    Has anyone found one for a good price? I normally only trust Sandisk but I cant locate a Class 6 from them. Also has anyone tried the Class 10 cards?

    how is data mine? got a great review on that page, but I'm hesitant to order from a brand I don't know.

    that being said, I'm tempted to cancel my initial order cause that's a great price!!

    no that isnt.



    just note that class only effects write speed. the read speed is dependent on the device itself and is usually higher (i beleive) then the class certifiaction anyways.

    Class 2 will work fine enough on any phone.

    You might want to pony up the extra bucks for a class 6/10 for a very nice camera, but probably not a phone since much of the use is reading, not writing.

    While speed of card will not affect the phone it is nice having the higher speed to transfer files to and from memory card (via USB 2.0 card reader). I'm moving around files often and that is the main reason I went with a class 6 card.

    Stam2000, inexpensive 16gb class 6 cards (made by reputable companies) are hard to come by. When ever I see one under $60 it is back-ordered. Avoid e-bay and sellers selling card with brand you have never heard of. Here is one for $60:

    Buying name brand memory cards like Sandisk is just wasting your money.

    It's all made in the same factory in Taiwan then just packaged. 95% of manufacturers have lifetime warranties anyways.

    People like Patriot, AData, Trancend, Centon, and PNY are putting out just as good if not better quality than Sandisk for less than half the price. Save your money.

    I've had a 16gb micro SD card that is a class 2, I used it on a BB Tour 9630, an HTC Droid Eris and now the HTC Droid Incredible. I can't imagine spending more for a class 6, cause the class 2 has been fantastic on all three devices.

    Class 6 is just for transferring speeds I don't think it affects how it performs in your phone.

    FWIW, it takes longer for my Pioneer headunit (AVIC 700) to update the catalogue on my Class 2 cards than my class 4/6. This is on initial loading of the card however.

    I'd be curious to know what "longer" means. When you're talking about spending another 25% of the cost, you mean it takes another 1/2 second? or a full minute?

    About 60-90 seconds for the same 7-8GB of mp3 files, for initial loading (card insertion). Accessing the same song from same folder structure takes 1-2 seconds longer before playback starts.

    While I can't confirm they all come from the same factory, I've actually had more sandisk cards crap out on me than any other brand. In fact I still have some viking or something like that 1 and 2 gig cards that i've had forever and they are still kicking in my kids mp 3 players, multiple sandisks are in the trash.
