This SD memory was offered for sale as a 60X card, which would put the read as 10 MB/s & read around 9 MB/s. For the price Newegg.com was selling it for, this seemed too good to be true. Here's the SiSoft Sandra 2002 memory benchmark score (two runs were identical):

Test File Size : 219MB

Benchmark Breakdown
Buffered Read : 7 MB/s
Sequential Read : 7 MB/s
Random Read : 6 MB/s

Not quite 60X, more like 45X, but still speedy. However,the card itself is unimpressive. Its noticably thinner than my other SD cards, which makes it feel somewhat flimsy. It also has no locking switch (to prevent overwriting). The card tends to be stubborn to fully seat in the camera, perhaps because its is so thin.

However, given that it was selling for the same price as 15x 256 SD cards, its a great deal. The increase in write speeds does get me to the next picture much quicker. I'm keeping the card, but when I need a another card, I'll probably pass on this one & get a little more substanial card.

Expand got feedback?
