    Never hear much about adata. However that doesnt mean they are not good. if it is truly class 6 then i assume it would be good. I decided on Sandisk for the 5 year "limited" warranty

    Wondering if there is a link to the product listing? Maybe we can check it out and see!

    I know the 4GB Sandisk is Class 2....and the 8GB Sandisk is Class 4...

    The A-Data 4GB Class 6 SDHC sucks.

    Get Transcend or Kingston.

    Check out this page, it is for cameras... but for our purposes, look at the read speeds: SDHC Benchmarks

    Some I found interesting were: Read Speed (Kb/s) (64k data)

    Transcend MicroSD Class6, 2GB (FAT16) 6045
    Transcend MicroSDHC Class6, 4GB (FAT32) 7764
    Toshiba MicroSD SD-C02G MIJ (fat16), 2GB 6062
    SanDisk MicroSD, 1GB (FAT16) 7621
    Kingston microSD, 512Mb 5093

    Edit: ROFL.. i almost wanna try one of these cards for my EDGE... just for the brand name

    I'm considering A-Data's 8GB Micro SDHC card because it's supposed to be Class 6. But I am still unsure. I may settle for a Trancend 4GB which is also supposed to be Class 6. So I'm a n00b when it comes to Micro SDHC cards.

    Too many issues on A-DATAs

    I heard that it slowed down the enhanced menu, and that there were a lot of faulty units.

    I decided on the Transcend. No problems as of yet.

    I've had the card for half a year.

    My AData 4GB Class6 froze a lot more in POR than my Sandisk 4GB Class4
    Notice I said froze, that's because my A-Data DIED few days ago.

    I have a Sandisk 8gb class 4 and an A-Data 8gb class 6....

    I think the Sandisk is actually the better chip.

    I'm using an AData 4GB SDHC Class6 right now and it's great...though the first one I got had to be RMA'd due to it being DOA. Great price, great speed.

    I'll tell ya. I have a Transcend Class4 8gig in my Cyclo. My bro has a A-Data Class6 8gig in his cell phone. My Transcend seemed to transfer files MUCH faster to the card than his A-Data did when hooked up via the Cyclo's little USB microSD reader. Read speed seemed comparable, but write speed was drastically different and MUCH better on the Transcend.

    Castlevania PoR still tends to lock up on my Transcend though. I tried his A-Data in my Cyclo with PoR and it didn't appear to lock, but I only spammed the transport thingy's for a couple minutes as a test, so I can't say it was actually any better. I can sometimes do that on my Transcend too.....

    I CAN say that the A-Data card seemed to take slightly longer to load up the menus in the Cyclo though.

    I don't really have any data on transfer speeds for the 2 cards. I did do some tests on the Transcend when I first got it, but I don't really remember the results anymore. But by direct comparison in usage tests, the Transcend Class4 seemed actually faster than the A-Data Class6.

    same place [​IMG] was said sandisk 8gb class4/6 and adata 8gb class 4 were almost identical. Still waiting for numbers on the class 6 adata 8gb to see if also the same.

    Who cares about write times? Like PharaohsVizier said it's all about the Random Access Times lol
    I use the A-Data 4GB class 6 and have had no problems in my cyclo ever.
