    I'm about to grab my SC2 from shoptemp, but I'm wondering if anyone could tell me about the memory card I'm looking at. Looking at a Kingston 8GB microSD Class 4. Any opinions on this card? Thanks in advance!

    that should be enough. I can live with a 2 gig, but it's kinda tight on space right now.

    I've got over 80 games on my 8GB, with room to spare.

    What about the "class 4" thing? I'm not sure what the whole class thing is really, but I vaguely remember reading somewhere it makes a difference.

    It does.

    Class defines it's Write Speed Mainly.

    I have 2 fully working, not fake 8GB Class 4 and Class 6 Cards.

    Class 4 Reads at 11Mb/S and Writes at about 4-5MB/s
    Class 6 Reads at 16MB/s and Writes at about 7-8MB/s
    (Just my Pc Reads on tests and such, is effected by my slow PC... I think :/)

    Class 4 Read Speed is good enough for all game so far, the writing is a bit slow when saving big game like DQ9, HG/SS etc... and I have noticed the Class 6 makes it faster at this.

    So if you've got a few £/$'s extra, grab a Class 6 Card and if not, don't worry, Class 4 works fine.

    I'd definitely recommend Class 6 if you can. IMHO it can help with some homebrew that heavily uses the SD card too, such as Quake 2. Besides, it's awesome that DQ IX saves quicker than the 'saving' music can play. [​IMG]
