    16gb micro sd speeds

    im looking to get a 16gb micro sd, i'll most probably get a class 2 as anything above (class 4, 6) are rare or too expensive.

    but what are the real transfer speed??

    write speed are suppose to be as follow
    * Class 2: 2 MByte/s - 13x
    * Class 4: 4 MByte/s - 26x
    * Class 6: 6 MByte/s - 40x

    but i have a 8gb class 4 which writes at roughly 10mb/s and have a 8gb class 6 which roughly writes at 12mb/s.

    btw, duracell have come out with a 16gb micro sd, seen a few on ebay which some sellers claim are class 4, for £28-£31

    Just tried a 657mb file on a 8gb class 2 and it wrote at 6mbs

    this doesn't help, this is where i got my info in the first place which isn't accurate, i wanted people to post they're real results, like i did with my class 4 and 6 cards.

    So your cards don't meet the minimum speeds specified?

    they appear to perform better!! or am i mistaken?

    imagine trying to fill up a 16gb card at 2mb/s

    I'm not sure if you have read and understood the link I posted, but they are MINIMUM speeds, so your cards and readings are fine.

    i don't want to know the minimum speeds, i want to know what speed people are actually getting, most importantly the transfer speed for a 16gb class 2 micro sd
