@pz@woot: For an Android phone, the small block transfer rate is THE MOST IMPORTANT rating for the memory card. Sandisk Class 2 and Class 4 are supposed to be the fastest for that.

As an example: I recently pulled out the Transcend Class 6 from my phone and replaced it with a Sandisk Class 2 I had around. MASSIVE speed increase. Counter-intuitive, but most brands optimize for large file transfers. In your phone, it's more important that small file transactions happen quickly.

I've never heard of this site. Does anyone have experience with them? I'm looking for a 16GB card, Class4 or greater, and this is the best deal I've seen.

Anyone know if the different classes (4, 10, whatever) make much difference in a phone as opposed to camera, or what type camera you need for them to matter?

This same one is $15 on Amazon with free shipping. No adapter though.

If someone needs better than Class 4, another deal is for Lexar Class 10 16 GB at Target. $19.99 with free shipping so basically $6 more. no adapter on that either I think:

This is my third order from this site and I have not had any problems. N41

@pz@woot: For phones, any class would work. Phones do not use the speed as much unless you're running applications or recording HD movies with your phone. If that is true, then you can settle for a class 6 or higher, but a class 4 can do well also.

For cameras, it depends on what camera you have. A class 2 or 4 would be absolutely fine for a point and shoot. A class 6 or higher would be ideal for anything better, and a class 10 or higher is a must for high-end DSLRs to keep up with the camera's high speed of taking shots or movies.

Hope this helps.

@compassstl: If you're storing Android apps on an SD, class 4 Sandisk is the way to go, for the reasons stated in my previous post. If you've got a camera or something, you're much better off with some random class 10 card, since those devices do large-block sequential reads+writes. Right tool for the right job.

@ringo4422: Do you mean aside from the fact that this 30% less than the Newegg price you just quoted?

I would think this would be perfect for my Sansa Clip+

The picture makes it look huge! I bet an 'actual size' micro SD like that could hold at least a TB.

vote-for6vote-against

@mikeymet: They're already making them in 2TB. MicroSDXC. I don't know if you can buy one yet, but I remember reading that someone made one in 2TB.

@pz@woot: I have a class 2 in my phone and it's fine.

vote-for6vote-against

Class 4 isn't worth the savings. Get a class 10, only $8-10 more most everywhere, especially Amazon, MicroCenter and TigerDirect. Or splurge and get a 32gb card. Then laugh at all the iPhone users who have to buy a new phone at an inflated prices to get more storage

vote-for6vote-against

@rprebel: So I have never heard of any device supporting more than 32gb/64gb first of all. Second of all, imagine solid state drive prices.

vote-for6vote-against

After charges for sales taxes (which I doubt they pay to the state and city I live in) and shipping, these came to $15.35 each. Good price but pass.

vote-for5vote-against

Class refers to read and write speed - Unless you're recording HD video, class 4 is adequate for write speed. Read speed however, is universally useful when dumping the card to the computer, unless you don't usually have much on the card. (but then why are you looking at a 16gb?) I have a number of SD cards here that I use with my cameras and video recorders, and it takes a good 15minutes (at class 4) to dump 16gb of video off the outdoor camera, which I do frequently. But for that I really don't care, I stick in the card and start the copy and go back to something else. So if you're always in a hurry, get the 10. Otherwise the 4 makes more sense.

@thegogmagog: It's $10+shipping. It's not directly from Amazon.

What this card be fast enough to store a movie on for playback on a Xoom?

vote-for4vote-against

Never know what one of my cards is going to go in so i wouldn't by anything other than a class 10 now. Besides my phone does record in 1080p

vote-for3vote-against

I have this card in my Mytouch 4G. It can record video in 720P without any problem. My phone doesn't record in 1080P, so I don't know if that would work with this card. Everything else (music, apps, etc) have been fine with this card.

This is a good price, but I have not heard of this site.

vote-for3vote-against

I'm in for one. This by far the best price I've seen, coupled with no tax since I'm in a different state. I haven't used this vendor before either, but the low price makes this purchase a good one to try. I'll post back if anything goes wrong.

I'm in for one. My Xperia Play needs some more space... too many games!

@khellendros1984: Thanks for the technical info. I was wondering about that and your comments/links help!

@firebirdude: My Mistake sorry, looked at another that was free super saver (I can always add K Cups or something to get to $25).

I'm ordering one, but don't like this in the terms and conditions, "Please note that all sales purchase on Overhalfsale.com are final. There will be no credit or refunds issued." Hopefully whoever said above they'd used this site is right.

In for 2, for extra memory in the kids' Nook Color. Yay!

@khellendros1984: Awesome link on performance. I'm not booting OS from it though and I do take pictures on the phone, so hopefully the Class 4 still works fine. I have no idea what heavy graphic games require, like some FPS or racing.

vote-for1vote-against

One thing a few of you are missing, The class 4 Sandisk is almost as fast as
some of the class 10 cards you buy. there is a free program called h2testw
that will measure read and write speeds.

vote-for1vote-against

received the card but the GENERIC adapter was DEAD
anyone else have that problem????

vote-for1vote-against

@bethfitz: What did you base this conclusion on? Is it labeled SanDisk so you think its a counterfeit or is it showing something else? I'm still waiting on mine, a bit concerned over recent posts

vote-for1vote-against

Received it today. Adapter works, PC can read card, sees 14.8 GB free (I'm sure that works out to 16 somehow, not quite at 1024x). Hopefully my phone will also have no problems.

Currently $9.99 At Amazon.

They also have comparison of SanDisk actual class 4 and other brands "Class 10". For reading speed class 2 is fast enough for Movie/Music playback so no wories. The critical issue would be write speed for Video. Class 2 will probably result in choppy audio/video.

/Adding ?Tag=Dealswoot-20 does NOT lower prices of other items...

I received this card two days ago and after some testing i can confirm that it is a fake. Not a real sandisk card. Company has yet to get back to me.

Same class 4 card on Newegg for everyday price of $19.99 shipped. No real big deal here.
