Not running at 30Mb/sec
on 29 January 2014
I had read on the Inetrnet that many SanDisk cards being sold are in fact knock offs (even from Amazon) so I tested this card using the well known utility h2testw_1.4 with the card plugged directly into the slot on my computer, not using a USB adapter.
The card came in a "Frustation Free" package that has Amazon's name on, and was "Sold" by Amazon, not "Fullfilled" by Amazon so I was confident it was the genuine article.
The reults of the test showed the card was 8Gb, however, read/write speeds were not 30Mb/sec! Writing speed was only 14.5 MByte/s while Reading speed was 19.1 MByte/s.
The "get out" of course is that the value 30Mb/s is only üpto", but I was not getting anything like that.
