16GB Class 10 SDHC Card @ Play

I have been looking for a SDHC card for my E5 (when it arrives).

I have just purchased a 16GB Class 10 Transcend SDHC card from play.com

At the time of writing this post it is 17.29 (using voucher code trans123)delivered.

Now, I have done some testing with my Lexax UDMA CF/SD card reader....and I am very impressed with the performance.

I used ATTO Hard drive benchmark tool to write 256MB worth of data in different block sizes from 512KB to 8192KB. The lowest write speed was 18976KB/s and the highest was 20002KB/s the read speed was 21682-2735KB/s

I was not expecting this level of performance for a card of 17.29 for 16GB

I dont know how long this offer will last, but I am getting a couple more for my laptops.

I also purchased a 8GB Class 10 for 9.99, but the speeds were much lower.
