    Does the class of a micros sd card indicate the speed at which it can read and write?

    Thanks for the info. What class is the stock card in a D2G? The one that comes in it from Verizon. Havent' pulled it to see. Just wondering if anyone knows off the top of their head.

    Its a class 2 which is the slowest. For the most part you dont need a high class card if your not running Apps2SD which really isnt needed since the D2G has 8GB of storage on board. If your looking for a high speed card at a good price:
    Newegg.com - Transcend 8GB Micro SDHC Flash Card Model TS8GUSDHC6
    This is the one I use.

    If your wanting a USB adapter you can buy one for a MicoSD card cheap on ebay. I bought one the other day for 99 cents with free shipping, and it actually supports MicroSD, and full size SD cards as well. Or you can grab this one:
    Newegg.com - Transcend 8GB Micro SDHC Flash Card with P3 card reader Model TS8GUSDHC6-P3
    It says it is a PS3 card reader but I see no reason it wont work on a PC.

    I was thinking about getting a higher class micro sd card because I have a lot of pictures on my phone and it is slow loading them when I first open the gallery. Who makes a good 16GB micro sd card at a fair price?

    I use a 16gb class 4 card made by Topram ($40 on amazon). Worth every penny for music, movies and nandroids etc...

    If your rooted you can use sd card booster or a similar app to change the default kb value from '128kb' to a higher value like '3072kb/4092kb' ..I've noticed a little snapper gallery and image loading is a little quicker and I have tons of images on my sdcard

    the droid 2 and 2 global dont benefit much from the sd cache tweak. i noticed a sustained average increase of maybe 5% doubling it to 256 and again to 512 and anything after that actually worsened the average read/write.

    I subjectivity have not noticed a difference with sd speed increase but when I run a read/write test, it's waaaay faster. I'm on a d2. I run the speed increase anyway. I believe the ideal is 2048 or something close to that

    If you're talking about the sd cache, i believe it's 128kb or something
