    Wich microSDHC card should I order with the SuperDSTwo?

    Kingston or SanDisk? Doesn't matter or is there a difference in quality and performance between the two?

    Thanks for your input.

    both are fine


    as far as performance goes you are looking for class speed (2/4/6) higher is better

    i think shoptemp only sells class 4 cards, which are fine

    It shouldn't really matter, just pick whatever you like. Even the Class shouldn't really matter a lot anymore now.

    I bought two Transcend 8 GB class 6 cards off of newegg for 20 bucks each. That's what I recommend, I haven't had any issues or speed problems [​IMG]

    Why do you say it doesn't matter?

    From time to time, you can find $15 (shipped) 8GB class 6 microSDHC on mertline. The brand is PQI. They seem okay thus far. I've had periodic save issues using it on my AceKard 2.1i though. Not sure if this is a problem with my flash cart or the microSD.

    I can't find class 6 microSD cards here, I would have to buy online internationally and it would cost me about 26$.

    I don't care if it takes longer to transfer files from the computer to the card and vice versa, but does it have any impact in gaming?

    I recently picked up the PNY 8GB Class 4 Micro SD from Newegg for like $15. I'd recommend it. It's cheap and it's buttery smooth.
