    Topic... I want to get a 16 gig micro SD card for when the Supercardtwo comes out, and was wondering if Sandisk class 2 16gb cards work with current SDHC flash cards. When I say work, I mean can it run games without issues or slowdown. This is the exact card I'm looking at : http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Flash-memory...6499&sr=8-1

    Thanks in advance for the replies!

    Where intellect matters
    It should work. Class 2 cards aren't always the best, but it shouldn't get slowdown for atleast 90-95% of the games out there.

    Plus you shouldn't get a class 2 if you want to get a Supercard. It might be better to get a Class 4 or 6 at least because if you have a Class 2 it might lag in the GBA games and videos you want to watch.

    yes, they work. I use one myself (though its kingston, not sandisk).

    Class 2 is fine IMO. I haven't experienced any lag in gameplay or anything. Then again, I haven't button mashed in Castlevania.

    Class 4 is impossible to find for a 16GB (within a reasonable price), so I'd go with the 16GB Class 2 if you really want 16GB. Otherwise, go with a Class 4 8GB.

    I stand corrected.

    Though, with with 25% reviews saying it died really quick, I would avoid it...

    I always go for sandisk or kingston. And sandisk class 4 16GB is $90.

    I've never had luck with Kingston microSDs... and Sandisk pretty much matters where you get them from, Japan = good and China/Taiwan = bad. But since it seems most of the Sandisks for sale online are from Taiwan now, it's rather unlikely you'll get a good one.

    Thanks for the response guys, I think I'll wait at least until the SupercardDStwo comes out to decide. I'm good with my 4gb and my EZflash at the moment. (I did notice that my current card is a class 2 and that most games work. Sonic's Classic collection and Sonic Racing game seems to have issues though.) Who knows, maybe Amazon will have a deal on them soon. [​IMG]

    also, if you have a frys electronics, they have a 15 dollar rebate on their $39 16GB microsdhc that, after the rebate, makes it $25
