Kingston 8GB microSDHC Mobility Kit Review

by Michael Kwan on May 5, 2009

Conclusion

While the Kingston MBLY/8GB Mobility Multi Kit is officially listed at $43.99, you can find it on sale at a variety of online retailers for about $25 or so. This represents a pretty great value for an 8GB microSDHC memory card, especially when you add in the versatility of the three provided adapters. Buying the USB card reader by itself could easily run you about ten bucks.

Flash memory is getting cheaper by the day, so by the time you read this review, the price may have dropped even further on this Kingston memory card kit. If you’re looking for a simple and efficient way to use one memory card across several different devices, you really can’t go wrong with a great kit like this.

The performance (as a Class 4 memory product) isn’t exactly league-leading and the overall build quality isn’t the best of the best, but you are getting a very good value from Kingston with this kit.
