How slow is the write speed on the PNY 32GB Elite Class 10 U1 microSDHC Flash Memory Card?

According to f3write, the average writing speed is 23.04 MB/s. No idea what the SanDick was. f3read is still running, not sure that’ll say the average read speed.

I think that’s the cheapest 32 GB micro SD card at my local Walmart. Should have looked if they have smaller ones. Don’t really need 32 GB for a voice recorder, that’s what I got it for. The only good thing is, you never have to delete anything, or at least not for a very long time.

I’m making sure the card isn’t fake, that’s what f3write and f3read does.

I could even copy all the files from the read only micro SD card to it, I probably won’t though, as I’d have to copy to my computer somewhere first, I only have one card reader. Unless I want to use the voice recorder as one reader, it probably is only USB 2.0.


  Data OK: 28.84 GB (60488768 sectors)
Data LOST: 0.00 Byte (0 sectors)
               Corrupted: 0.00 Byte (0 sectors)
        Slightly changed: 0.00 Byte (0 sectors)
             Overwritten: 0.00 Byte (0 sectors)
Average reading speed: 94.01 MB/s

The card isn’t fake, and it reads at almost 100 MB/s with my card reader, that’s what it says on the packing 100 MB/s read speed. Of course the write speed is way slower. It costs slightly under $8. Now to send her $8, don’t know what it was after tax, she bought something else too.

Voice recorder couldn’t create system file on it, because I didn’t format or delete the files f3write made. I just clicked OK, and then formatted it. I planned on formatting it in the voice recorder.

The card works in my Olympus WS-852. But if you don’t mind going to Fred Meyer, they have a Kingston for $5. Might be slower though, but cheaper. Well, I think my local Fred Meyer has one, your’s might not.

How much write speed do you need for 128 kb/s MP3s? Probably not much, and the voice recorder probably can’t write that fast anyways.

I made a test recording of a burp, and it worked.

Yes I formatted the card before running f3write.
