    Well, here they are, and they are somewhat dissapointing:

    VFSMark Results 02/11/05

    Kingston 512MB Sandisk 1GB Extreme

    File Create: 30% 387%
    File Delete: 16% 189%
    File Write: 6% 170%
    File Read: 662% 692%
    File Seek: 907% 842%
    DB Export: 21% 218%
    DB Import: 476% 498%
    Record Access: 804% 738%
    Resource Access: 752% 768%

    VFSMark: 408 500

    The test ran significantly faster on the Sandisk than on the Kingston, so I dont get these results. I wonder if it could be a limitation of the software since it hasnt been updated in a while. I ran the test six times, and every time it ran a little bit faster. This were the results of the 3rd run. The six run had a VFSMark of 517.

    Is there any newer software out there to run some of these tests?

    I'm not sure if it's "newer", but you can try CardSpeed.

    Cardspeed gave me

    Wrt32bit: 453 bytes/sec
    Wrt8KB: 236165 bytes/sec
    Read8KB: 2912711 bytes/sec

    It is kinda weird to compare these against some of the faster Ultra IIs in the database. Makes no sense. An Ultra II with a VFSMark of 619 (the fastest of the bunch) has a Wrt8KB speed of 188592, while mine has 236165 and one with a VFMMark of 558 has a Wrt8KB speed of 514007 (HALF A MILLION).

    I can only say that the write speed difference is VERY noticeable - the pictures I take that save automatically to the card are almost instant - before I had to wait 2-3 seconds for them to write. Reading pics in the Media app is about the same, which is consistent with the VFS results. BackupBuddyVFS FLIES!!!! I can even do Checkpoint backups (when it backs up everything in a different directory from scratch) and its as fast as if it were just comparing files in my old card. I like it!!!
