In case of MEMORY CARDS,
CLASS is directly proportional to SPEED of READ/WRITE.

Class 4 , NORMAL SPEED
Class 6 , BETTER SPEED
Class 10 , BEST IN SPEED ( also the costliest)
.
as per use,
Class 4 , 6 can be used for mobile phones , music players etc.
Class 10 , should be used for DIGITAL CAMERA and CAM CORDERS
