    I would like to use Link2SD on a microSD card.
    It's a Class 4, V7 16GB microSD card from a trusty vendor like Walmart.
    It's also the cheapest I can find.
    My phone is really low on space and I'd like to stock up on games to kill time on the way to our destination and Link2SD is ideal.
    So, is this Class 4 V7 worth getting for this purpose?
    This is half the price of a Class 2 SanDisk, so I'm a bit worried.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Sandisk is a good brand and as long as it's a minimum class 4 it should be fine. I had an 8gb class 4 sandisk from wally world and used link2sd with no issues.

    Now I'm running a class 10 and although not spectacular I do see faster transfers over usb and when linking apps.

    Sorry, didn't edit OP enough.
    This isn't a SanDisk, this is a V7 Class 4, half the price of a SanDisk Class 2.
    Should I buy?

    Ah.. never heard of v7. If I was buying one I don't think I'd buy this one. I'd get a name brand one and if you don't mind spending a bit more go with a higher class. Check out Amazon or Newegg.

    But I'm leaving soon and I don't have enough time to buy one online, I need one in-store. It's either this Class 4 V7 for $10 or a Class 2 SanDisk for $20.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy the V7 or SanDisk. If it were me, I would buy the biggest MicroSD card for $10. I got the 8GB on recommendation of others. I have never used more than 2.5 GB of space. Unless you have a large music collection, I would hold off of 16GB.

    Just an opinion

    But do you think the brand matters? I mean, I can spare a few more bucks for 16GB, and I have lots of music, but I don't know if I should spend more for a slower SanDisk or less for a faster Not-Well-Known-Name (V7).
    Both have gotten very good reviews.

    Did some research and V7 is made by AData for Ingram Micro. I have used AData memory and it's good ram and gets good reviews. Should be good sdcards

    Oh, nice!!! And, I need a backup plan to get an SD if V7 isn't available.
    I was thinking a SanDisk. Would a Class 2 SanDisk do well for Link2SD?
