Amazon selling the 16Gb Micro SD card for around $22.60. That's pretty good price.

This is class 2. Wondering if this is suitable for the Vizio tablet?

Yes that will work fine, but if you don't have a card you may want to shop around for one with a higher class. You will notice the speed of the card most when copying a lot of files or large files. So a slower card might be a pain if you have a lot of content to put on it at once when you first get it.

Here is some reading:

SDHC info at Wikipedia

review of 13 SD cards at Tom's Hardware - these are high end cards, but it gives yoou an idea of what speeds are possible.

Becareful of sd cards there are alot of fakes out there. Some state they are 32gb but turn out only being 16gb or less. Only buy name brand. The higher the class the faster the card the better it does.

Most people recommend a class 4 or higher card for tablet use.

Thanks to all responded. In that case, I go with the class 4 or higher. Amazon selling Patriot class 4 microSD 16Gb for $21.98.
I think this is a good deal.

You can get SanDisk Class 4 16GB microSDHC at newegg for about the same price.
