We've got a Tablet coming from the 1-day website; it takes up to a 32Gb Micro SD card and I'm wondering what brand and class I need.    I do know that the camera on it is pretty poor so it won't need high speed unlike my DSLR, but do I need a class 10 or would I be better with a class 4?
I've used Adata or Sandisk so far, but am now seeing bad reviews for Adata so I'm now second guessing myself.   I don't want to spend a heap on the card considering the tablet isn't expensive. 
Fingers are crossed that it does the job we need (mostly reading PDF's).

TIA

It looks like the 2 month old ADATA microSD card in my wifes S3 has had a partial meltdown - so I won't be recommending them.

I've just ended up ordering an Adata class 10 32gb from Ascent.  I figure with a 5 year warranty and I've had no problems with Adata before.   I don't want to order Samsung or Sandisk from Amazon, too far away if it has issues and Sandisk over here is horribly expensive for the same thing.   If there are any further recommendations please do post them though, for just in case it does fail and I need to revisit the whole thing.

Make sure you back up anything on it that you don't want to loose then - my wife is gutted as she has lost some replaceable photos off hers.

Thanks for that, I think most of what we'll be doing on it will be excel files (read only) and PDF's, most of the photo's are stored on the laptop and backup hard drive so that shouldn't be an issue.    Probably time to back up to DVD again actually, thanks for the reminder!
