I'm using an A-data 8GB Class 10 now. Also a Patriot 8GB Class 4. Have also used a Transcend 4GB Class 6. None of these have given me any problems at all.

I've been buying the cheapest, fastest without regard to name brand with never an issue. The PQI SDHC Class 10 cards at Supermediastore.com get good reviews.

The thing with these really large cards, like 32GB, is whether you want to put all your eggs in one basket. If the card fails on a vacation you could lose thousands of pics.

I'm going to Africa in April for 2+ weeks. I think, to avoid the disaster scenario, I may use a bunch of $5 each 4GB Class 10 cards and use each card for 1-2 days and then store it away.
