    So I have been doing a couple of research, and I heard that certain SDHC Memory cards have been receiving some lags. I don't know if this is true or not. But I am planning to get a 16GB Micro SDHC card, a SANDISK which is class 2 or 4 i think? Any reccomendations, will I get any lag?

    Quite a few people recommended you avoid the SanDisk class 2 cards made in China, they are as slow as anything. There are simply better cards out there.

    This. Other µSD cards shouldn't be any problem though.

    I have an 8GB SanDisk C2 microSD, no problems here. I get the occasional slight slowdown during some high intensity police chases in Chinatown Wars, but this even occurs with my 2GB Kingston.
    People have reported tons of problems with the 4GB SanDisk C2's but nobody has yet to have a problem with a 16GB one. Personally, I don't think Class really matters when playing games. The only thing it seems to affect is the speed at which you copy games to your SD.

    I think I saw a 16GB go for $36 w/ free shipping at PriceAngels if you're still interested.
