    Which is the best to get? I've seen some people are having issues with different classes and I want to get it right the first time!

    I'm looking at around

    It is a pretty low class. Id rather get a higher class and lower capacity.

    SanDisk definitely my choice. Perfectly happy with my class 4

    i would not recommend a class2 card, but as Phen says, you'll have problems to get a 16gb class6 for that money--you could last week, at mymemory and I am sure an offer will arise again some time.

    Buying memory cards from anyone but very highly regarded sellers is normally a bad idea. You'll normally end up with a lot less than you paid for.

    class 6 is the best bet for decent video playback and soon (when we get froyo) 720p recording, as the data transfer speed is much better. The class refers to the minimum speed in MB, so a class 6 card is guaranteed to write at at least 6MB.
    This also helps when transferring stuff to the card on your pc, or by USB.

    Yeah I was definately going to go for a Sandisk card. So, class 6, it seems, is the best? Would class 4 not be ok? Class 6's say they're tested at 1080p and work great, would class 4 not be ok for 720p (when Froyo arrives)?

    Unbranded card with no customer reviews? Not a good idea. Ebay top rated sellers are a safer bet, but again look for branded cards with a manufacturers warranty, and make sure the seller has a fair return policy.

    It seems that class 6 is being comfortable. HD recording and playback is around 3MB/s (which shows why Class 2's are rubbish for both) so class 4 would cover it. However, I'm thinking that when this forthcoming card gets pretty full it's going to be slow to load on a class 4. So, class 6 it is for

    Yeah, definately. Just showing how the item literally next to that one in the search results he showed was much cheaper.

    This is the seller and item I'm looking at: 16GB micro SD Class 6 Memory Card SDHC microSD 16 GB on eBay (end time 30-Jul-10 16:31:21 BST)

    3 years limited warrenty. 14 day refund or replacement policy. Seems alright to me.

    Can't find any class 6 32GB Micro SDHC cards. I think that'll perhaps be a next year or Christmas jobby.

    EDIT:

    Ohhh, low feedback. 100%, but only 30? Ouch.

    EDIT 2:

    Scratch that. I'm fairly confident.

    Got the card today.

    Did a check with Checkflash and read speeds are 17-20mb and write speeds are 6-7mb.

    I can't guarantee it, but why class 10? I can't think of anything you would need to read/write that fast.

    Megabytes.

    I'm finding it's transfering mp3's at around 3MB/s, though. Is that normal?
