Class 10 MicroSD Cards

I was reading in the manual, and it only mentions Class 2, 4, and 6 cards being supported but nothing about class 10. So are Class 10 cards supported? Is there any point in getting a class 10 over a class 6 besides read/write speeds being affected? 

Thanks!

Re: Class 10 MicroSD Cards

If I were you I'd play it safe and get the Class 6 64G MicroSDXC card.  Class 10 should be faster, but if the manual doesn't mention it I'd stick with what is documented.

 

If you really want a class 10 card you could also call up costomer service and ask them.  They might be able to tell you for 100% certain.

 

You could also just take your chances and try a class 10 card, just keep your receipt to return it if it doesn't work out.

The higher class cards are really intended for devices that need to constantly re write at higher speeds, cameras for example. They are kind of overkill for most tablet uses.

My Class 10 16GB card is working fine in my HD+.

Re: Class 10 MicroSD Cards

Yeah, I have some photographer friends (who doesn't hese days? :smileywink:) and they all prefer the class 10 so I'd heard that. However, the class 10 ones I've found cost the same as the class 6 so to me it doesn't make sense to get a lower class.

Flyingtoastr, that's good to hear that you're successfully using one! Thanks for letting me know. I'll probably just go ahead and get a class 10.

Thanks everyone!
