which micro sd card for the PB360?

Hi All,
is there any particular card that you know works well with the PB360? Any I should steer clear of (it is a present)?

I've had Zero issues with Transcend class 6.
There have been issues (double boot bug) with some San Disks.
The speed/size of the card appears to be the main issue rather than the brand.

The latest firmware (15.3b) fixed my reboot issue with the SanDisk cards.

@Serena: could you please tell me which sandisk cards you have for your 360?

It's the SanDisk 2GB microSD card. I don't know speed, but I did have the reboot issue with the old firmware. I haven't had the issue since I upgraded.

thanks!

@fjtorres: just to be totally on the safe side, which size is your card?

I've tried both 8GB and 16GB in the PB 360 without issue.
I'm currently running the 8GB in the 360 and the 16GB in the IQ.

I am using 1GB Kingston Micro SD.
It was purchased at least 2 years ago. Back then it was quite expensive. You can put more than 1000 books (text-only fiction) on it. It is quite a few years worth of reading.

I never had problem with this card.

I've got a Kingston class 4 4GB microSDHC card in mine. Never had a problem with it and probably won't ever fill it.

@fjtorres: Interesting... I transferred a 16 Gb micro SD from my 360 to my IQ and it wasn't recognised. I now have a 16 Gb full SD in the IQ and it does all I could ask of it. If I remember correctly, both are SanDisk cards. I can't check now, I'm typing this via a PortableApps installation on the micro SD.

The 16 Gb micro SD has never given any trouble on the 360.

so to recap, the following micro SD cards have been proven to work:

Kingston 1GB, unknown speed
Kingston class 4 4GB
SanDisk 2GB, unknown speed (with latest FW)
Transcend class 6 8GB or 16 GB

thank you all!

I have an Entourage eInk/Android tablet, so I'm out of my yard here, but has anyone done or seen testing on what SPEED of micro-SD their device can really EXPLOIT?

I understand burst latency might be a benefit even when sustained read/write speeds differ, but at some point, a faster card doesn't make a worthwhile difference.

Any info?

Thanks
