I know I am digging up a "dead" thread , but does anyone today have any idea on where to find a 16 gb class 4 micro sd card

Is it really THAT better than class 2?

I ended up replacing my 8 gb class 2 with an 8 gb class 6
Yes faster, depending on what you use it for.
the phone cares a little, my music is the biggest use for the card, swapping out music and books makes it ok, just waiting to get a new phone, I would say no biggie on the 16 gb class 2 just for the size.
I wouldn't swap so much if I went bigger, but sometime I want to copy stuff on and off, it helps for that.
Amazon.com was ok on price and ebay if check the seller feedback.

I did not see a class 4 anywhere, for 16 gb, good luck, picture may show it but the print does not. read the fine print.

Sandisk 16GB MicroSD class 4 is their ultra series. It is supposed be released by now. According to Sandick reps at CES They have a tradition of releasing the regular line in 3rd quarter of each year and the ultra version after CES. 8GB came out in 3rd Q 07, 8GB class 6 came out 1st Q 08, 16GB class 2 came out 3rd Q 08. When I asked about the 32GB MicroSD he didnt gave me date just repeated the above statement. I'm expecting a 32GB MicroSD sometime in September or October of 09 and a class 4 or 6 sometime early 2010.

As for speed, the Sandisk class 2 16GB microsd goes, read is about the same as class 4 8GB microsd maybe faster. Write speed is about 10% slower than then the class 4 8GB microsd. I transfered 7.5GB to 8GB class 4 Sandisk microsd and it took 23 minutes. Same data transferred to the 16GB class 2 microsd took 25 minutes 30 sec. Read speed - transfering 7.5GB from the 8GB class 4 took 13 minutes while the 16GB class 2 took 12 minutes 31 sec.

I think I'll wait for the smoke to clear and the prices to drop before I get one. My 8G is not even half full but with all the cool stuff on this site I have a feeling it'll be full soon enough.

Well, I went ahead and bought and received it today. I've only been using it for an hour or so but it seems be behaving normally. Doesn't seem any faster or slower than my 8GB card (which died on me which forced my hand). I'll let you know if I have any problems.

NVM... when you hit buy it says this:

"Sorry, SanDisk 16GB Micro SD (SDHC) Card - Class 4 is out of stock.

If you would like to be informed when new stock arrives, please enter your details below."

I've entered my data and I'm awaiting arrival... will post. Good to see a price though...

59.99 pounds or 117.17 USD

It's a lie - again. I have now bought 2 16Gb micro-SD cards from My Memory, both claiming to be class 4 - even in the description in one case, and after me emailing and specifically asking.
I don't understand why they do this - it will only cost them in postage and charges associated with refunding my money.

I've been using my 16GB Class2 for four months from a 6GB class 4. No difference in daily usage at all. May make difference with copying files from PC to the card, but with that more space you don't do that as much. From my experience today I would not buy for two times the price a Class 4 over a Class 2.
