A class 4/6 will do you on a tablet, you won't really benefit from the higher read/write speeds if your recording/watching SD video.
Avoid the working classes there scum


But like danmc says 10 are the best speed wise & work your way down
There's rarely much in it price wise, so you might as well get the fastest card you can (UHS-1 btw is about the same as or a bit faster than class 10 unless you have an SDXC capable device, which you probably don't).

If you like want to copy a movie or two onto the card to watch on the tablet, then faster is good if you don't want to wait around for it to copy.

If you're going to install apps on the card then faster cards will make them load slightly quicker.

If all you're going to do is keep photos and mp3s on it, then you don't need the speed, but if you ever might repurpose the card in the future then better to get something that won't be excruciatingly slow.

Unless you're on a super tight budget there's no reason not to get class 10, there's no compatibility issue, there are no devices that will only take a slower card.
