What difference does it make what the class of an SD card is?

Here is an article that explains the different classes.  http://sdcard-speed-guide.articles.r-tt.com/

 

Essentially, the higher the number, the faster the card.  A Class 2 SD card has a write speed of about 2MB/s, a class 4 SD card is about 4 Mb/s, and so on.  I generally buy Class 6 cards, but to be perfectly honest, I rarely notice the difference.  Better to have too much than too little is my general creed, so I'd rather have the faster card for the occasional times I actually need it.
