    I've been reading about Micro SDHC cards, and it gets confusing.

    Is there an 8GB Micro SDHC that is considered "the best"? One that will run games like TWEWY and Castlevania well?

    I was thinking of the Transcend 8GB at Newegg, but is there another brand that would be more reliable?

    Thanks!

    From Where???
    both the scandisk and kinston sdhc msd cards have been reported to be a bit slower and problematic with some games. the consensus right now is for the adata or transcend brands. i just picked up the 8gb class6 transcend (which has a lifetime warranty) for $17.99 off newegg w/free shipping.

    cheers,

    i think its all about want class # you buy.
    because with higher class #, comes faster speed for reading

    Me too, just bought one at Newegg for only $15.99 + Free shipping!

    Hope it works well with the AceKard 2 I also ordered (from DX).

    SD Speed Class Ratings
    This number indicate the minimum writing speed.
    In a flashcart it's not really the write speed that we needs but a good reading speed and access time to the datas.
    Kingston mainly sells re-badged Toshiba microSD card made in Japan (Newegg Item#:N82E16820134795
    for example). Those cards has a good access time even on 8GB.
    If it's not the case then it's a fake. DX is the best shop to buy such fake but we all know that. [​IMG]

    well..... I don't know a great deal about how flash memory works, but surely a card with a fast write speed would have fast read speeds?

    i think that Sandisk ultra micro sdhc even though expensive a relible sdhc cart.
    My father uses (is a accountant) them and says they are very reliable. I for one go by 2 rules quality & price. my sdhc is a MicroCenter Brand sdhc. i got it at a store in my state but they can deliver.

    tsk, tsk, tsk.

    It seems incredibly obvious to me that any card with a fast write speed would have to inherently be of higher quality and therefore have fast read speeds. the only part of the flash circuitry that is used for writing and not reading are the HT charge pumps.
