What class is the Sandisk?

No problem hornetsam, I seen that one & tbh if it doesn't tell you the class then I won't buy it.
Some reviews on play say it is class 2 which is what I would have expected.
Don't forget your nectar points from amazon folks.

Would rather go for the Amazon one, better customer service and faster delivery. I already have this card and it's really fast. Better than the Play one listed above.

Oh and for an extra 50p you get the adaptor bundled amazon.co.uk/Tra…-12

pretty sure sandisk is class 2 this is class 6. got one of these new from amazon market place for £11.22 inc del just a few days ago to use in a Nokia 5230

is it? the lower the class the better it is or visa-versa?

hmm but they do give 5 year warranty ;-)

There is also available on Amazon a version for £13.99 with a microSD to SD adaptor and another version for £13.99 with two adaptors (microSd to miniSD and miniSD to SD).

BTW, the Class rating is the minimum sustained write speed (in MB/s). So the higher the better.

A class 4 is twice as fast as a class 2, a class 6 is 3 times faster than a class 2 etc.

Thanks for all your input folks, it would appear that this is the cheapest 8Gb 'Class 6' MicroSDHC card at this moment in time.
Think I will take the plunge & pimp my desire!

Class 6 nice, was holding out for a 16gb but in all honesty I'll probably not come close to filling it up.
Shall live in my Galaxy S.

Edit:
Scratch that, just looked at my SD card, it came with a class 6 8GB card, hmmmm will need to make the phone read from the SD card.

Nice one, my Desire came with a 4Gb Class 4 card installed which is almost full.
Looked at 16Gb cards too but they were pricey, mymemory had Class 10 ones for just short of £100.
This should suffice for the time being.

Not quite. The class tells you the minimum speed it will go. Most cards will work faster than their minimum speed most of the time, it's just important for things like video recording that the card never goes slower than a certain speed as that would mean losing frames of video.

So you could think of it like a train company promising that their trains will never be more than 20 minutes late. Most of the time they are less than 20 minutes late, but you know that if you get a train that is scheduled to arrive at least 20 minutes before you need to get to your destination, then you will always get there on time.

So a Class 4 has twice the worst-case minimum speed of a Class 2 and a Class 6 three times the worst-case minimum. In actual usage there may be much less difference in speed, although a Class 6 will generally be significantly faster than a Class 2.
