    I got the A-Data 150X 4GB card, FAT32 in the ROM and all that. Well, it's getting ~500 VFSMarks:

    File Create 193%
    File Delete 49%
    Fire Write 116%
    File Read 594%
    File Seek 1180%
    DB Export 91%
    DB Import 358%
    Record Access 1005%
    Resource Access 936%
    VFSMark 502

    Am I right to request a replacement?

    Transfering a 200MB file from the PC to the Card (using a USB 2.0 card reader) goes at 3.6MB/s instead of the advertised 15MB/s and going the other way goes at 2.9MB/s instead of 22.5MB/s.

    Anyone else have the A-Data?

    Turns out this is caused mostly by the hardware interfacing with the card rather than the card itself. I bought a Transcend 150x 4GB SD and it benchmarked almost exactly the same on the Treo as well as on my card reader. I changed the card reader to a Sandisk one and the speeds shot up but were again identical.

    Maybe the 700 is faster in this regard.
