I don’t have the 8-gigger, obviously, but I love the dual functionality of my 1GB SanDisk Ultra II SD card. You see, it looks like a regular SD card by day, but then you can actually bend it in half to reveal a flat USB connector. In this way, you can have the contents read just about anywhere with an available USB port. Not all computers have built-in SD card readers.
This is even more true when it comes to the SDHC format. Most people don’t have integrated readers in their laptops, so the new Ultra II SDHC card from SanDisk is an absolute godsend. Like its predecessors, it has a built-in USB connector, but unlike its predecessors, this one is loaded with a full eight gigabytes of storage capacity. This makes it an excellent solution for people with high-megapixel cameras or HD camcorders. Or how about the Asus Eee PC?
The SanDisk Ultra II 8GB SDHC memory card is set to launch next month with an asking price of $99.
