    KingMax SD Cards??

    Anyone use the KingMax SD Cards with the PPC's? Techbargains says Newegg has them for $64.99 for a 1 GB....

    newegg has the very fast KingMax 1GB 60x SD Secure Digital Card for a low $64.99 after rebate, $4.81 shipping. Tax in CA, NJ, TN, PR. 512MB version $39.51, $4.81 shipping.

    I am not sure what to make of the speed ratings.

    Here is some discussion regarding this card at fatwallet

    60x?

    A cheaper option is the PNY from J&R (50 AR)

    but some guys are reporting possible issues with data loss


    pny

    I bought the PNY before the thread started. So far so good over the past few days.

    I have a Kingmax on the way. Not sure if I'll keep it. I think we should set up a SD card benchmarking thread.

    So, according to this...A Data has good read times. I am mostly interested in stroing some DVD's...so write time is not as important. Time to look for some A Data's..anyone else have experience with them?

    Also, this looks interesting...

    I actually own the KingMax 60x one. It works well. However, I did have an incident where my battery was running low and all of a sudden my XV-6600 couldn't recognize the card and wanted to format it. I'm not sure if it was a problem with the battery level being low or the card flaked out on me. The other issue is that I cant seem to load it on my laptop's memory card reader. It's got like a 4-in-1 memory card reader, but for some reason my XP w/ SP2 wants to format it. I try to format it, but it can't do it. I'll have to do some more testing to find out if it is my laptop or the card.

    benchmark

    Here are my benchmark results for the PNY and Kingmax 1GB cards. The Kingmax is empty, the PNY has about 218 MB of data.

    Tests performed on default settings, 20x in Pocket Mechanic 1.49.

    PNY
    Read Speed 0.75 MB/sec, 5.1x
    Write Speed 0.01 MB/sec, 0.1x

    Kingmax
    Read Speed 0.25 MB/sec, 1.7x
    Write Speed 0.10 MB/sec, 0.7x

    The odd thing is the actual test completes much faster on the Kingmax.

    When tested on USB2 card reader, both test around 30X read and 15x write in Sisoft Sandra.

    Been using a Kingmax 60x from NewEgg for over 18 months. No complaints at all.

    I would agree with you if you were right, but the Palm OS is crap.
