I just bought a 32gb class 6 SD card from Hong Kong.

Does this look like a scam or too good to be true?

FWIW, I've had mixed results with buying cheap electronics and computer stuff on eBay from Asia that doesn't have a brand name. It could be a great deal, it could be a total rip off. As you probably know, ~$21 USD is a fraction of what newegg.com or Amazon.com charges for a 32gb Class 6 SDHC from a recognized manufacturer. It could be that what you're buying is exactly the same without the fancy label... or it could be that what you're buying is part of a batch that couldn't be sold because of quality control concerns.

My guess is that you might find that the read/write speed on most on the card is far slower than Class 6. However, I believe that someone said that the eDGe maxes out at or around Class 4 speeds, so it may not be noticeable.

I bought a SanDisk Ultra SDHC 16GB class4 card today. So far works fine. I'm just copying tones of files on it.

No problems with a SanDisk Ultra 32gb SDHC Card Class 4 (SDSDRH-032G-A11).

Transcend 8GB SDHC Class 6 works fine, as does the 2GB President's Choice branded card (Canadian Grocery store Loblaw's brand) I had to buy in a pinch for my camera.

Thanks for posting the info. I suspect the 64 GB won't work as those are SDXC cards and I think the eDGe only supports SDHC (up to 32 GB) cards. Will be interested to hear your results, though!

When I first got my edge I dropped in my 16gb HDSC card and the EE complained a lot about being damaged, however; take note that after I was able to update my EE I have not had an issue with my EE and its 16gb card, for those looking when they get their new device, upgrade the software first then put in your SD card, chances are it wont bark as much.

I just tried a Class 4 PNY Optima (8GB; part number P-SDHC8G4-EF/S2) and I got the "damaged SD card" notification. Maybe it won't work because it is a self-proclaimed "high speed" card?

So, I just formatted the card, and it seems to work now. Weird!

Not weird at all. This has been discussed in the past where cards aren't always properly formatted...
