Re: Summary of A2 Write Speeds for RAW

Sorry to hear that...I have updated the list below with the other entries posted above and entered the details I have so far for the two 'rogue' Kingston Orange cards at the base of the list which now point to a very mixed picture for this particular card brand/type.

I've just ordered a pny 1GB so fingers crossed.

Cheers, Paul W (UK)

Paul,

thanks for your effort. Based on the results here I bought a second
1GB card (the first is an Ultra II), an orange Kingston. What a
dissapointment! I guess you have to add a second bad experience
with this card to your list. I'm getting consistently results of a
little over 25 seconds to write a single raw. I'm having a version
with the words "Kingston" and "MB"printed in some kind of dark
purple metallic ink. Codes on the backside are 9930407-004.A00 and
P746969X02. On the side is this code: 4B22D0690 8QC01G1MY1-2LA00
ass'y in Taiwan. This might help to uncover which specific memory
and controller is used in this card. In the mean time I'm putting
it up for sale straight away, I can't live with speeds as slow as
this...

In trying to decide which IGB card to get next I though I'd compile
a summary of all the posts for A2 write times for RAW and share it
with the forum. (I know - rather sad!)
