    I was thinking Kingstong or Transcend... which one is better? Is there a better one than these 2?

    Is there a 'better' one for using on the Egde?

    Thanks!

    Both are reliable brands, just make sure that the card you get is Class 6.

    The sandisk mobile ultra is a class 6 card. But it high priced at best buy stores. You can buy it on the web for a much lower price.

    One thing nice about the Transcend is that it has ECC (error correction code) whereas the others say nothing about that.

    I have a Transcend 8gig Class 4 myself right now. Other than occasional freezes with Castlevania: PoR (a known problem game) it has served me well. The ECC should mean that it won't corrupt very easily.

    I plan to get a Class 6 Transcend 8gig soon.
