    Regarding to those who asked about SD vs SDHC, theyre the same thing. HC just stands for high capacity.

    I have a 16GB class 4 Kingston. Loads up plenty fast but if you want rea speed, get a class 10...lol. They are well under a $100 now for the 32GB compared to last year this time.

    That's not really true, they are different standards and SDHC cards will not necessarily work in an SD slot.

    That Lexmark card looks good value but I searched high and low about a fortnight ago and absolutely everywhere was out of stock. Do you know anywhere that has them in stock?

    Transfer speed.

    I find class 2 (2MB per second) more than adequate for both video and music (but only if you use a dedicated card reader instead of the phone).

    I do this for multi GB transfers (with my card reader i get 4MB speeds on a class 2 card and 6MB on a class 4).

    I've never paid more than

    I usually go by how long the warranties are and existing user reviews (i won't buy ANYTHING if there is no user reviews, far too risky).

    32gb Micro SD cards are currently very expensive, you don't want to buy one that will only last / be covered for replacement for only a year now do you?

    So if I understand correctly, if I buy a 32GB Kingston C4 and I record my 1080p video, I will not see any difference in quality as opposed to a C10. As well as running apps? And that I would only notice the difference if I transfer data to my PC?

    I just purchased a Kingston Class 4 32GB SD Microcard for my SGS2 at US$38 from HK and it would only load 4GB. The E Bay supplier gave me my money back and was convinced card was not second but from China manufacturing plant that was reputable. Anyway I am now looking for another 32GB Class 6 SD card in another brand . Kingston is lost for for me. I have confirmed formatting on PC and within phone keeps formatting to 32Gb fine but will only load 4GB of music/videos etc

    Got my 64GB Micro SDXC card today from Sandisk - not meant to be compatible with the SGSII but if you format it to Fat32 it seems to be working fine...

    Ebay is full of fake memory cards, buy from a proper retailer instead.

    I got my 32gb class 4 Kingston microSD card about 6 months ago from ebuyer.com for 50 quid and it's still going strong.

    Can you update us on how things are going after you have filled up all 64gb?

    Cheers

    I will. Although it works for now there is always the question of whether it will corrupt itself or something in longer term use outside the manufacturers guidance.

    Not sure if the warranty applies when I've changed the format of the card and using it in a device that isn't recommended!

    Does the class number matter for apps or games? Say if I wanna play modern combat 3(not out yet on android but will be this month) it's a 1.7gb game once installed and that game is really heavy on the graphics for my iPhone, would that game be slowed down or any performance drop if it were to be on a class 2 or 4 card?

    See this topic. A Class 4 card should be more than adequate if storage is the main use.
