I doubt that a recorder can benefit from anything other than the basic 
speed. The high-performance cards are usually intended for use in digital 
cameras where it's important (especially for professionals such as sports 
photographers) to be able to take multiple shots in just one or two seconds. 
Usually, there's a published "recovery time" for digital cameras and this 
can be significantly reduced by using the faster cards. Since this doesn't 
apply to recording, I don't think you need to waste the money on anything 
but the most basic card.

Hello list folks.
I'm expecting to get my Edirol R-09 very soon and have started
prepairing for its arrival. I want to buy a 2 Gig SD card and have been
shopping around to get the best price. Here comes my question:
When i was talking to a computer shop the other day about these cards,
the fellow on the phone asked me whether i wanted a standard, an ultra
or an Xtreme card. -- Are there more than one type of cards? i asked,
feeling the confusion start to rize in me. I thought that an SD card was
one card and not that i had to choose between cards with different
speeds and the like and the Lord knows what else, so could someone help
an utterly confused soul and answer this question: What should be used
in a recorder meant for high-end recording such as the Edirol R-09?
