    Hi,

    I'm looking to get a 4gb SDHC card for my Acekard 2. I'm wondering if you guys have recommendations for a reliable but not too expensive one. Does it need to be class 6 for all the games to run without slowdowns?

    Thanks!

    a-data cards seem to get the best results, but make sure its a class6 (which are the fastest).

    I've heard of pretty good things for A-Data. However, I've never used them myself though since I currently have a 8GB Sandisk.

    Sorry for threadjack, however it is kinda relevant to the topic of this thread. Is the A-Data 8GB Class 6 good?

    I have an AK2 with a sd 8gb class 2. it takes a while to load games, is it worth it to upgrade to the Kingston Class 4 from DX?

    Just out of curiosity why did you guys buy a class 2 8gb for nearly $30 when you can get a class 6 8gb for $20.55?

    (Not trying to sound like a dick or anything, I'm just curious if there are any differences)

    My adata class6 freezes more often on POR than my sandisk class 4 does.

    California.
    The $30 one is a MicroSD and the one you linked is a regular SD.

    Right behind you
    A-data class 6 all the way. I've had both the 4 gig (gave to my brother) and currently the 8 gig versions. They're great:)

    I will echo the question of why you buy a class 2 for 30$. My class 6 8 gig was only 30$ at newegg (it seems to vary between 30 and 35)

    edit: link removed, it seems newegg is only selling the class 4 8 gig right now. But I did indeed order the class 6 8 gig from them. Weird.

    do you have any cf_bench results for the 2 adatas?
    The class 4 8gb sandisk and classs 4 8gb adata are said to be almost identical performancewise and the class 6 sandisk virtually the same as the class 4 - was wondering if that meant that the adata 8gb class 6 was also the same or whether it manages to be fast like the 4gb.

    What is the difference between a class 2 and 6 is it when I start a game or what? Or is it when I put in a game? And one another question can I buy from Newegg If i Leav in sweden and what is the shipping and bill, and how do I pay? With Paypal?

    The speed determines how fast it can stream data. Videos for instance, tend to slow down a lot on slower cards.

    Don't have a cf bench handy right now... next time I add games I'll do one:)
