    Hmm, pretty slow R/W if you ask me, compared to this other 2GB card im looking at that has 8.8MB/S (MAX) on read speed and 5.0MB/S (MAX) on write.

    Which card are you looking at? 2GB, 8.8/5.0 r/w. Wow, that's impressive.

    I just purchased a 2GB A-DATA super microSD card.. Going to do some real-world speed tests using a multi card reader.


    EDIT:

    Here goes...

    FAT16 > FAT32 speed-wise.

    After a couple formats here are the results:

    4.1-4.2 MB/s Write speed

    8.1-8.2 MB/s Read speed

    So you could really say 8MBs/4MBs

    *Transfer of a 1GB file.

    It seems to pick up speed during the end of the transfer.

    EDIT2:

    The program HDTACH rated it at 9.2MB/s [READ speed]

    ps - this card was made in taiwan.

    Edit: see above

    Also, I dont have a slot 1 device (yet), so I cant test that ATM.

    ask them what the random access time for the card is considering that's the most important factor in rom performance.
