    Could someone tell me if this is a good deal. The price seems to good to be true and I guess I'm right. From what I've googled it seems this Micro SDHC card is a "class 2" card and i have no idea what that means or if my Acekard won't run it or it will, but it will lag. I want to to buy this for my Acekard, 30 bucks is a pretty good deal, but I'm not to certain.

    Could someone please enlighten me.

    Thank you.

    Fry's always sells good deals.

    Class 2 = slow, so if you want storage it's a good deal, but if you want speed, not so great.

    Guess what you can also get 62.5 times more storage than this one for just 70 extra bucks! But it's only for computers.

    Do the math and solve the riddle yourself lol.

    1 TB for $100. [​IMG] Well a class 6 16gb msd would roughly be $50 [​IMG] I'd say its a good deal.

    Get this for a fast (class 6) 16GB Micro SD.

    I'm ordering it soon as my 8GB has filled itself up.

    ...the Class speed rating is the minimum -write- speed. Are you doing enough constant writing to the card via the DS for that to matter? :/

    Amazon (Germany) has really good prices.
    16gb sdhc with class 6 (or more) for already 27€ would be around 20$

    Ehh can you send me the link for a 16 GB Micro SDHC Class 6 for 27€?
    Maybe you mean normal SD Cards. They are often cheaper then the MicroSD's

    EDIT: Ehh 1€ is more than 1 Dollar
    27 Euros = 38.7072 U.S. dollars
    Next time ask Google. Just type in X eur to usd (or gbp (pounds), aud (australian dollar), hrk (croatian kuna)...)

    Ah sorry you're right, was a normal SD and not a micro one. My fault, so amazon is for class 6 around 45€>

    And yeah I thought false about the dollar, since we pay less euro then dollars, mixed up things a bit.

    EDIT: Why do someone even needs a 16gb sdhc? I've my 2gb one and its enough for the good games, but I wouldnt need more than 4gb for even some crappy things [​IMG]

    iceBaer you're absolutely right about anybody needing a 16gb sdhc. I just saw the deal at frys and thought that was a great deal, but was suspicious about the price and my suspicions were right. I, too, have a 2gb for my acekard *got it for 5 bucks at frys :)* and am happy with it. I would just rather get a 16gb sdhc rather than buy a 4gb, then buy an 8gb, etc... and plus its just nice to have all that extra storage.

    Thanks everyone this has been enlightening!
