Class 10 sounds great, until you remember that it is made by kingston, and the read/write errors will drop the speed below 1mbps.

Killerbug, you don't seem to have a clue what you're talking about. I've been using Kingston for 10 years on both RAM, flash and cards and used to rep them and Kingston makes some of the most reliable and trustworthy memory with the least amount of errors overall.

Stop complaining because of your own isolated bad experience! Ask 10 others and I guarantee you'll discover otherwise. for the pricing..........WHAT A RIP OFF!

I just bought a 32gb MicroSDHC card then lost it the next day. Things are to damn small.
