    Hi, I've been to the stores in my local area looking for micro SDHC cards, higher than class 4 and these are my options:

    ScanDisk ultra card, 4gb, class 6, $10
    ScanDisk ultra card, 16gb, class 10, $40

    Fuli, 4gb, class 10, $30
    Fuji, 8gb, class 10, $50
    Fuji, 16gb, class 10, $80

    Lexar, 8gb, class 10, $40
    Lexar, 16gb, class 10, $60

    Do you recommend one brand more than another?

    Is class 6 all that's needed or is class 10 better for this kind of stuff?

    Oh and I've decided to get a Supercard DSTWO.

    Thanks :)

    Class-10 is usually considered overkill, with class-4 and class-6 being the ones to aim for. If that's all that's available Sandisk and Lexar are reputable brands (as they actually produce), but going for a class-6 can save you some cash.

    class 10 overkill for all device except for DSLR/HD Camera or any device required LARGE data write at burst speed.
    I got mine for $16 for 32GB, with lifetime warranty, yeah it's localstore area, with localbrand.
    Go with the cheapest class 4/6 with longest warranty

    You will find Class 6 to be trouble free, as for the brand, i would not recommend any of those that you have listed.

    Don't buy them at that store! those are terrible prices, even for those cheap brands.
    Look online for better deals. I recommend amazon. (just steer away from sandisk microSD from ebay. too many fakes...)

    Stay away from Kingston because the quality varies. Kinkgston doesn't produce cards, they re-sell cards produced by other companies.

    As for brands known to produce quality consistently, Transcend and A-Data are recommended by many people here (Transcend being my personal suggestion).

    I generally recommend Sandisk Class 2 (this one has higher reading speed than some of the Class 4 microSD) or Samsung microSD lineup.

    I do NOT recommend Kingston and Lexar microSD.
