Have you been searching for a Secure Digital card that is able to accommodate all of the pictures you take on your next vacation or looking for more storage on your Internet tablet? If so, you have likely come across the latest Secure Digital High Capacity cards that overcome the earlier 2GB capacity limitation of traditional Secure Digital cards. However, there are just so many SDHC cards on the market and they are all priced similarly from different manufacturers, so what should you choose? At hand today in this weekend review are two 4GB SDHC cards from OCZ and Crucial.

OCZ & Crucial SDHC Features:

- 4GB Capacity
- Class 6
- Write-Protection Switch
- Warranties: Lifetime (Crucial), 3-Year (OCZ)
- Complies With Secure Digital High Capacity Specification
- Note: SDHC is not backwards compatible with SD devices or card readers


The OCZ 4GB SDHC card we are looking at in this review has a model number of OCZSDHC6-4GB and the Crucial model number is CT4GBSDHC. Both cards arrived in similar blister packaging and coming with both cards was a small reusable plastic container to protect this non-volatile memory when not installed in a card reader or SDHC-compatible device. Crucial had even included an instruction manual with this 4GB SDHC card. Yes, they included a genuine instruction manual. It basically says you should hold the SDHC card by its edges, slide the card into the appropriate slot, and if the card doesn't fit in, don't force it but you must need to flip the card around to insert it. Now if you cannot figure out how to install an SD/SDHC card without following instructions, there are other problems at hand.
