Question Best 16gb or 32gb microSD?

Going to start using the Inspire as my main music player (thanks to Ubermusic, which is simply too good to resist).. looking for recommendations on a 16/32gb microSD.

Also, question: how come Sandisk only has class 4 microSD's? I'm all for getting myself one of these as the reviews are great.. but there might be something faster out there that's close in terms of reliability?

I have encountered zero issues with my PNY 32 gb class 10 card. New Egg has them pretty cheap when they are in stock.

I've always bought sandisk over the past couple years for my cameras and they been great, very reliable an fast. Right now I have a 32gb class 6 in my Inspire for the past couple months and it's been great for music and movies

Where did you find a 32gb class 6 Sandisk microSD? I think you meant class 2..

I ordered a 16gb Sandisk Class 4 MicroSD from Newegg. It's only $20 after promo code EMCKBJJ33, free shipping.

That's a great price I paid 25 off ebay for a 16gb....

yeah thats my mistake it's actually a sandisk 32gb micro sdhc flash memory card writing at 6 mbs and reading at 12.5 mbs around what the min of a class 6 would be doing


SD Tools app(no speed boost)

I gave the SD Tools app a shot after seeing your post and it's a cool app! Here's what I got with my aforementioned PNY class 10 32GB card. $60 from newegg.

I've been using a Class 10 32GB Lexar in my HTC Inspire 4G for a few months now, and it works great.

I paid 20 for a Patriot Class 4 16GB. Worked great. Was pretty fast and large enough for me. But I like to be the guy with all the overkill stuff. So I'm getting a 32GB next.
