I mean I don't want to buy something that isn't recommended by the community.

Please share~!?

Thanks.

There is a big list of tested SD-cards in the Wiki.

Thanks

But the list is very long. I am really interested in getting what people have... many of these SD cards probably don't offer good speed for I/O operations. I've read many posts regarding how slow some of them are....

Thanks.

I have found the Sandisk Class 4, 8GB to be very reliable, and at less than £5 from either Amazon or Play, cheap.

Hi

Another vote here for that card. Paid £3.52 for mine from Amazon.

Cheers

I'm using 3 of these Kingston 8Gb cards which seem 100% reliable

The first 2 cost about £3.98, but the 3rd bought a week later cost £4.98.
Cheers,

I have a 16 GB, Class 10 AmazonBasics SD card that is working just fine for me.
