SD Card Preference

I recently purchased a K-5 and wanted to know if there was a common card most people use that is smooth for usage. i.e. A card that keeps up with high rate a photos being taken (shutter speed). And has no issues with HD recording. With my old K100d I just used a normal SD card (4GB). I've already upgraded my cards for my new camera.

Using ChkFlsh on my 2009 Toshiba (Vista) laptop here are my results if anyone cares. I plan to use 2 for my K-5 and 2 for my GoPro Hero3 Black Edition.

All WRITE SPEEDS.

Micro Samsung 16GB Plus Extreme Class-10
15.85 mb/s

Micro Sandisk 16GB Ultra UHS-1
11.45mb/s

Samsung Essential 16GB Class-10
16 mb/s

Sandisk Extreme UHS-1
17.68 mb/s

Sandisk 2GB Class-2
6.36 mb/s

Kingston 4GB Class-4
4.5 mb/s

32 GB Film Pro Class-10
10.5 mb/s

Micro 2 GB Samsung
6.8 mb/s

32 GB Adata Class-10
4 mb/s RETURNED

I presume my laptop is what is holding back some of the numbers I received.

I use PNY.
I have a 16 gig 30 mbs for shooting on my t3i.
And a 32gig 20mbs for recording on my tx10
I used to be all about Sandisk, but after going thought three of their cards, I switched over.
One of them got corrupted and is unable to reformat, the other somehow lost all of its data( this sucked, I lost a ton of pictures) and the other is permanently locked and can't get into it at all. No problems with PNY yet.

What makes my car.
