    All 4GB eh?

    Transcend Class 6 is the best
    Kingston Class 4 is second
    A-Data Class 6 is crap and shouldn't be considered

    Transcend Class 6 is my favorite - I have several.
    I tried a Kingston Class 4, it is OK, but not as fast.
    I would not buy an A-Data.

    It has horrible quality control. If you search through this forum, you'll see that many people have had problems with this card. Its rating on newegg.com isn't all that great either.

    Really? I'm seeing 4 out of 5 eggs on newegg, not sure what you are looking at. I've never heard or seen anything bad about the Adata card (other than a 4-5 second loading of the in game menu) most anything that I've seen was a problem with the person using it not the card itself.

    This. It's one of the main gripes people have with it. If you use Enhanced menu features a lot (and you should be, otherwise why would you be using a CycloDS? Other than the support and GUI and blah) it's utterly frustrating having to wait up to that long until it loads up. Take RTS for example, you RTS, go back into the game and die, then want to RTL. This can take up to 10 seconds (if not more) and depending on the game you might be doing this quite often.

    IMO the only reason people went with the Adata was because it was one of the first 4GB microSDHC Class 6 out, and relatively cheap too. People jumped on the bandwagon and are still doing it, even though there are comparable/better cards out there. [​IMG]

    Anyway, i've heard good things about the transcend. I'm using a 4GB kingston JPN, though no idea if the one you'll get will be made in Japan or Taiwan, don't think it matters however, haven't seen many problem reported.

    Really it's a matter of are you patient or are you not patient. Though if there is a card for the same price, yeah go with the other brand.
