    Which of these on shop temp is best/fastest? Does it matter? Are they the same? Is there a brand that has more stable cards than the other? Which do you like?

    I've always been using SanDisk, but really I have no idea which is better. My mom has a Kingston and I don't really notice anything different....

    I use both and like both. I have had issues with some jank Kingston's in the past from foreign shops, though, so maybe I'd give the slight edge to Sandisk.

    I prefer Kingston since I've found it to be reliable ever since I started using it. If you're gonna purchase kingston sd cards from Shoptemp take note that the cards they sell are class 2.

    That was an interesting blog post.

    I think I'll be staying with SanDisk then.... Unless somebody else has something bad to say about them too, [​IMG].

    I have several products of both brands and I like them very much.
    They are very similar, so I voted Both on the poll.
    Really, either way is good.

    Samsung or SanDisk for me [​IMG]

    I've known that Kingston were badgers for years - having received a Kingston (which was in reality a re-badged Sandisk) CF card in the dim & distant past. Kingston RAM can come from any of the manufacturers Hynix, Hyundai, Samsung, etc. and thus I see no point in paying them to paint a new label on and popping it in shiny packaging - shiny packaging doesn't make it work better.

    the Kingston 4 and 8GB they are selling right now are class 4 [​IMG] so might want those over the class 2 sandisks.
    though be quick because they may not be able to keep those class 4's, next batch might be class 2 back again.

    I use neither. I've been using A-data which has been extremely reliable for me [​IMG].

    I must say that both are extremely reputable brands but I must say that I go with Kingston simply because I have had a couple of Sandisk cards fail on me. Not sure why but it doesn' really matter now.

    There are better choices out there for microSDs, but in the case of Kingston Vs Sandisk, I would say Kingston.
