hi!

I want to buy a new microSDHC card.

There is the A-DATA Turbo microSDHC 8GB, Class 6 (AUSDH8GCL6)
the Transcend microSDHC 8GB, Class 6 (TS8GUSDHC6).
the SanDisk Mobile Ultra microSDHC 8GB, Class 4 (SDSDQY-8192-E11M) --> is now Class 4 only? wasn't it class 6? -- http://geizhals.at/a330503.html)

I searched the forums, some say the A-DATA is better and the Transcend is quite slow / buggy - but some also say the A-DATA card is slower and buggy...

Some benchmarks / tests on the Hero would be cool

All I can say is I have a Sandisk 8gb Class 6 MicroSDHC card and it does its job really well.

I'm using a Transcend 16GB Class 6 MicroSDHC and is performing quite well.

Does the SD class impact much on the speed of the phone?
Thanks

I've managed to convince myself it does, I've noticed my phone has been more responsive since upping to a Class 6 card.

I've seen people say that the swapfile is on SD, hence why it seems more responsive. However, knowledgable people have replied that the swapfile is not on the SD, and it can't.

It will obviously speed up anything that accesses the card, though

It was when I got mine. Looking at the (stock) pic, it still looks like a 6 in the top-right, no? I think the site has it wrongly labelled.

shame on sandisk for not giving perf figures on their website though.

there's a good site for SD (not microSD) & CF benchmarks here:

http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/rea...?cid=6007-9438

it's mostly for camera-types, but there is a USB reader section that should test the raw card. again, not for microSD, but gives an idea, perhaps.

I don't think using a class 6 card is that much faster (or even at all) than using a class 4 card. I can't see any difference in speed in the UI - only in load times.

No, this is a site for price comparison - I've been at 2 shops and they both had the ultra card and it was class 4...

one shop had a class6, but on the package it said class 4. (and it was very expensive)

I think I'll go with the transcend
