Best sd cards for pmd 661 & best place to buy
« on: June 12, 2010, 04:55:16 PM »
I've seen posts referring to using the san disk extreme III 8 gb class 6, san disk ultra II 8gb, & the PNY class 4 16 gb.

Doug stated "I like the Lexar and Panasonic cards best. Be sure to get a class 6 or better card. The sweet spot is 16 gigs right now, more than enough to do the job. " I'll be going to cd so I'll probably be using 16/44.1 or 24/48 so I should get @ least 8 hours for a 16gb card and 4 hours for a 8gb card right?

Any other suggestions for using w/my OCM PMD 661? I'll be using it for the first time(s) for p-groove in Fl. from 6/16 - 6/19.

Since I am recording for multiple shows am I better off w/16 gb? If so do I not want to reformat for each show (lose files/data)?

I saw a post that Sam's club has Toshiba 16 gb cards (used w/r-9) to pick up locally - anyone try them w/pmd 661?

Where would you suggest to buy them from?

Thanks,
MBHOTAPER

Newegg is great, but I've found Amazon to be cheaper more and more often these days, and shipping is always free over $25.  The problem with Amazon is that it's nowhere near as good as Newegg at FINDING products.  So I use Newegg to narrow down my choices, check the reviews, and identify a model number and then search for that exact model at Amazon.

I'd also check out www.chiefvalue.com. They are a subsiderary of Newegg. Watch for free shipping deals.

I just bought an OADE concert mod PMD 661. I asked Doug about his recommendation about flash cards. He said they had been getting enough complaints about the Sandisk cards that they took them off their rec list. He said Panasonic and Lexar have been very reliable for many people. He said if I can afford it, to get a class 10 card. So I found a 16 GB class 10 card at Amazon which seems to be a good buy at 59.89 + shipping:

NOw to figure out what choice I will make for external power.  ;D

Rechargeable AA's are what I use for powering the 661 now.  Very reliable powering source and reduces the gear weight and footprint a smidge...

The Class 10 cards are waaaaaayyyyy overkill.  I have never had an issue with my Sandisk cards or my PNY card.

Does anyone know what Class the Marantz 2GB SD card that the units comes with is?

I just ordered a 16GB Transcend Class 10 SDHC card from Amazon for about $28, well see how that ends up working out. I also have a Kingston 16GB Class 4 SDHC card that I was hoping to use. Perhaps Ill be sticking to the Class 10 and leaving the 4 in my Canon S95 point and shoot.

I just had a brand new Class 10 Sandisk sdhc fail miserably in my 661 and others have had issues with recent SD purchases for their 661's too.  See the link below:

http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=118094.msg1878252#msg1878252

 I don't know if it was a manufacturing quality control issue or a Class 10 sdhc issue in my case.  I returned the Class 10 sdhc for a full refund and I will NOT be purchasing another Class 10 in the forseeable future.  Please let us know if the class 10 card that you purchased performs without any issues.

The Class 10 cards are waaaaaayyyyy overkill. 

For Digital stereo recorders Class 4 Cards should be enough ... higher classes are maybe reasonable for simultaneous recording in 4 or more channels @ 24/96.
