    Does anyone know some sort of utility to compare a number of microSD cards for me to know which one is best suited for my Acekard. Right now I have 4 different microSD cards. I want to use the best one. Maybe a utility that will determine which one has the best transfer rate or something similar? Thanks [​IMG]

    Anyone got any recommendations?

    You didn't need to bump the thread, as for the question at hand, I've never heard of a program that does that, sorry.

    I know of two......

    ATTO Benchmark (will test read and write speeds)

    HD Tach (will test read speed and response time)

    Both should be able to be found through Google.

    Keep in mind that such testing is hard on SD cards.

    CrystalDiskMark is all you'll ever need. It's free too, as are his other utilities.

    Make sure you format your cards using the SD Formatter before testing for accurate results.
