Default Sandisk 32GB micro at Amazon...

This is a pretty darn good price for a 32GB micro sdhc! Also being Sandisk brand, they usually go for more. It doesn't specify what class it is, but its probably class 4? Anyways, its only $56 and eligible for Prime shipping! The msrp is $138 on the official website. Sweet!

Here's the official link on Sandisk's page...http://www.sandisk.com/products/mobi...disk-microsdhc

EDIT: I guess this card is a Class 2, according to one of the reviewers at Amazon. They also said it performed very well though.

I use one of those for my evo, it works fine. Then again the evo came with a class 2 card so theres no reason why it wouldn't, its just initially putting stuff on there takes more time, read speeds are totally adequate for a phone.

I think the quality of the sandisk cards are great, I have a three year old 8gb in my tablet right now and it works flawlessly. That is a great price,but it seems kind of slow given current options out there. I'm probably going to buy a 16gb class 10. This patriot one seems like a good deal.

That patriot card is great. I actually have it in my tf right now. I've done speed tests on it that came out pretty high. There is an app you can use called 'sd tools' in the market. Good card for the price!

I bought the Sandisk 32GB Class 4 version from Amazon for the price. It works great and when I watch 1080p movies there is no stuttering

Transcend make good cards too, for cheaper. I've been using a 16GB Class 10 SD with my camera for 5 months and haven't had a problem.

Although I haven't put it in a Transformer yet, I have the SanDisk 32GB microSD and through my SD card reader on a mac it tests at 5.1mb/s write, 13.9mb/s read.

Default Sandisk speeds

If the card is really slow, and it was cheap, it could be a fake, but don't jump to conclusions quite yet. I once bought a 16gb Class 10 SDHC card, and when I couldn't achieve the 30mb/s read (or anywhere near it) I contacted Sandisk.

I then spent the next week or so sending them pictures, serial numbers and other details such as where I bought it from and it took them a surprising amount of time to confirm whether it was genuine.

Once confirmed it was genuine, although I had a new sandisk multi-card reader, I had to get a specific sandisk sdhc only reader to achieve the fabled 30mb/s. Sandisk allowed me to send my current one to them and they sent me out one that would work to it's maximum capacity.

All this, just to say you can't trust the speed tests you get from windows or osx, as even when you have genuine cards and genuine readers, sometimes there's more to it than that. When I contacted Sandisk I mentioned that they should make it more clear, as nowhere do they say that you need specialist readers to get the best speeds!
