So I want to get an 8GB memory card to put music and videos on. ... BlackBerry Bold forum
Class 4 or 6 MicroSD on the Bold??
So I want to get an 8GB memory card to put music and videos on. Was wondering if there was any reason to spend extra $ on Class 4 or Class 6 microSD or is the Class 2 sufficient. My understanding is that older blackberries didn't operate fast enough to even take advantage of anything faster than Class 2. Is this still the case w/ the Bold or will I notice a speed difference? I know that I will notice a difference when connecting the memory card to my PC and loading it up but I am more concerned w/ the Bold reading/writing to the card.
SanDisk's standard cards are all Class 2 I believe. I have liked their stuff in the past. I am also considering these two which are priced pretty reasonably (but all else being equal I would go w/ SanDisk):
Kingston (Class 4; comes w/ USB adapter):
A-Data (Class 6):
I can say that I did notice the difference between a class 2 and a class 6 in my Bold. I'm not really sure how much you'll notice between a 4 and 6 though. Currently I have a sandisk 16GB class 2 and it is darn slow compared to my older 8GB class 6.

( Recorded and Movies) works very well with no skip pause type of thing that was going on with my 8310 and the Same card.

That's helpful. Thanks. Think I am going to go w/ the Kingston Class 4....seems like a good deal plus it includes a USB adapter and is a brand I've heard of before.
