This is the first SDHC card I have ever reviewed which is really quite amazing since I own close to 20 of these cards. Unfortunately I am moving and they are all tucked away in a box somewhere. The product I was planning on reviewing for today actually expired during testing, not a good way to end the month, but luckily the Silicon Power SDHC Class 10 32GB card was right on top of a box I just packed. In the future we will run more tests on these products and get an annual round-up started. Till then the Silicon Power SDHC Class 10 will be our baseline.
Silicon Powers lack of a US network of resellers really hurts their products when it comes to pricing. The card we tested today cost twice as much as their competitor's product. In this economy spending 2x for a product isn't very likely even if that product comes with a higher build quality. Silicon Power does make very high quality products, they just need to get that whole price thing in line with the competition in the US. In Europe and the rest of the world Silicon Power products are priced a lot more competitively.
Silicon Power's SDHC Class 10 proved in testing to be around twice as fast as the minimum specification calls for. With that in mind the card should give users room to grow and carry this card onto their next SD using product. 32GB is a lot of storage space and it will allow many photographers to keep their images on the card a lot longer before peeling them off in an archive. I know my wife loves having a lot of pictures on her point and shoot so she can show off the boys on demand.
