    UPDATE:

    Got the first card: TS64GSDXC10U1

    Formatted with this tool: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/fat32format.htm
    Took only a couple seconds or so.

    Copied my old card to the new one, and everything seems to be functioning fine.

    ---------------------------

    (Wasn't sure if I should post this here or in hardware...)

    Anyone using either of these cards with vWii homebrew?

    SD cards doesn't work in base USB compilant, so USB 2.0 doesn't have any effect, and yes higher class SD cards make the difference, I went from a class 2 to a class 10 SD and it load channels/VC/Wiiware much faster. Not sure why you want so 64GB though, I have a lot of VC/WiiWare, Homebrew stuff on my 16GB and still have like 3GB free, I store bigger files on a HDD though.

    Go with the first one. It's worth the few dollars extra. The read/write speeds are much better than the second one. Both seem to be of quality make.

    As a note, the "up to" means that isn't what you'll normally see in every day use. That's what they were able to get creating an absolute ideal setting, perhaps burst speeds. You'll probably get about 70MB sustained read, maybe half or so write. This will be perfectly fine for homebrew and will be super speedy. it's not like you're recording 4Kvideo or anything. The only card that does >90MB/S read/write sustained is the sandisk extreme pro, but again, you don't need that much power for this.
