Class 4 or 10 sd card in your Pi
« on: March 17, 2017, 07:39:57 PM »
I am trying to decide if I should get class 4 or 10 sd cards for my Pi's.  Does it make a difference?  I currently have a mix of both, all 8gb. They seem to function the same but I'm not sure.

I run nothing but class 10's.  The class 10's are faster.

I too only run Class 10 cards. The price diff is so small.

Me to on class 10,  I would not even consider a lower class.  Money wise you are are talking about something less than rounding error on your light show investment.  Why not get the best available.

I could not get FPP to run correctly with a class 4.  I reinstalled several times until I tried a 10 and all my problems disappeared.

Ok thanks for all the comments. I'll just do class 10 going further. I thought all mine were that already but when I was going through them last week I noticed I had some class 4. I am guessing those came with a Pi kit.  I'll just replace those with 10.

I use class 6 without issue. I try to avoid 4, but we aren't doing anything here that warrants a 10, unless you are playing mp4s over the HDMI to a projector.
