    I just realized that my 8gb MicroSD card is only a Class 2.
    When I bought it, I had no idea there were such things as classes.
    Anything I can do? Complain to the company?
    And is it that much slower than the higher classes?

    Since you had no idea there were classes, complaining to the company will serve no purpose. Class 2 is considerably slower than a class 6. OTOH, if you're not noticing anything bogging down your device when running from a class 2, it's no big deal anyway.

    Of course, with the prices of sd cards now, you can always go buy a class 6 card.

    Most users do fine with any class, but some of us find benefit in the higher class cards.

    I'm not seeing where you have a complaint to make with the seller. They never told you it was something other than what it is. I mean they didn't say it's class 6 and sell you a class 2. They obviously didn't say and usually sellers who don't say are selling class 2. And you probably got a good deal on the price didn't you ?

    Here's a thread with some varied viewpoints that you should review:

    You've got an additional 8GB of space and that's not a bad thing .

    And I've got a Sandisk 1GB card that does not have a class marking on it. Many of the class 2 cards don't.

    On Sandisk's own web site they still sell the 2GB card with this image and it does not have a class marking, not even on the card its self.

    That's because the smaller cards are a different type of card. 1 & 2 GB cards are MicroSD and do not have a class rating. 4GB and bigger are MicroSDHC and will always have a class rating.

    Not all SD and not all SHC are have ratings or markings for class noted.

    Examples of 4 and 8 gb SDHC without them:
    Amazon.com: Sandisk 8GB Ultra II SD HC Secure Digital SDHC Card (SDSDH-8192, Static Package): Electronics

    Newegg.com - SanDisk 4GB Micro SDHC Flash Card Model SDSDQ-4096-A11M - Flash Memory

    Newegg.com - SanDisk Extreme III 4GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model SDSDRX3-4096-A21 - Flash Memory

    I have a dozen sandisk SDHC around of varying memory and physical sizes and half have no class markings or rating

    You know how you can do a quick test?

    Do you have Vista?

    Find the biggest chunk of file and copy it to your MicroSD using a USB reader of course. Notice the MB/sec. Take the highest number.

    Now do it on another spare MicroSD card. Then compare the MB/sec.

    I notice having a different SD reader/writer make some difference.

    I got my Class 4 MicrsoSD for $12 something last week shipped. It transfer at 4.8 mb/sec

    I have a 8 GB SanDisk E extreme SD card and it transfer at 9.5 mb/sec.

    You will notice the slow speed when you transfer files. But when your phone is R/W by an app I dont think you would notice the speed difference.
