SanDisk 4GB Ultra II SDHC Plus
SanDisk introduced a new capacity in its high-performance SanDisk Ultra II line: a 4GB SDHC Plus card. The SanDisk Ultra II SDHC Plus 4GB card offers fast read and write speeds of 10 megabytes per second (10MB/sec), reducing the waiting time between camera shots and the download time when transferring photos and video to a computer. “With video recording becoming a standard feature on digital still cameras, memory cards need more capacity and speed to capture not only high-quality photos, but also video” said Susan Park, senior product marketing manager for SanDisk Ultra II cards. The 4GB SanDisk Ultra II SDHC Plus card has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price in the United States of $79.99.

Susan Park continues: “Our SanDisk Ultra II line of high-capacity memory cards provides increased storage and speed to meet the growing demands of digital photography, so consumers can capture, preserve, and relive their most precious moments.” Beyond speed and capacity, the 4GB SanDisk Ultra II SDHC Plus card offers both SD and USB functionality in one card. Designed with SanDisk’s unique, patented Hinge Lock technology, the card may be inserted into a USB port on any computer. This two-in-one SD-plus-USB feature eliminates the need to carry cables or card readers to transfer photos and videos from cameras or camcorders.
SanDisk 4GB Ultra II SDHC Plus - High Definition and Demand
“High-resolution digital still cameras and high-definition video camcorders using flash memory are changing the way people capture their memories,” said Ron Glaz, program director for digital capture devices and photofinishing research at IDC. “But the extra clarity and detail of these images require significant increases in the speed and storage of flash memory, creating demand for capacities such as 4GB that would have seemed outlandish a few years ago.” Despite its small size, the hinge is sturdy - having survived more than 10,000 open-close cycles in SanDisk’s durability testing.
