    I keep seeing things like "75x" or "80x" when reading about SD cards. And apparently only "fast" ones don't lock up on PoR in the R4. But how do you go about finding out the speed? [​IMG]

    Just test it out. If it works fine, it's fine.

    Use HDTach, roadkil or something similar.

    Kingston/Toshiba/PNY 2GB cards (made in Japan) have read speeds of above 18 MB/s
