    Anyone know where you can find a good priced 32gb or 16gb SD card for the Inspire? I'd love to get a 32gb, but I would hope I can get one cheaper than 80-90 bucks online or something...and what type should I get? Which type is best? Thanks!!

    What type is the SD card you gave me a link to...either I'm blind and haven't seen a type listed on there...or it's just not on there. Lol

    32 gig Class 2. There are class 4's, but they're around 100 and from my experience, it doesn't make a difference. Maybe on digital cameras, but not mobile phone SD cards

    edit: the class is in the upper right, the circled 2. Thats how they do it now, very inconspicuous

    I bought the Transcend 32GB MicroSD with adapter from Amazon. It's more expensive than either of those but its sold by Amazon and has decent reviews. BlueProton and the other marketplace seller sell bulk cards, I haven't had a lot of luck with those in the past. Don't be fooled Amazon doesn't sell either of those in the links above, they are marketplace sellers that leave inventory with Amazon and Amazon deals with the shipping logistics.

    I much prefer a retail packaged card as you get a full lifetime manufacturer warranty, which you wont get with a bulk card. Plus I've had more issues with bad cards and cards not being the size they say they are when they are sold as bulk, its just easier to stick with retail and be safe. Or as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

    if you dont have to have a 32gb, the 16gb can be had for around $25 shipped.

    If you wait till about summer time, the price may drop on the 32gb

    32gb were really high when they first came out

    Amazon, Newegg, anything like that. Just make sure to stay away from eBay. eBay is chock full of Chinese scammers that sell SD cards that are way smaller than what they say they are.
