Kingston 256MB microSD Memory Card ReviewWed, Mar 15, 2006 - 12:00 AM
Final Thoughts and Conclusions
If you are reading this article it is highly likely that you are trying to increase the storage capacity on your cellular phone. The Kingston 256MB microSD card expands the memory storage on your phone by 242MB which then allows you to store more songs, minutes of video and e-mails. With a 256MB card you should expect the following storage capacities:
- 1 Megapixel Camera – 393 Pictures
- MP3 & WMA Songs – 48 Song Titles
- MPEG1 Videos – 17 minutes of Video
- E-Mails – 5440 Individual e-mails
With capacities like this it is easy to understand why many people want more memory for storage on their cell phones. While the 256MB microSD card is the largest available from Kingston we would expect larger versions to come out in the near future.
The Kingston SDC/256 card Kingston comes with everything you need to use the card. It comes with a plastic storage case and a microSD to SD adapter card. The adapter allows you to use the microSD card in any Secure Digital (SD) reader and any recent notebook PC with a SD reader built in. To top it all off the Kingston microSD card comes with lifetime warranty, but only if you don’t lose it. With flash memory becoming so small the only thing you have to worry about is losing it!
The hardest thing about buying microSD is finding it. Before posting this article we went to the local Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, Office Depot and Best Buy retail stores in St. Louis, Missouri only to find Best Buy being the only store to carry them. If you are looking buy a microSD card and live in a medium to small sized town buying one online will give you more brand selection and lower prices. The Kingston SDC/256 256-MB microSD card we reviewed here today can be purchased directly from the Kingston website for $32.
