Win a SanDisk Ultra II SDHC Card, A Travel Must Have!

Whether you are traveling out of the country or a couple of hours away on vacation or business, an SD card is a must-have item. There is so much an SD card can be used for!

I received a SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card to review, as well as one to give away to one lucky Denver Guide reader. I am embarrassed to admit that just last Christmas I discovered how great it is to have an SD card. Just one card turned our camera that only held 15 pictures (yes, ridiculous I know) into a camera that could hold thousands of pictures! Now, whenever I want to save some pictures or send some by email off to the relatives, I stick my SD card into my laptop and I am set.

The SanDisk Ultra II card is definitely a step up from the first card I bought. I am giving my old one to my picture happy daughter and keeping this one for ME!

The one thing that made this SD card so different from my other one is the fact that the wait time between camera shots is so much less. Just last week someone was making fun of my camera because they took about 5 pictures as I was only able to take one!

I am also enjoying the faster download time from the card to my laptop. Within a few seconds, I have all my newest shots on my computer – saved and ready to what I want with them.

Here is a list of the key benefits and features of the SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card:

  • SanDisk Ultra II SDHC cards offer fast read and write speeds of 15 megabytes per second2 (15MB/s), reducing the wait time between camera shots, and the download time when transferring photos and video clips to a computer.
  • SanDisk Ultra II SDHC cards can hold a large number of high-resolution images or video, with available capacities from 2GB3 to 32GB.
  • With increased storage and speed, these cards meet the demands of digital photography and video, enabling consumers to capture, preserve and relive precious moments.
  • SanDisk Ultra II SDHC cards have a Class 4 performance rating and are fully-backwards compatible; working in any camera, card reader or other device that supports SDHC cards.4

These cards are not just for your camera! They’re ideal for digital point-and-shoot cameras, video camcorders, digital picture frames, and can even be used in netbooks to expand storage. 95% of netbooks have an SDHC card slot which is great for business travelers!

Could you use this great SD card? I thought so! I have one SanDisk Ultra II SDHC 4GB card, that has a retail value of $36.99, to give away. You can win one just in time for the end of summer, those back to school pictures/videos and business traveling which will be picking up soon.
