with a Nikon D50, this SD card can keep up with my continuously rapid firing without a problem. I used a cheaper regular SD card before and I needed to wait for a couple of seconds after 2nd or 3rd shot. Highly recommended.
Summary: I used it in my Nikon D50 camera. I'm sure that a SanDisk Extreme II/III would have been faster, but this was fine for 2.5FPS which is my camera's max speed. Advantages - it's inexpensive and works. Disadvantages - it may be slow for faster cameras. It's not SDHC, therefore it's limited to a 2GB capacity. Fine for legacy SD equipment that cannot address SDHC cards.
Pros: Durable construction, Easy To Use, Large Capacity, Reliable Performance
Summary: I can't add much to what has already been said save this detail: Works just fine with a Dell 1330 as a vista ready boost device. The only downside is that the card sticks out of the slot very slightly (say 1/16").
Summary: I didn't think my Casio EX-Z40 was that old, so I went ahead an ordered this 2GB 50X Kingston memory card in the hopes that I could take a ton more photos. Of course, my first experience using this memory card was at my Great Grandmother's 100th birthday. I went to shoot video and once I finished and went to save it the screen popped up with "System Error". WHAT?!! This became very common with this memory card.
