    But it costs 200 more than strontium.

    I have 1400/- budget for both. purchasing 2 cards of different class is the only option if i chose to go for transcend.

    Btw which one is better b/w strontium class 10 and samsung class 6

    Sandisk any day for microSD cards.
    And you don't need any card with above class 6 for your phone (P500). I have the same phone, and for me Class 4 suffice.

    I have no idea for PSP though.

    Few people from other forum suggested class 6 samsung/sandisk as both have similar read speed.

    See class 10 sandisk card is the best, but for you even class 4 sandisk card will work good

    @arroraanant : that's why i'm confused. :( i have class 4 kingston with read / write speed = 15.2MBps / 4.1 MBps. . my friend with transcend class 10 card gets 10.1 MBps write and 18MBps read speed.

    there is big difference in write speed but only 3MBps diff. in read speed. so does it worth spending more on a class 10 card?

    as i will use my microSD in a PSP and a phone.

    ^^ Doesn't matter whatever class of card you use. Your phone can't really achieve that speed if it doesn't need to.
    A phone with 720p video recording "needs" the high speed since it has to store the video and audio data onto the card at very high rate. That's why for them a card of class 6 or 10 is required.
    But your phone don't need that kinda speed, so a class 10 card would be over kill.

    But if you "can" buy a class 10 card, there's no reason you shouldn't. Since you will also be future proofed.

    I think you should go for samsung as it is cheaper and reliable..I bought samsung class 6 16 GB card for my brother.. so I can say it does has good speed so why not save money instead or spending more on sandisk

    Go for whatever cheaper and has higher class. IMO all MMC cards are reliable as long as you safely remove them before taking out memory card.

    I somewhat agree on that, the difference is very less.
    But get something from transcend,sandisk, samsung or some other reliable brand only.
