    I stick with Sandisk and would recommend as high of a class as you can afford...

    SD Speed Class - SD Association

    Speed Class, designated as Class 2, 4, 6 and 10, is designed for normal and high speed bus interface (mode) and UHS Speed Class 1 is designed for UHS bus interface*. (Speed Class and the UHS Speed Class are not compatible.)

    There's a chart in the link showing what uses the classes are good for.

    People are saying class 4 is fine for the Atrix.

    I personally bought a Class 10 32GB Wintec off Newegg, but I haven't gotten the chance to test it out yet. They got some really bad reviews but have a lifetime warranty. I should have went with Lexar or Sandisk though I just couldn't find them at the time.

    You should also know SanDisk rates their microSD cards lower than the standard from what I understand. So a class 6 card is capable of class 10 speeds. Class 6 or 10 might be great for high-end DSLR cameras but I agree that a class 4 card is fine for the Atrix.

    I have a really old Class 2 card. What does this mean in terms of the files in it? Will they load/read slower? Will it be slower to copy/paste or move files to the card?
