    Buy a known brand (Kingston, SanDisk...), from a known store (Not from eBay, most are cheap fakes) and if you want good transfer speeds get at least a class 4Micro SD

    That card supports up to 32gb. I recommend Sandisk and any class speed is fine cause in my experience most of the blank class and class 2 card write at class 4 speeds anyways which really only saves you some time transferring files not a biggie.

    Woah. Read speed is important.

    It is very important. The SD class is like the DVD read/write speed.
    Saving and loading time increases when you play a game directly from a DVD, and the same is for SD cards.

    The class is not the same as the size. You can have a class-2 8GB, but also a class-4, class-6, and even class-10. Generally you'll want 4, 6 at the most.

    We don't know. As said, class is just the write speed (not read speed), but can be a general indicator of performance. Class-4 is middle of the range basically, it could be fine or you could be unlucky and get a crappy one (though it's usually the class-2 ones that are crappy consistently).
