Slow and expensive
on 18 February 2014
It isn't made clear in the product description, but this is a class 4 SD card. Given that this is *more* expensive than class 10 cards from alternative manufacturers (Transcend, for example), which run 2.5x faster, it's hard to recommend this product.
I bought this for a Raspberry Pi based XBMC setup and it was horrendously slow. Sent it back and got the Transcend alternative and the difference was obvious immediately. Scanning my media library (admittedly a slow, one-off operation) would take ~3 hours before, and now it takes 20 minutes.
On the plus side it works, it's just more expensive and vastly slower than the alternatives.
