    To be honest, 64kb offers absolutely no speed difference and apparently neither does SD card class.

    Yeah, technically SD card class only is a reference to the card's minimum write speed, with adequate hardware. Although, I'm personally fond of having a rather large SD card for apps and emulators, and a hard drive for backups. I'm not sure why, it's just what I've always done.
