    Anyone using one of these? Thoughts?

    I need the extra space for video / photo / music. The Lexar is the cheapest, but I had problems with a Lexar card several years ago that completely failed / corrupted all the photos taken with my DSLR. I've bought Sandisk ever since, but they don't make a class 10 microSDHC. Any opinions on Lexar vs Kingston?

    I found these three:

    Lexar 32GB SDHC Class 10 - $64.24 (on sale)
    http://amzn.com/B004AM610M

    Kingston 32GB SDHC Class 10 - $99.95
    Kingston 32GB microSDHC Class 10 Gen 2 Memory MBLY10G2/32GB B&H

    Sandisk 32GB SDHC Class 6 (apparently sandisk doesn't make a class 10 yet) - $125.99
    SanDiskĀ® Mobile Ultra

    Great question. I've been looking into getting a 32GB card myself. I hope someone with better knowledge than me can answer.

    Also something I'm looking into tomorrow, but class 10 doesn't really matter. Just a way for them to jack up the price, by the time class 10 really DOES make a difference, there'll be a whole new system and/or brand thats even faster faster than those...

    I'll just put this put there...
    Don't get a class ten... The Droids can't handle those speeds... And can problems to arise...
    The best class for the Droid system is either a 4 or a 6

    We have nothing to fear but running out of beer

    I have the lexar class 10, it is very nice, very fast write speed.
    Keep in mind that the class rating affects write speed only, read speeds are about the same.
    To the guy who said the hardware can't handle ot, what's your evidence? It's only 10mB/s. If it can't handle that then I'd be surprised.

    Unless you are using the videocam function a lot, no need to bother with high speed cards. You wont see any difference and reliability may be worse wih higher class cards

    Well, I ended up ordering the Lexar 32GB microSDHC Class 10 card, it went down even further in price today on Amazon to $47.99. Couldn't pass that up (only $10 more than a Sandisk 32GB Class 4).

    And the Bionic can support a class 10 sdhc card, straight from the moto website:

    Here's a discussion with tons of phone card speed info I came across. Basically boiled down to:

    I've been using the Lexar class 10 since I've had my Bionic and it hasn't caused me any issues at all.
