    Like...Japanese in they are sold in Japan with Japanese on the box? Or manufactured in Japan? Both should work either way.

    2GB Class 4?

    You might as well go for a Class 6 4GB; class six being the fastest out there so far.

    Yah if you saw it at walmart and it said Japan on it, it just means it was manufactured in Japan.

    But don't get the ones from China because those are most likely the fakes/clones.

    It's not too slow, but loading times, copy/pasting times etc, and some games might slow down. But very few of them, if any do.

    From my experience, you can't judge a card just by it's class. I've seen Class 2 cards from one brand outperform Class 6 cards from another. It's mostly trial and error but stick with the better brands and you'll have no problems. I have a Sandisk Class 2 and it's faster than any of my other Class 4 or 6 cards from other brands in both reading and writing.

    Forgot to mention that there are speed differences between the same classes of the same brand.

    eg. Class 2 for a 4GB will be different than a Class 2 for 8GB (I think the 4GB has faster access times but I forget) Also, there are different versions of Class 2 (at least for Sandisk). The older ones are slower while the newer ones are faster. It can get a bit confusing and this is why you can't say for certain that a particular class will be a certain speed.

    besides that each brand itself also has different performance (write/read speed) on a particular class itself
    that is why i would always suggest get well known brand [​IMG]

    Class counts, not region.

    Not necessarily the case, especially with popular brands like Sandisk and Kingston. Know why? Because they are all manufactured in either Taiwan, Japan, and a few other place...but no China. So if you get a Kingston/Sandisk from China then it's a fake and will probably run alot slower than a one from Japan with the same class.
