    So I was considering buying a new MicroSD card. I want to store move movies/music. I have a 2gb (class 2), 8gb (class 4), and 16gb (class 2). I ran h2testw on each, and my class2 16gb card is the fastest <boggle>.

    Test finished without errors.
    Writing speed: 5.43 MByte/s
    Reading speed: 9.95 MByte/s
    H2testw v1.4

    5.43 is almost class 6 speed, correct?

    * Class 2: 2 MB/s
    * Class 4: 4 MB/s
    * Class 6: 6 MB/s

    Since I can't seem to find any authentic class6+ 16GB+ microSDHC cards, I should probably stick with what I have. Thoughts? Anyone know of any faster LEGIT cards out there?

    transcend has a 16gb class 6 microsd
    Amazon.com: Transcend 16 GB microSDHC Class 6 Flash Memory Card TS16GUSDHC6E: Electronics
    i own this one and a 32gb class 2 sandisk. IMO, there isnt much difference. pics save and load in the same amount of time. transferring to and from, i dont see a difference, and i transfer large movies files over 1gb. some have said that the class makes no difference when it comes to the droid phones.

    instead of running that test, why dont you test each card manually by transferring to and from. also test it in the phone and check to load/save times.
