Anybody used them or heard of any issues?

Thanks for any help.

I have two of these that I've been using regularly with my NX5U (and before that with my Canon HF100). Going on more than a year with one of them. No problems whatsoever. Remains one of the better deals out there for a class 6 card. There's a deal that includes a reader for 40 bucks or so. I think newegg has quite a few reviews on this card and most of them are positive.

I've never looked into this but people are always saying there are only a few manufacturers of SDHC cards out there and companies just rebrand them. One thing is for sure, brands like SanDisk charge waaaay too much for some of their high end cards.

Thanks Matt.

I'll check out the reviews on newegg and probably go ahead and order a pair of them today.

I'll back Matt's reply and say my class 6 Transcend cards seem to be the deal of the moment, work flawlessly in the NX5, and Amazon's hit the best price point.

And just to say that you can get three 16gb cards for the price of one 32gb card. With the NX5's automatic switch-over between cards and the hot-swappable ability, it's the way to go.

Bought a Transend the other day but am going to buy a few Kingston 32g Class 10's as my primary cards until I'm confident with the Transends after a few shoots.

Hey guys, try the new Transcend 16gb class 10, only a couple of /$ more than class 6. Just purchased a couple for my EX1, no problems at all. I have used Transcend class 6 cards for over 12 months in both an EX1 and more lately a Canon 550D, would not dream of using anything else.

Trancend 32GB Class 6 for my NX5 - Great for me so far

A few weeks back I bought my NX5 from Armato's in New York, and with it got the Transcend 32 GB Class 6 at their recommendation. In the time since the combo has worked flawlessly. With gigs approaching, I got a second identical card, this time from B&H at about $95. For $5 more they sell it with a simple reader but were out of stock in that one.

I have a Canon HF10, which also uses a 32 GB SDHC, and for that one I got a Kingston Class 4. It has also worked flawlessly, but it was recommended that I go class 6 or higher for the NX5.

I believe the NX5 will work with class 4 cards, and I've read that there's a tradeoff with the higher-speed cards (less write cycles / reliability).
