    Doesn't seem to be any compiled list of SD card performance!

    With so many brands, types, sizes, its hard to know which is best!

    I thought it would be good if people downloaded both VFSMark and CardSpeed (both Freeware!) and tested their memory card with them - i.e., to POST THE RESULTS!

    Please do not use this forum as general discussion, just to post results. I will follow with some of my memory card's benchmarks.

    Oh yeah, let's keep this to cards above 64 MB in size as well.

    Looks like this one is a major POS for writing. Read speeds are impressive.
    It seemed to suck writing, and I was right! F* this, I'm gettin' me a new card tomorrow that has good write speeds. Looks like the Sandisk Ultra II is a good bet. I guess this slow one will be good for strictly reading MP3s or something since it's great on the reading.

    Card Speed is Poor. Avoid > 11Khz PCM



    And here I thought Panasonic would be better than SanDisk...

    I ran the tests again and everything went down by 2 to 8 points. Does that mean if I don't test the card it will stay at the original speed? (Just kidding.)

    Wait ... I ran it again and it's getting worse! This card will be dead by morning!
