I want to buy a Clip+ and I’m not sure witch option I should take:
2GB Clip+ with 16GB microSDHC (class 2) = 18GB total
8GB Clip+ with 8GB microSDHC (class 6) = 16GB total
Both options are nearly the same price in Europe (option 1 is even slightly cheaper).
Option 1 looks better for me because i don’t have to separate my music on two drives (all files would fit on the microSD). That’s more comfortable and also I could easily use the microSD with all my music in other devices (i.e. my laptop). The problem is that 16GB microSD-cards are only affordable in class 2 (very low write speed). That’s why option 2 could be better (for speed issues).
Can anyone tell me if microSD-cards (class 2) are a lot more slowly than the internal memory? Concerning both: copying files to my clip and for updating the data base. Should i rather take a microSD-card (class 6) and live with worse usability?
