Build Quality


Not much can be said about the card itself. It feels like any conventional SD memory card, except this ProMax SDHC card boasts a heck of a lot more storage inside. The build quality is up to par with gold plated connectors and a small "lock" switch on side for write protection.

According to the back of the package, the ATP memory card is also waterproof, shockproof, and resistant to extreme temperatures. They claim that it'll survive temperatures as low as -13 degrees Fahrenheit (-25 Celsius) and as high as 185 degrees Fahrenheit (85 Celsius). Pretty tough.

Free Card Reader

It's surprising that most other SDHC cards on the market don't come with a free card reader, given that most computers and laptops are still lacking in a proper reader for this format. Sure, you can use your compatible digital camera or camcorder and connect it to your computer, but who wants to do that?

The plus side is certainly the fact that this card is free. I also like the unique sliding mechanism that retracts the USB connector when not in use and swallows up the SDHC card when in use. The design is quite smart and makes for a resonably compact reader.

Unfortunately, there are several build quality issues with the reader. The slot where you insert the SDHC card can be a little difficult to navigate, the slider mechanism isn't the smoothest in the world, and the plastic housing feels very cheap to the touch. The seals are quite poor. It should also be noted that because of its thickness, you may have some difficulty inserting the card reader into an available USB port, especially if said port is recessed or flanked on either side by other USB cables.
