Verbatim Premium

RH Numbers

Verbatim has a vast array of Flash memory products, the Premium SDHC cards being the flagship range. The Class 10 cards are available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities. The company also does a single 64GB SDXC Class 10 card.

The SDHCs are aimed at professional and amateur photographers using digital cameras, and professional users of SLRs may find the 10MBps read and write speeds a little slow.
