what time did you measure?

I just tested how long it took my new 7hi to save a RAW file, using
the procedure spelled out in Bryan Biggers's site:

http://webpages.charter.net/bbiggers/DCExperiments/html/dimage_flash_card_speeds.html

With the Ridata 512MB card ("20x"), it took about 16 seconds.
According to Bryan's list, the same kind of card in a 7i performs
the save operation in only about 10 seconds.

I also tested a Delkin 256MB, which also took 16s compared to 11s
with the 7i on the list.

When did you begin counting the time?
Right after the shutter sound or when the CF LED turned on?
As I remenber the times in Bryans list are only the LED-ON time.
I timed my CF card in my D7 by taking a raw image:

16s total (4s after the shutter sound the LED turns on + 12s while the LED is on).
