Kingston. It's this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134717
Maybe I just got a dud. It's a Class 4 card. I'm under the impression that is fast enough (or do I need something faster). 

[Update: The first one I ordered was a dud. Got another of the same exact card and it's been rock solid ever since.]



Miscellaneous Notes

Class 2 cards are really S-L-O-W at transferring files to your PC, compared to the Class 6 cards, but half the price for any given size. (Mike Davis)

I have had lots of trouble having my Transcend 16 GB class 2 card recognized. Works perfectly but usually takes 3-4 tries to be recognized.  I just leave it in the recorder and use the recorder as the card reader.

This is the transcend I'm using:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820208453

Or: Transcend 8GB Micro SDHC Flash Card Model TS8GUSDHC6

I ordered two and they work flawlessly and transfer rates are around 15MB or so.  Pretty zippy.

Just be careful...I've read that Sandisk is counterfeited rampantly on ebay, so best not to buy Sandisk off ebay from China.

Buyers have reported that the counterfeits work, but they're often Class 2 in spite of claims they're Class 10 or something similar.

I would never recommend the use of eBay for purchases of this nature.

Buy your new equipment from a reputable retailer like b&h or newegg. Leave eBay for the vintage stuff.

You could buy the cards from ebay and be fine. I wouldn't recommend buying it from someone in China or who is selling a lot of the same cards. Also, if you do get the card, there are ways to test it to see its actual read/write speeds.

I don't see why you'd buy something off eBay when a perfectly good card is available from a reputable retailer such as NewEgg for $12 (shipped).

If you're so cheap that $12 is too much money...you need to find a different hobby. I would suggest walking...or better yet...sitting.

 :) :)  Mike, I don't think Sean's comment had anything to do with being cheap or needing to save a couple bucks.  I took the comment to be more pointing out that Ebay can be a good resource with dealers that are every bit as reputable as newegg, but just be aware that there are frauds out there that use ebay. 

Personally, I find the frauds to be fairly easy to ferret out using some basic ebay/internet precautions, a questioning attitude, and some common sense.

I know alot of people that absolutely refuse to use ebay out of fear of the predator.  I personally kinda think they're crazy and depriving themselves of a good buying/selling resource, but that's just me.

That said, I don't disagree with your logic that, for a small dollar item, you might just want to go with a newegg and eliminate all possibility of getting ripped off from an ebay seller.

FWIW, I bought a 32GB Chinese knock-off Sandisk card on ebay for $14.50.
I didn't intend to have this for critical use, but I've tried it in my M10 and it works fine.
For proper taping, I'll use something else though.

Sorry, seems that this particular seller is no longer registered.
The cheapest BIN I could find at the moment is $27.99:
