1. SD Cards have a speed associated with it, so the higher the speed the faster.

2. Adapters with microSDHC (mini) cards is also known to be worce than a SD only card, because of the additional contacts.

3. These adapter cards don't click in properly, and may fall out on some adapters.

4. Rather buy a proper SD card read/writer for the image burning, I have an al cheapo (USB) thats quits halfway the dd process, So I got a Transcend ( nine in one) that works well

Well I only use one type at the moment, sandisk 8gb class 2 micro adapter with sandisk adapter. The pi runs just fine with a class 2, although I'm looking into some class 4 4gb for specific projects.
