    Good day!

    I've ordered an M3 Lite Pro and i'm gonna buy a microSD card for it.


    By looking at this list: http://m3wiki.com/index.php?title=Media_Card#Micro_SD_Cards

    I can see that Twinmos ain't there. My local store only has Twinmos MicroSD (I'm choosing the 1 GB version).


    When comparing: Twinmos has 10 MB read speed and 8 MB Write
    Kingston has 8 MB read speed and 6,5 MB Write
    Sandisk has 10mb read speed and 1,5 mb write.


    Clearly, Twinmos is superior her, when looking at speeds.

    Has anyone here tested the Twinmos chip? [​IMG]

    If anyone tests a particular brand of card, usually we try and get it published on wiki. Kingston and Sandisk both have really good reviews themselves, so if this Twinmos is that much better, I hope it shows. [​IMG]

    I have a Sandisk 1G card which doesn't run the Castlevania DoS-intro at full speed unless you use FAT16 with 64k clusters. Using my Corsair 1G card, I get full speed with FAT32 (PoR also runs very well on this). I also have a TwinMOS card, seems to equal the Corsair in performance and price (both were ~$40).
