What's the best card for CM7
I originally posted this as a reply to an old thread but it didn't get any responses so I'm creating a new thread. Hoping to get a response today because one of the cards I'm looking at is on a deal-of-the-day type of thing.
What does everyone recommend for SD size, speed and brand if I'm planning on running CM7 from the card (not rooting the NC).
I used to have a 4gb (I think) class 4 SD back when I did the honeycomb boot. It didn't work all that well and even though I kept finding that card floating around the house for about a year now - just recently (now that I want it again) it has disappeared. So Now I need to buy a new one for CM7.
What is the minimum speed? And is there a maximum speed (meaning cards that are say class 10 seem to fail)?
What is a minimum or maximum size (does the NC recognize 32gb cards)?
Lastly, is there a preferred brand? I remember seeing at one point a post somewhere where somebody recommended only SanDisk, but I can't remember why.
There is a 32gb SanDisk Class 4 for $30 on newegg
There is also a 16gb Patriot Class 10 on sale for $18.00 (daily deal)
and best of both looks to be a 32gb PNY Class 10 for $39.00
I'm leaning towards the 16gb class 10 for performance and the price - but at the same time, I don't want to future limit myself by not getting a 32gb.
Lastly, I don't want to spend TOO much because this is actually my wife's nook that I will only get to use when she isn't using it. And because eventually, I will be getting a full tablet for myself (haven't found the right one yet). But that is also one of the reasons I might want a 32gb so I can just format it and utilize it for my full tablet once I pull that trigger.
