    Get a Japanese Kingston microSD card. If you need a larger card, get a class 6 microSDHC card.

    In general, a microSD card (formatted in FAT16) will be faster than a class 6 microSDHC card (formatted in FAT32), but obviously won't be as large.

    "TF" stands for "TransFlash" and is the same as microSD but lacks SDIO mode according to Wikipedia:

    I just ordered two of those last week, the adapter was made in China, but the MicroSD card was made in Japan.

    Good to know. The other one is cheaper and is also made in Japan (you can even see "Japan" written on the microSD card in the picture) but doesn't come with an adapter.

    Yesterday Newegg had a $7.99 (free shipping) 4GB Class 4 microSDHC with microSDHC reader, but unfortunately they're up to $11.99 today.
