My PNY 32GB class 10 speed.

Sequential

21.59MB/s read - 11.55MB/s write
This is using a 50MB file.

I would like to test the 4k transfers, but in order to test with a file size less than 50MB I would have to wipe the card. I'll do it just not any time real soon.

It really depends on how exactly you are using your sd card. I know in the OP you said you have a lot of music. Do you typically clear all of your music and transfer all new stuff to the phone?

I have been using a sandisk class 6 for quite some time now and I absolutely love it. It is perfect for my needs. But I do not do a lot of heavy music on my sd card. I have read that even the class 10 Lexar sd cards have terrible random speeds, so I would definitely avoid them at all costs.

Reading that post jig posted I would say a class 4 or 6 would be best.

I would definitely agree with that.

This site has a really good deal on a class 4 32gb for today only. I order from them quite a bit. The only issue I ever have is sometimes it takes a while to be delivered.

avoid amazon? or..
if I order from amazon, should I be wary of the brand name? like, have some of you bought via amazon what appeared to be a kingston or whatever known brand, only to find it probably is not?
I read the advice about watching the source carefully....

I have not ever had that issue with amazon before. I guess that it is possible but very unlikely in my opinion.

Its not like ebay where i would never trust that it is legitimate. I have ordered quite a bit from amazon without a single hitch or mistake.

Always be wary of ordering online though... because it can happen.

As long as it is from amazon and not a store. But again amazon is better about policing its stores than ebay is. I have bought from amazon many times and not once had a problem with getting a different product then what I ordered.
