    I'll get the 32 gig at some point. But I plan on jumping all over an LTE phone when they come out so I'll probably just wait and get the 32 gig card with that.
    The MotoDev site said at one point that the Droid supports up to Class 6 flash memory cards.

    Here's a link to SanDisk's site on information for the various classes.

    SanDisk's Site Difference between Speed Class and Speed Ratings

    It said "The Speed Class is important for video mode or camcorders, where the device is actually saving a steady stream of data."

    The same site says:

    Which means pictures benefit from the faster pipes available in the higher class memory cards, since the compression isn't usually as high as it is with video.

    From loading pictures, to loading maps, to loading programs... the higher class cards provide better overall performance.

    So the question is, Do you put a 32gb class 2 in the X or 8gb class 6? Is the speed worth the sacrifice of space? I don't use 8gb anyway, so should I just switch to the 8gb? I am thinking yes, what say you guys?

    I'd go for the 16GB (at the minimum) Class 4 or higher. Especially since the 16GB cards are so cheap now.

    I guess I did not specify in my post that I have a 1gb, 2gb, 8gb class 6, 16gb class 2, and 32gb class 2. I really do not want to spend any more money on cards So, 8 or 32? What do you think? Thanks!!

    Some great info guys.

    I haven't used my phone for pics much, but probably will start and I do find the speed kind of annoying.

    I'm going to go for the class 4 or class 6, but I might wait until I upgrade to an LTE phone and the 32gig cards should be cheaper by then.

    Alternatively (and I don't know if this works), would seem to make sense to store apps, photos and video recording (maybe games) on the internal storeage. Then put all your music and movies on the SD card. In that scenario, a class 2 is probably fine?

    Yes, you are probably better off waiting. I got the 32gb with the X. The lady threw it in for 50 bucks! She also gave me my rebate instant, so I did not have to wait. I got that video sent to my phone from the NY marketing dept. where you could upgrade early, sweeeetttttt!!

    Why is the news forum being used for the OP's personal opinions, especially when they are wrong? The Droid's stock 16GB card is class 2 and I hardly see people ever complaining about it's "horrible speed" and slow menus...
