    So I'm planning on getting a Surface PRO next year, but I want to simply max out the memory with a 64GB MicroSDXC card. I plan on using the mounting tricks to use it for my music and video's.
    Any suggestions on what card to get? I would prefer to get it on Amazon as most places around me will start a 64GB card at $75-$100 and Amazon starts much lower.

    Ditto on that SanDisk, exactly what I use and some other members I believe do.

    It's my understanding that the class speed shouldn't be a major factor.

    Well, when I get closer to getting a Surface, I will get that card. I have no use for it right now, and nothing I have can use a MicroSDXC.

    I've used a class 4 without a problem on videos, music and photos.

    Class10 isn't really necessary, but has some advantages in terms of speed when reading/writing on your pc (especially when using a usb 3.0 card-reader). If you want 64GB there's no other way than SDHX and at the time this means the Class10. I've bought this 2month ago and have no problems.

    Ya, my point is to just get the max and be done with it. If I can only get a class 10 its not a problem.
