K1lo, SDHC had a maximum physical capacity of 32GB. Any SD card with a larger capacity will be SDXC. The technology is backwards compatible, so you can use SDHC in an SDXC slot, but not vice versa.

Anyone tested larger cards in the Linx 7?

64GB Kingston (SDXC10/64GB) works fine in the Linx 7, and I can try 128GB when I am next in the office as I have one there.

Good to know! Will likely order a 64 GB card in the next couple of days... the 32GB storage on my Linx7 is rather limiting. Can't imagine what the 16GB versions are like! :?

Cheers sambartle, I'll pick up a 64GB card. I've just spent £59 on a tablet, so I can't bring myself to spend double that just on extra storage!

Hope the 128GB cards drop in price soon, around £50 and i'd be very tempted. Could be a long time though :-(

I will look to buy a memory card soon, just wondering from people's experiences how the different companies compare?

Not sure if there's much of a difference between different manufactures, the big difference is in the Class or speed of the memory. Still researching to discover what would be best but I'll probably go with a Class 10 or better card.

Yeah I don't think there's much difference between the makes, Samsung, Sandisk, Kingston, Transcend, they're all pretty reliable these days in my experience. I've found the card readers on the Linx tablets throttle the performance of class 10 cards, could probably get away with a class 6 if it's a cheaper alternative.

As others have said, there not much between manufacturers...

Although there is between sellers. Be very wary of buying off eBay and the likes, there are an awful lot of fake cards out there - either slower than advertised or worse and it being a smaller card, only formatted to show as a larger card. Buy from somewhere reputable.

I absolutely second this. eBay is great for some things but memory cards and flash drives you should stay away from on there.
