    I've got a Supercard Lite and a Superkey, and am getting a 1gb MicroSD for them now. Are these speeds fast enough to play games without any slowdown?

    Read speed Up to 7MB per second
    Write speed Up to 2MB per second


    Thanks

    The SuperCard Lite runs best with a microSD that is 60X or higher. This is not to say it doesn't run good with a regular one but the high speed one just gives you better performance overall. I am doing some speed tests and comparisons between the SanDisk 1GB Ultra II and the SanDisk 1GB microSD's with the SuperCard Lite and will post my results this coming week.

    No 88X is pretty good. The highest for SD/miniSD is 150X and microSD is 80X.

    12x is 1.8MB/s

    so.. 1x = 0.15 MBs?

    Gambia, The
    Yeah, it's the same as with CD-ROM drives.

    1x = 150kB/s

    No, CF have the same speed rating system as SD/miniSD and it should say it on the site where you buy it from.
