Pros: dd'ing to the raw device with a block size of 512KB, I got 5108450 bytes/sec average. That's over the rated speed, happy days :)
Cons: It's expensive. I bought this without looking, and you can get more speed, same capacity for less, from the *same company, on newegg.* Bummer. I guess I gotta pay more attention next time. I was going to rate this 4 stars, but it really doesn't deserve it. I'll just avoid newegg next time ;)
Pros: Got this for my SUV stereo system for 4,000 plus MP3 titles I got the slower one cause of price and figured after sync it initially which took about 4 hours I won't have to do that much again at once so the speed not a major factor. Have over 24GB of MP3 files on it and so have plenty more for growth, all my files are 256bit format if I ever need more room I will go with my 128bit files. It works great and I don't expect any problems over the next 5 years or so
Cons: I used this card on a Panasonic HMC 150 camera for a wedding. It burned me BAD. When I took the card to the rental house to check if it could format it, it was taking longer than normal. I should have listened to the man helping me and not used it. At the day of the wedding the card corrupted. I said alright, I just lost all the rehearsal footage. Let me just get another spare card. (I bought two since they were cheap). It corrupted AGAIN. I had ONE hour to speed down...
