@birniei: I doubt anyone would be that slow witted to think that a cheap card would damage a camera. But, for those who are still in kindergarten: a cheap card may fail or not function at peak desired performance.

@birniei: thanks for the info.Im still new to this whole DSLR thing. Have had my nikon d5100 for only about 2 weeks. I get that $20 may not sound like much compared to the price of the camera. But hey it's still an extra $20 i'd get to keep in my pocket. And this is a deals site right? lol

@blackbradpitt: This advice is primarily due to the fact that DSLRs tend to have high megapixel resolution and are able to rapidly shoot multiple photos, and therefore require high write speeds to avoid "busy" messages while the camera writes to the media card, potentially causing you to miss a photo opportunity.

This is a class 10 card, which is currently the fastest available read/write speed on the retail market that I'm aware of. Sometimes cheap cards are discovered to operate below advertised speeds, though this is rare. Another risk is durability, but I've so far had great luck with the cheapest of flash media.

I suggest you peruse the 22 reviews posted, and perhaps Google "Ridata Lightning Series 32GB SDHC Review" to decide for yourself.

@pleepleus: One would infer from your comment that there is a concern that a cheap SD card could somehow damage a DSLR or other electronic device. I have never heard of a device being damaged by (properly inserted) SD or any other storage media. The only risk as I see it, is that if the card fails, you will likely lose any data stored on the card. A risk certainly, but one that is largely irrelevant to the price of the camera.

@pleepleus: I'm not sure what the $2 your referring to is. I was speaking of comparing it to a name brand such as SanDisk. They are about $20 more, and if you want a few of them that can really add up

I'd say if you paid $1,000+ for a good DSLR, is it really worth the gamble to save $2 on a memory card?

can't decide wether or not to get one of these to use for my dslr. i've heard stay away from non name brands, when using for dslr camera's
