Sure, no problem at all. I benched mine with CrystalDiskMark, just mounted the drive and ran the test, its very straightforward!

I have downloaded CrystalDiscMark (CDM) but can't get the card to show in the CDM test window. I have taken the card out of my phone, put it in its SD adapter and put the adapter in my laptop. The card is showing as 'I' drive, but no I drive showing in CDM.

OK - Got I-drive to show in CDM (had to re-start CDM AFTER I had mounted the card - duh!).

These are some results - not sure how to paste the image in here.. I have no idea if good or bad and would welcome comments:

Interesting, not much better than my Class 2 Sandisk, worse in some areas:



The sequential read and write speeds are easily good enough for encoding/decoding 1080p though in each of our cards though (I find it records at about 2MB/s).

I guess the question is, if you are buying on Amazon, can you be sure that it's a genuine Lexar card?

This just out on XDA might be worth some comparisons

I wasn't aware of fakes being sold by amazon, maybe is it was being sold through Amazons storefront but not from Amazon directly.

Has anyone had any recent experiences with 32Gb microSD(HC) cards?
I am using an A-RAM class 4 micro SDHC card but today the SG S2 phone won't recognise it's installed, a week after I've loaded it with 5Gb of media files. The card doesn't appear to be faulty per se as I can view the folders and files in a card reader and scandisk doesn't report any issues. I've replaced it meantime with a 4Gb Kingston card which the phone recognises with no problems.
Over the last few days every time I bought the phone out of sleep mode it would scan the card.

Can anyone either recommend another card or suggest why the phone doesn't see the card? Could it be a 'phone' problem? Would I have added software that could cause this?

Thanks all,

Stephen

Have you tested the card with h2testw?  If there is a problem with the card (i.e. smaller capacity card reprogrammed fraudulently) it will detect any issues:

I have tested the card (all OK) and now reinserted it in the phone and it works but I suspect it'll glitch again at some stage. Either the card and phone are not 100% compatible or the phone is faulty.

What 32 Gb microSD cards are others using successfully?

Thanks again,
Stephen

I had a 32GB Class 4 Apacer in my SGS2, bought from PB Technologies. Then I lost the phone and had to replace everything and got a 32GB Class 4 A-Data from Ascent. Both have been perfectly fine in the phone. I use the card for storing music and video.
