I've only got limited experience with them, but I've had good luck (so far) with PNY.

A Kingston micro-SDHC card I own seems to have unreasonably high power usage (kills the battery life of the device it is used in).
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

I have 2x Patriot LX Series 16GB class 10 cards. I use one in my tablet and the other in my SLR camera. I haven't had any problems with them in 3 months in either device. The speed on them is more than fast enough for my camera (Canon Rebel XT). I'd definitely recommend them based on my experience with them.

I usually go with SanDisk because they developed the SD standard.

That being said, I'll often pick them up based on read/write spead or Class.

At the moment, I think most of my flash cards (mix of SD, microSD, and CF) are PNY, SanDisk, or Transcend. No particular issues noted, yet.

Thank you for the recommendations. My brother-in-law is about to have a kid and I do not want to get a flash card that will malfunction. I will probably stick with PNY, SanDisk and Transcend.

Thanks again.
