    Picked up the Kingston class 4 32gb microSD card from Newegg and tried it in the EVO, initially it would not recognize the card until I formatted it. It was already FAT32 but I formatted FAT32, 32k, and it then recognized the card.

    I then copied everything over from my Sandisk 16gb card and did some speed tests with Crystaldiskmark, here are the results:

    So you can see the speed difference between a Sandisk Class 2 and a Kingston class 4, the Sandisk did much better than the Kingston, but since I got the Kingston for $86, I don't really care, it is working fine, and the USB adapter is pretty nice too.

    Thanks for posting.

    I wish Sandisk would come out with a class 4 32gb card.

    Well it sounds like you'd be better off with a SanDisk 32GB class 2, then a Kingston 32GB class 4.
