    Well, I'm not that familiar with MicroSDHC cards due to using nothing but MicroSD cards so I wanted some advice from my fellow tempers. I know class 6 cards are the best right now, but what about the brand? What do you guys suggest getting for a flashcard? I'm looking for a card that can handle Homebrew and Backups without any slow downs and freezing if possible. While I will accept suggestions for 4 Gigabyte cards, 8 Gigabyte is preferred. Also I'm looking for a card thats in the ~20$ dollar range.


    So out of these cards, what are the best:
    4 Gigabytes

    8 Gigabytes
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....34&name=8GB

    Thanks again Tempers!

    I'd trust SanDisk for class 6 8GB MicroSDHC.

    Kingston does not seem to make Class 6 cards but if you're fine with Class 4 (shouldn't really make a difference anyways), then go for it. They are a lot cheaper.

    I've used the 4 gig A-data class 6 for a year without a single real corruption issue (formatted once every two months) I've only experienced a slowdown on one game. (Zombie BBQ)
    A-data gets my praise.

    I would get a Kingston or Sandisk, 8 GB SDHC Class 6.

    Very expensive... not to mention in most cases class 4 is suitable. Besides there are other brands besides kingston and sandisk which work just as well.

    i'm also trying to decide on a class 4 kingston or class 6 a-data. does anyone have experience with a class 4 kingston? are they fast enough to run problem games such as POR or TWEWY?

    Class 4 kingston definitely in my opinion. A data has had a few problems with their micro Sd cards... Also class 4 will be more than sufficient in most cases =]
