CENTON 32GB SD/SDHC class 10 @$37.49 +FS, no rebates
 
CENTON MediaPower 32GB SD/SDHC Flash Card Model 32GBSDHC10
[newegg.com] has goood reviews despite CENTON's cheap brand recognition.
But at $1.17/GB for a 32GB class 10 card, it is a hard to beat deal.
Add free shipping, no rebate hassle and excellent customer support from newegg and that makes it a great deal.:yummy:
You can get the same card for a few extra bucks at microcenter or amazon.

For the $2.50 difference I will still order from Amazon. Need a larger fast card for my digital camera for video.

class 10 means only 10 mb/s, if you even get that, with the liberal use of class's from most manf. And the class system is garbage, class 2 = 2 mb/s, class 4 = 4 mb/s, so on, who's wants such slow memory cards?(that ancient system had to be devised pre HD era). HD video and cameras need like 20 mb/s or more. I'm pretty disappointed in the sdhc market, reminds me of the psu market where every shyster is advertising "peak" wattage instead of continuous.

I hate to burst your bubble but most consumer camcorders need less than 4MB/s even for 1080p recording modes. 10MB/s is more than enough and probably is a good hedge against manufacturers that 'augment' the ratings of their cards.

The class system is better than the X system we had before. Class 10 is "at least" 10 MB/s whereas 133X means "up to" 133x 150KB/s. That old system was abused to no end.

Summary:
class 10 >= 10 MB/s :)

hahaha what video camera do you use that writes at 20MB/s? The Canon 7D (which uses CF cards) and/or Rebel T2i (which could actually use this card) needs about 8 MB/s sustained speed TOPS. No camera out there that uses SDHC cards writes anything faster than that (yet), especially in the consumer-grade arena.

The class system is a decent way of guaranteeing that you get a minimum level of performance. it's not perfect but i've never had a major disappointment from it. however, it is nice to buy higher performance cards that exceed their class rating- I have a Sandisk SDHC class 4 that gets me 13-15mb/s sustained.
