Shouldn't this be a MSDHCC not a MSDHC?

If you are going to make up acronyms, take some pride in your work.

Class 4! Save your money and get a class 10.

I wouldn't recommend buying a Class 4 card. It's a waste of money. Class 10 isn't that much more expensive, and it's way faster.

You class ten guys were probably bitching about class 2 and telling people to spend the extra on a class 4 not too long ago.

This is a decent deal. You don't need to stare at it while it dumps your pictures etc... onto your hard drive. Set it and forget it.

Unless you're a serious photographer or you're using this to shoot HD video, any gains from Class 10 is not that big of a deal. The vast majority of the micro sds go into phones and tablets now a days. So you are rarely writing 30 gigs of data at any given time. For the most part you're adding less than gig of music or video over wifi and unless you have a very high end fiber optic Internet connection with some wireless access point running under ideal conditions your class 4 sd card isn't going to be slowing you down.

Seems like an arms race has started on selling 32GB micro SDs and I'm the casualty that bought too early in it. I will give memman credit for having very polite customer service checking up on my order because it was flagged as dangerous (I was buying for a friend a thousand miles away.). Good on them for checking with the bill to contact.

there are huge gains to class 10 and I am constantly transfering 30gb of data back and forth. I have yet to take a picture of anything professionally. Also Best buy has a sale on a great 32GB class 10 card right now. I'm not smelling my own farts. Just because you don't do something does not mean no one else does. I won't be buying this card and regret buying the other class 2 and class 4 32 GB micro sd cards I currently have. I also won't buy another if it does not come with the extra adater making it an SD card as well. I also want a plastic case. All that should be standard at this point.

I think the Class 10 crowd is also missing other uses of a card like this. For example, an Android Boot Card for a Nook Color or Tablet runs SO MUCH better on a Class 2 or 4 than on a Class 10. I am sure there is a technical reason of some sort. That being said, I would only use a name brand (preferably SanDisk) for the endeavor.

Dead? Can't add to cart-even after logging in.

Class 4 and Class 10 internally are only slightly different. Class 10 is optimized more for writing large chunks of data, at the cost of lower performance on random access. Class 4 is actually better for things like boost/swap. It's simply a matter of what you're using it for.

Class 4 = 4 megabytes per second write speed, which translates to 8x4=32 megaBITS per second. Most HD camcorders are well below 20 megabits per second, and even in HQ mode I don't know if there are any that go above 20 to 25, unless it's a very high end or pro-sumer model.

According to that site, this is a Toshiba with 5 MB/s write. If it's capable of that, you're talking 40 megabits/second, a rate that no HD camcorder will come even close to.

In other words, class 10 is nice, but only when it comes to transferring large files, but bear in mind that a class 4 will READ (transfer to your computer) at speeds much higher than 4MB/sec (in this case, it claims 20 MB/s)

In terms of functionality, a class 4 is sufficient for HD camcorders, phones, tablets, etc. For high end digital cameras, speed can be nice (less waiting time between photos, for example), but other than that, class 4 should be plenty fast enough to handle any task, even if it will be slower in transferring large files.
