    Question Class 4 or 6 MicroSD on the Bold??

    Advertisement



    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):

    Thanks,
    Eric

    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.

    If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your 16GB card and for how much?

    Thanks.

    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.
