Trying to find the best MicroSDHC card...

by MrKassner - 1/20/10 7:37 PM

I've finally upgraded my phone from an original LG Rumor that I've had a couple years now to the new Samsung Instinct s30 (wish I could of gotten the Instinct HD but either way I still love the Instinct phones and will be keeping this one till it works no more) that I will be receiving tomorrow but the 2GiB MicroSD card I bought for my LG Rumor when I first got it will be no where near enough for all my music, well actually it already is too small to hold even half my music, and I'm assuming the Instinct can play videos so I will have some movies on there too but they will be converted to a lower resolution so they will be only a couple hundred MiB's. So I went to NewEgg.com looking at all the 16GiB MicroSDHC cards and narrowed it down to these:
RiDATA ($48.99) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820183245
A-DATA ($62.99) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820211378
OCZ ($67.99) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227489

Each are 16GiB, MicroSDHC, Class 6, memory cards leaving the only differences being brand and price so I figured since so many flash DRIVE tests can be found on Google I'll look for MicroSDHC reviews/tests on Google but the results aren't the best and I didn't really find anything at all to help. I know I'm being picky here but could anyone tell me if they've had any experiences (good/bad) with these cards, if theirs one even better that you recommend (has to be 16GiB and Class 6), etc. It's going to be a couple weeks before I can save up the money for one of these memory cards so I figure I might as well take the time to make sure I get the best.
