Over on Lockergnome.net, BMM2010 asked: “Does a class and make (manufacturer) of an SD/micro SD card really make a difference?” The short answer is that yes – it does. I have always believed that you get what you pay for. If you think you’re getting an amazing deal, you may end up with junk that will fail on you. Most of the time, you tend to get more bang for your buck. The class of an SD card determines how fast it is. A class 2 card, therefore, should not get the speeds of one that is a class 10… so don’t believe the crap advertising telling you otherwise.
Basically, the higher the class of the card the faster it should run… so long as the device you’re placing it in is capable of managing a high-quality SD card. Always read reviews and do your homework… even when it comes to buying something like this. Buy as much product as you can afford.
Know what you need, and look into what you’ll be getting. Ask others in the community or read reviews found online. Check with coworkers or fellow students. Find out which brands deliver what they promise – those that truly WORK. That’s what you want to go with.
