SanDisk 4GB Ultra II SDHC - SD Speed Class Rating
The 4GB SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card adheres to the SD 2.00 specification, a completely new design that is required for cards and cameras to support capacities from 4GB to 32GB. The specification was developed by the SD Association, an industry standards board, which also defined three speed classes for speed and performance capabilities. These cards adhere to the SD Speed Class Rating specification which defines a minimum sustained transfer speed for SDHC cards.
