Fastest SD Cards

Most people don’t think to much about buying SD Cards and just buy a cheap one with a lot of memory. I have to disagree because there are many different factors to buying a SD Card such as speed, and from all of the research that I have done it always leads to the website newegg which lists things like speed as “Class 1,2,3,…” and features. Some SD Cards that I have found fast are the SanDisk 8Gb Extreme III, or the Kingston Class 10, but these can be pricy. Remember you can buy these things from or Amazon. Also, note to make sure what kind of SD Card you need to buy like a Micro SD or a Secure Digital SD Card.
