    I'll definitely hop on that if you do so. I have the Touch Pro, but we're all apart of the HTC family.

    Once you get the cards can you report back if you have any problems with the card or speed.

    Nice find.

    Realistically, how noticeable is the speed difference? I have an 8gb Class4 right now, and a 16gb Class2 on the way. Realworld performance, is the difference that big?

    200mb per 1 second (class 2)

    400mb per second (class 4)

    1G of a Movie Fomat = [SIZE=-1]1024


    Class Transfer Rate

    1024/200=5.12
    (2) = [/SIZE]
    5:12

    1024/400=2.56
    (4)=2:56


    Class 4 is faster


    right? I could be very wrong

    {also if your sync from computer to G1 via USB, or computer to SD Adaptor...
    that SD Adaptor is relatively faster than using via USB >Possibly?<}

    someone said that the transfer was faster. What does that really mean???

    Are you seeing your phone applications work faster since a larger more efficient hard drive per se???

    Thanks just trying to understand.

    Edit: and I paid $20.07 after tax + shipping, but I like ordering from an established site like newegg :)

    Thanks but does this mean that coping information to the card is faster and or the use of the card like using things written to the card is faster like loading music files. I would assume that 4mb would be faster then 2mb???

    I am just trying to see where the price point/function is since I still need to order some cards and have been holding out for good 8gb card since I know the price is coming down and the 16gb cards for me are just not worth it at this point unless they really come down in price.

    I paid $18/shipped a few weeks back from Meritline. Meritline is pretty established, I've used them before. It did take a few days to ship, but I wasn't in a hurry to get it either.

    NewEgg is great if you want it the next day for no additional charge (at least here in Vegas).

    The speed will only really matter when you load your music files on to the card the first time, after that the phone really won't need to read then fast enough to cause any problems if you get a slower card.

    I tried to order from the first link phantom trace posted a few weeks ago and they were out of stock.

    I reordered the same thing and hopefully I don't find out 5 days later that they are out of stock again. LOL

    $20 and change. I also noticed they are local here in Cali. about 2 hrs away.
